    Hello my fellow brides!

     

    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!

            I had personal bags made up for my girls...  The seller on etsy is actual local to where I am and I was able to pick the individual fabric designs with the seller...  I did these to use for my MOH and BM in place of the OOT bags.

                  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!!
