My wedding is still a year away, but I’m always hunting for good bargains and deals. I’m having 4 on my side, and he has 4 on his side, plus one usher, and two flower girls. I’d like to spend no more than $50 on each person for a gift (small budget wedding). So roughly $400 + the flower girls… is this too little?
I want to have all the girl’s hair and makeup done in the hotel. So dress, shoes, hair makeup will run roughly $300 – $350 for each of them… is my gift budget too small? I’m thinking it is.

@Daenaria727: If you’re requiring them to have hair and makeup, you should pay for it.
I think bridal party gifts can totally be done for $50 each – just watch for deals.

If you require that they have hair and makeup done, you should pay for it. (I’m not requiring so they are paying).

@Daenaria727: I think it depends on whether you’re making them pay for professional hair and make up. If you’re letting your girls do it themselves then I’d say your budget is fine. If not, I’d try and stretch to cover that cost instead of a gift since iit’s an unecessary expense.
