Bridesmaid Gifts

Recommended Posts

wow ladies, great ideas, keep them coming!

 

I think I am like some of you; you ask these women to be apart of your wedding, though most of the time, the BM pays for their own dress, plane ticket, hotel stay, gifts and do BM duties! It makes brides feel as though we have to overload them with gifts.

 

If I didn't have six girls, I love have loved to spend more on them. Particularly, Tiffany's has their sterling silver stud earrings for $90. If I didn't have six girls, that would definitely be a BM gift!

My favorite BM gift I've ever received was a photo album the bride made of funny pictures of us together with sayings on the side clipped from magazines. We had so much fun looking at each others photoalbums at the rehersal dinner.

My bridesmaids will be getting everything in the OOT bags plus:

I paid for their dresses, I'm getting or making barefoot sandals, jewelry for the ceremony, a terry cloth swimsuit cover-up with thier monogram or nickname embroidered, and then I'm either going to cover their costs for Dunns River excursion or get mani/pedi before we leave home. I offered to get thier make-up done at the hotel salon but they all want to do thier own.

That fashion shoot sounds like so much fun. What a great gift!

I found really cute little coach wristlets at an outlet for $39. Thought it would be functional for going out to the bars instead of lugging a whole purse, and come on - who doesn't love coach!

Hey gals - I just ordered these robes from Target.com - they are on sale for $13.99 - I only have 3 BM's so it wasn't pricey at all! But I figured they will get tons of use out of them at the Resort! By the pool, lounging around the hotel room, I even got one for myself!!

Each BM is getting an embroidered beach bag, a pashmina, Philosophy bath/shower gel, City Lips Lip Plumper lipstick/lip gloss, flip flops, earrings for the ceremony, a shower poof and a few other little things in the bags, along with a picture frame and card.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
