She probably doesn’t expect a bridesmaids gift (I didn’t know about them until Fiance got one for being in another wedding). I would just give her the bracelet as planned and she could always wear the other one another time.

Where are you going on honeymoon? I know you probably don’t want to, but is it too late to change to a less expensive location? That’s what we are doing and then taking a super fancy expensive vacation for our first anniversary when we have more money.

Hope that helps!

I thnk you should just give her the bracelet. She can always wear it another time and you spent a good amount of money on it.

I agree. Give her the bracelet. She doesn’t HAVE to wear it the day of the wedding unless you insist.

I agree give the bracelet… i wouldn’t see it as being an issue this just shows that she is excited for ur wedding most BMs just think I’ve got the dress my hair is going to be done i’m set you seem lucky to have a Bridesmaid or Best Man who cares to look good for ur wedding.

This stuff will be the last thing on ur mind on the day of ur wedding. So just go about your plans and everything will turn out perfectly.

also, she may choose to wear the bracelet you got her to look like everyone else and might be upset if she was the only one with a different gift.

I agree with the other girls.  Don’t stress out too much about it.  I’m sure she’ll love the bracelet, even if she doesn’t wear it on the wedding day.

Don’t worry about trying to please her! Just go with the original plan and don’t let her stress you out! I’m a Bridesmaid or Best Man on the same day as your wedding! I know the bride is stressing the same way — money, time, etc. Her band canceled, her florist canceled and her Maid/Matron of Honor just broke up with her brother!! (Ack! Drama! — see it COULD be worse!) Her mantra has been “I see the light at the end of the tunnel” since last week. Even with all of the crap being dumped on her, she’s finally realizing that it’s not about the people in the wedding party or even the guests, it’s about her and her man celebrating starting a new life together!!! Don’t forget that!! Good luck with everything!
