Bridesmaids' gifts show your bevy of besties how much you appreciate the support they gave you throughout your wedding prep and the big day. These bridesmaids helped you select a wedding dress, offered a shoulder cry on and laughed with you during the long, fun and stressful wedding day. Giving a fabulous bridesmaids gift is a traditional gesture of appreciation. We love bridesmaids gifts that are stylish, useful and possess universal appeal, particularly if they are cushy "extras" that your bridesmaids typically wouldn't have bought for themselves. So don't fret: We've rounded up the coolest bridesmaids gifts, including pieces from Anthropologie, Amazon and ASOS, to give you a list of gifts they will truly love.
Weddings offer a rare opportunity to gather all of one's favorite people -- his and yours -- into one room for a fabulous time. Far before the wedding day arrives, you'll have chosen your most intimate friends to take their positions within the bridal party as bridesmaids and groomsmen. Thanking these special bridal party members with a gift is customary. You can do so before the wedding at various points: during the bachelor or bachelorette weekend or at the rehearsal dinner, for instance. Others do it while getting ready for the wedding, especially if the gift is something the guests might use to spruce themselves up, such as earrings or cuff links. Below, we've gathered an affordable selection of wedding party gifts. Believe it: For $10 and under, you can offer your bridesmaids and groomsmen gifts they'll use and enjoy for years to come from Amazon, Etsy, Walmart and other popular online stores.
It's the most wonderful time of the year — yep, sale time — and no store does holiday sales quite like Nordstrom. The retailer is currently offering serious discounts in every department, but if you're in the market for a special occasion dress, the Nordstrom sale is pretty much a no-brainer, whether you're a bride-to-be or just an attendee. The selection is stocked with every style, including rehearsal dinner options, engagement dresses, bridal shower dresses, wedding guest dresses and even holiday party picks — all for less. Want to check one or more of these off your shopping list? Scroll on for 10 stylish sale picks you'll want to add to your cart ASAP.
There's no rule book that says a wedding gown must be white. Modern brides are embracing color, a trend possibly first sparked by Gwen Stefani's custom dip-dyed and hand-painted pink ombre wedding gown by John Galliano for Christian Dior back 2002. After Gwen's rule-breaking move, Reese Witherspoon got married in a pale pink gown by Monique Lhuillier and Jessica Biel wore a blush-toned Giambattista Valli creation for her marriage to Justin Timberlake. Sure, white and ivory will remain the wedding gown go-tos, but many other colorful dresses have us swooning, particularly for summer weddings. Here, we've rounded up a variety of wedding dresses in shades of blush, metallics, yellow, blue and beyond from David's Bridal, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and more. It's our ode to the rainbow, and we think you should go for it!
Everyone loves a traditional wedding registry that includes every essential accoutrement for feathering a newlywed nest. That said, some wedding guests choose to take some creative leeway by gifting the newlyweds with uber-special personalized gifts. We have curated such gifts in our fantastic list by including personalized gifts for couples that further style or functionality — or both. So commemorate the couple's big day with these one-of-a-kind items from Neiman Marcus, Uncommon Goods, Shutterfly and more.
