Trust me, your crew on your wedding day will be your literal lifesavers. They'll be the ones sneaking you some of the vodka from the bar while you’re tied up in rituals. They’ll also be there to help you wear that 50 kilos lehenga of your dreams and be the ones making sure everyone has a great night.
So, to celebrate this milestone in life and the bond you all share, thanking your veeres with thoughtful wedding return gifts is a must. After all, they are the ones who’ve been there from the Chandini Chowk shopping escapades to the bachelorette planning. We’ve got a list wedding return gifts you can give to thank them for all the help they’ve been through the madness of your shaadi.
