One of my bridesmaids loves floral leggings (pointed some out while drooling over them), but doesn’t have any so I’d like to get her a pair or 2 as a surprise part of her bridesmaid gift.
Which do you like?
(please feel free to share any others you like- they aren’t really my thing, so it’s harder for me to pick them out, but these are all similar to the ones she liked)
F: (comes in yellow or pink, both below)

I really like F! Would look super cute with a black dress. I also like D. The other ones are a bit too “loud”.

I’m not a fan, but the pink ones in F and the grey ones in D are ones that wouldn’t leave me blinking in confusion at the wearer if I saw them in real life.
Do you remember the exact pair she pointed out? Because those would obviously be best.

Oh man, I definitely cannow wear pattnered leggings. But if I had to pick, I like the second and last ones best.
ETA: You have the poll only set to “choose one option”

@Bubblesmcgee: No, I don’t know the exact pair she pointed out. We were on public transpo and, while it did cross my mind, I thought it might be creepy and obvious if I tried to take a pic of some stranger’s leggings. 😉 I wish I had, but I’m pretty sure she’d like at least 3 of these leggings I’m choosing between.
From what I can remember, A, C, D, E, and F seem closest to the ones she liked. If I get A, B, or C, I can get her 2-3 different pairs of those, but if I get D, E, or F, I can only afford to give her one pair. The other part of her present is something I know she’ll like.

@Mrs.LemonDrop: Thanks- fixed the poll.

I’m not a fan of any of them. I like how you’re trying to get a gift for her interests, but leggings seem like a strange bridesmaid gift to me, especially ones with very loud patterns, like these ones.

@abbie017: For my bridesmaids, I’m getting them gifts that I’d get them if it was their birthday. This one bridesmaid loves these leggings and, besides these, doesn’t seem to have many new physical things she’d want as gifts. She doesn’t want/wear makeup, she is very particular about jewelry and purses (only likes picking them out herself) and is traveling a lot right now, so doesn’t want/can’t use much stuff and especially not home-type stuff (picture frames, clutches, robes, etc.). Strangely enough, I know that she’s always been happy with other ppl picking clothes for her and has quirky/funky style.
I think I may have mentioned that I wouldn’t wear these leggings myself either, but they’re a gift for her and she loves them and it’d surprise the heck out of her (in a great way) that I happened to pay attention the one time she mentioned something she likes and wants (but won’t buy for herself).
This bridesmaid has also gone above & beyond in planning an extra party for me, so I want to get her something special on top of her normal bridesmaid gift. I don’t see why this is a strange gift when she’s made clear that she’s mostly living simply and traveling light and she’s said very excitedly that she likes and wants floral leggings.

- Wedding: April 2013 - A court...
D or F in yellow since they seem like they’d be easier to dress because the pattern is more faded.

UPDATE: Talked to a non-bridesmaid mutual friend who’s into fashion- she personally loved E, but thought that C was the best bet with F in yellow shortly behind it. With her advice and the poll results, I went ahead and bought her C and now I’m debating whether I should buy B also or just put that money into her other present.
This is so much fun and I feel so sneaky. Can’t wait to see my bridesmaids’ faces.

It’s very sweet of you to buy your BM something she WANTS!

@Shkragoldfish: C by farrrrrr the best. Cutest, easiest to wear other stuff with.

UPDATE: I got her C even tho F in yellow is the only one I might consider personally wearing (also, oddly, C was way way cheaper than F- some of those leggings pictured were over $100 maybe even over $200, for some dang leggings because they’re alexander mcqueen etc. I didn’t put brand or prices initially b/c I didn’t want that to influence responses).
She loves them and started wearing them as soon as she could. She told me that she was so confused about how I knew how much she’d like them. I reminded her that she’d seen someone wearing ones like that on the street last time I was with her and that she’d started drooling over them. She loved that I remembered that and was looking out for what she liked and wanted even months and months before the wedding. thanks for your help, bees.
