You've heard of bridesmaids gift bags? What about the Bride’s Friendship Bag? A Bride’s Friendship Bag is great spin-off on the way a bride can show appreciation to her wedding party members - maid of honor, bridesmaids and close friends - showing appreciation and thanks for the person participating in your special day.
Many of those who receive the gifts tend to keep them as a keepsake to remind them of your special day, something to look back on and think of the wonderful memories your day brought to you and your guests.
What Goes in the Friendship Bags?
You can put anything you want in your Bride’s Friendship Bag. It can be as extravagant or as small as you wish. Maybe you want to put cosmetics or something small like chocolates and a card. A bottle of red wine with your chocolates would also be good (red wine goes great with dark chocolates by the way). Or, maybe you'd like to put in a pound of coffee with some biscotti.
Whether it's a bridesmaid gift bag or a friendship bag for bridesmaids and other friends, there's nothing that says you have to give a gift to those in your wedding party. (Although, let's face it, many may be expecting at least something). But, if you do decide to give gifts, the bags are a unique way to deliver the traditional wedding favors.
