I am feeling REALLY guilty.
Our wedding budet is ~$3,000-$5,000.
We really can’t afford to spend much on our attendants because we have SEVEN apeice.
He has a HUGE group of friends and absolutely cannot pick and choose. Ugh.. I had a hard time coming up with 7 people, LOL.
Anyway, we’re on a tight budget to begin with and with so many people, we can’t afford to spend much more than $10-$20 (preferably closer to $10)
I am feeling SOOO bad about this when I read others’ posts about these kick-butt gifts they are getting 🙁
What can I do for them to let them know we really do care, just don’t have a lot of money??

We have the same budget, and I have 7bms too! I’m getting my girls totes from the knot they’re only 5.99 when they’re on sale and you can personalize them!They’re not on sale right now, but they’re on sale pretty much every other week so just check everyday like I did!
SUPER CUTE. I’m just going to put a few inexpensive things inside like lip gloss from eyeslipsface.com ($1 each) a note from me thanking them for being in the wedding maybe a cute little compact (I found some on amazon for super cheap like $1 each)

Those are TOO cute!
What a great idea. I will definitely check back for them to be on sale, thanks.
As I was thinking about everything, I decided to order earrings from etsy.com for each bridesmaid as well. They are super cheap and I will ask them to wear them the day of the wedding. I will just put them inside the tote.
The best thing is I’m getting each one earrings that have to do w/ something she loves. (Beautiful, vintage red bird earrings for the St. Louis Cardinals fan, some cute fish for the fishin’ and huntin’ gal, etc..)

That’s such a sweet idea! I really wanted to get my girls some cute inexpensive jewelry, but one girl breaks out from anything that isn’t real silver or gold and I can’t afford that and I didn’t want to leave her out either.. so lip gloss and compacts it is haha!

Those are great, inexpensive ideas! I think what matters most is that you put some thought into it.

I got my Maid/Matron of Honor a more pricey gift but I found great necklaces on Overstock.com for $12 a peice (and free shipping) and a pair of Old Navy Flip Flops for 2 pairs for $5!
Not sure what we are doing about the guys yet. Probably a flask.
