    Donie we're also doing the same for our bridal party. Purchasing the girls dresses, and purchasing the gms attire. I'll let the girls pay for their hair etc bc I'm pretty sure there'll be other things that we may pitch in and pay for them.

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.

        I'm thinking of keeping it simple and finding some nice hawaii themed tank tops for all us girls to where. That way they can use them as beach where or as pjs.......I suspect I'll be buying there accessories/shoes or paying for the make up and hair, so it'll balance out there.

          I have thought so hard about this and definatly want to get them something but I just have no idea what! I was going to get them something wedding related like jewlery to wear, but I just found out my moh went out and bought some. I guess I'll have to see what they dont get for Christmas lol!

            I learned the best time to rack up on little trinkets or gifts for th bridal party is to shop on Black Friday! I'm hoping to get some good stuff at half the normal price.

              something to start thinking about already! I still have a year.  I'm not entirely sure how many bridesmaids I'll have (I know one potential is a teacher, so she won't be coming if she has a job next year).


              I also don't really like the word "bridesmaid".  I'm trying to think of a better word for them!

                I have 6 BM's. I bought their dresses and I'm going to get them starfish necklaces. I also ordered them make-up bags with their initial on it. We're doing OOT bags for our guests so they will get one of those as well. Some of them aren't getting their hair done because it's naturally curly and has style to it, so I'm not paying for their hair. They get a 20% discount for the spa with their vacation package anyway so I'm not going to worry about it.


                We're going to buy the GM suits and shirts. I would like to get them something else though....I like the idea of my FI planning an excursion for them. Keep the ideas coming! haha

                    i bought my bridesmaids canvas tote bags with their names embroidered, beach towels, flip flops (reefs for my maid of honor and matron of honor and old navy for the rest), wet bikini bags, starfish picture frames and i got them each little dainty heart necklaces with the letter of their first name stamped on it from etsy.  i think i am finished with their gifts unless i see something else i have to have! haha...

                      Yeah I dont think there are specific guidelines. I want to give them something they will remember and wont end up in a drawer somewhere so my FI and I are going to pay for all of our wedding party to do an excursion as their gift. Like go snorkelling or something when we are in Mexico, we will invite the other people coming to our wedding, but we will be treating it as a special occassion for everyone that hepled us out so much in leading up to this day.
