I am in my last week of planning and I can’t stop stressing about the BM gifts. So far I have gotten them a really cute cork clutch (our wedding is vineyard themed), beautiful crystal drop earrings from Etsy, also sterling bow bracelets with their initial, Pj’s for night before, and a tube dress to get ready in day of. Also, my mom has made them a custom shoe bag, dress bag, and name wire hangers. The BM dresses were about 220 before alterations so im guessing each of them spent about 300 on dresses and I did not require special shoes because the dresses are long. I would have gotten them individual gifts but some of the girls are a little jealous of each other already so I though sticking with the same gifts would be safer. Do you guys think I am in the clear????

@conzy: I would be incredibly happy to recieve those gifts! I got all of my girls the same things so there wouldn’t be anyone feeling like they got shafted. I did get a little something extra for my sister (MOH) and my niece (because she’s my niece).

I think those are wonderful gifts! And you’re very generous! I’m sure they will love what you’re giving.
I am giving my bridesmaids a few gifts as well but I spread the gift giving out (hopefully they remember that I got more than one gift for them and don’t feel “cheated” at the end lol). I gave them the wire name hangers at my shower, I got personalized wine glasses for the bachelorette party, and silver bracelets with an infinity symbol charm that i’m giving them at the rehearsal dinner. I got my MOH an extra gift, a picture frame with both our names on it and a personalized message thanking her for being my MOH. When I give her the frame i’m putting in a pic of us together as little kids (we are cousins), and I’ll be giving her a nice pic of us at the wedding to put in the frame after.
