We wanted the rehearsal dinner to be a small thank you to our bridal party, so we chose to give each of them their gifts between dinner and dessert.
My brother (our minister) and his friend, Tanner, (who played guitar during our processional) were leaving on a month long mission trip to Slovenia two days after our wedding, so we gave each of them a funny card with some cash inside for their trip.

Our flower girl was very excited about her role in the wedding, so I decided to give her a few companions to practice with:

Each of the groomsmen received their tie to wear for the wedding, and a mini cooler that included a steak from the Amarillo Stockyard and a nice bottle of whiskey.

We gave BM J a “bonus” gift. BM J loves a nice whiskey, so we gave him a specially engraved glass to commemorate the occasion.

For my amazing bridesmaids, I chose a pair of flats (to wear during the reception) and a piece of jewelry for each of them.
MOH Dancer and Bridesmaid Fashionista received these Steve Madden flats:

And MOH/ Lil Sis Dolphin received a new pair of Toms.

Each bridesmaid was gifted a different piece of jewelry that represented their personality. For MOH Dancer, I chose a beautiful bracelet from Dillards.

MOH/Lil Sis Dolphin loved her pair of whale earrings:

For Bridemaid Fashionista’s gift, I took inspiration from her Pinterest board and bought this ring for her:

Her reaction was priceless:
Once gifts had been passed out, dessert was served!
With dessert finished, it was time to start our mini-rehearsal. Did you hand out gifts at your rehearsal or do it at another time? What did you give your bridal party?

The recaps began.
We received an awesome gift.
The girls got pampered.
We stuffed our faces.
