Getting engaged and planning a wedding is one of the most special times in a woman's life. While it's important to get the big aspects - selecting a DJ, venue and caterer - out of the way first, it can actually be the more detailed parts of planning that require the most attention. An important component of wedding planning is selecting not only the perfect bridesmaid dresses for the ladies in your bridal party, but also a gorgeous gift to thank them for their time and patience.
Here are a few jewelry options that are sure to impress your ladies-in-waiting:
The domestic goddess herself, Martha Stewart, recently discussed the best gifts for bridesmaids in Martha Stewart Weddings magazine. First up on the list? Gorgeous and fun stackable statement rings. A grouping of rings can easily match the color of the dress each bridesmaid will be wearing, and offers the women a chance to don one or multiple rings down the line.
As an added bonus, your bridesmaids will get to remember the fun times they had at your wedding each and every time the wear the baubles. A great option to give out to your gals prior to the big day is a collection like the 1.58 TCW Round Cubic Zirconia Tritone Ribbed Stackable Ring Set, which seamlessly mixes metals for a polished look.
If you're looking to present your bridesmaids with a more personalized gift, then creating custom charm bracelets is a suitable option. While you don't need to fill up the bracelets entirely, it might be a nice gesture to pick up one or two charms that represent each woman and your wedding day. You could also opt for a more standard charm bracelet like the Tutone Diamond Accent "S"-Link PavΘ Heart Charm Bracelet In 18k Gold-Plated to help unify the group in style.
Since earrings are popular among most women, a thoughtful gift for your bridesmaids could be a pair of sparkly drop earrings. Whether you are drawn to a vintage style like the 4.55 TCW Round Cubic Zirconia Silvertone Drop Earrings or prefer something funkier such as the Round Crystal Accent 14k Yellow Gold-Plated Filigree Pear-Shaped Drop Earrings, your bridesmaids are sure to appreciate the kind gesture.
While any of these choices will do, it's important to make sure the gift you select will look fabulous with your gown and the dresses your bridesmaids will don.
