    @EmilyJoy:  While I have no idea how much you actually spent, it seems like more than enough. While I would be very happy to accept this, I would almost feel a little overwhelmed and maybe even feel the need to increase my gift amount. But, I also feel like it depends on your circle of friends. I am not saying this as a negative, just how I might feel. If this is the norm, then all will be well and good. 

    ETA: Regardless of what I think, I am sure your BMs will be very happy and pleased to receive these gifts.

    @EmilyJoy:  I am sure they will love their gifts, but it does seem a bit excessive to me. I don’t travel in your social circle though, so maybe you normally exchange this type of gift.

    I agree that I think they are a bit much honestly. I’d feel guilty getting gifts like that for being in a wedding, and being a practical person if you were going to spend that much on me I’d just prefer you pay for my dress. That’s just me though.

    Sounds like you put a lot of thought and consideration into the gifts and I’m sure they will love it! I also like how you gave each girl a gift you thought she would like and not identical to the others. I’m curious if you don’t mind sharing how much you spent on each girl?

    I think this is definitely enough! I spent quite a bit on each of my girls and nobody was overwhelmed. At least not for my social circle or area. I love your gifts!

    @EmilyJoy:  Jeepers, how much did you spend per girl! If this is normal for your circles is sounds great but this would be way more than any bride would ever give their bridesmaids in my city, lol. Normally you just get jewellery for the wedding here – I’m considered odd because I’m getting them something personal!

    honestly – you know your BMs best and it seems like the gifts are tailored to their liking.

    You probably know better than us.  Trust your gut

    I don’t think you got them enough stuff.
