If you are able to, I would pay for their hair

Pay for hair and get them something like a wristlet or a clutch that they can use after the wedding.

most bridesmaids have to pay for their own dress/shoes anyway.. do your BMs have the alternative of doing their own hair? or does it have to be done for $85.00

Since you are getting them wine glasses you could also include a bottle of wine for each girl. That’s something I would appreciate, especially since I dont always like to accumulate more “stuff”

@loopdiloo: If you are requiring them to get their hair done, I would definitely pay for it. You really can’t expect that everyone has that type of money for something you’re making them do. 

Also, the tanks, I’m not sure how much good those will do after the wedding. Are you able to give it to them before your shower or bachelorette party (if you have either of these)?

I think a nice piece of jewelry for sometime other than the wedding would be nice. The glasses sound like a cute idea. What about flip flops? What else do they like that you can afford to give them?

I am so glad you wrote this! I feel the same way! And I have had the same experience of paying for everything myself, but a lot of people here seem to have opposite experiences. For my wedding I have the exact numbers as you. (2 Maid/Matron of Honor, 4BM) So far I have bought each a bag (like a large tote. I went on Amazon and got them for $6 a piece), flipflops from Old Navy (2/$5 sale) and a pashmina. I am going to add earings that I found on etsy (to wear the day of), and a cute cosmetic bags in their fav color(also on etsy). I love to scrapbook so I plan on adding something little in there too.

When I have been in my friends wedding, I have got little presents that I have eventually thrown away. The best things I got were beach towels, but a wedding in the fall that wouldn’t work.
