I’m a teacher and I’m on summer break so I’ve gone full-force into wedding planning so please excuse how involved I’m about to get on the Bee!
Here’s my question: How much is an appropriate amount to spend on my BM’s gifts? What should I give them?
A little info:
They all have different styles of the same eggplant silk chiffon dresses from J.Crew and several of the styles won’t accommodate a necklace (like this one and the one sholder dress)
I have 5 BM’s of all shapes and sizes, styles, and ages (14-23).
What do you guys think? What did/are you doing for your girls?

I am spending about $75 on each girl.
I got them monogrammed tote bags and I’m filling them with:
– Slippers for the day we get ready
– Cute drink tumbers (the kind with the lid and straw)
– Swarovski-strassed flip flops (to change into for dancing)
– Dangly chandelier earrings to wear for the wedding.
If you can’t do necklaces, you can do earrings and a bracelet, or do a non-jewlery gift. You could always pay for their hair & makeup on the day of too.

I am spending about $200 on each girl, but am having a destination wedding so that amps up the cost a little bit. I would definitely get them earrings and or a bracelet since a necklace is out. Maybe a custom bridesmaids clutch from etsy or a monogrammed pashmina?

I got my girls robes for $5 each on cottonage.com. They also have other great gift ideas on there. They are the basic white robes. I plan on purchasing iron on rhinestone letters and putting their names on the back.
