Bridesmaid and Groomsmen gift ideas – Minnesota Wedding Photographer

What’s a wedding without your best girls and guys? Well, it’s still a wedding but potentially with fewer belly laughs. Your bridesmaids and groomsmen love you with their whole heart and are excited to stand and support you on your most important day to date.

Have you thought of a way you can say thank you to them?

If not, we’ve got some ideas.

I, Lauren, love giving (and receiving *winkwink*) gifts – something all of our LBP couples know quite well. And when gifts are thoughtful and practical…well…that’s a mighty fine gift right there!

If those are two qualities you look for in your gift giving, you might want to check out Bridesmaid Gifts Boutique and Groovy Groomsmen Gifts – sister boutiques that sell unique gifts specifically geared towards your girls and guys.

Two of my personal faves are the Personalized Insulated Tumbler and the Case in Point tech case.

One of the most important things to remember on your wedding day is to drink water. That also applies to your bridesmaids.

With these insulated tumblers, your girls will not only stay hydrated but they’ll also go home with a seriously cute, personalized tumbler that will remind them about the amazing time they had at your wedding each and every time it’s used.

If your girls are prone to knocking their drinks over, you could instead consider gifting them the Engraved Anchor Tumbler.

I got to try one of the insulated tumblers out and oh boy, let me tell ya! They’re pretty darn great!!

It kept my La Croix cool and my coffee hot for several hours. It also looks hella sleek. An extra bonus? Because you can personalize these tumblers, your girls won’t get them mixed up!

For the dudes, practicality reins supreme when it comes to gifts. That’s why I love the idea of giving them the Case in Point personalized tech case.

But don’t take my word for it. I got one of these cases for Matt and he loves it!

He says he likes that his iPhone charger, headphones, and Kindle fit inside the case and that there’s still room for a few other small travel items. He also likes that it keeps all of those items in one convenient place so they can’t get lost inside his suitcase. I’d call that a win!

I like it because it looks high-end (gotta love that monogram action) but doesn’t break the bank.

In fact, neither of those two gift ideas do. Both the Personalized Insulated Tumbler and the Case in Point tech case are under $40! Can I get a “heck yeah?!”

Whatever gift you decide to give your wedding party, make sure it shows how much you appreciate them. Being a bridesmaid and groomsmen is an act of love and it never hurts to remind your peeps that you love them too. 😉

How do we even start to say thank you for all the work and effort you put into our wedding day?

- Josie and Scott

Lauren played such a meaningful role in our wedding, capturing the day in photos that we'll look back on for the rest of our lives. She kept Scott and me calm and sane - Lauren is a miracle worker! She put in 100% effort and gave us her very best, and that means so much to me. Seeing our photographs makes me so excited and so happy that Lauren was with us on this journey.

Lauren made the process so easy and made us feel so comfortable!

- Amy and Luke

We just wanted to say thank you again so much for your amazing work. You were seriously incredible to work with and we loved the locations you suggested for both our engagement shoot and the spots in Stillwater. We were very worried about getting professional photos done since we had never done it before, but you made the process so easy and made us feel so comfortable. Thank you!

Working with Lauren was easy breezy and FUN! She gave us our most treasured photos ever!


There was a chunk of time in our wedding planning when we thought we'd go without a professional photographer to save on cost (terrible idea!) but once we met with Lauren, we knew we'd be in good hands. She checked in often and asked questions that got us thinking about other parts of the wedding that we probably would've missed. Lauren captured exactly who we are as a couple!

Lauren's enthusiasm and passion make the photo-taking process so fun – she made me feel like a star!

- Alisa AND Adam

Lauren and her team are so much fun to work with! She made us feel so comfortable on the day of our wedding, providing both silly and helpful cues to help us relax and be ourselves in our photos. Lauren’s background in dance is super helpful in recognizing simple posture changes that make a big difference, too. Oh, and the photos we got are just stunning!

Lauren was pivotal in making our wedding day perfect!

- Emma AND Erik

My husband and I looked FOR MONTHS to find the perfect photographer and after meeting Lauren we knew was the best fit for us. She made our day so much fun and easy. She found little opportunities to make the perfect photo all with a  calm ease that comes from someone who has an artistic eye along with experience in understanding the flow of a wedding.

Not only is Lauren an amazing human being, but she is an awesome photographer!

- Haley AND Erick

I've been in several weddings and have worked with a multitude of photographers and I never felt as confident as I did with Lauren. I love how professional she is. She helped with the timeline way in advance and we stuck to that timeline the day of. She was also able to professionally and firmly keep unruly family members settled and focused and navigated family drama beautifully!
