Gifting your bridal party can be a lot of fun, but which types of gifts are better for a destination beach wedding?
If you’re having a destination beach wedding, you know that many aspects of planning your big day are altered due to the nature of the wedding. For example, you have to take things like your catering, your dress, and your guest list choices into account depending on the location you choose. Having a destination beach wedding means dealing with distance and weather factors that you normally wouldn’t have to worry about with a traditional, local wedding.
So, when it comes time to choose your wedding favors and gifts for your bridal party, those same elements come into play. But that doesn’t mean you can’t come up with some fun ideas to say “thank you” to your bridesmaids and groomsmen! The following are some of the most popular bridal party gift options for a destination beach wedding:
Spa packages—Giving your bridal party spa packages of any kind is a great idea if you’re having a destination beach wedding. They’ll love taking advantage of the resort’s luxury spa or the local spa, and it will give them the chance to unwind after their travels.
Beach bundles—Stuff tote or beach bags with any must-have items for a lazy day in the sand. Cozy beach towels, sunscreen, sunglasses, and even a good book are all great gift items to make your bridal party feel at home.
Activity Gift Certificates—Let your bridal party soak up the local flavor by gifting them with gift certificates or reservations for a day of sailing, snorkeling, hiking, or horseback riding. Many islands also offer rainforest tours, city tours, or history and culture museum tours where your bridal party can get acquainted with the local culture.
Other great bridal party gift options include personalized travel tags, personalized coffee mugs and tea sets, and soap or travel kits that can be used during the stay on the island. Initially, it might seem that bridal party gift options are limiting for a destination beach wedding, but it actually opens you up to giving gifts you wouldn’t normally be able to share anywhere else!
