Bridal Inspiration: Will You Be My Bridesmaid? The Best Gifts to Give Your Bridal Party
“I couldn’t say ‘I do’ without you”
When it comes to planning your big day, it’s the little details that can make all the difference. From the bouquets to the table décor, there’s so much fine tuning that goes into making everything picture perfect. But of course, you couldn’t do it alone. Without your bridesmaids to help support you through the prepping and the planning, it would be only too easy to be overwhelmed.
So why not considering giving something back to your best girls, as thanks for their loyalty, laughter and love towards you.
At Wakefields, we think it’s a wonderfully sentimental idea to give a little token gift to your bridesmaids, when you ask them to be part of your wedding. And whilst flowers or chocolate can make a lovely gesture, we believe a piece of jewellery makes a lovely gift which they can cherish for years to come, and also wear on your big day – providing you choose the perfect piece for them!
So to eliminate any confusion, and make the present process as stress-free as possible, we’ve selected a few pieces in store to highlight, which we believe will make beautiful bridesmaid gifts.
If you know your girlfriends have their ears pierced, earrings will make a wonderful gift. One of the biggest wedding jewellery mistakes though, is choosing designs which won’t transcend style-wise beyond the big day. But if you stick to classic, timeless designs, you’ll ensure that they’ll get the longevity out of them.
Top Tip: To avoid style arguments, opt for stud earrings over hoops or drops, they’re not only universally flattering but will complement any hair-do your bridesmaids will wear on the day.

If you’ve been lifelong friends it’s highly possible that at some point during your friendship you’ve exchanged friendship bracelets as a way to celebrate your bond together. So why not upgrade from the braided pieces of coloured string you might’ve worn, and opt for a delicate design in a lasting metal.
Top Tip: Why not choose a bangle or bracelet that can be engraved – whether you choose a special quote, date or initials, it’ll make the gift truly personal and meaningful to your friend.

Keeping your friendship close to your heart, literally, try finding delicate necklaces for your bridesmaids. Whether you opt for gemstone studded creations, or keep things simple with intricate openwork designs, the pendants you choose can be as simplistic or as meaningful as you like. Our personal favourites are heart-shaped designs, which are not only symbolic but are incredibly versatile.
Top Tip: Consider the length of the chains. If you’ll be wanting your bridesmaids to wear the necklaces on the day of your wedding, make sure you consider the length of the chain to ensure that it beautifully complements their dresses. For example, if they’ll be donning sweetheart necklines, it’s best to choose a shorter chain that falls to the collarbone for a statement look.
