I agree with the gift for the WC. That's a really great idea! Now, if only my WC would ever talk to me to deserve one!!!

    Those are all great gifts! I never thought about Tommy Bahama for the groomsmen. My FI loves their buttondowns. What do the Coach passport covers look like? I'm waiting for Coach to come out with some cute luggage tags....nevermind they'll probably just get ripped off the bags.
    And thanks for the idea of Tiffany's gifts for the WC, I'm totally stealing that idea for mine and our TA.

      Is it too late to change WC's? Or are you going with the one at the resort?

        What's up with your WC?

        Here is the Coach passport cover. I got one in black and one in the khaki/crimson. So cute. You know, when I was in the Coach store last night, I saw two large pieces of luggage that had really nice dark brown luggage tags on them. I looked around to see if the tags were sold separately, but I couldn't find them. I should have asked a salesperson, duh I even checked the website today and no luck. Maybe soon. But I agree, they'll probably just get stolen.

          My BIL (who is escorting me down the aisle) - Black leather Coach travel accessories bag. Got this at the Coach Outlet.

          Brendan's sisters (who will be translating the ceremony) - Coach passport covers. I didn't like the one they had at the Outlet, so I went with the one in the retail store.

          Brendan's nephew (our ringbearer) and my new nephew (who isn't going to the wedding but I don't care, I wanted to get him something anyway - LOL!!!) - Silver starfish cufflinks

          My two sisters (both are MOH), my mom, my niece (my flower girl) and me - Tiffany's starfish necklace. I was originally going to get the big one for us and the little one for my niece, but when I got to the store yesterday, the big one was WAY TOO BIG, so I ended up getting the little one for all of us. Here it is.

          Tiffany & Co. | Item | Elsa PerettiĀ® Starfish pendant, mini mini. Sterling silver. | United States

          That's it. I'm so glad this in finally done.
          Ah... a girl after my own heart! 3 of my favorites! And I have the Tiffany starfish necklace with the diamond and I wear it every day. If you haven't tried it on yet, you might want to. It comes with a 16 inch chain and I had my lengthened to 18 inches so it looked a little better. Now I'm not exactly petite either so the longer chain was better for me. Just a suggestion. They should be able to lengthen it for you free of charge.

          hijack... but my WC is from the resort. I just don't think she finds my wedding which is five months away important. And, in all honesty it makes it very stressfree to think about planning everything when I get there and not really caring. Problem is... I do care! or I'd like to care!

          Ah well, i'm getting married... that's all that's important!

          Oh... and now I want that Coach passport cover. Thanks pal

            Yeah, they're sneaky over there (they rip you off with that whole 16 inch chain nonsense.) I always have to get a longer chain. It sucks. For my mom, sisters and Gretchen, I kept the chain as is. I figured I would let them try it on first and if they want it longer, I'll take it back. I work across the street from Tiffany's on 5th Avenue, so it's not a problem for me. Oh, but they do charge you to lengthen it. Can you believe them $15 for the first inch, and $1 for each additional inch.

                Trisha - that is exactly how my WC is. I hate her. Such strong words, but seriously, she can't even give me pics of the bouquets until I emailed her like 4 times. And I wasnt being impatient either. This was over like a 4 month period! I am trying to keep it relaxed and know that everything will be fine cuz I will be married to Matt. But it's hard to forget the details, cuz damnit, they are important!

                  They're so cute. I love the Khaki/Crimson one.

                  Oh, and while we're on the topic - Coach also makes perfume now. It's SOOOOO nice, so of course I bought that for myself last night too. Hee, hee!!!
