8 Ways to Thank Your Bridal Party for all of Their Support on Your Big Day
From asking them to join your wedding party to giving them a special shout out on your big day, there are many things you can do to thank your bridal party and make them feel the love.
Your bridal party is there for you throughout the entire wedding planning process, as well as on your big day. Let’s be real, you couldn’t do it all without them! From the bachelorette party to walking down the aisle, you have so much to be thankful for when it comes to the people you pick to stand by your side. Not to mention all of the reasons you asked them to be a part of your big day in the first place.
8 Creative Ways to Thank Your Bridal Party
Ask Them in a Unique Way
Kick off the festivities by asking each member of your bridal party to be a part of your big day in a special and personalized way. Make a box with some of their favorite things, toss in a personalized mug, engraved necklace, whatever you want to make the package feel special. Hand deliver each box, that way you can see your friends’ responses.
Gift Accessories to Wear at the Wedding
From socks to jewelry, there’s no shortage of accessories out there that you can gift your wedding party to wear on (and after) the big day. Look for classic accessories that they will enjoy long after the wedding, like a personalized necklace or fun dress socks for the men.
Write a Personalized Note
There’s nothing like a handwritten note to make someone feel special in our technology-filled world. Give each member of your party a handwritten note on the night before the big day. Make sure to mention all of the things you appreciate them doing to make your day so special.
Plan a Special Dance or Thank You Toast
When you clank glasses and say thanks to mom and dad, or whoever helped bring your big day together, it’s a great time to also say thanks to your bridal party. Plan what you want to say ahead of time so that you can come up with a condensed way to thank each person and make them feel special.
Give Them Personalized Introductions
Before the Bride and Groom make their entrance into the party, have the DJ introduce the members of your wedding party one at a time, or in couples. Each couple or individual could even come up with their own little dance as they enter the party on cue. This helps everyone attending the wedding put a name to faces and know the special people who are a part of your big day.
Get Them a Ride Home
Make sure your wedding party can drink and enjoy the night without worrying about how they will get home at the end of the night. Arrange some type of car service for them to get home. It could be as simple as having an Uber lined up, or you could kick it up a notch and have a limo take everyone to their respective homes or hotels.
Invite Them to Slumber with You the Night Before
Have a slumber party the night before the wedding and invite all of your bridesmaids or groomsmen to join in the fun. You can provide dinner, snacks, drinks – the works. The goal is to create a fun environment where they can relax and enjoy, while you all discuss what the next day will bring.
Help Cover Some Costs
Help your bridal party cover some costs wherever possible. Weddings are expensive but if there’s any room in your budget to help pay for some of the expenses your wedding party will incur, it’ll be much appreciated. From makeup and hair to bridesmaid dresses, even if you can only afford to pay for part of it, it will be so appreciated.
