It seems like all of this stuff is to be used on the day of the wedding. Is there anything that you could get that they could use after?

It’s all great but it’s all really a gift for you and your pics.  I would get them something personal for after the wedding.

From what I’ve heard on the Bee buying them things that they’ll use in the wedding doesn’t really count for their gifts. If you’re going to do what you’ve listed I would suggest that you make their hangers their names and not “bridesmaid” so that it’s not as limited for use?

I’m doing what you’re doing (jewelry, hair/makeup and hanger) and then buying them each individual gifts. I’m thinking clutches or wristlets that match their personalities.

But you know your girls best so if you think they’ll be happy with that than go for it!!!

On the hanger, not sure how much use they can get out of it even if it has their name on it (other than just using it as a regular hanger in the closet). I think they’re cute for the photos but not much else.

I bought silk robes that had their first initial monogrammed into them so they can rewear them and again and have other uses than just on my wedding day. I know I wouldn’t want to always wear a robe that said bridesmaid.

@SarahMitchell:  Cute idea!  Like all the things you’ve selected.  What shop are the earring/necklace set from?  So cute!  I’m thinking along the same lines as you for gifts plus something small/personal for them as well.

I’m giving a makeup clutch that has their first initial embroidered on them (5 DOLLARS through David’s Bridal and they look great.  Amazing deal.)

Inside the clutches is a mini bottle of Barefoot Moscato and since they all have the bracelets, a Pandora bead, then a few Godiva truffles in each bag.  I wanted them to have a jewelry item that reminded them of the wedding, but not something directly related that they could wear again 🙂

I like those! I’ve gotten jewlerly I’ve worn on the wedding day twice as gifts, and I’ve been happy with that. They can always wear them again!

All pretty, but not really a gift for the bridesmaids.
