Wedding Tips- Gift Ideas for the Bridesmaids and Groomsmen

For my wedding, we struggled with trying to find the best wedding gifts for our wedding party. the knot Wedding Shop was a great place to find common, popular gifts, almost all of which you can get personalized as well.


Personalized wedding albums. It’s not too expensive and this is something I think my bridesmaids truly enjoyed as it is very personal.

After we received all our wedding photos, I started compiling photo books of the wedding day, recapping the days events. I personalized each one with photos of the specific bridesmaid and tried to include as many photos of that bridesmaid in the book as possible. I also did a dedication page in the beginning to each of them as well. They seemed really touched by this gesture and they all seemed to genuinely love the idea. I did all my photo books on Shutterfly. They are constantly having sales and deals, so if you’re a member you can be alerted to deals and purchased books during their sale.


We never did find a really good idea for the groomsmen. We did personalized cufflinks. Afterwards, a friend of mine told us a really good gift idea. For a wedding he attended, the groom bought them all suits. He was able to go to find some places in the LA Asian district that made them for less than $200 per suit. So each of the groomsman walked away with a fitted suit that they can wear over and over again. Given how expensive it is to rent a tux, this seems like a great idea.
