What are you getting your wedding party for "thank you" gifts, and how much are you spending?

Recommended Posts

I really have no idea what to get the girls in our wedding party for a gift. I've seen some of you girls on here getting things like nice bracelets from tiffany's and while I've never been in a tiffany's myself I know that they are quite expensive and it definately isn't in our budget.

 

I have four bridesmaids, a junior bridesmaid, and a flower girl, so we're looking at around the $50 mark. I'd love to get the little girls (who are sisters, and will be almost 8 and 10 when we get married) something similar to a pandora bracelet, that have a bead or charm in our wedding colour (Pool Blue/Aqua) or a little seashell charm, and then something more personalized for each of them, like an initial or their birthstone colour, and then another bead for their favourite sport/activity (that way they're the same so they can't argue, but they're made special for them at the same time), but the chains for pandora bracelets start at around $35 and beads start at around $20. Anyone know of something a little more kid friendly that has the same sort of idea as a pandora bracelet?

Since I already got OOT bags AND personalized shot glass wedding favors... I decided that I didnt want to get the wedding party something personalized or something that they would misplace or lose... its also hard to carry alot over seas to your destination as well.  I have felt so blessed with my new addition to my family, and being able to finish school and own a house and get married and not really have to worry about money too much (Im not made of it, but I am still able to have a 10,000 dollar budget while fnishing my final year at school and be a new mom to a gorgeous 6 month old boy)... that I really wanted to give back... so I am buying a few goats from world vision as a donation on behalf of my wedding party..... I know its not really traditional, but neither am I.

We were thinking of doing the same thing.  My MOH and her husband sponser two kids through world vision and my FI and I sponser one, and we were looking at doing something like goats or chickens on behalf of our bridal party!

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.
