    No idea what Fiance is getting the guys (that’s one thing that is totally not my problem haha)  

    As for the Bms, I just recently decided I’m going to do a spa day in lieu of gifts.  I found a really cute spa that opened up back home that as excellent packages and prices.  I’m very excited about it.

    I thought about this for ages. In the end I bought the BMs their accessories for the day, though I wish I’ve have also been able to afford to get them their make-up done for the day, which I know many bees suggest doing. It’s a hard one really, I know, as buying stuff for them for your day is it really a gift but then again do they really want to be buying stuff for your day out of their own pocket, I don’t know and I suppose everyone’s view is different. When I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man I appreciated the gifts that we wore on the day and enjoy using them now.

    Our guys got Converse and argyle socks. My girls got probably more than I should have lol. I built them a spa kit with all the products, a massager, a candle and a monogrammed robe as well as buying them earrings and a bracelet to go with their dresses and a day-of emergency kit.

    Actually, I found a place that does a 30 min massage, a facial and foot scrub for $50. I’m not really spending a ton of my BMs.  I would if I could, but money is tight for us.  I figured I’d get them a gift certificate for $50 or so, then they can do what they want with it on our spa day, and then if they want more than that it’s up to them.
