Can anyone share any pictures or links of some unique totes for bridemaids? i have been searching mostly on etsy and everything is starting to look the same to me…and kind of boring which is surprising for etsy! i want something unique looking that they can use also after the wedding. i plan on filling the tote with goodies for them…like flip flops..feathered hair piece…wedding clutch…bridesmaid undies…lol…oh and these really cute and whimsicle funny shower caps from urban outfitters…and a few more items that I am still deciding on.

What about making some? http://with–this–ring.blogspot.com/2010/01/diy-doily-canvas-tote.html
I think I’m going to do this, but we’ll see. Need to work on my letter stenciling skillz. And my sponge brush painting skillz.

I am getting my BMs totes from Cafe Press that are themed around the TV show Gilmore Girls, which all of them (and I) absolutely LOVE. They are not the world’s prettiest totes (just simple canvas bags), but I am positive they will get used after the wedding and they seemed more personal to me than just a monogrammed tote bag (plus at $17 a pop they were a lot less expensive than many of the tote bags I was looking at). If you don’t have a unifying trait for all of your BMs, you could always get each one a totally different design to go along with a show/animal/flower/etc that she loves.
