I’m gonna put together a box to ask my BMs but I’m not sure what to put in it. Any Ideas?
So far I’ve seen:
Picture of me with the BM
A mini bottle of champagne
Card asking them
A personal letter
Ive also seen some people doing bridesmaid book’d (like a guide) and wedding day info. Is that too bridezilla?

@MrsCreeToBe: Nail polish (possibly a color you would like them to wear), a paint swatch indicating color of the dress (especially helpful if you want to do mismatched), a frame for the photo of you and BM, a hanky for any happy tears.

I think that’s plenty. It’s the thought that is touching. Also, you want to save some gift ideas for their bridesmaid gifts.

I put very similar items in mine, although i put in small bottles of pinnacle whipped (my fav!), also included a pretty bracelet and a photo collage of the wedding’s “look”.
I “proposed” to each girl seperatley so that I could let each girl know my expectations up front, the type of dress we would be looking for and aprox cost of their dress. This was more to assure them that they would Not have a financial burden of accepting and that i wanted them to be comfortable and happy in their dresses and also have the chance to bow out discreetly if they had any conflicts.

I think what you have now is plenty. Any more (IMHO) would make it seem kind of like a grab bag type thing instead of a simple, thoughtful gift. LOVE your idea. 🙂
