how cheap?

Red Envelope .com has tons of gifts. I use it all of the time for hard to buy for people. I’m probably going to go with the personalized compacts, they are like 30 bucks a piece.

I kinda went a little overboard but I spoiled mine…

Coach outlet – got them little wristlets/clutches (it had a wristlet portion that could snap on and off so they could either use it as a wristlet or as a clutch) to hold their stuff for day of – $35 

Jewelry set for the day of – invididual earrings, necklace and bracelet from http://www.kurrently.net/ all for only $25 for all three things

here’s a shot of one of my bridesmaids and her earrings/necklace:

Towel wraps (each girl got a different color to match with her taste/personality) for all of us to wear when getting ready (I had an airbrush makeup artist who offered to airbrush in any tan lines) from Target  – here’s two of my bms in their towel wraps – $12 each:

Reef flipflops in my wedding colors for the girls to change into and wear during the reception – on sale with a coupon to boot for only $15 each:

and then, I saw these denim tote bags at Bath & Body Works on clearance for only $1.25 each and bought crystal apliques at Jo Ann Fabrics ($1 each) and put all of their gifts inside 

total – about $100 per girl  (I’m including the $5 tank tops that I bought from Old Navy and the $3 crystal "Bridesmaid" iron-on that I bought and gave the girls to wear during the bachelorette party)

I got my girls a wristlet to match the wedding colors at http://www.augustlately.com  .  she is willing to change up the colors as well….I liked one pattern, but wanted a different solid with it, and she was more than willing to oblige.  I think they were around $30ish.

i’m giving my gals 1154 lill bags (http://www.1154lillstudio.com) which i can customize to their liking and pashminas to match…i’ll prob spend about $60 per person.  Another site that i use ALL THE TIME is http://www.behandpicked.com.  They have stores in SC and their website hosts all the same kind of stuff.   The quality of their monogrammed jewelry is excellent…

I bought my BM’s pewter monogrammed hooks from Pottery Barn and plan on getting them plush white robes with their monogram in their favorite colors. (But I’m waiting for the after Christmas sale to order them). I’m also looking to add in Old Navy Flip Flops costing a whopping $2! So all in all I’m looking to spend about $70 a person…x that by 7!

Hi! I’m getting my girls inexpensive (but really nice actually) cardigans from JCPenny.com. I’m then having their initial monogramed on them. They’ll be able to wear them at our March ’08 wedding and then hopefully use them again. Total cost… $24 each. Woohoo!

I was at Target yesterday and found the softest plush robes (if I"m not mistaken it’s by Gillian & O’Malley) for $ 19.99. They come in several colors. I can’t find them online though, but if you’re thinking of getting robes, check them out.

For everyone out there who is artistic or crafty, consider this for bridesmaid gifts:

I have one of their mirrors and I love it.  It is really cheap and totally customizeable.  You can design it yourself with anything you want!
I have been feeling up for doing something crafty for my wedding, so I think this is one of the things I’m going to do.  
Here is what I’m thinking for gifts:
Mirror -$6.50
Scarves- $5
Henry Bendell candle- $10
makeup case (make myself) – $10ish probably
So I’m looking at less than $35 a gift and getting them four cute things.

You might try Affordable Dream Weddings (http://www.adweddings.com). They have very reasonable prices and 10% off everything. Engraving/personalization is free.

I got my BMs matching earring and necklace sets with personalized jewelry rolls from there. I also got my FG a cute tote from there as well. HTH!
