It takes a special bunch of people to help a wedding come together, and sometimes you want to go that extra mile to find a unique and creative way to say thank you. Whether it’s your bridal party’s endless patience and sense of fun, your parents always lending you their ear, or your uncle stepping in at the last minute and saving the day, here are some ways to let them know how grateful you are.

Say it on tape

If you have an awesome group of gals you want to shout out to, get the camera rolling and tell them how you feel. You can make it funny, emotional, anecdotal, or however you want. Include a little bit about every one of the bridesmaids and give them a gift they will cherish forever.

Custom made jewelry

Customized jewelry isn’t just limited to the ladies – you can opt for personalized cufflinks too. You can go for a small inscription, just their name, or the date and time of your big day. This thank you gift is a little more on the pricey side, and if you don’t want to splash out too much, you should limit it to just a few special people.

After party

Organize a little get together with your nearest and dearest – sort of like bachelor and bachelorette parties after the fact! This doesn’t have to be a costly affair: do an at-home, DIY pamper session with your girlies with homemade gift baskets, while the groom can host a sports night with beer and baseball at home. Cheap and cheerful and super fun!

Thank you card photo

Your guests would love to have personal copies of some of your professional photography, so include a few snaps in the thank you card. These gifts are suitable for all of your guests, but you can add extra gifts for the extra special people.


Message in a bottle

This is one of our favorite ideas. For money saving ideas, this can easily be made on your own, and makes a super cute thank you gift. All you need is a small glass bottle with a message hanging from the cork. This can be typed, hand-written, personalized, embellished with a photo, and makes an adorable ornament for whoever receives it.

Personalized cups

Personalize cups, glasses, flutes, or tankards to make a beautiful and artsy thank you gift for your guest that they will not only keep but use! You will easily find a craft company who can service this for you, or you can get out your paints and stencils to create your own. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect – flaws add character!

Key ring and poem

Take a gift your guest will carry around and use indefinitely – a key ring. It’s small, handy, and can be customized with a small poem or sentiments from the two of you. Every time they pick up their keys, they will remember your big day.
