- Wedding: March 2013
My Fiance and I are each only having one attendant (our siblings). Since mine is my sister, I am ok with spending a bit more on her gift. I plan to buy her dress ($300), hair and makeup ($75ish) but not shoes or jewelery (Id like her to wear whatever she is comfortable in.
She does not expect me to pay for all of this, however I have been a bm many times and know how expensive it can be. When I was in her wedding she helped pay for the cost of the dress and got me a gift of around $50ish. I am not saying this because I am concerned about parity (we married at different ages and financial situations). I only mention it because I do not want her to feel horribly uncomfortable.
I would like to buy her either a sterling silver necklace from Tiffanys (~$200) or some nice real gold studs and perhaps something else. I am thinking of spending in the $200-250 range regardless of what I buy.
Is this reasonable? If you recieved this gift would you be touched or feel uncomfortable? Do you have better suggestions for me? I want to pick something out ASAP
