    I would get them shawls in wedding colours to wear with their dresses… how much you want to spend is up to you!

    I agree that if it’s in your budget, I think it would be a nice thing to do for your bridesmaids.  I’m planning on getting some cardigans for myself and my bridesmaids to wear if it’s chilly outside during photos.

    I also think that getting shawls for your female guests is a brilliant idea!

    I think pashminas are going out of style. A few years ago they were the hottest things and I own quite a few. However, I don’t wear them around the office like I used to. They just don’t get the same kind of time on my shoulders or around my neck unlike a couple of years ago.

    I say, save your money and put the money you’d spend on pashminas towards an EXTRA-fab BM gift.

    I’ve seen some pretty nice pashima-ish shawls in the $10-$15 range…

    It’s also a nice gesture~ not to mention something that if I were a BM I would wear it again.

    World Market has some beautiful color scarves/shawls/pashminas that are very inexpensive! It might be nice for them to have some that match the wedding colors!
