While a bride certainly isn't
required to buy her bridesmaids the jewelry they'll wear on her
wedding day, it's become a common tradition to do so. It's not hard to see why
matching bridesmaid jewelry sets have become the norm. For brides who have a
very specific wedding party vision in mind, this is the best way to ensure that
all of their bridesmaids will accessorize with something they like.
More than that, though, it's
also a nice gesture. Whether it's earrings, a necklace, a bracelet,
or a combination of things, gifting your bridesmaids jewelry is a thoughtful
way to say thank you for everything they've done for your big day.
When picking out a bridesmaid
jewelry set, come up with a price range you're comfortable with and go from
there. Jewelry can be pricey, and if you're buying for a group of friends that
can add up quickly. Pick pieces that go well with their bridesmaid dresses and
consider things like necklines and colors. If you have all of your bridesmaids
in different dresses, choose very versatile
pieces. For example, if everyone has a different neckline, you may want to gift
a pair of earrings and a bracelet rather than a necklace.
