You will obviously know your bridesmaids very well, so giving them a keepsake gift they will always remember your wedding day with should be fairly easy, but there are rules to follow:
Mistakes with Bridesmaid Gift Giving
Do not allow the bridesmaid gifts to "upstage" the bride and groom in any way. This would include very extravagant or expensive gifts that are mainly just to show off. Keep gifts within reason to retain the focus on the wedding's bride and groom. Make certain it is really special for the individual bridesmaid. Bridesmaids gifts need not be the same for each one. Have the gift connect to the wedding day itself, either through the setting, the attire or the season.
The process of finding and buying the bridesmaids their gift or even better, making it yourself is second only to the memories of the moment you give them their gift.
When to give the bridesmaids their gifts? The best time is towards the end of the wedding reception, after the cutting of the cake. Make this time special for them by bringing them up in front of everyone and thanking them for being your bridesmaids. You may want to have the flower girl and/or ring bearer bring the gifts to the bridesmaids. This will make the moment even more memorable.
