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.
The mother of the bride holds a highly esteemed position within the wedding party, and she should look the part.

After all, she'll be the second most noticed woman in the room.
There are many bridal options available to moms as they shop for that moment-defining outfit. We've listed flattering mother-of-the-bride dresses that feature an array of tailored touches.

If you happen to have two major dates in your future — a baby's due date and a wedding — well, soon-to-be Mrs. Mom, you have much to celebrate. But first, take a deep breath and pick the wedding dress. Size your maternity wedding dress according to what your due date will be on your wedding day, and size up to cover your bases: It's always easier to tailor a larger dress. Then the sky's the limit! You can a choose a silhouette that includes a flowing A-line skirt and a high empire waist or, in the opposite direction, a form-fitting style that shows off your great legs and features a flattering neckline. If your bump will be small on the big day and you would prefer to hide it, a peplum waist is the perfect camouflage. (Bonus: In some cases, you can double dip by using your wedding dress as your baby shower gown.) No matter how far along you are, your wedding will be a celebration of love and life. We've rounded up some gorgeous maternity wedding gowns from our favorite online shops, including Etsy, Nordstrom and David's Bridal. Cheers to you!
Aside from the bride, the sweetest sight at the wedding is the flower girl. Holding her own with a dainty basket of petals, she is a vision of loveliness when she walks down the aisle. It's such fun to pick out a flower girl dress to blend in with the ensembles of the bridal party, especially for a light and bright spring or summer wedding. Your little princess can be traditional and wear white or ivory, or she can wear a solid color taken from the wedding palette. Some fashion-forward brides may even choose an interesting print that suits the mood of the wedding. Since the flower girl is something of a mascot, she can be command a truly unique aesthetic. Here, we've rounded up some the prettiest flower girl dresses from Nordstrom, J. Crew, BHLDN and more.
