First you need to decide if you want to purchase a practical gift, or a fun/memorable keep sake gift. You also need to decide your budget per person and stick to that amount. If you have a wedding party with 3 people, you will likely be spending more per person than if you had a wedding party with 14 people.

Practical Gift Ideas for Bridesmaids:

1) Pay for a portion (or all) of their bridesmaids dress.
2) Pay for a portion (or all) of their wedding day hair or make up.
3) Take the girls out for a spa day, and treat them to a mani-pedi. They will probably be looking for a reason to do this before the wedding anyways!

Practical Gifts for Groomsmen:

1) Pay for their suit rental (or a portion of it)
2) Treat the boys to a day at the barber- get their beards and mustaches trimmed, or get their hair cut. This is a great way to ensure that they will all be looking in tip-top shape prior to the wedding day!

Not into gifts, but prefer gifting an experience? Consider taking your wedding party to a spa to spend time together and relax. If you are more of an outgoing crowd, consider Rumor's Comedy Club or a sporting event.

No matter what you do on your wedding day, your wedding party is standing up next to you to support you. The gift is a bonus, they probably just enjoy spending the time with you as you become Mr and Mrs!

All the best planning your special days!
