I only have 2, so I was able to splurge. I got them each a single solid gold bangle bracelet. One yellow gold, one white gold becuase that is what they wear.

I filled their gift bags with fun stuff that went along with a poem I attached. There was a little bottle of champagne, wine topper shaped like a diamond, gourmet chocolates, glittery nail files, leather wristlets, pen and planner and some other stuff I can’t think of. I also got them necklaces from etsy that I gave them at my shower. It was fun.

I made each of them really pretty personalized necklaces. Thankfully they all love big jewellery! I made them for the flowergirls too, and apparetnyl I picked the perfect colours for each of them even though I’d never met them.

I know it’s “wrong” of me, but I didn’t get them gifts.  I bought my maid of honor’s dress for her because she bought my dress for her wedding, and I was planning to pay for their hair and makeup, but they’d already made a deal with the hairdressers without me.  Oh well.  They didn’t do, like, anything.  I did it all on my own with the exception of some help from my maid of honor.

I got them all necklaces from Origami Owl.  I was worried that the girls wouldn’t like them or find them too girlish, but my wife insisted (we had a same sex wedding and we had all girls in our party).  I was really surprised at how much they loved them.  My sister was the one I was mostly worried wouldn’t like it, however she went on the website right away to pick out more charms for her necklace. We also gave them each a bag filled with random supplies they may have needed for the day of the wedding.  Things like tweezers, sunblock, fashion tape, you get the idea.

I got them a coffee mug that suited their tastes (they all love coffee), a bottle of Bailey’s (to add to the coffee if needed), and a nail polish in their favorite color. I also gave them a gift card to DSW as they all love shoes.

I got them each a personalized wine tote (wedding a winery… we are all winos) with a bottle of wine, flip flops, and a pashmina. One of my BM’s doesn’t drink so I got her a regular tote bag and a personalized pocket cosmetic mirror instead.

I got each bridesmaid a quilted zipper makeup clutch with their first initial embroidered on each one.  Inside the clutch is a mini bottle of white Moscato, a thank you card, Godiva chocolate truffles and a bracelet charm from Pandora.

I’m getting them each a small box of godiva chocolate truffles(their favorite flavors), necklace and earring set, paying for hair/makeup/nails, and a hand written note to each of them telling them how much they mean to me/being a part of all of this.

@Artificial-Sweetener:  We ordered individual gifts for our wedding party members.  Everything was between $40 and $50.  Examples of gifts include: set of toasting flutes, digital photo frame, customized flask, and men’s valet.  They are all so different I couldn’t imagine buying them identical gifts.
