I have two bridesmaids. They’ve been my best friends for years. One since preschool, the other since junior high. Planning is not their strong suit, and I honestly had no expectations as far as a bridal shower, DIY crafting, bachelorette, etc. I chose them because of their importance in my life, not what they would do for my wedding. BUT they have come through with flying colors and I feel really blessed. I totally underestimated them.
I already bought their bridesmaid dresses & gave them to them as their Christmas gifts. They were about $80 and I usually spend $15 or $20, so I never really planned on getting them anything the day of, just a sweet thank you card. Now though, I am scrambling with the last bits of our budgets to come up with a perfect gift for my beautiful friends. One of them in particularly is the opposite of a girly girl. The other is more feminine, but tends towards classic, romantic, elegant. In other words, I can’t really see either of them appreciating anything personalized & cutesy. Soooooo. What about these vases from Anthro?? They’re both right around $20. I think they’re quirky enough for the one friend and classy and perfect for the other.

I think that they’re adorable and I’m a huge fan if Anthro home stuff though some is overpriced :/
You know your girls best and if it’s something that they will love, then go for it!

@misschickpea: Totally agree! I’ve banned myself from their site for the most part lol. $20 is a little high, but not totally outrageous. Most of their stuff is just ridiculous.

Cute! It’s nice to hear of great bridesmaids instead of the ones who go against the grain. You know them better than anybody on here. I think they will behappy to receive these. 🙂

I have one of those vases! It is so super cute and classy. And such a good deal! If one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man hadn’t gotten mine for me, I totally would’ve given them as gifts. 🙂
