Bridesmaid Gifts

Recommended Posts

I'm planning to have an in-house massage for the 3 girls and I at our villa, but I'm wondering if I should have it the morning of the wedding?  We are only arriving one day prior to the ceremony, and I feel like the day of arrival is too soon to schedule them.  Will we be too oily if we have the massage the morning of the ceremony?  Or should I schedule it later in the week and just tell them about it on the day they arrive?

 

I love love love the Kate Spade bangle someone posted, so I'm getting that for my MOH.  I also love the beach chair covers with the pillows and pockets, so I'll get the girls each a tote with one of those in it, some flip flops, and each couple will get a bottle of our favorite tequila.

 

I think I'm going to have my fiance take all of the boys for lunch and beers while we get our massages.  I hope that isn't a mistake cheesy.gif .

I went all out, we bought our bridal parties outfits, we gave them each $250 off the trip, Then I let the girls get their own shoes and earrings, and I am going to give them bracelets to wear for the wedding. I I probably went way overboard but I also wanted to spoil them. Anyway, It's up to you, just remember being a bridesmaid is expensive and add travel on top of it, so that's why I did so much.

I love the Tiffany Pearl Bracelet! I agree with DWBride2Be, it all depends on what you want to spend. My friends/bridesmaids have been there for me in more ways than I can count so I feel the need to shower them with gifts!

We are going WAY overboard too, especially for the girls. We bought the outfits (not that they were very expensive), and I have been adding stuff to beach bags for them for over a year now... They can choose their own jewelry and shoes for the day, though I am giving them stuff too. And I just ordered a pearl necklace and set of earrings for my MOH, who is my sister. I think I am pretty much done!

Where are you ladies finding these beach chair covers? They are so nice! I think my girls and our moms would really like them.

Hey Ladies,

I have a collection of OKAB shoes.  They are amazing shoes and they even have a bridal collection.  These would make for great gifts for you bridesmaids, and even the groomsmen (My FI loves is OKAB's).http://www.oka-b.com/

Wow I'm glad I found this thread, it's giving me good ideas. So far, I'm planning to get my bridesmaids:

 

purple floral silk robes

jewelry for the wedding

personalized leather passport cover and luggage tags

and a beach bag

 

I am also thinking about massages but it just depends on my budget.

 

I don't want to get them anything they will just disregard so I'm trying to plan carefully!!

Great ideas!

 

I got my girls

 

- paid for small portion of their dress

- anklet

- necklace and earrings for ceremony

- sandals for ceremony

- makeup bag

- beach bag

-  little package of nail/foot files, compact, body butter, body spray, etc.

- colorful sunglasses for wedding pics

 

They will get the same OOT stuff as everyone else.

 

I wanted to get them everything they needed for the wedding day itself so they didn't have to spend anymore of their own money. Sometimes I feel like I didn't do enough but fiance told me to quit spending as it was adding up!

 

 

Fiance got his groomsmen leather shaving kits, travel package for inside (shaving cream, etc.) and a dog tag necklace that is personalized for them.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
