Number 1: Jewelry…like this necklace for the wedding day
Number 2: A make up bag from etsy. They would each be different and suit the individual style of each bridesmaid…but they WOULD NOT have their name on them.
and this is the bridesmaid dress we picked!
Thanks in advance for your help! The shoes will be silver.

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.

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.
