What are you getting your wedding party? Parents? Who else to buy gifts for?
My bridesmaids aren’t wearing necklaces so really trying to figure out what to buy them. The age of my girls are 33. 30. 28. 14 and 13. HELP!
Not sure what to buy our parents. Who else do we buy for?

@blessings: I’m buying my girls earrings and a clutch–which I will fill with little cosmetic items like a nail polish and a lip gloss or something.
I’m not sure what to get my parents. I am thinkin of maybe buying our Moms a piece of jewelry–perhaps an infinity bracelet or something. Dads are hard, so I’m not sure.
And you should also get something for your flower girls/ring bearers/groomsmen/anyone else in your bridal party.
Not sure what we’re getting our Groomsmen yet, but I’m thinking of buying the flower girls an inexpensive pair of pearl earrings/necklace and a little tote with their name on it–which I’ll fill with coloring books and other fun little things.

For my BMs, we are getting their jewelry (earrings and bracelets), a clutch purse, a monogram embroidered hanky and I’m taking them to get nails done before the rehearsal.
For the Groomsmen and ushers, we are getting ties, socks, an engraved zippo lighter and a couple of cigars.
For our Ring Bearer (3), we wanted to get a keepsake as well as something fun. We got a sterling silver yo-yo engraved with his monogram on one side and our wedding date on the other side. We also got him a personalized super hero costume complete with cape, mask and wrist guards. (he’s gonna flip!)
For our FGs (5, 7, 9), we are getting a little purse filled with nail polish, lip gloss and a compact mirror engraved with their monogram and our wedding date.
We are getting hankies embroidered with personal, sappy messages for all of our parents. Additionally, we are getting MOB and MOG personalized jewelry for our moms and pocketwatches engraved with monograms for our dads.
Hope this helps!

For my BMs: Necklace to wear at the wedding, satin robe with their name embroidered on the back, wire name hanger and I’m paying for hair/makeup.
For Groomsmen & Ushers: Fiance is still undecided but some are getting gift certifcates for Reds games, one is getting musical type stuff. He’s trying to get them things they will like.
For the Ring Bearer: Not sure yet. He’s the youngest of 3 and I don’t want the others to feel left out. I still have to talk to SIL and see what she thinks.
For the Flower Girl: She is my daughter (7) and her pick was a cute necklace to wear at the wedding (probably from Claires) and this huge pack of My Little Ponies she has been begging for. lol
Since we are paying for our wedding we are getting gifts on the smaller side for our parents. Not sure what we will get his parents or my dad and his fiance. Leaning toward monogrammed cufflinks for my dad since he wears a suit everyday. I got my mom and stepdad a ipad for a combined, birthday/mothers day/fathers day/shower/wedding gift. 🙂 I’ll be racking my brain the next few weeks for gifts for the parents.
