Saying “I Do”? Don’t Forget to Say “Thank You,” Too!

Every bride knows that when it comes to wedding planning, no one does it alone. In preparation for the big day, your bridal party has stuck by you through thick and thin, from helping out with the rehearsal dinner details to making late-night ice cream runs when you’re feeling stressed out.

After the “I do”s have been said, a few “thank you”s are in order for all the hard work your bridal party has put in. It can be a daunting task to find a way to express your gratitude. Weddings can stir up emotions so deep that it’s hard to express them. If you’re left at a loss for words, Purple Wishing Gate can find them for you. Our “On My Special Day!” blessing gift for sale can be personalized for each member of your bridal party, and features original poetry and artwork by Barbara D. MacAdam.

It can be a daunting task to find a way to express your gratitude, but Purple Wishing Gate has put together a few suggestions for ways to say thank you on the wedding day and afterwards.

Personalized blessing: This beautiful, framed blessing will bring a level of love and appreciation to your “thank you,” not always felt with standard bridal party gifts alone, so Purple Wishing Gate has put together a few suggestions for ways to combine your Bridal Party’s “thank you” Blessing with other ideas, creating gifts they’ll cherish forever!

Customized jewelry: Why should your bridesmaids stress about matching their jewelry to their gowns and shoes? Make it easy with a gift of customized necklaces that they can wear on the wedding day. The design is up to your budget imagination - you can select simple monogrammed initials (there are plenty of Etsy retailers who offer them) or work with a local jewelry designer to craft a unique pendant.

Wine: Few bridesmaids would turn down a glass of wine to unwind after all that wedding stress. Treat them to a relaxing night in with a bottle of wine from a local vineyard, many of which also offer custom labeling. Make it extra-luxurious by pairing wine with some bubbly bath bombs. (Have a teetotaler on your bridal team? A bottle of artisan soda or sparkling cider will do!)

Girls’ day out: Your girls treated you to a night to a remember during your bachelorette party. Return the favor and show your appreciation by treating them back! After the whirlwind of wedding planning, plan a relaxing weekend day trip for the ladies, like a day spa session or a picnic in the park.

Autumn Forest and Transformation of Life
The Spiritual Significance of Fall: A Season of Transition and Renewal

by Bill MacAdam December 10, 2023 3 min read

Fall symbolizes the divine concept of being reborn. This principle lies at the heart of Christianity, as we find in the crucifixion and triumphant resurrection of Christ. In our own lives, trials and tribulations can lead to profound spiritual growth. The barren trees of autumn remind us that periods of emptiness and stillness are preparation for abundant new life, just as Jesus spent three days in the tomb before His glorious resurrection.
