I had a get together with my bridesmaids yesterday and we narrowed down what accessories they will be wearing.

I've already purchased starfish earrings for them as their gifts but I don't want to spoil the surprise since I wanted to give them their gifts the day of the wedding. I let them discuss earring options and they are now all shopping around for earrings. How do I let them know not to look for earrings without ruining the gift??

    I gave my bridesmaids their gifts the morning of my wedding when we were getting ready.  But I told them that their jewelry for the wedding was their gift.  I included little extras that was a Surprise,  monogrammed Champagne flutes, a flower for their hair and a little pocket mirror.

     

    I stood in a wedding and bride had a bridal brunch where she took the girls out to brunch and gave them their gift then and that was 2 weeks before the wedding.

    The morning of the wedding just seems so special. Thanks so much! I'll just give them a heads up not to get earrings. :)

    I'm only having a MOH and we are doing a spa day just the two of us in a few weeks. Even though my wedding isn't until April I decided I'll give her her gift then since she wanted to gift me the spa day before the wedding to relax. So I'm giving her:

     

    - MOH shirt http://shop.weddingc...party-tank-top/

    LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01

    - bottle of her favorite wine

    - necklace with her initial and birthstone (doesn't have to wear it on the wedding day, but she can)

    - a gift certificate for a mani/pedi at our favorite nail place

     

    I also paid for her dress that she'll be wearing at the wedding.

     

    The idea is that she's done so much for me and has been helping me/focusing on me a lot during the wedding prep I wanted to give her something that would be all about her. Hope she likes it!
