Post Your Gifts For Your Wedding Party Here!

Recommended Posts

Here is what I have come up with so far:

 

Bridemaids:

$200 dress

Main/Pedi day before we leave

Makeup & hair day off

 

Groomsmen:

Suits

Excursion once we arrive in Maui

 

It doesn't sound like much for the maids to me, but the dresses cost us $600 total, hair & makeup will be $550 total & mani/pedi will be $300 total so does that seem like a sufficient gift??

 

 

The groomsmen really don't even know they are suppose to get a gift, lol. We bought their suits, which were around $100 each & we are paying for them to go on an excursion the day before the wedding which cost around $100.

I think thats really great kstinson. We are the same way so far:

 

Bridesmaids:

7 Dresses from jcrew (I just ordered them yesterday because its 20% off your entire order until memorial day) ranged from $134-$144 each

7 Spa wraps from smartpantsboutique $21/each

 

Groomsman (my FI is in charge of this, so this was all his choice)

7 White collared long sleeve dress shirt from banana $65

7 pairs of Linen pants from banana $85

 

Not sure what else we will get. But will probably spend another $100 on each of them as we are letting them do whatever they want with their hair and makeup. I figure im not getting mine done so I don't want to make them.

I hired a stylist to come to our condo in Maui to do our hair/makeup. I thought it would be fun!! We won't have to worry about going anywhere, so we can have some drinks, get beautiful :) & just have a good time.

 

I've never been in a DW before, so I'm not sure what protocol is for gifts. Hope what we are doing is enough to say thanks.

MOH-- Mesh ring from Tiffany's and also an pearl style opal necklace from Tiffany's. (I will give her the necklace the day of, it matches her dress beautifully)

 

BMs-- Tiffany's MEsh Ring

 

FG-- Elsa Peretti Starfish necklace from Tiffany's. Really cute, and she LOVES necklaces. (more of a keepsake for later-- she's only 2)

 

FOB-- Made him a "storybook" scrapbook of our lives together (Birth to Bride type of thing)

 

MOB-- Still in the works, so far I bought her an Elsa Peretti Charm Bracelet, but I'd like to get her something special for the big day.

 

GMs-- FI designed custom golf bags with matching cart duffel for each of the boys. The straps have their nicknames on them, and they have a logo they designed years ago for their annual golf trip-- so that was printed on the side. They should arrive early next week, I'll post pics.

 

I have quite a few periferals that I wanted to give gifts to (Stepmom, FMIL, mom's BF, Grandparents) so I made them all funny gifts.

 

For Example, I made my mom's bf a t-shirt that said "I'm with the MOB"

 

hee hee!

 

I found the gift buying SUPER fun, good luck and happy deciding!

Is anyone paying for their bridal party as a gift? We have 12 people in ours (not counting brother and sister) and we are paying for their whole stay in Mexico, excluding flights.

Could that count as a gift or should we get them something more.

 

PS-everyone is getting an OOT bag too. I just hadn't thought of anything extra for the BP.
