Uh, story of my life! I have 4 bridesmaids and my Maid/Matron of Honor (my lil’ sister)

I have already purchased:

– Unique bracelets for each bridesmaid
– Tiffany necklace for Maid/Matron of Honor
– Plastic bridal party tumblers with straws
– Pashminas with their initials embroidered on them

Still to be purchased:

– Vera Bradley tote bags for each
– Ballet flats for each
– Make-up bags with emergency essentials

I’m spending a ton on them, but they are my besties and I couldn’t imagine the big day without them!

I’ve posted this elsewhere as well, but I got my Bridesmaid or Best Man personalized totes from Zazzle.com, and I bought flip-flops at Old Navy that I wrapped ribbon around and put fabric flowers and jewels on, I bought champagne flutes and glittered them up, made them each a piece of jewelry to wear for the wedding, made them each a hanger with their name, and bought them all a figurine from willow tree, with special meaning for each of them and am writing them each a letter to go with it. 3 of my 5 BMs are my sisters, so I had to do something special! ๐Ÿ™‚

@Firinne:  If you’re looking for totes, the ones I ordered from Zazzle were less that $10 a piece! and they turned out great!! I also ended up sewing a little cloth flower to each one (pic is obviously before flower). I glittered my champagne flutes with Martha Stewart glitter paint…and then once they were dry I baked them in the oven for half an hour and they’re apparently dishwasher safe now! lol I guess we’ll find out…http://somethingturquoise.com/2011/10/21/diy-glam-champagne-glasses/

I forgot to take pics of the champagne flutes just by themselves, but here they are in the oven!  I also did some wine glasses, and one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man LOOOOVES beer, so I did a beer mug for her! They turned out great!!

I understand the pull to dote on your bridesmaids a little. Are any of your bridesmaids coming from out of town? Several of mine are. One of the main things I had to keep in mind before I started going crazy and buying everything in sight was the fact that whatever I buy, they have to cram into their bags and take onto a plane.

I can’t stop buying things! Each of my 5 BMs and my Maid/Matron of Honor are getting:

A chevron tote from Etsy

A sequined makeup bag with wedding-day emergency kit

Hot pink or turquoise pashmina

Glittery champagne flutes

My junior Bridesmaid or Best Man is getting a necklace instead of the champagne flutes, and my Maid/Matron of Honor is getting the Kate Spade bridesmaid bangle.

I HOPE I’m done, but I keep thinking of other things to put in the emergency kit! I really want to get them all matching sunglasses, but my funds are running super low.
