    Hey girls
    How much do you plan on spending for your BM thank you gifts. I have 4 BM, so I was thinking around $100 each.
    I have gotten then a cute starfish necklace, paying for their hair, I want to get them a cute pair of flip flops and I might buy their shoes.
    Do you think this is enough or is it cheap?
    Thanks for your help

      That's about what I spent. If you want to get another small thing that makes the gift seem bigger what about a cute beachy keychain: Ribbon Watches, Ribbon Jewelry, Ribbon Belts, Ribbon Headbands and more!

      Those are very JCrew looking Janet.

      I bought my girls their necklaces and will probably get them one other thing...the necklaces were about $60.

        I'm planning to spend about the same...I think I'm going to get them each a personalized compact mirror and then buy a spa treatment for each of them at the resort during our spa day.

              I only have one BM & I bought her dress ($100), I am going to give her a very pretty starfish necklace that was approx $45. I am also paying for her hair & make up ($225) up as well as a pedicure the day before the wedding ($50). Wow - that's $420!!! I think I'm good...

              Andrea - that is a very generous thing for your bridal party! That is wonderful if you can do it.

                I spent just under $100/ea for mine. I had 5 girls and I made little "spa" baskets for them. Just yummy bath/spa stuff, some really amazing candles and bathrobes. They all seemed to like their stuff - the robes and candles in particular seemed to be a hit.

                I do really like all your ideas about getting them something "useful" too...like paying for the hair, or maybe mani/pedi etc. The plane ticket idea is very nice too! I'm sure they would be thrilled!

                Just in case you're interested....here are some site for the candles. The salon I go to sells them but I haven't really seen them anywhere else. They are my favorite candles in general but esp. to give as gifts - they burn SO well (long lasting etc) and have a great collection of scents available. The ones I chose for the BM gifts were actually called Wedding...and they seriously smell amazing! It's too bad we can't smell things online!

                The first one is the official site - for some reason I can't get it to load properly - not sure if it's just my crappy work computer or the page iteself.

                Voluspa Candles, Gifts, fragrant incense aromatic room spray

                This next one is a site that sells those candles as well.

                Voluspa, Voluspa Candles, Voluspa Products, Voluspa Fragrances, Voluspa Room Spray, Voluspa Incense, Voluspa Soap, Voluspa Lotion, Voluspa Candle Tins

                  I look on ebay a lot, they have all kinds of starfish necklaces. I actually bought a crystal starfish off of ebay and want to make a necklace to wear for the wedding, the necklaces that have a couple of wires and have little beads throughout the wires (my description is horrible) I have a client that I set up that owns a bead kiosk thing, and while I don't want something with lots of beads, I know they can help me create the necklace I want, and even if its not right for the wedding I'll find something to wear it for!!

                  Also, I did searches for starfish jewelry and found tons of sites, but they're all so different, I'm sure you can find something you'll like!
