Need help picking Bridesmaid gifts!

Recommended Posts

I know this is early, but it's just the type of person I am. smile116.gif Oh well...I was thinking about what gift to get my bridesmaids for the wedding. I have a small wedding party. Its my 2 sisters (maid and matron of honor) and my 2 nieces as junior bridesmaids (they are 10 and 12 years old). I was going to get them the starfish necklaces from Tiffany. They are kinda cute and I though it would go with the theme.

 

Tiffany & Co. | Item | Elsa Peretti® Starfish pendant in sterling silver, mini. | United States

 

I was going to get my sisters the mini (I havent seen them in person, but I figured the mini might be cute. Who wants a huge starfish around their neck) I thought I would get my nieces the mini mini.

 

Anyway...the mini's are $260 each = $520

the mini mini's are $216 = $432

 

so in total it's $952 + tax. (Holy censored.gif ! Its the first time I added that up)

 

Am I being stupid to spend that much, or is it normal? What is everyone else giving? I need ideas! I liked this idea, but budget is also important.

Hi! I'm getting married the same day and I'm thinking of everything now. I don't think it's too early!

 

I'm also having a small wedding party. My sister and 2 flower girls ages 7 and 2. Try the website KendraScott.com..beautiful jewelry and Loveivy.com for the flower girls. Hope this helps. I was going to get something from Tiffany too but its too expensive for me and my sister has so much from there. I thought these two websites had different stuff!

i think it is possible to find something truly fabulous and unique for quite a bit less than what you would spend at Tiffany's.

 

I only have one BM who lives in NY and already has all the Tiffany's stuff she could want, so i went with something handmade over at Etsy. It's a great place for unique items. (Granted some of the stuff isn't the quality you would want to give for an event like this, but some of it is wonderful. You're just not paying the "corporate" or image costs associated with a place like Tiffany's.)

 

This is the big part of my BM gift. There will be a few other small things thrown in... I think it was roughly $100 and looks so much better in person that i have already teased her that if she doesn't like her gift, i am keeping it! (And it will look stunning with her dress for the wedding.)

ok - this is just my opinion so no offense to anyone else but i wouldn't appreciate that gift at all for the cost of it - what i mean by that is that Tiffany's (to me) is not that special and way, way, way overpriced -it is all about the blue box.

 

you can get them super fabulous gifts for way less money!

 

what about this:

 

personalized tote bags

massage GC at your resort

spa robes with their initial monogram

framed pics of all 3 sisters

a nice journal / bookmark

some other odds and ends

 

if you want to do jewlery, there are some great handmade jewelry vendors on Etsy and even one on this forum (Agape Jems).

 

personally, i would appreciate something one of kind and unique (even if it was $10) over a starfish necklace from Tiffany's that is $150.

 

sorry guys!

Kohl's sells a sterling silver starfish necklace...I think it is about $25. Unless someone was absolutely crazy about Tiffany's, I don't think I'd spend that much on a necklace!

I got some nice necklaces and pendants off ebay actually and it cost me next to nothing. I don't think that I could justify spending that much on my bridal party and only having the one thing to give them!

It's completely up to you on how much you spend on the BM gifts. I am spending about $150.00 for each BM. (I bought them engraved necklaces for the wedding and a gift certificate to the resort spa once we get to Mexico.

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
