Bridesmaids are any bride’s most trusted tribe who help her get through the entire wedding journey, by executing their roles as expected. And what’s better than a bridesmaid jewelry gift to show them appreciation and mark your special day!
There may not be enough words to thank the maid of honor or bridesmaids for being by your side on your big day. After all they played such an integral role in the entire process that you’ll be forever grateful. That’s why fine jewelry makes for excellent gifts for the occasion.
Bridesmaids and the maid of honor invest their time, money, and emotions to make a bride’s big day memorable. Picture this – they’re all flying in (driving our to your wedding location), wearing the dress you picked (hopefully sans frills), and keeping your jitters at bay, so treat them some high quality bridesmaid jewelry gifts to show your gratitude. While it’s easy to find cheap bridesmaids gifts online, brides would probably choose to give gifts that her girl gang would actually want to wear more than, like once? Thus, we recommend dainty (pocket-friendly) diamond jewelry for as gifts for bridesmaids as well as maid of honor gifts.
The tradition behind having Bridesmaids in a wedding
Bridesmaids traditionally all wear the same colors, and the historic reason for this was to confuse evil spirits. Originally the bridesmaids would not just be dressed to look like each other, but to look like the bride herself. When Queen Victoria married Prince Albert in 1840, all of her twelve bridesmaids were dressed in identical white dresses to compliment Victoria’s beautiful white, satin gown. Reportedly, Queen Victoria and her bridesmaids kicked off the tradition of royal brides wearing white instead of silver on their wedding day!
The head bridesmaid, known as the maid of honor if she is unmarried or matron of honor if she is married, is by tradition in charge of the other bridesmaids. It would be the maid of honor’s duty to give out chores to the other bridesmaids to help in the planning of the wedding, she would look after the bride and help her get ready for the ceremony. #BridesmaidTraditions
