    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!

              Im only having a MOH standing for me.
              I bought her dress - $145
              Coach purse $80 (from the outlet store) & Coach wristlet - $35 from the outlet
              Flight from her town to mine where our group departs from $380
              Mani/pedi in the Dominican $?
              Im pretty sure that sounds like enough right?

                    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.
