      Wow, some of you girls are so awesome!! I might have to look into making up little bags of goodies for our attendants too.

       

      As of right now, their gifts for the weddings day are:

       

      Bridesmaids:

      I had their jewellery made for them by an amazing jewellery designer,  just outside of Toronto (she will also, design for anyone and ship it to you). I was fortunate enough to go into her studio and work with her to personally pick the jewels to be used for the earrings and necklaces. 

       

      She also designed my wedding jewellery too :)

      Groomsmen:

      My Fi has a watch obsession (like a lot of guys!) Seeing as I spent quite a bit on my girls dresses and jewellery, he decided that he wanted to treat the boys with matching watches.

       

      He chose a Nixon watch with blue faces (to match our wedding colours) - cute.

        I totally agree about wanting to make sure they know how thankful I am! Thank you.. I really think/hope she'll like it.

         

        All of our guests are getting great gifts, though. Shizz... I'd wanna go to my wedding to get a gift! lol I just found the perfect tote bag for the girls, too. Light blue tote bag with chocolate colored starfish detail. Simple, nice, big, and in our wedding colors! I really need to get the guest list confirmed (that's not happening for MONTHS) so I can buy gifts though! lol

        I am hoping to do the same type of things for my 3 girls.  I want them to know how thankful I am that they are making the trip down to Mexico with me.

          Hi Ladies!

           

          I love this forum and all of the ideas I get from it. I'm slowly starting to accumlate stuff for my OOT bags and gifts for our bridal party. I got some bubba keg mugs for the boys when they went on sale (had to get a raincheck for most of them though) and just ordered some cute little pendants on ebay for the girls.

           

          My question is, I've seen more then one person say they are giving Coach wristlets. I think this is a cute gift, personally I love Coach and that wristlet size is all you need when youre somewhere tropical. Are you guys paying retail for them? Or is there some kind of bargain coach wristlet place I'm not aware of? :)

           

          Thanks!

            My bridesmaid got me a super cute coach wristlet off ebay that she said she got a great deal on (although there you risk the 'might not be real' chance).  I also have a couple of Coach Outlets near me that have great deals!  I just bought a medium/large size summer purse from the outlets for $119 -- originally $379!!

              Okay, I don't have any coach or coach outlets near me and with the wedding coming I don't foresee myself travelling to any anytime soon! How much are the wristlets usually at the coach outlet?

                Honestly, I'm not sure.  Probably around $70-75.  I bought my girls custom wristlets from Etsy for around $15-20.  He has endless fabrics and styles to choose from and I was very happy with him as a vendor.

                  -flip flops
                  -barefoot sandals
                  - bathing suit coverup
                  - palm tree photo frame
                  - People crossword puzzle book
                  - sunblock
                  - silver starfish necklaces
                  - i'm having my mom make the wedding jewelery and will also put in the bags
                  - pjs
                  - passport covers
                  - team bride tanks from customized girl
                  - travel kit that has mirror, tweezers, nail cutters
                  - makeup bag that i'm going to fill with travel size toiletries

                  And i think that's it for them.

                  For the RB we bought his outfit also and 2 other shirts for him to wear when we are away (we dont' have a fg):
                  - personalized toiletry bag
                  - ringbearer tshirt
                  - a couple of books
                  - sand bucket and sand toys
                  - baby sunblock
                  - bathing suit and surf shirt
                  - mickey mouse passport cover (thanks to Tammi)

                    I love the idea of robes and pjs.  I would just hate to get people things that aren't quite their style
