    I'm thinking I may make (or purchase if I'm short on time) some anklets for my BMs so that even if they secretly don't like them, they can wear them without it being a big deal (I may also get some little jewelry boxes for them).

    Do you guys get your MoH something extra? And if so...what kinda of things do you get?

    DGG, what are you hoping to spend on each? My best recommendation would be Etsy since you'll definitely find something in your price range that's nice!

      I bought my BMs necklaces on Etsy. I think they were $55 each but they are AMAZING (or at least the picture of them is - I haven't received them yet). Anyways, I'm basically telling them in advance not to buy a necklace but I won't be giving it to them until the rehearsal. My MOH is in on it and she's going to look for some cheap matching earrings.

        That is a very cool necklace!

        We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

        We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

            Now are you ladies expecting a normal bridal shower- I'm wondering if i should just not have one since its only going to be the 15 girls who are able to attend the wedding...I don't want my BM's spending a ton of money on a bridal shower for such a small event. Unless we just have a small luncheon just us ladies when at the resort...

            I'm not having an AHR so i'm thinking the luncheon when at the resort may be the best thing, thoughts?

              I think about $50 each - I haven't looked much on etsy, thanks for the suggestion :)

                angie8119 -
                I think it's sort of up to them since they are throwing it - but if you don't want them to spend a lot of money, just tell them you would be happy with something really low-key at someone's house or something..

                  We decided to flip half the bill for my MoH. I also bought her jewellery on Etsy and we're paying for the limo transfers to and from the airport.

                    I was thinking of buying my BM's dresses/shoes as their gifts? Is this okay?
                    I don't think I'm going to have a shower either, I figured the ladies that would be invited would be at the wedding anyway and we are not expecting any gifts since they are paying for their own travel/accommodations...
