But i covered the hair, makeup, and dress for my ladies.

I’ve only been a bridesmaid once. And we got the jewelry to wear the day of the wedding. I may even still have it, but honestly I’ve never worn it again. I like when bridesmaids wear similar dresses but different accessories.

I would appreciate, if I’m ever a bridesmaid again, Starbucks gift cards, gift certificate for a massage or mani/pedi, or something that reflects my releationship with the bride (photo, scrapbook, etc.)

Would she, if she knew it was paid for? that kinda sucks, but I opted out of the salon a bride wanted to book us for–simply b/c SIL is a hairstylist and would do it for free, versus $80 =]

I’ve been a Bridesmaid or Best Man 3 times.  The first I got some jewelry for the wedding, not quite my style but a lovely gift anyway, the 2nd I got a Starbucks gift card (ummmm it was a shotgun wedding, who has time for these details), and the 3rd I was the Maid/Matron of Honor and we all got beautiful jewelry boxes from Things Remembered engraved with our names, and as a little extra for all the organizing I did, I got a $100 gift cert to Mario Tricoci (a somewhat fancy salon chain in Chicago).  The gift certificate was the best because I never would have spent my own money at a salon that nice, so it was a real treat.

Daisy, mine dont either.  Im letting them all get it done where they want (frustrating for us paying, but get a gift certificate) and then we’re all getting together after that

Hm, that is ironic!

Too bad she doesn’t want to participate. I’m getting my hair done super early so i can still hang out at the salon w/ everyone so i’m not missing out =]

You could still I guess cover hair, just at the specific salon shes’ going to. But that’s kind of a pain, too. 

I think in general, anything pampering is nice. Spending money on ME is always the last thing on my list. I feel so guilty about the $25 for pedicures, and yet so good afterwards. It’s a sickness =]

I’ve been a Bridesmaid or Best Man twice.  The first time we received jewelry to wear with our dresses.  It was okay, but not something I would have worn often, if ever again.  My sister was also a Bridesmaid or Best Man in the same wedding, and her necklace broke less than an hour before the wedding.  She and I spent a good 20 minutes trying to fix it and finally managed to rig it so it would hold through the ceremony, but broke soon after.  The other wedding I was in, we had our (custom-made but not re-wearable) dresses, shoes, hair, and jewelry paid for.  The dress is still hanging in a closet, but I’ve worn the shoes and jewelry a few times since then.  I liked that my hair was taken care of, so that I didn’t have to worry about it.

I have gotten jewelry every time (also once rec’d manicures, and once a clutch on top of the jewelry).

Last summer, we all got a Vera Bradley Jewlery roll and medium make-up bag. We all went to the MAC Counter and got our make-up done and the bride bought us each the lipgloss color and one other item. I got some great make-up out of the deal, and it was easy on the bride too.

I loved the huge monogrammed tote I got for the first wedding I was in. 

I’m getting the bmaids Coach clutches and the readers/program attendant small monogrammed totes.
