Thank you very much

Thank you very much

Q. I have five bridesmaids and want to thank them all for their support without breaking the bank. What can you suggest?

A. Karina O'Donnell says: There are many ways to thank your bridesmaids without stretching your budget. You could write a small card to express how important they are to you, thanking them for their love and support leading up to your big day. Words say and mean so much and cost just the effort you put into writing them.

Flowers, often presented at the reception are lovely and colourful, but sadly don't last very long. Giving your best gals a gift of jewellery on the other hand, which they can wear on the day, doesn't have to be expensive. Whether you choose a set or one beautiful piece, it will be worn with love for many months and years afterwards, evoking happy memories of your wedding day.

These silver-plated and freshwater pearl bracelets (pictured) are perfect for bridesmaids, flowergirls and the maid-of-honour. They come attached to a card with a nice sentiment and there's room on the back for you to write a personal message too. Gift boxed and presented in a ribboned bag, at £14.99 they won't break the bank and will be a lasting and meaningful thank you gift.
