Choosing customized wedding favors for bridesmaids is an important task for the bride. After all, bridesmaids play a significant role in the wedding ceremony, are girls who’ve stood by you through life and have helped you feel and look your best on this most special day. Thanking the bridesmaids by choosing personalized, customized wedding favors is a small way of showing that you truly cherish them. Here are some ideas for customizing wedding gifts for bridesmaids.
Personalized Jewelry and Clothes
Every girl loves jewelry. Personalizing it add a special touch. Select necklaces with lockets that can be engraved with the bridesmaid’s initial or add a special thank-you message to the back of the locket. A delicate silver or rhodium—finished necklace will not cost much but personalizing it will surely increase its emotional value for the bridesmaid.
Clothes are another favorite with girls. Gifting bridesmaids tees or sweatshirts with their initial embroidered or painted on it is a simple yet meaningful wedding favor. Hand painting tees is easy and all you need is fabric paint and a stencil.
Monogrammed Totes and Pouches
Bags, totes and pouches are easy-to-get and easier to customize. Choose colors that match the wedding colors or opt for safe neutral or pastel colors, then have them monogrammed. You can even fill the bag with a small stash of each bridesmaid’s favorite cosmetics and a small bottle of her signature perfume. You can even choose a monogrammed travel case for every bridesmaid and stock it with travel-size toiletries and cosmetics.
Customized Photo Frames and Memory Boxes
Photo frames make great wedding favors. Customize them by engraving the date of the wedding, the bridesmaid’s name or just a simple, “thank-you.” Fill the frame with a photo of the two of you to create a truly personal wedding gift. Choose frames made of natural materials, such as wood or classic pewter. Organic cotton photo frames are also a good idea and can be easily customized with fabric paint.
Memory boxes are ideal for wedding favors, since a wedding is the perfect time to create memories. Engraving personal messages on the back of the box will express your emotions and create a special, personalized memory box for your bridesmaids.
Personalized Mugs and Bottles
The easiest wedding favors to customize are mugs and bottles. These can be monogrammed or even, have the full name on them. Hand painting the initials with acrylic paint will add a special touch to these must-haves for every bridesmaid.
Handmade Bridesmaid Favors

- Hand embroidered handkerchiefs or hankies in pastel colors.
