Bridesmaid Gifts - Creative Ideas?

Recommended Posts

Hello my fellow brides! pinkie.gif


I'm getting married at the Sandos in Playa Del Carmen this November and have 5 BM's! I have been trying to get some ideas for non-traditional BM gifts. Something they'll love obviously and something easy to get down there.


Here is one thing I'm doing for each of them. Since they're all married already and will be taking their BM dresses on the plane with them as carry on, I thought this was neat!






Post up any ideas you may have, I appreciate them all!


Thank you!!

Or their Maiden name... I thought about that too... I would probably just do their maiden name or their first name alone...  :)


I found this too, so cute!



This is pretty too...

I forgot to add... one of the first things I did when I picked the girls in my wedding was had a little get together.  None of them really knew each other, outside of hearing about them, so we did a little game night at my place.  While they were all there I had made up some questions already and one of them was what are your two favorite colors?  From the colors, that's how I picked the fabric for the bags!

I think if you have them divide (like I did too), it just helps a little bit.  I mean, they are going to have a lot of interaction with each other as time gets closer to the wedding.  They'll be planning your bridal shower and bachelorette party together (I assume), and then they will spend the time at the wedding together... it's just easier to break the ice sooner rather than later!  It was also a great "excuse" to get the girls together to have a girls night and have some fun, with good food!!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
