Brides are always coming into the store and asking our advice on any number of wedding-related things. One question that pops up almost constantly is, "What do you think I should get for my bridesmaid gifts?" The answer is simple: an accessory. Whether it's a fabulous clutch purse or an amazing pair of earrings, choose something that not only complements the bridesmaid dress you've chosen, but is also something she can use again and again!
Pictured above is just a small sampling of items in our store that would make an excellent bridesmaid gift. A clutch bag is not only useful and stylish for the wedding day, it's also a great accessory for any girl to have. A night out on the town is so much easier when you can ditch the cumbersome shoulder bag and carry something small and chic instead.
A pair of earrings or a necklace are also an excellent choice. After all, what girl doesn't love jewelry? Choose a neutral pair or earrings for all of your girls- something that can also be worn to next year's New Year's Eve party or a fancy dinner out on the town. Rather than purchase the same pair for all of your girls, consider getting them each a pair that reflects their own unique style, while still being similar enough that they can all wear them for the wedding.
Bags and earrings are definitely the easiest and most common choices, but a fascinator or brooch is another great idea. You may have to have bridesmaids who are a little funkier in their personal style to be able to pull off a fascinator at another event, but if they've got the personality, then go for it!
If the weather forecast predicts it will be a bit chilly on the wedding night, consider a warm pashmina to coordinate with the bridesmaid dress as your gift of choice. Practical, pretty and definitely re-usable, it's the kind of gift that just about anyone can use, especially if they live in chilly New England!
