That is so sweet of you!  What about getting her a fancy bobby pin with blue gem/sapphire on it so she can put it in her hair?

My “something blue” was blue polish on my toes! Maybe a bottle of nail polish? 

Also, I just wanted to say how REFRESHING it is to see a bride on here being happy for an engaged Bridesmaid or Best Man, and not on here b*tching about how she’s stealing the attention away from you or some nonsense. So good for you, you’re a great friend 🙂

Tons of Etsy sellers have those something blue patches you can have sewn on the inside of your dress. When my moh got engaged I bought her a ring dish and a wedding themed set of philosophy stuff. I also wanted to get her the hanky panky i do undies but I felt odd buying her panties haha.

@LGenz:  Ha I thought about getting panties for my Maid/Matron of Honor (who is getting engaged soon) but again felt weird about the panties!

I’m very much in the same boat!  I have one Bridesmaid or Best Man whose engaged and getting married like 2 months after me and my Maid/Matron of Honor will be engaged soon and getting married about 3 months after me. I really wanted to do something special from my wedding to theres, but I just dont know what!   We’re all so different that things I like they wouldn’t.

I thought about doing the hanky thing as well, but then is it awkwrad if I dont get it for the other two bridesmaids??

@LaurenMcGovern:  I love the blue nailpolish idea. When one of my BMs got engaged, I bought a bunch of wedding magazines, and tied them together with a fancy ribbon, and decorated the inside of a box with bridal wrapping paper, tissue paper, and those strands of crinkly/crimped paper, and then mailed it to her with a card. I told her how happy I was for her and her fiance, and that this would help kick off planning for the most exciting day of her life.

Congrats! My Maid/Matron of Honor just got engaged recently, too.  Her date is a few months after mine.  I wanted to get her something useful & cute for the both of them.


I ended ordering this from personalized cutting board with cheese cutters. It looked excellent and had great value! I added a small basket of cheese, crackers and wine stopper for her.  She loved it.




If your Bridesmaid or Best Man has her date set this is just an idea!
