So it's time to pop the question - to your bridesmaids that is, and to officially make them part of your big day. Your bridesmaids are most likely also some of your best friends or even your sister and they have such a big role in your big day from organising your hen party to helping you choose the perfect dress. You can let them know how special they are with a sparkly gift when you pop the 'will you be my bridesmaid' question and get the celebrations started. A piece of jewellery makes a great bridesmaids' gift as it can also be worn by your wedding party on your big day.
We've put together a 'bridemaids gifts' edit with lots of ideas for gifting your ladies and we've chosen a couple of our absolute favourites here to help inspire you.
Make it Precious with Solid Gold Jewellery
Maybe you have just one bridesmaid for your big day - your best friend or sister and you want to give them a precious gift they will cherish for years to come. You could choose a necklace from our 9kt solid gold initial necklace collection which will make her jaw drop ! Our solid gold necklaces are made in house in the Lulu + Belle workshop meaning that we don't have long lead times. We have also chosen a luxurious velvet lined round gift box for our fine jewellery which will make it perfectly gift-worthy for your bridesmaid and bestie.

Shower them with Freshwater Pearls
Pearls are often chosen as wedding jewellery as the soft ivory hues of pearls work perfectly as a bridal or bridemaid's accessory ! We hand-pick our freshwater pearls and make a delicate collection of contemporary pearl jewellery. You can create a stunning pearl jewellery set with your choice of pearl earrings and delicate pearl bracelet or pearl pendant for jewellery that your bridesmaids will wear on your wedding day and long after.
Pictured here are our leafy birthstone earrings made with beautiful freshwater pearls, together with our two of us freshwater pearl bracelet.
Gift them each a Necklace with their Initial
If you have a larger girl squad for your big day and you want to gift them each a special gift, then a thoughtful initial necklace could be a perfect choice. We make dainty to medium sized initial necklaces and offer these initial chains in a beautiful, romantic 'sweet script' font as well as our hugely popular 'pure + simple' font.

Choose a set of oval, rectangular or classic round disc initial necklaces that your bridesmaids will love wearing on your wedding day and will wear as a reminder of your friendship long after.

Our initial necklaces come beautifully packaged in our rose gold branded, white Lulu + Belle gift boxes so you have nothing more to do than pop open a bottle of bubbly when you present their gift.
Say it With Flowers - That Will Last
Beautiful blooms are a part of every wedding day and so much thought goes into choosing the perfect bridal and bridesmaids flowers for your wedding day. Flowers are also gifted as a symbol of love and friendship so we've created our own collection of floral jewellery that would be perfect as a bridesmaid gift. We make a beautiful rose pendant which can be accompanied by an very dainty initial disc in gold or silver which would perfect styled with a bridesmaid's dress or gift your bridesmaids our 'wildbunch' necklace which is a little posy of wildflowers and represents the unique bond between friends.
