We know that the decisions for a bride are endless, so what with it being our Wedding Week and all, we wanted to lend you a hand (as we do) by giving you a few suggestions as to what you can gift your bridesmaids on your special day. In the interest of taking one more thing off your plate pre-wedding, we reached out to a few of our favorite fashion insiders to find out exactly what they gifted their bridesmaids in hopes that it will give you some inspiration. Consider this our wedding gift to you.

 

Laura Vassar

Designer for Brock Collection

 
“I wanted to give my bridesmaids useful pieces for their wardrobe that they would be able to cherish not only for this occasion! The day of our wedding was spent by the ocean, on the beach across from my parents’ home in Newport Beach, where our wedding was held. I gifted my bridesmaids Stone Cold Fox silk robes with a lace trim. They were able to wear them over swimsuits at the beach and while getting ready—they were perfect for a California Summer wedding!”

Art Director & Contributor, Vogue

 
“My wedding was kind of an unconventional one. No wedding registry, no classic wedding photographer, and, to tell you a secret, we didn’t have our wedding rings until the night before! For the bridesmaids my present was to make them look and feel as beautiful as I did with the Emilio Pucci dresses that I had custom-made for them by my dear friend Peter Dundas—definitely bridesmaids dresses they wanted to keep! They were also treated to a beautiful spa day and I made sure one of them caught the bouquet of course!”

 

Farrell Crowley

Global Director of Events & Special Projects, Tory Burch

 
“Our guests flew far distances to celebrate with us in Harbour Island, so I opted for mini travel kits, and personalized J.Crew pajamas for my bridesmaids. Each of them received a Tory Burch toiletries bag, filled with some of my favorite travel products including Bumble and bumble shampoo and conditioner, Hampton Sun sunscreen, Omorovicza lip balm, Sisley toning lotion and SK-II face and eye masks for the day of the wedding. I wanted to do something special for my maids of honor, my sister Marjorie, and sister-in-law, Ashley, so I gave them each a tiny gold necklace with a floating diamond to match the one I wear every day, packaged in a brightly colored silk Marie Hélène de Taillac jewelry bag to commemorate the weekend.”
