Many couples are enjoying the idea of having a wedding in paradise. In fact, destination weddings have grown more popular in the past ten years. If you are reading this article, then you are probably one of many brides or grooms that have decided that a destination wedding is in your favor. While hosting a destination wedding takes careful planning, many couples believe that it is much easier than hosting a large local wedding-you are probably one of them. Unfortunately, the costs of being in the wedding can be costly for members of your bridal party. If having a bridesmaid and best man present at your destination wedding is important to you then you may have to make their accommodations easier to manage. The last thing that you need is for your best friends to bail out on you during the most important event in your life’s history. Below are some bridesmaid gifts suggestions that may help to defray the cost of being in your wedding.

Hotel Accommodations

In order to help minimize the cost of your bridesmaids involvement in your destination wedding, you may consider paying for hotel accommodations as bridesmaid gifts. They are sure to enjoy the thoughtfulness behind your gift as well as appreciate the fact that you made it possible for them to stand up in your wedding.


Paying for a plane ticket is one of the most costly portions of a destination wedding-especially if the ticket is not purchased far in advance. Helping with the costs of your bridesmaid’s airfare is a bridesmaids gift that is useful and will be much appreciated.


There are two ways that you can make accommodations easier for your bridesmaid as it relates to bridal attire. You may choose to pay for your bridesmaid’s wedding attire from head to toe or you might allow her to wear something that she already has in her closet. Both alternatives will cut costs for her participation in your wedding day. If your bridesmaids choose to wear something that they already have then you may want to give them a set of bridal jewelry for their bridesmaid gifts.

Having a destination wedding can be an awesome experience for the bride, groom, and the wedding party as long as it is planned carefully. Helping your bridal party with some of the costs of attending your wedding is a great way to show your appreciation for their love and support.
