    I like the necklace.  Very pretty.

    I think both are way fun choices!! I am actually doing the same thing for my girls. I can’t afford to spend a lot though, so I am going to get them matching necklaces for the wedding and get them cheaper makeup bags, so I can afford to do both. I think you’d be good with either choice though!

    Personally I’d want the necklace. The bags are super cute but I have SO many and I wouldn’t necessarily use it for anything important. The necklace would be something I could wear again and that would remind me of being in the wedding. I’ve been in several weddings and even though jewelry is the “typical” gift I always prefer it to other items like bags, wine glasses, vases, etc that I never seem to get much use out of.

    *I got a gardening kit once that while unique and special it has remained shoved in my closet taking up space.

    That is a great necklace. I like that way better than any of the necklaces I’ve gotten for being a bridesmaid!

    Personally, I’m a fan of the gift being something that’s not for the wedding – matching necklaces are tough, because your girls most likely have different sense of style! That said, I love little bags, and would definitely choose that option. 🙂

    ETA: That dress is great! Definitely one of the less “bridesmaid-y” dresses I’ve seen!

    i would prefer the bags. yes, i have a few little bags already, but i always need them for travel and as they get gross i like to switch them out. i wouldn’t get much use out of the necklace.

    The necklace is nice if you think it’s their style and they would wear it again.  I LOVE your BM dress!  Where did you find it?

    I would very much prefer the bags.

    I’ll be honest, although that necklace is very cute, I’d never wear it after your wedding day.  I don’t change my jewelery often and when it do, it is to very simple, classic pieces and that neckalce just isn’t my style.  DH is really the only person I trust to buy my jewelery (although my mom does well every once in a while).

    While yes, I do have lots of other make-up / trinket / storage bags, who can’t use another one??  I always have more things I need to organize and sort and store.  Plus, the bags are really cute!

    I think the necklace matches the dress perfectly! That being said, after the wedding, i probably wouldn’t wear the necklace again.  It’s pretty but not my style. I can always use more makeup bags (because I always buy more makeup). I also like that the bags would be more personalized to each of your bridesmaid’s individually.

    Both ideas are great, but I would probably like the necklace more. Mostly because I think it’s beautiful and very much my style 😉

    I would prefer the bags since it would be easier to cater to each lady’s personal taste, which could be hit or miss with a piece of jewellery.
