It is acceptable for the bride to give jewelry to the bridesmaids as a thank you gift and also to wear during the event. This is a method of making sure that there are no fashion mishaps and that the theme of the wedding is carried through to the accessories.
Keeping this in mind, there are a few things that the bride must consider when gift giving:
• Take into consideration each individual bridesmaid’s tastes and preferences.
• Acknowledge and be aware of any allergies.
• Obtain appropriate sizes of jewelry.
• Check to see which individuals have pierced ears, if giving earrings.
When gift giving, the bride does not have to give every bridesmaid identical pieces of jewelry. The theme of wedding can be carried through to the jewelry by giving similar but different pieces. It is perfectly fine for the each bridesmaid to wear different accessories. In fact the more you personalize and give each bridesmaid a similar but different look, the happier they will be.
