I would just say that it’s a lovely thought but that you are sorry and can’t afford to go in on the bracelet.

Hm. What is this gift for?

IF it is for a bridal shower or a wedding present it’s not really an appropriate gift because it is a personal item that would not be used by the groom. Just tell them you’re getting your own gift but thanks anyway.

IF it is for a personal shower at the bachelorette party then this is appropriate and you can choose to either go in on the bracelet or get your own gift.

IF it is just a random present not related to any traditional gift giving event, then it’s really up to you. If you don’t want to go in you don’t have to, but be prepared for some questions from the other bridesmaids.

So overall, you need to give gifts for any showers and as a wedding gift. Beyond that there is no obligation for gifts. Bracelet or otherwise.

And, by the way, that’s way expensive for a monogram bracelet. I have one that was about $30.

@JenGirl:

These guys said it all. I’d just say straight up that you don’t care to go in on a bracelet, but thanks anyway.
