Are the robes and jewelry for the wedding day?  If so, they aren’t really part of the gift, persay. 

I do like the earrings a lot.  I probably wouldn’t wear the robe again.  I like the scarves (especially the last one), but I’m not a scarf person so it would be lost on me, so as long as your girls like them, I think it’s cute.

You’ve put together a nice assortment of gifts – I think your girls and guys will have fun with them! Personally I think there is a tendency to go overboard on the bridal party gifts – they are honoured to be included and a simple gift that is reflective of each person and a heartfelt, handwritten card is enough. I was given a necklace that I never wore again and a little purse to go with my dress that was full of little toiletries I might need at the wedding – neither gift really felt personal or special, but I didn’t spend time thinking about it – I was just focused on helping the bride and having a great time! People who get upset about what they did or didn’t get for being in a wedding party have lost sight of what’s important. That said, I have gotten completely carried away with putting together special gift boxes for each of my girls, to the point I am spending more time fussing about their gifts than I am on other details of the actual wedding! The main thing, or biggest gift, I have included is a gift card to a spa in each of their home towns, then a bunch of little things that are all connected to their relationship with me, their personality, or the wedding.

Great assortment of gifts! I would be very happy if I got them… 

can I ask where you got the scarves from? Particularly the second last one with the chevron pattern?

I think they are lovely!  However, I would suggest toning down the personalized part and leave off most, if not all, of the initials and name stuff.  When people say you should personalize your bridal party gifts, it means you should pick something you think each person would want – such as what you did with the different scraves- not that you should put their names or initials on everything. 😉  Maybe only put initials on one thing, like just the robe or the flask, instead of all the things.

Also, for the tote, instead of letters could you do a picture of something each girl likes instead?  For example, if I were one of your BMs, my bag would have a drawing of a bear.  But you could do a flower, palm tree, mountain, shoe, etc.  based on what each girl likes.  Personally, I would much prefer a tote with a bear on it than my initial, but you would know your girls best!
