    The necklaces are just fine.

    Your fiancee’s sister and friend didn’t agree to be your bridesmaids for the gifts. They aren’t in for what you’ll give them. 

    Besides, brides on Weddingbee do a lot of different things when it comes to weddings. A lot of them may think giving bridesmaids more than one gift is the right thing to do, but that doesn’t mean it is. It’s just one of many options. 

    You’re showing them appreciation in a nice way, and that’s what matters.

    I don’t particularly like the necklace but giving the necklace as a BM is fine in my opinion. I am giving my BMs a ThirtyOne bag but I have 4 BMs and the bags were $35+tax and shipping each. I originally was trying to give them shoes to wear the day but I purchased them online and then the ladies couldn’t fit the shoes even thought I purchased them in their sizes. So I went another route.

    @DanceAwayDarling:  If I were only able to choose one gift for my bridesmaids, I would probably go with a piece of fine jewellery. I would probably add some stuff to be given alongside the necklace you posted, but that’s just me and you know your girls best anyway.

    I’m not a fan of the necklace, but I also don’t think brides HAVE to give presents to bridesmaids. I wouldn’t think of that necklace as a gift (it’s a very specific look that I wouldn’t expect the girls to want to wear again- I’m guessing you have a rabbit theme to your wedding?), but giving a heartfelt card or note along with it is fine or an inexpensive (framed picture) works too.

    Those are very cute. I’m sure they will love them. i never thought twice about BM gifts when I was a BM. I was just happy to be part of the day. Don’t get too obsessed with these boards. We all come from different places, means and are at different life stages. Go with your gut, and your gut seems to think, these gifts are perfect!
