Welcome to Walworth Castle Hotel. We are open for overnight stays, dining, celebrations and weddings.

The Best Gifts For Your Groomsmen and Bridal Party

You’ve booked your big day, the dress is sorted, the suits have been picked up, and the rings are with the best man. You’ve booked one of the most perfect wedding venues in the North East, Walworth Castle and you are expecting a whole host of family and friends. Everything seems sorted, but it’s a wedding, there is always something you’ve forgotten or need to sort out last minute.

One of those things, we find, is usually a gift for your bridesmaids, groomsmen and best man. These guys will support you through your relationship and are instrumental in your big day going off without a hitch. They will do this regardless, they are your friends, your nearest and dearest, but sometimes it is nice to get them something to show your appreciation and thank them for your support.

In most cases, you will have the perfect ideas for a little thank you gift for your wedding party. But for those of you who are a little stuck for ideas, we have come up with a little list of the best gifts for your groomsmen and bridal party.


Something they can wear

There are some fantastic options available with regard to clothing and accessories you can purchase for your groomsmen. How about some personalised socks with “best man” or “usher” stitched in? Something trendy is personalised cufflinks, the guys can wear them on the day itself and keep them as a souvenir after.

Something they can drink

For the groomsmen who enjoy a drink or two, there are plenty of personalised beer and shot glasses available alongside personal crates of world beers.  A classic, timeless gift for a best man and something we like, is a good old hip flask, which again can be personalised with an inscription.

Something they can do

For those of you who have a bigger wedding budget, why not stretch the boat out and purchase an activity day for your groomsmen? Although after a big stag weekend you might want to pause this one until a few weeks after the wedding!

Bridal Party

Jewellery Gifts

Nothing says thank you like a beautiful piece of jewellery. You can find the perfect necklace or set of earrings that match your bridesmaids’ style, and it can be something the wear and cherish for years to come.


An easy purchase, especially if you know which flowers to buy. Your bridesmaids might have a specific flower that they love above all else and this is the perfect opportunity to say that you with a bouquet of flower that they will love.

Personal gifts

Why don’t you look for something that money can’t buy? If there a photo or a souvenir from a special place that you can share? Sometimes it is the thought that counts!

Something that smells nice

Who doesn’t like to smell nice or like something that gives off a pleasant aroma? Perfume is always easy to buy for, especially if there is a specific scent your bridesmaids wear. If a perfume is too expensive, why not look for a beautiful scented candle instead?

There are plenty of gift ideas out there for both groomsmen and bridesmaids. Still, we advise you to look for something special, that will mean something to the recipient, which they will keep and cherish forever.

Don’t forget if you are still looking for a wedding venue in the North East you can book your wedding at Walworth Castle Hotel Darlington. We also have two wedding events in January, giving you the perfect opportunity to see what Walworth Castle has to offer you as a wedding venue.
