here is what i am planning on giving my bridesmaids. would you like this? would you wear this bracelet? any suggestions would be appreciated!
monogrammed cosmetic bag:
filled with bath and body travel size items and candy, and this bracelet with a cute note thanking them for helping us “tie the knot”:

While I love the bracelet, I’m not a fan of the cosmetic bag. What about clutches/evening bags instead for the girls?

I would (well, honestly I probably wouldn’t really use the little bottles of bath and body products, I have a ridiculous amount of them in my cupboard because my MIL gifts them for every single occasion), but I think the bag and bracelet are both super cute. But you know your maids better than us – is the bracelet their style? Do they have use for the cosmetic bag or are they a natural girl who doesn’t wear or carry around much makeup?

I love it! Similar to what I got my girls. That bracelet it soooo cute! And I like the cosmetics bag too

The bags and bracelet are too cute! I would probably toss those tiny bottles though

i like it all. it may be the picture but are the make up bags big enough?

@mrs_brownie: Yes! I really adore the bracelet too! Where did you find it?

I love the bracelet! I wouldn’t mind if that were the only gift. The cosmetic bag and bath products are just eh.

I think most women (myself included) could fill a kiddy pool with the weird smelling lotion that we’ve received as gifts over the years but, if you filled those bags with treats and chocolate we’d be in business.

I love the bracelets they are so cute! maybe fill the cosmetic bags with stuff they could need for the day of the wedding. q-tips, nail file, tampon just in case, etc etc

thanks for all the advice and opinions ladies! i was thinking about giving them clutches but i doubt they would ever use them, so now i’m thinking maybe a tote bag instead? and i’m thinking about ditching the lotions and sprays and going with candy instead (all my bridesmaids love chocolate!) what do you guys think?
@Rouquine: i found the bags on etsy!

@mrs_brownie: I do think the candy is a much better idea, most people have specific bath products they prefer and those little bottles tend to sit around forever. Chocolate, on the other hand, never lasts long at my house!

I LOVE the bracelet and the make up bag, but I’d much rather have it filled with chocolate than body lotions and things like that.

I LOVE that you chose a make up bag! It’s so different and incredibly functional. In fact, I’m stealing this idea 😛 Where did you find the braselets?
I’m with the other bees though, fill it with something else. Maybe some nice Burt’s Bee’s chap stick? Eyeliner pencil? Fun nail polish color for the big day?
