The bond between a woman and her dearest friends is something special, beautiful, and worthy of thanks. After all, your girls have been by your side through thick and thin. Bridesmaids are usually the unsung heroines of any wedding day. Who else will listen to endless wedding talk, plan an amazing bachelorette party and give a great toast on your behalf? One way to honor their friendship and dedication is to present each with a thoughtful gift. If you’re planning a destination wedding in Colorado, then why not pay tribute to the location in your choice? With this in mind, I’ve put together my top selection of mountain wedding bridesmaid gift ideas!
Floral robes. Robes are a great bridesmaid gift because they’re practical on the wedding day and beyond. They also photograph perfectly, making them ideal for pre-wedding prep. And what better way to remind your friends of wildflower-covered mountain passes than with a gorgeous floral print?
Pamper products. Mountain terrain can be tough on the body and skin – and so can weddings! Reward your bridesmaids with products for a post-wedding pamper sesh at home. To make it even more special, include a selection of Colorado-made beauty products, such as those from Fig + Yarrow.
Nature-inspired jewelry. Always a lovely idea for bridesmaid gifts, a piece of jewelry can be worn on the wedding day or at one of the wedding weekend events. It also makes a wonderful memento! For a Colorado destination wedding, choose a design inspired by nature or even the mountains themselves.
Coffee. Colorado may be best known for its craft beer right now, but there’s also a thriving coffee scene. If your bridesmaids are java lovers, then sign them up for a Corvus Coffee subscription, where they’ll have fresh artisan roasted coffee shipped from Denver, Colorado, right to their door.
Cozy slippers. Evenings can get chilly in the mountains, even in summer! Help your bridesmaids keep their toes nice and warm with a pair of plush slippers.
Bridesmaid cover-up. If you’re having a winter wedding (especially if you plan pictures in the snow), you’ll want to make sure that your bridesmaids have warm wraps or cover-ups to wear. These also double up as a lovely gift!
Candle-making experience. A fun shared experience makes a great bridesmaid gift! Make it part of your Colorado destination wedding weekend and schedule an afternoon with the girls at Mountain Lux Candles in Golden. You can craft your own candles from their range of 80 scents while sipping on a glass of wine. Otherwise, gift your bridesmaids a Colorado-inspired candle, like this one from Homesick, which features notes like spruce needles, cinnamon, cedarwood and snow.
Warm blanket. A cozy throw blanket makes a lovely gift for any bridesmaid – perfect for weekend Netflix binge marathons! For a special touch, you could get each blanket monogrammed or tagged with a custom message.
