DC Wedding Planner | Not Your Typical Holiday Gift Guide

Christmas may only be less than a week away, but there’s still time to squeeze in a few more naughty & nice people off of your wedding party list before you tie the knot. The holidays are a great time to take advantage of some local (and even not so local) super deals to help scratch off “wedding party gifts” from your wedding planning timeline. We’re breaking down gifts for everyone on your list from your bridesmaids, groomsmen, and even your coveted mother-in-law to-be to help you get a head start on this not so daunting task. Trust us, this gift guide is easier than you think. 


Custom Jewelry

Nothing says gift of the year award, like custom jewelry for you and all of your best friends. Meet with a local jeweler like one of our faves J’Adorn Designs to help you create custom bracelets or earrings that you all can wear on your wedding day and keep for a lifetime, thinking back on this momentous day.

Give a Little Blow

Blow dry bar that is. Either for your rehearsal dinner or even after the wedding festivities have died down themselves, your bridesmaids will appreciate the luxury of being treated to get their hair blown out to look their best. Our go-to stop Dry Bar is currently running a 50% off winter special on lots of their hair beauty must-haves!


Custom Cufflinks

Give your guys the gift of glam by presenting them with custom cufflinks with their initials engraved. Not only will they be super fly on your wedding day, but these will be one set they’ll be sure not to misplace. Browse Etsy’s countless index of cufflinks here for the perfect ones to gift.

Engraved Bottle of Their Favorite Liquor

The guys will probably be one of the easiest wedding party gifts to buy for on your list, so best to keep it simple. Simply purchasing their favorite bottle of liquor and having it engraved with their name on it will do wonders for your friendship. Just a little something special to let them know you appreciate them. Our friends over at Just Write Studios are your go-to when it comes to all of your engraving needs. 

Flower Girls & Ring Bearers

Don’t forget the littlest members of the party – flower girls & ring bearers. These minis need love too so go-to’s like their favorite toy or a fun coloring book and matching color pencils will always be fun. We say step it up a notch with a cute purse for her and an adorable bow tie for him. 

Parent In-Laws

Last but certainly not least are wedding party gifts for your moms and dads-to be. There should be extra care and attention for these special deliveries so we say leave it up to the pros at Marigold & Grey to blow their socks away. These are the groups of people that will appreciate most a well curated box and perfectly tied bow.
