    @EmilyJoy:  You’re a very giving bride! My bm and moh will be getting personalised flutes kind of as their bonbnairre but there’s a candy bar too. And I might get them a piece of nice jewellery too and give it to them morning of, but that’s it haha.

    I would say if they are still bms and you have resolved the issues, just give them those gifts at the shower. It doesn’t matter at which event you give them a gift IMO.

    I would give those gifts as a thank you for being in the wedding. We gave out our gifts at the rehersal dinner.

    @EmilyJoy:  wow you are going above and beyond!  I would just gave the hostesses of my bridal shower a plant and personalized stationary.  and then at the rehearsal dinner i gave my bridesmaids a jewelry box and a bracelet….my MOH got a gift card and a belt as well.

    I would totally roll those into “thanks for being my bridesmaid” gifts. And they sounds great, by the way. I handed out my gifts invidivudally in the days leading up to the wedding (or in one case, the day after the weddin). I liked that I was with each person as they opened their gift and that it could be a bit more private. But I actually almost forgot to give my MOH her present because I had been saving it. But it worked out.

    @EmilyJoy:  Yep for sure, I think they say thank you, both for being your BMs and for hosting and they will be so grateful regardless 🙂

    I can say for sure without ever meeting you you’re so not a bridezilla! 😛

    I got my bridesmaids Will You Be My Bridesmaid? gifts. They each got a copy of Breakfast at Tiffany’s dvd (since that is the wedding theme), a to-go wine cup, a Scentsy bar in “Love Story” scent (I am a Scentsy consultant) and I had it all in a Tiffany blue gift bag that said “Holly & Co”

    For the actual wedding, I am planning on giving them each a mini Origami Owl locket with their initial and a charm that is personalized to them. (I love to support fellow direct sales reps) and I am also giving them a Thirty One gifts zipper pouch with essentials for the day.


    If you WANT to give them gifts early, go for it, but I’d wait, honestly.
