As a bridesmaid or maid of honor

Would you expect a gift? MOH is only doing the bridal shower, nothing else.

What type of gift would you expect?

  • I wouldn't expect a gift, but it's nice to give to your maid of honor and bridesmaids. It doesn't have to be extravagant or expensive either. I think it's just a thoughtful jester. It's a way to say "Thank you for helping me and being in my wedding"

  • Yes, bridesmaids and groomsmen typically get a token gift. (we gave our groomsmen engraved flasks).

  • I think that's a great gift and since it's handmade, it's from the heart <3

  • I think if you paid for their dresses then that's a gift in itself. If the girls paid for their own dresses then a little gift would be nice. I think a really good idea is to get/make them jewelry you want them to wear in the wedding. Give it to them the day of the wedding while you all are getting ready.
