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.

    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
    • @JessicaCV - How was your wedding experience? We're getting married there in November - Would love to pick your brain about your experience and the planning process! - Kian
    • They forgot the wedding cake topper   Okay, so no big deal - just a once in a lifetime moment. The upsetting part is the wedding coordinator, Dionne, did not seem at all concerned about the mistake. The only reason we got an apology was because we happened to run into her the night before we left. Our wedding was on Saturday we left Wednesday morning. We were told we could escalate our concern to Riu corporate, the wedding coordinator doesn’t have a supervisor on site. Riu corporate said they did their best and apologized. Brides, go to Jamaica, get married, but do yourself a favor and do not go to a Riu resort, especially not Riu Negril. I am certain there are other resorts that would have been in touch immediately and tried to make up for their mistake. Not Riu.
