What should be included:
  • The gifts usually are presented to the bridesmaids at the rehearsal dinner or on the morning of the wedding day. It is a good idea to take a few minutes privately with each bridesmaid to thank her for participating in the wedding.
Additional costs:
  • Professional gift wrapping, or gift wrap and ribbons, will cost $3 to $15 extra for each gift.
  • Personalization of the gift -- such as engraving -- usually costs extra, probably less that $10.
