Hi Weddingbees!! So I am having a lot of trouble figuring out what to get my bridesmaids. Our wedding party is very large, I have nine girls to get presents for. I wanted to get them necklaces to match the bridesmaid dresses. The dresses are Jim Helm, the frosted violet color. I am wearing pearls but, not sure what to get them. I am on a budget too, which makes things even harder!! Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

I hit the Bailey Banks and Biddle going-out-of-business-sale and got my girls real Pearl earrings for $20 a pop. It’s not too bad. But you could follow Miss Cheeseburger’s advice (I think) and get them flip flops to change into and little shawls SO CUTE!

Also thinking of doing handpainted glasses from etsy

I found 7 sets of pearls at a discount jewelry store – $40 total. If you do some research, you may be able to find sets or something.
I got them each a pashmina as well. I found them at Etsy and Pier 1. They ranged in price from $10 to $25 a piece.

I’ll be doing personal gifts for each of my 3 girls… one loves *bux, so I’m getting her a reuseable, adjustable to-go-cup sleeve from an etsy shop. Another really likes purses, so I’m looking at getting her something like a handbag or a jewelry roll (she also has tons of jewelry). The last one will love just about anything I get her, so I’m undecided. BUT, I’m going to try to make them all necklaces to wear on the wedding day: freshwater pearls & green crystals, I think. (Colors are ivory and green.)

Thank you for all of your ideas!! Very helpful! I think with my bridesmaid dresses I am going to go with the friendship pearl from dogeard, and I really love etsy!! I am going to look around for more custom stuff. Thanks Bees!!

Etsy is a fantastic website. There’s always great things on there…
I, too, am in a bind trying to find things to do for my girls. I did happen to come across a Tiffany’s inspired initial necklace…
But this is as far as I’ve gotten. I plan on making them everyday bags that I can customize to fit their personalities, maybe throw in some homemade bath salts and bubble bath with a custom label on it that has our last name on it. Hmmm…
I hope you get some great ideas! I’ll keep thinking :]
