    I’m curious to see the results, since I’ve been eyeing similar flats!  So I guess I vote for those.

    @Treejewel19:  Treejewel, I said neither, but only b/c I personally would not want or use either of those things.  I have a million compacts and I just don’t like the shoes.  BUT, if you think your BM’s would like them, then I think either of them would be a useful gift – perhaps the compact more so than the shoes.  

    Do any of the ladies drink coffee?  Honestly I think a $20 starbucks gift card could work too, but you might be opposed to gift cards.

    @AshleyR83:  You have a valid point, I definitely only use a compact when it attached to my face makeup, and not everyone likes flats.  But who wouldn’t love a Starbucks gift card??  If you throw in a personal, meaningful note to each bridesmaid I think that would be great.

    @futuremrsfitz18:  I agree.  I know some people (including my mother) think gift cards are tacky, but I love giving and receiving them.

    I voted for compact mirror.  I like to keep one in every purse I have so I can never have too many.

    I voted for the flats because I would love to receive them as a gift!

    I voted for the flats. They could put them on at the end of the night if their feet hurt from dancing in heels and they are definitley something that can be used afterwards.

    @Treejewel19:  I like the metallic options (gold, sliver) because they are neutral but a little more fun than basic black

    I would say black or silver for the flats. They will go with pretty much everything then.

    What do you think of jewelry rolls? I’m considering them as part of my bridesmaid gifts. You can find a bunch of really cute ones on Etsy!

    I’d do the gold flats 🙂

    That being said… I may actually do that 🙂

    ETA: What color are your bridesmaids dresses? I’d make sure to do a color that matches them in case they end up wanting to use them that night.

    OMG THOSE EARRINGS SOUND GORGEOUS!  WHAT A TALENTED FRIEND AND FELLOW BEE YOU HAVE!

     

    haha  Okay, but seriously, I vote for the compact because in all honesty I personally wouldn’t have a use for the flats, but I apply lipstick like, all day long.  But instead of my real name, I’d want it to be like a script BITCH or something.
