I would personally get each bm something that they all love that is different. Also, I would stay away from the jewellery as your FSIL is obviously very picky (the bracelet is a particular style). Myself? I bought each person in my bridal party a purse that goes with each person’s style and colour (MOH a leather messenger bag with a nice travel toiletry bag, bm1 I got a blue Coach bag [she loves Coach] and purple beaded bracelet, and bm3 a pink leather Nine West bag with pink beaded bracelet and a hippo soap [she loves hippos]). My FSIL gave 3/4  girls the same thing – a makeup bag full of really nice makeup but for the fourth girl (who is a tomboy) she gave really good headphones and something else. I’ve never known anyone to complain about getting something different than the other people.

 For groomsmen we are looking at getting wood cigar boxes with a flask that has their names engraved on both (from Etsy). We plan on filling the boxes with the flask and a mickey of the liquor they really like (rum or vodka or whatever) and possibly cufflinks that has their favourite super hero on it.

chronicwhimsy:  I got mine all individual gifts as I wanted to get them each something they would like and keep, and they’re all very different. I bought them:

MOH: love Lego and Nike Roshe trainers, so (lol):

Junior BM (wanted to get her something she could keep and that she might wear agian):

Silver, CZ and pearl necklace:

White gold and CZ studs:

Adult BM 1 (best friend since we were like 18 months old; she moved to Australia back in March (she’s coming back for a month for the wedding) and it broke my heart 🙁

Australian kiwi-green opal and 14ct yellow gold studs (to represent her new life in Australia):

10ct yellow gold knot ring (I have a matching one; this represents our friendship and her life back here in England):

Adult BM 2 (best friends since nursery; she’s always wanted a simple, yellow gold band and is notoriously fussy, so, that’s what I bought her; no way I was chancing anything else lol):

Adult BM 3 (again, best friends since nursery (me and the 3 adult BMs are the same friendship group, just the 4 of us); she likes simple, classic jewellery so I bought her a yellow gold, pearl and diamond necklace, and yellow gold and pearl studs):


Then I’ve also bought blue satin dressing gowns which I’m ironing bridesmaid onto for the 4 adults (junior BM isn’t getting ready with us), and I’m providing champagne and nibbles for while we get ready.

As I said it was important to me to get them something unique to them. They can wear the jewellery on the day if they wish, but they’re not under any pressure to if they have something already that they’d rather wear 🙂
