You’re a great friend! I also have 5 bridesmaids. I’m paying for their dresses, hair & makeup, and for their gifts I had silk custom robes made for each of them and got each a similar, but slightly unique pair of earrings at tejani.com (great site!) to wear the day-of.

I think you’ve done plenty! Pour yourself a glass of wine and call it a day! 🙂

That seems excessive for bridesmaids gifts! So much $$$$! 

Definitely great gifts tho!

Tbmtb:  Very nice gifts, your BM’s will be very thankful! I like the different kit ideas for each girl and may think of doing that too.

When I asked my 2 girls, I gave them a card, philosophy lip gloss, and essie nail polish in the blue that was aiming for.

For their gifts, I got them a necklace and earrings to wear the day of (and after, as they’re pearls). My MOH (sister) got nesting pouches from Better Life Bags, and my BM (FSIL) got a Coach wristlet. I plan to fill these things with smaller items – that are still TBD. I may also pay for their hair, but that is also undecided.

I got them each something different for a bag, as my sister has a TON of wristlets, and I thought the Better Life Bags would be something different. However, she just bought a new Kate Spade purse, so my original idea of getting them something from Kate Spade would have worked well – but the BLB will be a good thing too – since she can use them to put whatever she wants in them. I still have some time though. 🙂

Those are AMAZING gifts. Wish I was one of your bridesmaids! 😛

I have bought their dresses, and their hair & makeup are covered as well. I just plan on getting them  bridesmaid tanks to get ready in the day of, and maybe some sort of gift set from BBW or VS. My wedding is on a super tight budget so that’s about all I can do. 🙂

I don’t have much to spend… so my gifts aren’t as elaborate.

I bought these jewelery sets on groupon for $5 

I’m going to get each of them these robes from walmart to wear while getting ready (in purple). If I can, I might have my grandma embroider their name or initial onto them. $15 

I also plan on ordering them a little clutch from etsy. $22

amberback:  AGHH!!  Thank God for you posting those Walmart robes!!  I don’t even care about embroidery anymore, I just wanted cute geting ready robes and a white one for me.  I didn’t want to pay much more than $15 for them.  This is GREAT!!

BurlapnLace:  you’re welcome! I haven’t ordered yet but i did see some photos of them on a wedding blog. They look good and great for a summer wedding.  I think I’m going to order a few sizes and a white AND purple one for me since I’m slightly worried the white might be too sheer? Should be able to easily return to the store so no problem ordering more than I need.

amberback:  Yeah, they’re good like that.  There’s a Walmart literally within walking distance to my house so I’m goign to see if they have them in store first.  I’ll let you know if they’re flimsy!

I have time, but so far I have Vera Bradley ditty bags and monogrammed hoodies. The bag is plastic lined and super practical, and way more universal than a pocketbook IMO. I’m picky about bags to carry, but this should be good for wet items, travel, beach, gym, whatever. The hoodies I got cheap on etsy from a reputable seller and I’m very happy with them. I’m thinking maybe a piece of jewelry and a card and I’ll be set.
