Giving gifts to the wedding party is a lovely opportunity to give those people closest to you something to thank them for all their efforts and support throughout the wedding.

Giving gifts is a custom, although wedding party members are not entitled to them because it is optional. It depends on your preferences and budget for the wedding.

The traditional wedding gift recipients are the mother and father of the bride, the maid of honor, the best man, and the bridesmaids.

If you want to keep down the costs, you can buy gifts just for them.

But if you have a larger budget for gift giving, feel free to give gifts to other wedding party members as well such as the groomsmen, the father and mother of the groom, the flower girl and the ring bearer.

Here are the wedding party members that the bride and the groom should give gifts to, and some wonderful gift ideas you can give to them as a token of appreciation.

1. Maid of Honor

The maid of honor is the right-hand woman of the bride.

She is someone the bride relies on for everything such as planning, picking the bride and bridesmaid’s dresses, organizing the bachelorette party and helping the bride on the wedding day.

With so much responsibility, it is nice to give the maid of honor a special gift for all of her hard work.

Here are some fabulous gift ideas for your maid of honor she will truly treasure:

Pendant Necklace

Show your love and utmost appreciation to your maid of honor with a pendant necklace that has her first name initial in the front.
