DIY card and gift

If you want to get creative and do something super thoughtful, then a DIY project is the way to go. Make personalized “Will you be my bridesmaid” cards and try out your poetry skills by writing a memorable, bespoke message for each and every single one of them. To add to this, buy some plain photo frames and decorate them yourself. Print out your favourite photo with them complete the gift with this. What can be more special than spending your time on doing something that will make your friends happy…Aww so sweet!

Afternoon tea

Spend the afternoon with your best girls whilst sipping on tea and savouring in delicious cream scones and of course, tasty cakes. Oh so English! Take your bridesmaids-to-be for a traditional afternoon tea where you can enjoy a girl’s only afternoon. Grab yourselves a glass of Prosecco and toast to wonderful moments to come.

Spa day

Indulge in some pampering and relaxation (with a celebratory glass of bubbles in hand of course), before the madness of wedding planning begins.
