How to Find the Perfect Bridesmaid Makeup Bags to Surprise Your Girls

As your wedding day is approaching, it’s natural to have mixed feelings of excitement and apprehension. You are thrilled to finally wed your special someone, but you also know there is so much to still get accomplished before that day arrives.

One such task you need to get done before the actual wedding day is to properly and efficiently thank your bridesmaids. They have dedicated their time, patience, and funds to make your wedding day and its applicable celebrations perfect-- just for you.

Waiting until after your wedding to properly thank them will be too long and could even be construed as being rude. This is because they may feel that they have sacrificed so much, yet they were an afterthought. You certainly do not want your bridesmaids to ever think that about you!

When you are shopping for the best gifts for them, you should look into adding bridesmaid makeup bags into the mix. These shouldn’t be the only gift you give them, but they could be an excellent party favor or an addition to their big “thank you” gift. 

These bags are practical yet thoughtful gifts, as these can be utilized anytime the bridesmaid chooses, like during the bridal shower, bachelorette party, the wedding, or any other instance! They also can be used in more ways than just holding makeup!

But, there are specific factors that you need to consider before purchasing bridesmaid makeup bags. Let’s look at the most common points you should investigate before buying them.


There are several ways you could go about the color choice on these bags. You could choose something that is particularly attractive to each individual bridesmaid’s preference. Or, you could purchase a unified color that corresponds with your wedding’s color scheme.

You could also choose a color that specifically matches the bridesmaids’ dresses, so they can be reminded of that beautiful day every time they use the personally selected bag.


One of the most important features to consider when selecting any bag, regardless of the occasion or type, is the material. You want something that is sturdy and doesn’t easily scuff. You also want something that won’t rip and is weather repellant. It should also be opaque because most people don’t like it when their bag contents can be visible to others.

For cosmetic bags specifically, you should also ensure they are made of a material that won’t get stained by makeup or anything else. Fortunately, most of our makeup bags are made of the most ideal material for this type of bag: cotton canvas.

Cotton canvas is great because it’s strong, dependable, flexible, and water-resistant. It is easily one of the best materials for makeup bags! 


This may seem like an obvious point, but it still warrants a mention. Surprisingly, not all makeup bags have zippers! This is less than ideal because that makes the bag not as easy to open and close. Plus, without zippers, it is substantially easier to spill the contents of the bag!

Therefore, when purchasing any bridesmaid makeup bags, you need to be sure there is a zipper present on each one.

Cute Phrase

Bridesmaid makeup bags would just be called “makeup bags” if they didn’t have a cute phrase on them! When purchasing these bags, you should make sure that they have an adorable and quirky phrase on them to get a smile from your ladies.

There are plenty of options to choose from, but ours come in an admirable variety:

  • Bride Tribe
  • Bride’s Babes
  • I Do Crew
  • Bridesmaid

All of the above are bound to place a wide smile on your girls’ faces-- and even get a little chuckle out of them! (Plus, if you wanted one for yourself, we have ones that are white and have “bride” on them!)


Ultimately, as much as you want to provide your girls with the fanciest makeup bags available, you should still very much consider the price at the end of the day. After all, you still need to finance a wedding!

These bags should not break your budget. Luckily, we have taken your budget into account. Our makeup bags for bridesmaids only cost $5.95 or $6.95! How could those prices get any better?


You should always consider where you are buying these bags from. They need to have excellent reviews and ratings from previous and authentic customers. They also need to be experienced and have plenty of other options available for you to peruse (not to worry: we check all of those boxes, too).
