I want to get the girls hosting my shower a gift… I guess I’ve been under-appreciated enough times in other weddings that I want them to know JUST how much everything they do means to me! I’m very much a DIY-er, but I don’t want all of their gifts to be homemade.
I really like the idea of umbrellas (“I hope your next shower is as wonderful as mine was!”)… but since I have 8 BMs plus my mom who is helping out a ton, I need them to not be too expensive (I’ve already gotten them all gifts for the bachelorette party, bridal tea, and rehearsal dinner too, so I’m getting low on cash!!). Any ideas on where I could get cute umbrellas for a good price??

I’m thinking of doing the same thing! I also have a big bridal party plus 3 other people who have really helped out! I’m going to be getting them a bouquet of flowers and then a small personalized gift card for something they each like.
Umbrella idea is really super cute but I don’t understand the whole poem.

@Stephanie18x: I gave my bridesmaids umbrellas. I ordered them off of etsy but they were about $20 each :-/. I had 6 bridesmaids. I bought them wayyy ahead of time to get it out of the way. Sorry I’m not much help. But maybe check out all of the etsy vendors and see if you could get a good price since you’re ordering so many

I got my hostesses umbrellas from here:
They are super cute! She gave them to me for 14.50 a piece since I was ordering 3, but she might give you a better price since you’re ordering so many. Maybe email her and ask her if she can do them for $12 a piece?

Sorry I didn’t see that I had responses!! @Kenic315 – I’m going to check it out!!
I also found cute umbrellas at MICHAELS (of all places) yesterday… they’re $12.99, but they always have the 40% off coupon, which would make them $7.80!! It would take a while to get enough, but I could do it! I might do that if nothing else works out!

@Stephanie18x: I made these for my BM as pre-wedding gift, I’m hosting a BM get-together in June and plan to give them these at that time.. as a thank you for all that they’ve done, and will be doing in the next year. They were totally DIY and super easy & came out like to $3 a piece!
If your friends are wino’s like mine, they’re sure to love them!!

@Stephanie18x: I found this cute little “crazy-color umbrella” in the clearance section at Old Navy not long ago for $7.99. It says it changes colors in the rain, but I haven’t tested it out yet.
