I’m having some trouble desiding on what to do for my girls? I guess i feel the need to give them alot because I’m having a wedding in Vegas and then a week later a reception back home. So far i ordered very cute bags from TheKnot, I’m having the names of each girl put on them, and i am also buying their neckless and earings. i was thinking about making glasses with names on them as a gift at the reception (but for the whole bridal party) I’m not sure what else to include in the bags?? Help please my wedding is 11-11-11 and reception 11-19-11 (on our 6 year anniversry 🙂 ) so im getting close, Im on a tight budget I’m a stay at home mom so Im trying to keep the cost down. What do you think?

I think it all sounds good and glases would be nice too. Since your doing a wedding in Vegas you can always make a bridemaids survival kit with cheap travel items in drug stores like tide pens, nails files, hair spray, Advil, tums, deodrant, mints, bandaids stuff like that. Im sure you can get cute cheap luggage tags since you will be traveling.

Those are nice ideas, they seem fine to me! I’m making personalized hangers for my maids, and giving them a bag, pashminas, and a survival kit. I’m also going to buy them necklaces. What about a casino chip so they can play roulette, or a gift card for some food or drinks or activity during their stay?

I would think about something thats more useful and to their tastes. A tote is cute, but some people have a ton, and a glass is fun for the night, but not something that they might put out at dinner because its not a matching set. etc.
Since you didnt order the glasses, I would not do that and order something with that money. Maybe a nice clutch/wristlet each would like, or something fun like PJ’s or slippers to their tastes.

@lefeymw: Agreed. I really like a bridesmaids gift that is about ME, not some cookie cutter gift that everyone gives their maids. Someone likes makeup, give them a new carrying case. Someone likes wine, a nice bottle.

Thanks Bee’s! I like the idea of “gift cards” or somthing like that for them to use during our stay in vegas, We will be there 2 days befor everone so I will go out and get them some “Vegas money” to include, I was also going to give them a survival kit, but not sure what to add in it, I know my girls are picky when it comes to things like that so i dont want it to nor be used, guess I can hit up the beauty supply house and get goodies, and as far as the glasses go, I have to by glasses for the whole wedding party anyways so I’m just going to get a set of them at TJmaxs and put the names on myself its easy and I think i nice gift. Now for the guys I have no clue what to get them? I Know we are buying their shirts and ties for the wedding but I’m not sure what else to give them.. I’m sure they dont really care to have a gift but maybe we can give them each a little money for gambling with. thanks for the help, Im up for any ideas!
