One of my favorite parts of planning my own wedding was asking my best friends to be bridesmaids. Let's be honest, your girlfriends are about to do a lot for you over the course of your engagement (from dress buying, to the bridal shower, bachelorette party, and even holding your dress up for you as you attempt to use the restroom on your wedding night). They're dedicated, and deserve to know just how much they mean to you! A great way to show your girlfriends how much you appreciate their friendship is to put together a thoughtful gift box as you ask them to stand by your side during your "I do."
I've put together a list of items to consider when creating boxes for your bridal party (these work great for groomsmen too)!
Liquor - I can remember a few tequila filled nights with my besties that can't be mentioned here. Add a little shot glass from a place you've traveled to together. Mini champagne bottles are great here as well!
Make-up - Do you subscribe to Birchbox or Glossybox? Split the box up and distribute make up samples throughout your bridesmaid boxes. Who doesn't love to try a new beauty product? This is also a budget friendly option.
Personalized Card - Pick up a personalized card from SFLL shop with your friend's name in calligraphy. Take your time and write a thoughtful note.
Photos - In this box, I taped a photo of my friend and I on her wedding day. You can also include extra photos of the two of you and place them in the box. Dig deep!
Personalized gift boxes and cards are available in the shop.
