BurlapnLace:  I have 3, and I wear them all at the same time. As in, I wear 3 separate bracelets, I don’t add the charms to a single bracelet. I’ve seen people wear like 10+ at a time, which seems a bit much, but I love them. They’re cute and I don’t find they really get in the way or bother me at all.

BurlapnLace:  I started with one and now I have about 20. Lol. So addiciting! I dont usually wear them all at once now. So many. I usually mix them with my Tiffany’s or any other bracelet. I’ve worn just one before. i think they go with anything! i feel like you can wear them however.

Oh I forgot. You can’t add to them but stacking them is so cute. I’m not into pandora either.

BurlapnLace:  I think it would be cool. Just mostly would depend on the person to me.

BurlapnLace:  Definitely not! I got one as a gift for Christmas and I bought the other 2 on my own (and plan to buy many more). As for your bridesman, I don’t think a charm is too girly. It sounds like it’s something he would like – I say go for it!

BurlapnLace: Everybody has to start with just one, I did, now I have 30+.  I usually wear 1-10 at a time in all sorts of combinations with the different metals and charms and beads depending on what I’m wearing that day.  You don’t add more than one charm to each bracelet, or at least I’ve never seen anyone DIY that.  I think if you choose one that is meaningful for your girls or fit their personal style there is nothing wrong with just a single bracelet.  I dont know if you meant for them to be worn at the wedding but in that case I think just one is a good choice as they can be a bit noisy when they at clinking together.  They do have a few that could be good for a man to wear, I like this one http://www.alexandani.com/gifts/for-him/atlantian-wrap.html.

BurlapnLace:  Hi there. I’d get them 3 if you can. One looks a bit barren and the trend is to wear a few at a time. If budget was no concern, 3 each would be my recommendation.

It’s definitely not stupid to get them each one! Alex and Ani bangles are versatile because they can be stacked with other Alex and Anis or with any other type of watch or jewelry. I like to stack 3-4 on the same wrist as my watch. Adding one to your bridesmaids’ collections is a great idea and I don’t think Alex and Ani bracelets are the type of thing people expect to get more than one at a time.

I don’t think getting them each one is stupid at all. Like a pp said…usually everyone starts off with 1, and from there the addiction starts 🙂 An idea I had is (depending on your budget) you can get them a charm one and a beaded one, either in their favorite color, or one of your wedding colors. That way it’s more of a set?

I wear mine with other bracelets, but I only have two Alex and Ani bracelets. I don’t think you need to gift them in multiples. I received each of mine separately, as a gift (but from the same person). They so look nice stacked together, but they aren’t like a Pandora or Links of London bracelet where you acquire more charms on the same band. Because they can be worn as a single bracelet, getting them each one will still be a nice gift!
