    Default When to give bridesmaids gifts

    I was going to give my bridesmaids there present in the morning when we are getting ready at my house instead of giving them out at the wedding or I wondered if it's supposed to be at the wedding during speeches?

    I think traditionally it's during the speeches but don't think many stick to that now, I've been to three weddings this year and all had been given before the day. I'll be giving mine the night before as I'm giving them jewellery to wear on the day x

    Yep, I'll be the night before too as I'm giving them earrings. Not doing the big present giving during speeches as we want to keep them short and sweet!

    There are no rules really and I don't think you need to feel obliged. I've bought them earrings and compact mirrors to give them the night before (but also bought their dresses etc so it's not as if a gift is expected, just an extra thank you). If you want to get them a gift I'd go for something they can use on the day and then again afterwards - maybe a bag or some jewellery?

    I guess it also depends on what you want to give. Is it big/small/personal/universal? When I was a bridesmaid on my sister's wedding, I decided to give it on the balcony at night, when the sky was full of stars, because I gave them...star! I took telescope and show them, that now they own their star from Kingdom of Universe. It was really touching
