- Wedding: October 2012
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! 🙂
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 also saw some descent totes at dollar store actually. Don’t say bridesmaid or anything on it, but could easily be turned into one.
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.
SOOOOOO… I couldn’t stop myself! Last night I had to go to BBB and get the tumblers and also some nice hangers to do some personalization on.
Easy hanger personalizing I saw this week: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/diy-monogrammed-hangers-1
Plus while checking out they had these owl shaped lip gloss that are just too cute!!! And go with our fall theme, so I had to add them as well. 🙂
Now I think I am done. I swear!
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.
I can’t stop either!!! Glad(?) to see I’m not alone! LOL! 🙂
