I’d give them gifts since they did agree to be in the wedding party and they spent the money for the dress, but I would probably just buy them something generic and not invest a lot of time. Maybe that is passive aggressive, but I don’t think they deserve that much of your time.
I would buy or make a gift for your friend who helped you out.

I’d give them gifts as well – they’re still your bridesmaids, and they still spent the money to buy their dresses and shoes.  Sometimes younger bridesmaids don’t really understand what it actually means to be a bridesmaid – not that there’s a specific job title or anything but GENERALLY speaking, they should help/plan showers, parties, etc.  I was maid of honor when my best friend got married at 23 also, and I had NO CLUE (and i was broke).  Looking back now, I probably wasn’t the best bridesmaid, let alone maid of honor, and she’s been an amazing matron of honor to me….. so yeah, give them the gifts.  🙂

I would give something super generic! And make something personalized for the friend that is helping. But that’s just me!
