maybe you get them something that doesn't have anything to do with the wedding at all. start with what they're interested in - you mentioned them running the last 10 miles of your marathon with you, what about a $100 gift certificate to a sporting goods store so they can pick out some new shoes? or a day at the spa (either locally or at your destination)? and there are always Victoria's Secret gifts - swimwear, robes, lotions, etc. you can't go wrong.

 

I also like the idea of framed pictures. as a post-wedding thank you. after you're home, you could send them a professional photo of yourselves together taken at the wedding.

 

if you want to stick with the destination theme, there are LOTS of ideas on another thread: coach passport cover, a BM bikini, terry chair cover with pockets, jewelry, sarongs, pashmina wraps, luggage tags, etc.

i've been in a few weddings and have gotten either nothing or earings for their wedding (which were nice, but i'll never wear again) so when i was picking out what to get my bridesmaids i thought of what i would like, if i were in their shoes.

i got them each a "flip" camcorder with an under water case, i figured since we will be going to mexico for the wedding they will be able to use it there, and they both travel alot so they would get a lot of use out of it.

i waited for them to go onsale and they were just over $100 each!

That's an AWESOME gift! I remember that the Today Show gave them away to an engaged couple for their wedding favors, and I thought it was amazing. (Unfortunately I had 7 girls to shop for, and couldn't spend that much on each one =P )

hey ladies - I was at a multi-million dollar lakehouse over the weekend, and they had these AMAZING, sturdy coasters with photos of local places. they can even make custom coasters from your own photos. the website is here:

my MOH and I met in college here at UT, and certain places will always hold such great memories for us - especially now that she's living in Dallas. I thought it would be great to get her some Austin coasters for her place. she is definitely the type who has everything, so this will be perfect!!

The Tiffany Bracelets sound like a nice idea, and if they can be engraved somehow that would be even better! How special would that be to have a little something written on the bracelet for being the wedding. Any other ideas that are unique and special?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
