- Wedding: June 2013
So I have a question about what to get my Maid/Matron of Honor. We are having a very small budget wedding with only an Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man in the wedding party. Our wedding kind of came together in a week. Everything has been planned/booked/arranged and now I am just picking up the odds and ends that I need. Because of this, so far, I have had very little help needed from my Maid/Matron of Honor except for a few phone calls. She also lives in another city 3 hours away and I most likely won’t even see her until the day of. I know she is planning her speech/toast, but other than that I don’t think she is planning a stag or bridal shower (if she is they will be surprises and I have already said are unnecessary).
I know it is a great gesture and etiquette to give a token of your appreciation to the bridal party (however many) with a gift. My question is: what should I give to my MOH? And how much is appropriate to spend? (I am in the ballpark of $50, but I don’t know if this is adequate?). I was thinking of finding a spa in her town and ordering a gift certificate for a pedicure? Or going to BBW and putting together some stuff she might like? After our cake and punch reception, my Fiance and I are taking our bridal party out for dinner – could this be the gift?
We are not having a rehersal dinner so I will be giving this gift to her privately the day of or at the bridal party dinner after (if the dinner is not the best gift).
Any ideas are welcomed and appreciated! Thank you!!!!
