Fall weddings are here, so when we spotted these amazing bridesmaid blankets and Turkish towels on Etsy and we couldn’t wait to share them with you! Blankets make great gifts for your bridesmaids any time of the year — but right now, I especially love them. When did it get so cold?!
In this post, we’ll tell you about coy blankets for bridesmaids, Turkish towels, and other cozy blankets & throws shops you’ll want to bookmark for now — and holiday gifts for later. Plus, we’ll give you an opportunity to win one of these personalized blankets! Let’s get started!
Are Bridesmaid Blankets a Good Gift?
Yes. Have you ever received a blanket as a gift? It is a nice, warm, sentimental gift your bridesmaids will use forever. A warm blanket isn’t just for the cold months, either: you can always use an extra throw to take camping, to concerts, on a road trip, to snuggle on the porch, to sit in your favorite chair and read a good book, etc. You can honestly never have too many blankets. This is a fact.
In addition to its functionality, blankets for bridesmaids are a popular gift idea because they can be personalized for added sentimentality. You can have her name personalized on it, or get her monogram, etc.
As far as a universal gift, blankets are one of the best: sometimes bridesmaids don’t like jewelry, or candles, or aren’t big fans of clothing pieces… but blanket? I don’t know a single person who doesn’t love a soft blanket as a gift.
And since you can customize the color, it can match her favorite shade or her decor. Win-win.
Let’s talk about five different kinds of blankets for bridesmaids. First, Turkish towels, followed by fleece blankets and sherpa bridesmaid blankets. Lastly, we’ll talk about bridesmaid blanket scarves and those highly sought-after chunky throws made of soft knit. Grab a giant cup of coffee — um, make mine a doubkle, my first didn’t even work yet, ha! — and enjoy!
1. Turkish Towel
Are you familiar with Turkish towels? They’re made of cotton, they are highly-absorbent, and they work well as beach towels or as cozy blankets and stylish wraps at weddings.
These towels are a great choice for weddings as bridesmaid blankets, for your beach bachelorette party, or as favors for guests to wrap up in and get cozy during fall and winter weddings. They are made of premium cotton with extra-long fibers so they’re extremely lightweight and thin, yet absorbent.
They travel well and are easy-to-pack in your luggage or duffel bag, so they even work perfectly for destination weddings.
Let’s take a these top-selling Turkish towels which make awesome bridesmaid blankets.
These multi-use wraps, blankets, and towels are available in an array of fun, bright colors. I love the hot pink (pink is always my favorite!), as well as the grey chevron style that complements any wedding decor.
There’s even “something blue” for the bride. :)
You can roll up these blankets in a beautiful ribbon and place inside your bridesmaid tote bags to give as gifts. Your bridesmaids will love them!
In addition, you can roll these Turkish towels and place in a basket for guests to take in case they get chilly at your ceremony or reception. They make beautiful favors.
They have recently released a new pattern of towels your bridesmaids will love for fall featuring darker shades of red, green, and orange, great for fall or winter weddings.
I love these colors for the season!

2. Fleece Blanket
This blanket is known as a stadium throw and is made of air jet yarn (sounds soft, yes?) I love the mitered V corners and the monogramming, making these great blankets for bridesmaids gifts. This style is available by SouthernMySass and can be made in a variety of colors with her name or monogramming. Here are some examples.
You can see more about these blankets here.
And this is a slightly different style with a velvety soft material! See it here. I NEED that buffalo plaid!
3. Sherpa Blankets
These super soft sherpa blankets look like the ultimate in cozy comfort! Here is one example. Also by SouthernMySass.
4. Bridesmaid Blanket Scarf
Get these plaid blanket scarves monogrammed, if you’d like! These are cute scarves that can double as blankets in a snap. By BlueSuedeStitches.
5. Chunky Knit Blanket
These giant chunky blankets are made of a super-soft knit and are perfect for snuggling up with a good book! I want one in every color, tbh. By GoshiGoods.
