Just need a little input/advice, etc.
My BMs are paying for: Their dress & shoes! That is it.I am paying for hair/makeup, jewelry, pretty much everything else. (Except hotel, we are getting married in our hometown so they don’t have to travel & I’m planning on having them at my house the night before the wedding. I do have a hotel set up & told them they are more than welcome to stay there the night of the wedding with their BF’s or whatever, up to them.)
When I asked them to be bridesmaids I gave them a tote bag with a jewelry organizer, personalized travel coffee mug, picture frame, Like a sparkley pen/notepad set, these things you put in your cup holder that absorb water, and I wrote them a card.
At the wedding shower I am giving them t-shirts for the bach. party.And for gifts I’m giving them perzonalized wine glasses, slippers bc we will be at the venue all day, a shirt/dress to wear while getting ready (not sure what yet) and I was going to get them all infinity necklaces to wear that day.
Should I get something else? They’ve all been wonderful, but I don’t want them to feel like I don’t care.

It seems like you’ve given then plenty of stuff! I think you’ve been generous 🙂

I think that’s a good amount, though if you want to get more… no one says no to more gifts! If you want to get more but don’t want to spend more money, cookies or another homemade treat would probably be loved. Or else just post-wedding take each of them out individually to dinner, your treat, to catch up on non-wedding things that you may have missed.

I think you’ve done more than enough!
I’ve received bridesmaid gifts before, but I’ve never gotten gifts when asked to be a bridesmaid or at a shower, so I think you’ve already gone above and beyond.
I think they must all feel very appreciated already.

Why don’t you write them each a handwritten note to accompany the material items?

I think you have given them plenty of stuff. I feel like with all you have done, they should feel more than appreciated.

I love y’all!
@distracts: That’s a great idea, I’ll probably make some chicken salad sandwhichs for us to snack on while we get ready & what not. And everyone loves cookies!!!!!
