Just looking for a little feedback, hive! My budget is about $45 dollars per girl in the wedding including personal attendants. I have all the earrings bought that are matching and then I was going to pay for pedicures for everyone. It would be $25 a person (ten people) plus I would handle the tip.
Does this seem like enough or should I personalize it more with more smaller gifts? If you think I should personalize it more, what would you suggest?
What did you get YOUR bridal party (guys included)?

I think that’s fine. I’m on a tight budget too. I’ve got 5 BM’s.
What I’m doing is getting everyone a pair of earings or bracelet havn’t decided yet. And I’ve already started making each girl a gift basket of things they might need on the wedding day such as: advil, tide stain remover marker, small lint roller (since they’re wearing black dresses) mints, lip gloss, hand cream, small perfume, crest white strips, some basic black flip flops in case they’re feet might hurt later that night, small deodorant, hair ties, bobby pins, mini can of hairspray, blistex chap stick, nail file, a pair of those cushion things you can put in your high heels, q-tips, and a few other small things. I found most of it in the travel section at walmart and target. It did add up in the end but I thought it would be a nice surprise the morning of when all my girls got there. I’m going to put a little tag on the front of each basket saying Bridesmaid survival kit “Thanks for being my bridesmaid I couldn’t have survived it without you” I just hope they llike it 🙂

I have 3 BMs and I’m puting together a survival kit too. I’m also including a hoodie & tote (both personalized) & basic black flip flops because I’m know they’ll want to have comfy shoes for the dancing. The totes were $25 for all 3, I haven’t gotten the sweaters but I’m looking at walmart and they say $10 each & I’m getting the flip flops from old navy (they have a buy 2 get them for $5 thing going on). So I’m spending about the same as you for my bridesmaids. I have to run it by the FI but I was thinking of getting the GM a personalized flask. We’ll see if that goes through.
