    I bought necklaces from Etsy, each had a stone and a little tag hanging with their initial. I’m pretty sure they still wear them. I also gave them a lot of ther stuff with their gift though. I only had three so I had a decent budget and I collected things over the course of a year.

    @cestvrai:  

    Man I feel selfish picking that first one, but I got my girls a set, all handmade after I picked out the design, but I do feel it can be worn again.

    Kind of between the last two. I will request silver rather than gold metal tones. I don’t care if it’s old, new, delicate, flashy, cheap, expensive, etc. They are each so unique and I love that about them

    @cestvrai:  All my girls are wearing a black short dress of their choosing. Once I see all the dresses, I am going to buy each girl a pair of earrings that goes with their style. Obviously, I don’t care at all about anyone matching. They can wear the earrings I give them or their own pair to the wedding.

    I’m also giving a pashmina and paying for their hair.

    I found earrings on clearance that matched the dress so I bought them.  They were $6 each so if the girls don’t want to wear them it’s no problem.  I sent a picture and they all liked them.  If they want to wear any additional jewelry they can wear whatever they want.

    I’m including bracelete in their gifts, but they don’t have to wear them for the wedding.  They can if they want to but that’s up to them.  I just thought they were cool and would be a nice gift.  They can wear whatever they want.  At this point in the planning I have much more important things to worry about.

    I told them to wear whatever jewelry and shoes they wanted (I requested silver shoes, but I believe everyone was already planning on that)

    They wore whatever they wanted.  Honestly, it just isn’t something I cared about.

    @cestvrai:  I bought a simple silver heart bracelet for each girl from Etsy. Aside from that, I don’t really care what they wear.

    I voted for jewelry that matched the wedding, but I also definitely took into account her personal style. I only had a MoH so I bought (with her input) a Kate Spade necklace.

    Bah, they can wear whatever they want. I let them pick out their dresses (guidline? little black dress. That’s it) so I can’t pick their jewelry for them.

    Besides, it’s a well-known fact that I have terrible taste in jewelry.
    So I guess I’m doing them a favor haha

    @cestvrai:  I’m just telling them that I want gold-toned jewelry. Doesn’t have to be real gold, of course, just yellow toned metal. I have zero preferences as far as pendants or stones. As long as it’s not a giant gold Flava Flav clock, I think we’re ok.

    @cestvrai:  My wedding colors are sapphire blue and fuchsia.  The girls’ dresses are blue and I bought them a fuchsia faux pearl jewelry set (necklace, earrings, and bracelet) off a seller on Etsy.  They were much nicer than I expected for the price!  I bought both flower girls jewelry set from the same seller (the FG’s will have fuchsia dresses and ivory jewelry).

    @cestvrai:  I didn’t dictate anything about what my bridesmaids wore…

    I originally wanted mismatched dresses (I planned on telling them a color, fabric, and length, and letting them each choose any dress they liked!). However, they all fell in love with the SAME dress, in a totally different color than I had in mind (I wanted pastels, they fell in love with BRIGHT cobalt blue). But they all looked soo good in the blue that I changed my whole wedding color scheme for them.

    I didn’t care at all about shoes or necklaces.. I wanted them to be comfortable, and to show off their unique styles!  But they discussed amongst themselves and decided on strappy silver heels and some kind of rhinestone necklace. All mismatched, but within guidelines… they were BEAUTIFUL.

    I couldn’t be more happy with letting my girls decide their whole look. 🙂

     

    Can’t see their necklaces, sadly, but don’t they look AWESOME!?
