    Which necklace should I get for my BM?


    My colors are red and aqua and they are wearing red dresses. I don't care if they wear them with their dresses - I just want them to have something they like.

    STARFISH JEWELRY | Sea Creature Charm Sterling Silver Jewelry Cast From Real Sea Life Specimens | UncommonGoods

    This is the cheapest.

    : WhiteTrashCharms.Com Boutique

    This one isn't that much more.

    Tiffany & Co. | Item | Elsa PerettiĀ® Starfish pendant, mini mini. Sterling silver. | United States

    This is the most expensive.

      I hate to say that I love the most expensive option.. But I am sure that since it is a simple pendent, I'm sure you can find one cheaper. All you are doing is paying for a brand!

        The most expensive is in my budget so no worries there. I only have 2 BM so I have more room to spoil them.

        I think that is my fav too - just because it is more classic and simple. They could wear it with other stuff.

          I agree. BTW, I have 9 BM! I don't think I can budget gifts, haha!

            I agree with Tammy, I would be so excited to get a tiffanys box for a BM gift and if they're within your budget, thats what I'd pick, they're perfect, I want to get one now!

              My bestfriend gave all of us Tiffany's and we all LOVED them! That was 5 years ago and I still wear it all the time. The little blue box lets you know just how special you are. I vote for number 3 for sure! :)

                Since it is in your budget, I'd go with #3. Very nice. :)

                  I say #3. I think a good rule of thumb with BM/GM gifts is to give them something that you would give them for any special occasion or holiday. I don't care who you are, no bridesmaid really wants a shirt that says "bridesmaid'

                  I got each of my sisters (my 2 BMs) a terry juicy outfit. They both LOVE them and wear the all the time. And it was fun for me to give them to them since neither of them would spend the $ on themselves - my older sister has 3 kids and is too frugal, and my younger sister is only 16.

                    Really? That was on the list of things I planned to add to their gift bags . . . who else agrees that nobody wants those commemorative type shirts? This is my first wedding but I thought a bm shirt noting the date/place would be cool since it is in Mexico i.e. a vacation souvenir. . . any thoughts?

                    Oh, and I like #3 also.
