Bridesmaid Gifts..should I Give More?

Recommended Posts

I think this is plenty. I was a BM for two friends and I received a personalized compact mirror and in the other our dresses were purchased. I thought the ideas were great. For my BMs I purchased a tote (the colors of the wedding); inside I am putting their shoes, jewelry and clutch (which they will use the day of the wedding). I did not buy anything separate for my MOH.

Great ideas! I'm torn on how much to spend as well.. 7 bridesmaids and 7 groomsmen! The gifts are going to be a solid chunk of our budget :S

These are great gifts!!! So far I'm giving mine: Stella&Dot necklace to wear to the wedding, cute wedge sandals to wear to the wedding, a clutch purse (they can use it the night of the wedding if they choose to), and a beach romper (to double as a 'getting ready outfit' the morning of the wedding).

 

When I asked them to be my bridesmaids I already gifted them a fun basket with: a Stella&Dot friendship bracelet, nailpolish in my wedding color, tropical scented lotions, aloe and tanning lotion, small travel bag

You all have lucky ladies :)

 

This is what I have done so far

 

1. Prada makeup bags in our color  (they are from China, if you get my drift hehe)

2. Anklet with an infinity symbol and beads in our wedding color (Etsy)

3. white flip flops with flower that attaches for the wedding if the sand is too hot (old navy)

4. bangles to wear at the wedding  (East Indian store)

5. small picture frame with a picture of us 2 in it  (Michaels)

6. I paid for a small portion of their dress ($40 of each maids)

 

I may throw in some kleenex, chapstick, etc.

They will also get all the gifts that everyone else is getting - luggage tags, maracas, etc.

 

So far that is about $70 each, the makeup bags were a wedding gift to me... for them.  Such a lovely coworker I have.

 

A Pandora bracelet was on my list, but it just isn't in the budget! :)

Ok I plan on giving my bridesmaids each a coach wristlet, barefoot jewellery and earrings to wear the wedding day and a pair of sanuk sandals because I love sanuks and I know none of them own a pair.  Do you think I'm giving them enough??  Should I give more?  If so suggestions? Should I give my MOH something extra?  I was MOH for her but I don't remember getting anything extra compared to the other bms.  Let me know what you ladies think

wow...thats definitely enough!

my girls are getting beach cover ups or tanks that say bridesmaid etc plus I'll give them jewelry for that day and possibly flip flops. ..now I feel cheap...but on top of all the other things for the wedding it's just getting to be so much stuff and expense. .not saying they aren't worth it but FI says we have to stop at some point

These gifts are all really lovely! I agree - it's not about the cost at all, but what you know your ladies will like :).
 

I'm going to give my girls things unrelated to our wedding. As a BM, I personally disliked getting things engraved with the couple's wedding date, etc. so I'm avoiding any of that. For the wedding I bought their dresses, and told them they can wear whatever shoes, jewelry and makeup/hair they want - also so I don't have to pay for them haha

They're getting our OOT bag, and also Kate Spade bracelets so far, and I'm looking at adding either a nice Tory Burch or Kate Spade make up bag/wallet or cell phone thing, or I might just do gift cards to Sephora or a spa certificate b/c I know they'd like that. I'm also going to do a sentimental thing and make a photo book of pics and a nice card.

 

My FI is giving his groomsmen headphones. We got these awesome headphones from a trade show as a gift, and we never opened or used them, so we're going to give those. Kind of bad i know to regift, but they retail for over $200 each and we think the groomsmen would love them.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
