    Hello girls!

    I have a few questions... I am buying my BM's jewelry for them. I haven't told them yet but I know it is usually expected from the bride. I'm fine with it and am very excited to get it for them!

    1. When is the proper time to give it to them?
    2. Should I tell them ahead of time so they don't buy some?
    3. Do I still need to give them a gift for being in the wedding or is this sufficient enough?

    I don't want to be cheap but I just want to know what is proper.

    Need your opinions, thanks!

      I did a special OOT bag for my MOH (I didn't have any other BMs), included her jewelry in there, and gave it to her when she arrived. You could also give them the jewelry during your welcome or rehearsal dinner if you plan on having one. I would just mention to them that you don't need them to buy accessories.

              If they ask, then just tell them not to worry about it, but otherwise I wouldnt go outright and tell them. My bmaids asked me and I said they could get anything gold, whatever they wanted, b/c I am not buying their jewellry for them as their gift.

                  I'm going to give it to them at the rehearsal dinner. I also bought them a super cute orange clutch so I will put their jewelery in the clutch. We will also give the groomsmen their gifts as well (we got them Cole Haan travel wallets).
