A robe: Meh, I’d never use it. especially if it was personalized. I don’t need a robe with my name on it, or “bridesmaid” or anything else. Silky robes aren’t really that practical, they don’t absorb water and if I’m just getting dressed, I’m not going to wear a robe from getting out of the shower to the point of dressing. (Seriously, please don’t put their “title” on anything.. That ruins the “wearability” of it.)

The bracelet: Sweet, but not my style so I wouldn’t wear that particular one, but I’d wear a bracelet from a bridesmaid gift.

Makeup: I’m 50/50 on this. Makeup is pretty personal to me and I don’t like Sephora, so I probably wouldn’t use it. However, if your girls are into Sephora and/or those particular colors, I say go for it. I probably wouldn’t use either of your example (chosen?) palettes.

Hangers: Not a fan of personalized hangers, but I’d probably put a jacket or coat on it and then forget it was personalized til I needed the coat.

The robes are nice but they might not want “bridesmaid” “maid of honor” on them if they wear them after the wedding.

It all sounds good to me! I think you are spending enough. I think you should spend what you can easily afford and get your girls

things they all can use and will enjoy.

@Nickig_4:  I like everything but the bracelets. I think what you’ve gotten them is plenty. A clutch isn’t something they’d be able to use anyway because they’ll have bouquets and be dancing all night.

@Nickig_4:  Im sorry but everything but the makeup sounds like props for your wedding and photos rather than “gifts” for your BM’s. I am not a fan of same same gifts. I mean you wouldn’t buy them the exact same thing for their birthday right. Shop for gifts like you are shopping for their birthday because the gift should be about them and not about you or your wedding.

@Nickig_4:  I think rather then there title on the back, just so they can wear it again I would put their names on the back and yours BRIDE i think them all in the blue it will tie them togeter enough that way its less propy like one girl said and more like something speical for them b.c. they are very pretty 

 

i love those bracelets i have one my self and what girl does not like make up it will be fun for the slumbber party 😛

No wire hangerrrrrrs!!!

I am sorry; I could not resist Embarassed

 

I like the bracelet the most. I would only get them make-up pallettes if I knew what colours they use. For example, I do not use browns.

I like the robes, but leave them blank. No “bridesmaid” or anything.

Bracelet is ok.

I like the second makeup palette. I would wear it a lot. But not the first one.

The hanger is ok. I can always use more hangers but the fact that it’s personalized doesn’t really matter to me.

A clutch would be nice if it were usable. Some of those ones you see on here are pretty for pictures, but I wouldn’t use them IRL. If you decide to go this route, look for something that has a wrist strap and some slots for credit cards, etc. AKA: a wristlet

@j_jaye:  +1

The attendants’ gifts should be to thank them, not to use for your day. For instance, we got all the maids different Kate Spade cosmetic bags and the men personalized toiletry kits from etsy (different gifts for best man and moh). If I decide I want all the girls to wear the same headband or hairband or something, that will be something additional I get them that won’t be part of their gift because it’s essentially part of their “costume” for the day. If they choose to wear it again, that’s awesome, but that won’t be my intent in giving it to them.

Very cute ideas!  I think it’s nice to have your gifts tie in with the wedding because each time they use them they will think of the special day!  

For the robes, personally, I would either not personalize them or go with their names.  Not “bridesmaid” or “maid of honor” etc.  

I love the personalized hangers (again with names, not titles)!  I’ve been kicking around that idea for my own BM gifts. 

I also think the makeup palettes are a nice gesture.  

As for the bracelet, if your MOH likes that style of jewelry then go ahead!  If it doesn’t look like something she would typically wear, then I would keep looking for something that she would really love.

I love your ideas. I get what PP are saying about the robes being customized but they would be a nice, fun momento of the wedding IMO.
