Write a card saying how thankful you are that they’re a part of your day too (you may have been planning that anyway but….figured I’d throw it out there just in case)

 

Personally I’d also gift them a picture of them after you wedding, maybe write this in the card? Or give them a frame?

I don’t think the make-up, earrings, and necklace can be considered a gift because really they are for your vision for your wedding.  However, it sounds like you’ve given other gifts along the way so I don’t think you need to do anything much more.

Personally, I would get each girl one more little thing to say thank you (in addition to a nice thank you).  A picture frame with you and her, a bottle of wine, some chocolates, flowers, small blanket, game, or cute scarf.  It doesn’t need to be anything fancy and I probably wouldn’t spend more than $15 per girl.

@nansky85:  that is definitely plenty! I am spending no where as close to what you are spending. I just cant do it.  I would if i could but I cant.  I am paying for their hair to be professionally done and a gift from somewhere personal to them.  It pretty much comes to $55-$75 each for my 6 girls.  I am spending $150 on my MOH though.

I think the gifts at the bachlorette party were great! I would still give them a thank you card day of and i agree with the PP about maybe framing a picture of you guys afterward! But I think you’ve been great to them so far!! I don’t think you need to buy anything else. 🙂

I think that is very nice of you. I would prefer to have the bride pay for hair and or make up than to give me a gift I may or may not want. Being a bridesmaid can be very expensive and I think the brides sometimes overlook that.
