Outdoor temperatures are increasing, swimming pools everywhere have opened their gates, and the words on everyone’s lips are “summer vacation.” The welcome arrival of outdoor barbecue weather and longer days is accompanied by the unofficial start of “wedding season.” As the big day draws near, couples everywhere are signing off their approval on final wedding details and consulting wedding checklists to make sure nothing is forgotten.
One of the most commonly overlooked and last-minute wedding details is choosing wedding gifts for the wedding party. This may seem like a small task, but there are many intricacies surrounding this decision. Before we dive in to The Best Groomsmen Wedding Gifts that Sizzle, we’ve put together the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about wedding gift ideas for the wedding party.
Who do I need to buy gifts for in my wedding party?
The short answer is: If you have asked them to serve in your wedding in any capacity, a thank you gift is appropriate. To break that down a bit further, you should include: Best Man, Maid of Honor, all groomsmen, all bridesmaids, ring bearer, flower girl, ushers and guest book attendants. In addition, if you have asked a family member or friend to carry the responsibility of serving as wedding day coordinator or “go to” person in case of emergency, include them on this list. Many couples also choose to purchase gifts for their parents, and finally, one another.
When should I give wedding gifts to my wedding party?
This all depends on the gifts you choose. Traditionally, couples gift their bridesmaids and groomsmen at the bachelor and bachelorette parties, but many couples choose to give gifts at the rehearsal dinner or on the day of the wedding.
How much should I spend on wedding gifts for my wedding party?
There is no hard and fast rule on wedding gift spending, and individual gift spend ranges vary widely by each couple. It’s best to discuss your budget with your significant other and go from there. Be sure to consider your Best Man and Maid of Honor gifts – each of them should each receive a special individual gift as well.
Now that your most pressing questions have been answered, let’s dive in to our exclusive guide to The Best Groomsmen Wedding Gifts that Sizzle for all the men who said “yes” to standing with you as you say “I do.”
