Bridesmaid Gifts | Night Before the Wedding

The days before my wedding were so exciting and busy. I had hair and beauty appointments pretty much every day. There was lots of decorating and organising to do with the hall and marquee to sort. There was lots of decisions to be made and people to coordinate. It was hectic, a little stressful, but 100% worth it. I'm so thankful to the family and friends that helped us out before, during and after. Some of the most important ones to me are my bridesmaids.

The night before the wedding we went out for dinner with the bridal party. It was like a big reward for all the work done on the Thursday and Friday. It was time to finally start to relax. After dinner we went out for drinks and lots of our family and friends joined us. The celebrations has started. At about 11pm my bridesmaids and I headed home and had my last sleepover as a Miss.

They have spoilt me rotten with presents, my home hen and my away hen... now it was my turn to give the presents. I had everything lined up ready to give them the night before, all with a theme of the sleepover, getting ready in the morning and the wedding. I wanted my bridesmaids gifts to be things they'd wear or use.

I had thought about giving the presents in the morning but part of the present was pyjamas and I knew we'd want to wear it all at night. Pink was the colour of the girls' dresses, the colour scheme of the wedding and quite frankly the most obvious Jenna colour. All of the girls got pale pink Bridesmaid robes. They are lightweight and silky because we were getting married in Summer and no-one needs a big fluffy dressing gown. They were perfect for over their pyjamas and in all the photos on the morning of the wedding. 

One of the last things I managed to buy was the actual pyjamas. Primark had some bride tribe ones but they were never in our colour scheme. I managed to get a Bride to be set for myself but had to keep looking out for bridesmaids ones. I ended up buying them from Studio, somewhere I'd never even thought of. They were the perfect mix of pink and glitter. They were just right for pairing up with their slippers from Primark.

The part of the gift that I bought first and hoped would be something they could keep forever was a Personalised Bridesmaid Box. The other colour in our wedding colour scheme was rose gold so the vinyl wording on the top just had to be rose gold. The boxes have a magnetic snap shut and cream bow. They're a good size for fitting a Champagne flute and other goodies.

Each of my bridesmaids are different, with their own personality and interests, so I gifted them a perfume to match - that's the good thing about the Vera Wang Princess perfumes there's a few styles to choose from. The three I gifted were Vera Wang Glam Princess, Vera Wang Preppy Princess and Vera Wang Rock Princess

The last gifts were rose gold, personalised, ones to be used on the day and kept forever. The bridesmaid dresses had lots of gorgeous lace around the shoulders and I had thought about giving a necklace but decided to go with a bracelet instead. I love Tiffany's bead bracelets and the Cornish Bluebelle Rose Gold Beaded Bracelets totally reminded me of Tiffany's. They're simple but beautiful and hopefully something the girls will wear again.

Lastly, it wouldn't be the morning of the wedding without some fizz and I made sure we wouldn't get our drinks muddled up with Personalised champagne flutes. You can imagine the boomerangs and instagram photos taken with all 4 of us and our personalised glasses. I did think of putting bridesmaid on the glass but I wanted them to be things that can be used years after the wedding and still look classy.

One or two things that escaped my photos were personalised coat hangers that kept the dresses organised. I bought them from Up Down Over and Under on Instagram because they were personalised with rose gold writing and bows. I also gave the girls some simple earrings on a personalised card, which kept me busy on the Wednesday before the wedding.
