Believe it or not, of the thousands and thousands of questions throughout the wedding planning process, one of the most frequently asked questions is actually, “What do I get my Bridesmaids?”

The truth is, there really is no perfect way to thank your girls for standing by your side on your wedding day, so it’s best to stop Googling “Bridesmaid gift ideas” and just think about your group of friends, and what they would actually want/use after the wedding.  You don’t have to get them all monogrammed clutches to wear to your wedding (you can get them monogrammed clutches to wear out the following weekend!), and you definitely don’t have to get them fancy shmancy robes that they may not wear more than 5 times.  Be thoughtful, be generous, and most of all, be proud to give out your Bridesmaid gifts!
