    How much are you spending or have already spent? I just want to get an average amount so I don't embarrass myself! :)

      I think I am going to spend around $75-$100 per girl (I have 4). I feel bad not spending more, but I don't think that they expect that much. I was going to pay for their hair too, but I think that I have cut that out.

        I was thinking in the $100-$200 range. I was thinking either digital picture frames or a pair of nice sunglasses and then a little trinket or two. Does anyone have any other ideas?

          I was thinking about a nice white gold necklace and earing set for them each to wear on day

            I am doing a necklace that compliments mine, flip flops, tote bag, MOH tank, paying for her hair, and an engraved Bubba Keg. I guess the total is $100-$200. I only have the one girl.
            I know that other people are paying for excursion for just the girls (the day or two before the wedding I guess).

              I am only having my 3 best friends, if I was having more than that it might be different. I think I am going to get the a silver bangle with something special engraved in it, coach passport covers, and something at the resort spa-we are all going together the day before the wedding. I would say around $150.

              I was just in one of my best friends weddings and she got us coach clutches, shawls for the day of, monogram purse mirrors and her mom made us beautiful jewelry.

                    I spend about $200 I guess. I bought the dresses, shoes, and accessories. I also gave them very nice beach bags with bridemaids tank tops and some nicer OOT bag contents.

                    I did pay $500 toward each person's trip to help defray the cost of going but I don't really count that as a "gift" in the traditional sense.
