Bridesmaid Jewelry.. bit of a happy problem? Need some feedback..

Recommended Posts

Hi BDW Brides!

 

I love this site and especially the forums. Now, I have a little bit of a 'happy problem' I guess you could call it and I know all you creative ladies will have lots of good advice for me. embarrest.gif

 

I have read lots and lots of posts on what people are giving their bridesmaids or special guests and there are people getting some starfish jewelry from Kohl's (I live in Canada, no Kohl's here as far as I know) or even from Tiffany's (amazing idea, just not budget-friendly). I liked that idea! So I did a random search on eBay one day and after pages and pages of starfish pendants, found these really nice starfish pendants that came with a chain, and in my wedding color even (turquoise)! They were really pretty, not like the skinny type of starfish pendant you normally see, these ones were with swarvoski (sp?) crystals, etc. I fell in love with them. And they were $3.74! I asked the seller if he had 5 so I could put one in each of my bridesmaids oot bags, thinking it was going to be like a cheap sort of trinket/keepsake, I didn't think they'd want to wear it to the wedding or anything.

 

Well I got them today. They are gorgeous.

They are a nice size, and super nice quality, and I was expecting the chain to be a cheapie little easy-breaking chain but its NOT. It's not high quality but it's a strong little chain! I mean I would totally dig it if the girls wanted to wear these with their dresses (which we havent even picked out yet)! But I didn't want to be like picking their jewelry out for them... so what do I do?? Do I give it before the wedding?? If so, when? Should I just keep it in their OOT bags?

 

Also, when the seller got back to me, he said he had EIGHT. So then I thought.. one for me(hehe).. five for the bridesmaids (including my MOH and my JR Bridesmaid),, and even two I could give the mother of the bride and mother of the groom! So I bought the lot of them for under 30 bucks and I am doing a mega happy dance because they really are gorgeous, I would have easily spent $20-$40 if I saw these in a store, honestly. I can link you guys to the ebay seller, they had tons more different pendants and different colors, I know there was starfish with clear crystals but I couldn't resist the aqua/turquoise ones.

If I do give them before the wedding, should I give my mom and my future mother in law theirs too before the wedding? I figured they'd have their own outfit going on...

 

What do I do? I found a great deal and now I don't know what to do with it! lol I mean.. if I had paid a lot of money for them, yes I would give them before the wedding in case they wanted to wear them to the wedding.. but because of the price I paid for them.. I feel kinda guilty? I don't know why.. if I can't find something to wear as a necklace I'll wear this! But then I guess it would be nice if we all wore them another time.. if I gave with the oot bag........................ ???

 

See I'm back and forth here, that's why I need your guys' help. :)

Are you having a shower or get together with them before you go? I think giving them before would be nice and get them excited. I'd love the eBay link!

Congrats on your great find!  I think if I had multiple wedding party members I would do the same - turquoise is my color too!  I'm also struggling with the "when."  I only have my sister as my MOH and I am giving her the Tiffany starfish.  On the one hand I want to tell her ahead of time so she can wear it at the wedding and not have to worry about buying something.  But on the other hand I don't want her to think she HAS to wear it for the wedding if she would prefer something else.  We live in different cities so we have been shopping separately - I've seen a picture of her dress but not the real thing so I really don't know what jewelry would look best.  Right now I'm leaving it in limbo and if she brings up the topic of jewelry I'll mention it but if not I think I will wait and give it to her at the rehearsal dinner like originally planned.

Those are beautiful necklaces! I'd love the eBay link as well! I think once you get your dress you can see if they will work as the jewelry and then you can decided. Either way its one heck of a deal!!
