    idk why anyone would be offended or anything, but i think it’s kind of unnecessary except for the people that planned it

    I think it’s cute! I can think of no occasions when I would be offended or upset to receive a mini alcohol! Maybe sunscreen if it’s a sunny location?

    ETA: You sound like a super awesome bride. Your girls will totally feel special that you’re thinking of them as people and friends and not manequins!

    Everyone is coming from out of town for my party, so I paid for the limo, kind of as a thank you and to lower the expense for everone else. I think its great if you want to give them a little gift and help cut costs

    I don’t think anyone will turn down the chocolates, but I also wouldn’t expect people to be really blown away by that.  It’s a very small gift.  If you’re trying to think of a way to make them feel special, I’m not sure that’s the way to go.

    @Shkragoldfish:  “I’d also like to give something little to each of my friends for attending because they mean so much to me and I really appreciate them coming.”

    Personally, I wouldn’t interpret a box of chocolates as “I mean a lot to you and you really appreciate me coming.”  That is what I meant.

    Would I like a box of chocolates?  Sure!  Is it appropriate for the bride to give gifts at her bachelorette party?  I don’t know.  I don’t think anyone will care either way.  It’s not traditional, but I don’t see a problem with it.

    Honestly, just hearing the bride verbally say that it means a lot that I came and she really appreciates it would have a lot more meaning to me than anything else.  If you want to do something else, then I’d write that sentiment down and give it to each girl with or without the chocolates.
