How much should I spend on my gifts to my bridesmaids?

Recommended Posts

my bridesmaids are my sisters, so it was a different situation. i paid for their flights to mexico, bought then wedding day jewelry to match their dresses, and MOH tanks. Without the flights, the jewelry and tanks cost about $100 per girl. When I've been a bridesmaid, I have received wedding jewelry, which I'd guess cost about $75-100, so that seems like the going range to me.

Being that I only have two bridesmaids – I kind of splurged on them. I purchased their silver sandals for the beach wedding they look like this!

Then for all of their efforts they are getting matching Frank Gehry Orchid Pendants, from Tiffanyâ€s, I canâ€t wait to see the look on their faces when I give them their little blue bags. I plan to give them to them on the morning of the wedding.

I am getting my 4 bridesmaids an aromatherapy massage at the spa, my maid of honor gets a full body polish + aromatherapy massage. I also got them their jewelry (custom made by someone on etsy.com--$58 for earrings and bracelet) and some cute wristlets for their welcome bags to carry their money, chapstick, etc. in.

 

My 2 flower girls are getting mermaid towels with "Flower Girl" embroidered on them. They were a little pricey for towels, but we couldn't resist! Would post the link...but I'm not sure how to!

Whoops, I meant to include the cost!!

Massages: $130/bridesmaid (+ 15% discount that came with my wedding package)
Wristlets: $8 per pouch
Jewelry: $58
TOTAL: ~$175/bridesmaid

Oh... I love the Blue Star Pendant Necklace. That would go perfect with my color scheme and the price is good. And, yes I would love to see the looks on my girls faces when I give them a little blue bag! That's $80.

And I am also going to get them garter flasks - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php...ng_id=15944470
in my wedding colors; because if nothing else, my best friends in the wedding love to drink and party! Those are $38 each approx.

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.
Wow.. thats awfully generous!! (the $500 toward their trips).. All the bridesmaids that could make it for me WANTED to go down and considered it a great reason for a vacation, so I don't feel bad about the added costs... I'm almost happy that I was able to help spice up their year! lol

I'm spending about $100-$200 on each girl, I have 5 maybe 6 in my wedding party. I'm having jewellery custom made for them from this fabulous designer in Vancouver, so the cost depends on the materials used and the piece itself. I'm so excited! I can't wait! cheesy.gif
