    @AndysCraftsNmore:  I love one and two. I personally don’t like chokers on myself, but some people do so maybe give them the option!

    Take your wedding out of it.  What fit’s each person’s personal style? 

    If you are buying them something based on your wedding, and your tastes it isn’t much of a gift for them.

    If you think “wow Mary will absolutely love XXXXXXXX” then get it for her.  If it’s what works best for me/my wedding the gift is for you.

    I like the second sugar skull, but honestly I would just advise to pick whatever each girl’s style is.  I mean, I may like it, but the next person over may like the first one more.

    I do have to say though, I um… the first Calla looks a little too Georgia O’Keefe, and not like a Calla, if you catch my drift.

    I would cringe if I received something with a skull on it, just because it was my bride’s wedding day theme.  That wouldn’t make it a nice gift for me.  Sorry.

    @andielovesj:  +1

    I voted for the lilly because it seems a bit more universal to me and more likely to be worn again.  Of course, if your BMs like skulls and would wear a skull necklace again, then you could do that.  Either way though, I wouldn’t consider this a BM gift since it’s something for your wedding.

    i love your theme (we’re working on something halloween/classy-ish ourselves) 🙂

    and i LOVE calla lilies, however those necklaces/shapes look like vaginas with pearls… lol sorry!!!

    i dont think the sugar skull works with your theme (as much as i know) and the other ones seem too tiny! is there any cute blingy skulls out there?


    also depends on your BMs… they may not want to have skull neckalces lol. a simple pearl drop necklace i think would look great!

    I also thought the calla lilly’s look like vaginas.  If I got that I would never wear it on my own..

    I also am not a skull person (but I know many are)  So if I got that I’d wear it for your wedding and never again.  Are your girls skull people?  If they are, that would be fine, if they aren’t, find something else.

    @AndysCraftsNmore:  I’m offbeat aswell! Rock on! Great to know I’m not thee only one Laughing I really like the 3rd skull necklace! I’m also having calla lillies as my flowers. The bouquests are white cal. lil. and black feathers with black ribbon and lace. My gift to my dazzling dames is this punk rock skull-key necklace. I wish you best of luck and happy planning!
