    Is there any guideline for how much to spend on your BM's gifts?

      Not sure really, I guess whatever your budget will allow you, I will probably only have one BM so I can splurge a little bit but I dont want to go over $100 at least Im going to try not to! I'll probably get her a personalized tote bag and put some goodies in it.

      Any idea what your doing for your groomsmens that seems to be the hardest for me I have no idea what to get them, I dont want to get a bunch of useless junk.

        I don't think there is a specific rule as to how much you should spend, that would be weird. But it's just about what you are comfortable with.

          My fiance is handling his guys because they tend to be a bit excessive in their gift giving.  :o)  He had tossed around the idea of an Ipod touch. 

           

          I have two bridesmaids, and two junior bridesmaids (my daughter and my niece - both 13).  I already got them all a make up bag with their initial and then the younger girls a tote and smaller bag.  I want to buy their wedding day jewelry but I'd like it to be something they can use again.  I am too darn indecisive though!!

               I got my bm's tifanny bead bracelets. The silver ones. they seemed to LOVE them. They wore them for the rehearsal dinner but not for the wedding. I've seen them wear them a ton since then so I feel I chose wisely.

                  Great, thanks for the suggestion Lo. 

                   

                  Brandy, I know right!  I want one!  But, he was best man in both of their weddings and one got him like a $400 motorcycle jacket!!  I'm telling you these boys are ridiculous!

                      I am still trying to figure out my BM gifts also.  I am thinking an embroidered tote with flip flops, their wedding day jewelry and whatever else I can find :)

                       

                      My FI is thinking that he is going to get his guys their shirts for the ceremony and either reef sandals or gator sunglasses.
