Throughout the weekend, whenever I could snag someone, I would hand them their Thank You gift for being a part of our wedding.
Mr. HW kept it simple for the guys and got each one a nice pocket knife with their initials engraved in it.
The flower girls got little dolls that had the exact same dress as the girls wore in the wedding.
Here is Aunt Pam showing off the cute dolls.
Shopping for the junior bridesmaids was probably the most difficult part. They are both not very “girly” so-to-speak. For Callie, I picked out a cute Roxy sweatshirt for when the weather cooled off (it was a scorching 97 degrees the day of the wedding!)

For my other awesome Jr. Bridesmaid, I ordered a hardback book about the history of manga.

The bridesmaids themselves all wound up with embroidered matching robes. I’m so glad I decided to go with these as gifts because they got a TON of use on the wedding day, and hopefully will get lots more use at their homes.
I also picked out small individualized gifts for each of them as well. A yoga shawl for my yogi bridesmaid, a pressed flower jewelry box for my dainty bridesmaid, sassy ear muffs for my runner bridesmaid, and a teapot for my tea loving maid of honor.
My MIL received a loving framed poem and my mom got a book full of mushy mommy stories.
I also picked up two small gifts for my aunt (bath product) and grandmother (picture album) who provided a lot of support to me during wedding planning.
It was really fun to spend time picking out something special for each of them.
