      They are only being repeated because when most people reply to someones post they hit quote or at least that is what i do. I just do it so the person knows who i am replying to or commenting on.

        Okay these are all awesome ideas! Thanks for sharing!

        Nothing is written in stone yet, but this is what I am thinking so far.... My MoH is my sister, who will be not quite 18 and just graduating from high school then, and my BM is a very good friend who is going way above and beyond. We only are having one GM. My two brothers are going to be helping with music and MCing and stuff too.

        For the girls:

        MoH - got her coconut bath stuff with the "Will you be my MoH" card

        Going to get her and BM:

        a straw-style beach bag (they are 75% off at walmart now - the moms get that too)

        a starfish necklace (inexpensive)

        after-sun lotion

        a satiny robe

        DIY barefoot sandals

        a frame

        a pashmina

        tank tops (that say Maid of Honour, etc.)

        Pink engraved flasks

        Passport covers (if I can find them)

         

        The moms are probably going to get most of the same. I am also taking the girls for a spa weekend in place of a stagette; I will be paying for the spa package on the trip.

         

        For the dads:

        bucket hats

        I want to do something else too for them.... Not sure what yet though

         

        For the GM:

        Right now we like the flip camera, but our wedding is far away. It will probably be something like that though.

         

        Other VIP:

        all of our guests are getting smallish bubba kegs. My brothers and my dad and the GM are getting the big ones instead too. 

         

        What do you think? I am happy with the decisions for the girls; I am picking up bits and pieces as I go.

          Oh, I almost forgot; we will also be purchasing the outfits for them, but we are doing Old Navy linen for the GM and basic sundresses from the clearance rack for the girls. We are not purchasing the outfits for my brothers or our parents; the moms are also not getting the flasks or after-sun lotion, and I will be writing thank-you letters to each of my girls. 

          My wedding is not until 2013, but I am picking up stuff from the end-of season sales and saving a ton of money that way. This is really the ONLY place we are splurging for the whole wedding; we are not having a lot of people there, and we chose people extremely important to us for the wedding party, all of whom are going crazy already about it!

          Do you think we should get something extra for my brothers too? Besides the larger bubba keg? I cannot budget much more money for it, so it would have to be something small... we are debating having them hand out programs or something too, depending on how many people book. Men are the hardest to shop for, I think! Actually, I am pretty sure the dads are the hardest!

          Keep the ideas coming, ladies!

              I love these dresses!! Where did you find them? I wish I would have seen these before I bought my girl's dresses.  And I think the necklace will look great with all of them. It's a pretty simple necklace. I don't think it will clash at all.
