I don’t think that’s tacky. In fact, If i had a friend like you that got awesome perks like that from a job, I’d want to benefit from them as much as possible, hehe!

Seriously though, they aren’t going to know how much you paid for the necklaces or totes, so why does it matter if/how much you paid for the other stuff?

I don’t think it is tacky. You are giving them AWESOME things that (even though you got it for free) they would have paid a lot for if they would have bought themselves. I am sure your girls will be thankful for whatever they get-they aren’t being your Bridesmaids because they want a gift-they are doing it because they love you!

It’s a good idea! It’s not like they will necessarily know that they were free anyway.

Your gifts sound great–Like ajonesyy said, they are in your wedding because they want to be, not to get gifts!  (Besides, let me say it again, your gifts sound great–it doesn’t matter how much you”paid” or didn’t pay!

Yep I agree it doesn’t matter what you spent on them.  No one else will know and you shouldn’t tell them.  To me I think you’ve done plenty with paying for the rooms and the necklaces.

I would love a gift like that.  I agree with a PP, if I was your friend, I would think it was awesome that you had access to that type of stuff and could pass it along!

A gift is a gift – it doesn’t matter how you got it (unless you stole it) or how much you paid.  If someone buys me something that they got on 50% off clearance it doesn’t make it less of a gift because they paid a fraction of the price.

I don’t think it’s tacky either. I’m making the vast majority of my Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts to save money.

I don’t think it’s tacky at all! It’s the thought that counts (plus you’re paying for their accommodations). Don’t tell your girls the swag was free, just let them ooh & ahh over the great stuff you gave them 🙂
