  • Etiquette dictates yes, but now-a-days and depending on the people you don't necessarily have to. Some common wedding party gifts are jewelery, make-up kits and flasks.

  • I gave my bridesmaid jewelry that I wanted them to wear as a gift. My maid of honors gift was a little more expensive than the rest.

  • The girls in ours are getting the jewelry for the wedding, the guys are getting flasks. I got a big jar candle when I was in my brothers wedding. I was also in 2 weddings that I didn't get one. I wasn't offended...weddings are expensive but some people might be..

  • Each bridesmaid and maid of honour at my wedding got a piece of jewelry to thank them for being a part of my wedding party. Just a way of thanking them since they help to make your day special.

  • We did jewelry for the bridesmaids and Maid of Honor, then I think we got the Maid of Honor a gift card too. Do what you want. Now days there are no real "rules".
