I love the umbrellas!  Even if it doesn’t rain I would use them in the pics! They will make for super awesome group photos! Something like that would be fun to have (depending on your group), even if I didn’t use it that much I would totally have it hanging out to be seen! I like the shawl idea as well.  I think that these two gifts are very nice gifts…  and totes are always nice…

That sounds really nice, any girl could use a good tote and pashmina, and the umbrellas are just lovely. Hopefully they’d get a lot of use out of them.

I like those gifts!!! Especiaally the LL bean bag. Can it be monogrammed instead of having their first name? I <3 monograms and you could put your new monogram on it.

@PinkMagnolia: You want the bridesmaids to have a tote bag with the monogram of the couple?

Those are great gifts that are fun & practical!

I like the idea to have each BM’s name embroidered on the bags.  I am wondering about PinkMagnolia’s suggestion, too…  I received a tote bag as a Bridesmaid or Best Man gift a couple years ago, and it had the name of the bride & groom on it along with their wedding date.  I have never once used it.  I feel bad about it because it was such a nice thought, but honestly, I just feel weird about carrying a bag around with someone else’s names & wedding date on it!

So, I definitely think your idea to put the BM’s names on the bags is a good one!

I dont like any of them… no offense. Beyond the wedding day I would throw the tote bag in with all my other totes to use for groceries… but that about it. I already have shawls and a really nice umbrella, although the umbrella is cute and would be good for pictures I can’t see myself really using any of the gifts after the wedding.

I would also ask your girls if they like monograms or their name or neither, I asked my girls and the response varied.

I think the gifts are all nice ideas, but I would steer clear of putting YOUR monogram on anything that you’re giving them as a gift. If you want to monogram each girl’s tote bag with their own initials, that’s another story. Like a PP mentioned, I wouldn’t want to carry around a bag w/ someone else’s wedding date!

And those umbrellas are SO awesome!

None of them are things I would use, but it depends on your bridesmaids. If you think they will like them, get them.

I love all the gifts because they are all practical.  A pashmina and umbrella are always useful.  And I loooove the umbrellas you chose.  The only thing I would suggest is not having the bags embroidered.  As an adult I don’t really care for embroidery on my things.  that very much reminds of sorority days.
