ASK BEVERLY: Do I Really Need To Buy The Bridal Party A Gift?

Normally your bridal party receives a small gift as a memento of your wedding, as well as a token of your appreciation for all their help and support.  These do not have to be expensive gifts, but they should be items that will have lasting or special meaning. Traditionally, each bridesmaid and usher get an identical gift, but your honor attendants usually receive something more distinctive.  Or you can break with tradition and give each person a unique gift chosen just for him or her.  Consider their hobbies and lifestyles. Below are suggestions for the bridesmaids and groomsmen.
