Favorite: I got a nice pashmina that I can wear to fancy events. It’s not smething I would have spent money on myself, and I do use it pretty much every time I go to a formal event.

Least favorite: Pretty much every piece of jewelry I’ve received as a Bridesmaid or Best Man I have never worn. I am picky about my jewelry.

I think what I would really love is a gift certificsate somewhere, like a spa!

Least favorite – all jewelry… like PP I am picky when it comes to that!

I bought my girls coach purses and am filling them with hair products and makeup I know they use (their specific shampoo/conditioners, MAC compacts, eyeshadows, Moroccan oil, etc), cute tweezers, nail polishes, fav candies, their signature scent perfume, swarovski cyrstal bracelet (not to wear at wedding), mini day of emergency kit, bottle of their fav booze.  I’m sure they will love it!!  I know I would if I was on the receiving end!

  • Wedding: September 2013

Favorite: I had a bride that gave us tons of gifts, ranging from our jewelry and day-of emergency items (e.g., tide pens and kleenex) to candles and other home items. But the one item I’ve used time and time again were the “Footzyrolls” – rollable ballet flats. I wore them the night of her wedding after my heels started killing me and at tons of events since then. Much cutter than flip flops for a “my heels are killing me” situation. I’m going to get these for my girls, in addition to other items: http://www.footzyfolds.com/lt-span-style-quot-display-none-quot-gt-a-lt-span-gt-silver-footzyrolls.html

Worst: Not getting one!

Favorite:  Tie for (1)  Bride paying for the bridesmaid dress.  It was hideous and the only time I wore it again was at a Halloween party.  I was SO GLAD I didn’t have to pay for it!  (2) Vineyard Vines tote bag

Least Favorite: Really ugly flip flops!

@WhiskeyEverAfter:  Ooooh good post! And you have fantastic gift ideas!


 Least favorite: wine glass engraved with the bride and groom’s name and wedding date. Haven’t touched it since the wedding over a year ago.


Favorite: clutch from Coach. I am notoriously cheap when it comes to buying brand name stuff so although I never would have bought one for myself I had always wanted one!
