Bridesmaids do a lot of work when it comes to getting a wedding in gear. Show your bridal party some appreciation with a special gift.
Everyone involved in a wedding tends to fuss over the bride and groom more than anyone, but it is all those involved, especially in the bridal party, that help bring everything together. They help plan the events, the maid of honor takes on a load of organizing and making sure the bride does not drive herself crazy, and all together they make sure that the entire party has as much fun before and during the big day. So how does a bride thank her best gals? While there are plenty of ways to thank them through little gestures over your future years as continued friends, little bridesmaids gifts just prior to or just after the wedding make a great reminder as well.
When it comes to thinking of gifts, especially ones that express thanks and gratitude, it is best to be as personal and specific as possible. If you’re planning a gift for the entire bridal party, then a themed gift makes a great choice. Whether it is directly tied into the wedding itself, especially if the event had a theme or overall motif, or is more of an inside joke related to secret shenanigans shared during the bachelorette or bridal shower, these sorts of gifts really bring the entire group together and make you all feel more connected and special. This can be a nice scrapbook of events, a random gag that references an inside joke that only you and your gals will get, another post wedding party to commemorate the event and the memories shared, these sorts of all encompassing gifts help you all create new memories for you all to cherish and really consider special.
Another gift, especially for a party comprised of many different but many important people to you, is to make completely personalized gifts. You can choose to find person specific items that show exactly how much you care about each individual, or you can mix the previous idea with a more personalized one by getting your bridesmaids charm bracelets. With charm bracelets, you can start each girl off with a charm or two that is specific to them as a person and/or to your relationship with that person. These little gifts are not only meaningful but useful when it comes to accessorizing as well!
Gifts don’t have to be specific to each individual in order to be appreciated. There are other great options that can appeal to your group of bridesmaids. They’ve already spent money on their bridesmaid dresses, so give them clutch purses or necklaces to compliment their look. Try to pick neutral colored bags and jewelry so that they can use it with many outfits in the future. Another nice option is a scarf or shawl that they can use if it’s an outdoor wedding and might be a little chilly.
No matter what you choose, you and your party will never forget the process from beginning to end and will be thankful they got to spend such a special day with you and make it all possible.

Chicastic’s newest arrival comes just in time for the holiday season. Our sequined peacock motif one ring wedding clutch is the perfect clutch for the upcoming festivities. Its bright, dazzling peacock design gives the clutch an Old Hollywood feel but don’t let that fool you into thinking you can only dress it up in a vintage way (although it does make a great Halloween piece if you are going for the 1920’s flapper look). You can just as easily rock this clutch to a New Year’s Eve party and just about anywhere else you want to stand out from the crowd. It comes in green, pink, purple, and gold so get yours today; we predict all colors will sell out before Christmas!
Just about anyone who has or will plan a wedding has heard the bridal tradition “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, a sixpence in your shoe” at some point during the planning of the wedding. However, not everyone is familiar with the history behind it and what makes it so important to a brides wedding ensemble. The truth is, the origin of this English rhyme isn’t exactly known, but can be dated back to the Victorian era when it was said that keeping these traditions bring good luck to the bride to be and groom. Each piece is said to bring a different form of positive energy and good karma on the wedding day, for example, something old represents continuity, something new represents the couple creating a new union, and something borrowed can either represent borrowed happiness or a token of love from a friend or family member. The something blue stands for purity and love, and “a sixpence in your shoe”? Well, a sixpence is a silver coin that dates back to 17th-20th century and a coin in you shoe represents good fortune throughout your marriage.
This age old tradition is still being kept alive by today’s brides and nowadays, brides are coming up with fun, unique ways to incorporate this tradition into their wedding ceremony. Chicastic has been very helpful to brides in helping them find ways to keep the something blue part alive through our stock of bridal clutches, and stunning jewelry.
