Bridesmaid Gifts - Creative Ideas?

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies! Just curious- does anyone plan on giving their BMs the gift prior to the trip?  We are already hauling so much over there I was wondering if it is weird to not present their gifts while there?

I don't think it would be weird to give their gift before you left.

My brother got married in Florida, my now sister-in-law gave me my welcome bag and present before we left for our trip and although I LOVED the present I really wish I would of been giving the same experience as everybody else and received my oot bags when I got down to Florida and walked into my room. I am planning on giving my girls their presents at our rehearsal dinner!

 

Just a little input!

Thank you so much for this feedback, I was wondering if it would kind of ruin the moment.

I'm determined to attempt the hangers myself one day... I think if I can make wire jewelry that this shouldn't be so hard - we'll see!

 

I love the idea of having a get together and sneaking in the question about their favorite colors! :)

Well Dominiqueamber, since you brought it up I thought I would share my DIY wire name hangers.  When I saw them I too was determined to DIY them myself.  I bought the hangers at our local dollar store 3 for $2 and I even got the wire there too, only $1.25 for A LOT!  I thought I would get it before investing in other wire because if I mess up too bad I am not throwing money down the drain.  I first attempted to do it with my bare hands.... it worked OK but not as tight as I would have liked.  I invested in a pir of jewelry making needle nose pliers at Michaels (under $5 on sale this weekend) and went back at it! I wanted to make one for my Best Friend who is getting married on the 23rd of this month and I am her MOH.  I will be holding a surprise bachelorette/shower for her on the 20th and want to give it to her then.  I finished hers (may attempt it one more time, let me know if you think it is any good lol) and then did a mock up of my own!!!!!!! I removed the wood bar that was attached in the hanger (for pants or something) and attached the wire there.  I considered doing them all wire but like the "durability" of the wood hanger as you know that it will hold the dress lol!!!  I lined the underside of the hanger with ribbon (her colour is pink for mine I just did ivory) to give it a more finished looked and to cover up where the wire is attached.

 

Let me know what you think ladies!!! I am considering doing MOH and BM ones for my wedding but not certain.  I could also do their names.....

Tori you are awesome! These look great. You are a true DIYer. So many projects & they all look so great! I don't get how people are so creatively talented & crafty! lol

I think your friend will really love this especially if you made it.
