    Hi Brides,

     

    I am having a destination wedding in Mexico next May, I have 7 bridesmaids (!) and I'm just not sure what to get for them? Below is a pic of what I got so far- the clutch was from Aldo, regularly $39.99 but I got them for $15.00- they do multi-item discounts, in case anyone is wondering. And the necklace also from Aldo for $15.00.  That's $30 apiece, but I feel like I want to/should get something else for my MOH?  I am thinking of about another $30-40, is that too much?   I don't want to look cheap, but at the same time, 7 bridesmaids is a LOT!  

     

    Thanks!

    Kristen

      I love the gifts. Can't go wrong with accessories and clutches, especially if they will compliment their look on the big day. I do believe MOH has more responsibilities and financial burden - especially if she is paying for your shower alone. So maybe she deserves something extra... Not expensive, but just to differentiate her from your bridesmaids. Maybe you can give it to her privately to avoid making the other girls feel left out. :D

        I love your bridesmaids gifts! This is what I did......I bought all my girls their dresses and shoes ($150), as well as "guess" wallets from the Guess outlet store ($30), and tropical inspired stuff from Bath & Body Worx ($20). I have 5 bridesmaids. I hope this helps with ideas.

            For my Bridesmaids I paid for their dresses $55 Their shoes $20 and jewelry $20 I also purchased them personalized Champagne Flutes $8.  $103 I spent in total on each bridesmaid.  I am also including something extra in their OOT bag, I am still undecided on the item. 

             

            I am asking that they pay for their hair and make-up at the resort that will cost them $115

                Yeah, I think I'll probably end up spending $70-100 after everything is considered.

                  I'm buying shoeless sandals that I had made for my bridesmaids. I only have 2 so I was able to spend a bit more. I don't think spending 40$ each is being cheap at all. They will appreciate any gift you give them!

                    I guess I forgot to clarify prices, about $150 for their dresses and approx. $95 for their hair.

                      Oh I like the Bath & Body Works idea- I think I missed the boat on that one, I was just there last night and their summery stuff is all gone :( 
                      I was also thinking of a nice lipgloss and some other stuff to make a care pkg type of thing...
