When your big day rolls around, you’ll no doubt want to treat those who’ve helped with wedding planning to some lovely wedding thank you gifts. That said, wedding thank you gifts can be a bit of a minefield, because a whole host of people will undoubtedly have played a part in bringing your big day together. Make sure they know how much you appreciate their help with a little token of thanks.
Your wedding thank you gifts don’t have to be extravagant or expensive – it’s the thought that counts, after all. Your friends and family will just appreciate being thought of when you had so many other things on your mind.
Who you buy treats for is entirely up to you, but traditionally, couples tend to get their bridesmaids, users, and parents a little something. And then there are the guests… you might want to thank everyone for coming with a small token for each of them, too!
Here, we’ve rounded up the best wedding thank you gifts for your bridesmaids, gifts for groomsmen, gifts for parents and gifts for your guests (sort of like wedding favours). You’re sure to find something you love in this lot – happy browsing!
