    I know there's a lot of posts on gifts, but I had a "unique" epiphany and am curious to get some feedback. I've been wracking my brain trying to figure out what to get my special ladies. I want to get them something nice but we're on a budget and we are already covering  their all-inclusive fees for the three days they'll be there (pluss the husband of the married one), basically doubling our wedding bill. I found champagne flutes at Tiffany's for $15 and was thinking about giving them to each girl with a letter about the many things we'll be celebrating together as we continue our lives together. You're all full of great ideas; what do you ladies think? Should I give one or two? Would this be something you'd like to receive or would it seem random?  Thanks!

      I think that sounds fine!!!  I honestly think paying for their all-inclusive fees for three days is a gift all in itself!! So to me, anything else is above and beyond.

        I think that sounds great! I agree with Jessica though, the real gift is you covering the expenses, anything else is a wonderful bonus!


        With that said, if you're going to do it, I think it should be 2 instead of 1. That way they can use them when they have a fancy date night, one seems a bit sad.

          I think this is a lovely idea and may even steal it :-))))))

          Having said that I would give them a pair of glasses xx

            LOL! I didn't even think about one glass feeling "sad," but I think you're right. I'm going to scoop these up. Thanks guys!

              I think covering all of their fees is a very nice gift and the flutes would be above and beyond.  If you do the flutes you should by a pair which makes it more expensive and possibly out of your budget.

                covering everyone's fee's is amazing - we are only covering the maid of honor's hotel and then giving the rest of the bridesmaids extra gifts in their welcome bags - i got cute beach cover-ups from victorias secret, jeweled flip flops from jcrew and little straw beach cosmetic bags.

                for the groomsmen, my fiance paid for all of their outfits for the ceremony since it was specific - white linen shirts and navy linen pants.

                  I think covering everyone's hotel arrangements is enough.

                    I wish I could cover the cost of my bridesmaids, but its just not possible.  What a great idea though!
