Gifts to Show How Much You Appreciate Your Bridesmaids
Wedding bells are on the horizon, and though you may not have been a bridezilla, you have a squad that has gone above and beyond for you over a long stretch of months; they’ve been there to help with planning, pick the wedding dress, and keep you sane. Perhaps your bridal party received a few items when you asked them to be your bridesmaids initially; (while most contents were likely bride tribe swag), now you want to give something else to show your appreciation for all their dedication and hard work. (If you’ve just been proposed to, not to worry, there are some bride tribe suggestions below as well.)
