You’ve carefully curated the perfect bridal look for your wedding day. Your hair, make-up, tiara and veil perfectly accent your stunning dress and you’re ready to walk down the aisle.
But not yet! Don’t forget your bridesmaids. By accessorizing your bridal party with care and precision, you can ensure their look accents yours. Carefully chosen jewellery also makes a great thank you gift for the big day.
These top 5 ideas for bridesmaid thank you gifts are great options for your ladies in waiting:
1. Pearl Necklaces
Freshwater pearls make a stunning statement on your bridal party. Pearl jewellery can be very affordable, but still luxurious and thoughtful.
The theme and style of your wedding will dictate the length of your pearl necklaces. Modern weddings will look best with choker style or necklaces that scoop no deeper than the collarbone. This clean cut look will accent a modern wedding perfectly.
If you are looking for a more romantic look, long strings of pearls look especially nostalgic looped or doubled around the neck. Look for lengths that are longer than 23 centimetres to achieve this sweet look for your bridesmaids.
2. Cubic Zirconia bracelets
Add sparkle with this cost-effective bridesmaid thank you gift. CZ bracelets are typically made from less expensive material and have cubic zirconia set to look like a diamond. They sparkle and glow like a real diamond but without the high cost.
