      I'm not certain yet because of costs (7 bridesmaids, 1 junior bridesmaid and 2 flower girls, plus 6 or 7 groomsmen) but ideally I would like to pay for the ladies dress material (and they can pay the seamstress) as well as their flipflops. I also want to go to the Coach Outlet and find wristlets for all of them (not matching - I'd like to pick ones that suit each of them individually) because we are getting married on a cruise so the wristlets would be perfect for their Room Key and small digital cameras!


      For the Junior Bridesmaid and Flower Girls, I want to find something that they can keep in their china cabinets when they are older. I know that I value items like these from when I was younger. I will also have to think of something more exciting for them for now.... although I know that they would love Coach wristlets too! (a 14 year old, 8 year old and 7 year old..... what have I done, influencing them to like Coach at this young of an age?!)


      Luckily, I am a makeup artist so I will be doing makeup lessons before we go so that everyone can do their own, and they will probably do each others hair since they will likely be hanging out at the beach after the ceremony (and getting ready again once we are back on the ship in the evening for the reception). When we were in Vegas last year for a stagette we all did each others hair, and it looked fantastic. They will save money this way!

        Oh, and for the guys..... I really have no idea and I doubt my fiance does either! We are going to buy them their ties.... perhaps their shirts too if I can find a good deal (may have to go across the border to Washington from Canada where everything is significantly cheaper).... they would probably love some of the pre-paid drink tickets you can buy before departing on the cruise!

            When I got married, I spend a little amount for BM's gifts. It's not that extravagant because my wedding is just simple. All of my BMs liked the gifts I gave to them.

                I am thinking of doing Pandora bracelets with custom charms for each BM.
