I think that the thought behind your gift is great. Persoanlly, I wouldn’t actually wear that on my wedding day, but it is a gift I would enjoy receiving

I think this is an amazing idea for a gift.  It is very thoughful.  If I were to receive a gift like that as a bridesmaid I would be thrilled.

I would probably be more excited about the robe and the picture, as I’m not a jewelry person. Thoughtful though!

@SloaneRose:  I’m very close to my grandmother. If a friend of mine gave me something that belonged to their grandparent, I would feel very honored. I think this is one of the most thoughtful gifts I’ve seen on here. While I would likely not wear it on my own wedding day (I’d probably wear something that belonged to my grandmom, not my friend’s!), I would certainly treasure it.

I think it is very thoughtful, but they won’t have the same emotional pull toward your grandmother’s handkerchief, or your wedding dress. I doubt any of them would end up wearing them as necklaces on their wedding day, but who knows. Would be a good bouquet charm or something. Though, again, people would probably use something more sentimental to their own family.

I would really love it 🙂 It’s the first time I see a bride really doing something thoughtful for their BM. If I would to receive it i will def. put it in my bouquet at my wedding or wear it even 🙂 Amazing idea

@SloaneRose:  the gift sounds great.  only thing- they might really like it as a gift and might not want to use it in their own wedding or might forget.  so if I were you, i’d give it, but never ask them if they used it in their wedding or don’t remind them to- b/c the gift is a gift and they can like it and appreciate it w/o making it a part of their future weddings.  actually, it’s best to leave that part out when you give it to them- just explain the old, new, borrowed, blue- but probably don’t even suggest they should use it in their weddings.  They can if they want, but it’s nice and a gift without that push/suggestions.
