Thank you gifts to BP: When do you give them?

My bridal shower is next weekend. I'm so confused about the Bridal Party gifts. Do I give them their gifts then, at the rehearsal, the morning of the wedding? I think I'm stressin' because I don't have all the items for their gifts just yet.

Is it customary to give at least little 'thank you' for the shower? I'm so lost. Please help.

I'm giving them their gifts at the rehearsal dinner, along with everyone else's. For sure at least a thank you would be nice for now, or maybe a little something that goes with the theme would be cute?

For my bridal shower I'm just giving everyone a little favor and thank yous...

- HMM :)

I think the previous posters are right, it's customary to give BP gifts at the rehearsal dinner.

Our rehearsal dinner was pretty chaotic and DH had forgotten to bring his GM gifts, so he gave them out on the wedding day. DH gave his GM gifts as they were all getting ready for the wedding since the gifts were custom dress shirts, ties and cufflinks. I gave my BM gifts later that evening after the rehearsal dinner as we all stayed in the hotel and had a slumber party.

I would gage the timing based on the gifts you're giving and your wedding party.

Good luck!

oooh thanks for the info. hadn't really thought about WHEN i'd give mine away, but now i know!

ms sunomono said if you pay for the BM dresses, you don't have to give a gift to the BMs? not sure how accurate that is... just wondering. does anyone know the etiquette to this?
