I know, it’s relentless, not as if you don’t have enough to organise, YOU have to THINK of presents to give others! What a bother! By ‘others’ I mean your wedding party, no, not ALL your wedding guests, those that have listened for hours on end and attempted to express an opinion on the extremely impossible decision of pink orchids or white for your bouquet and if you should have white table linen or black, you know, your bridesmaids and ushers, that lovely lot, who you are basically dressing from head to toe and grooming to look the part. In addition, you have to shower them with goodies?! Great excuse to go shopping though – no harm in buying one for yourself too..you know, just so you all match.
So, what is a suitable gift and how much should one spend? Personally I think it’s nice to give something that your bridesmaids and ushers can keep as a reminder of your wedding. Jewellery, personalised, budget permitting, is a winner and goes down very well.
For Ushers, I’m loving the stunning Valere Primus range and lucky for us, apparently minimalistic watches are very ‘on trend’ at the moment.. So not only will you be giving your Ushers a very generous gift, they will be the envy of their friends as well.
