    I love this necklace! Found it at overstock.com for 26.99! I want to find earrings to that match and then I am going to pay for their hair and makeup to be done that day as well!! I think I am going to buy them clutch purses and matching flip flops to their dress at dessygroup.com.starfish earrings at overstock.jpgbridemaid gift.jpg

      Check out evesaddiction.com for starfish earrings.  You may find something to match there.  :o)  Good luck!

        I have 8 BM's and one junior one so I have to get REALLY creative with what I get them so I don't spend a fortune.

          For our bridesmaids we bought their dresses and I would like to get them flip video cameras, however, they have informed me that they all want to have their hair and make-up done and I don't feel comfortable making them pay for that...so they may be getting hair and make-up instead (no fun!). For the boys we bought their pants, shirts, and sandals for the wedding and fiance is paying for them all to go deep sea fishing together the day before the wedding.

              Good ideas!  I better start thinking of gifts, although that's hard to do with Xmas around the corner...I have until June though

                    We spent $150 on each BM/GM-we have 6 total-and paid for their wedding day outfits.  We know it is a bit more than we would have spent if our wedding was at home, but since they are all spending a fortune on airfaire and the resort, we didn't want to make anyone feel burdened with buying dresses and suits too.

                      Hey girls -- I handed out the BM gifts last weekend at my bachelorette party.  I got them totes with their first initial on the front, Coach passport holder (genius idea I thought -- at outlets for $39 less 20% off), Coach wristlets in white for the reception (since they only need their camera and lipstick), the wedding day shoes and a travel cosmetic bag with their initials on the front. 

                       

                      The GM are getting the Flip videocameras (FH took a job overseas so they had to cancel the bach. party so they are having the bach. party in Punta Cana 2 days before the wedding). 

                       

                      We spent more on the girls than the boys but that is because I'm a sucker for great deals!
