- Wedding: August 2014
So I am 15 days from my wedding and I haven’t gotten my Maid/Matron of Honor which is also my one and only bridesmaid anything yet. I had an idea but it was what my sister did for her wedding…but she is my only bridesmaid so now I can’t steal what she did haha! When she got married two years ago she got us all Coach wristlets which are like $80 each because it was a destination wedding and she knew none of us would want to lug around big purses on vacation. I remember thinking that’s a great idea I’m gonna do that too whenever I am in this situation. But now that she is the only bridesmaid I have I feel like I would look like I dind’t put thought into her gift and I don’t want her to feel that way. She helped my mom throw me a beautiful shower, she’s throwing me a fun bachelorette party tomorrow night, she hand maid all my shower, bachelorette, and wedding invites (she needs to do it as her career seriously!) So I want something to show her I really appreciate all she has done for me these last 8 months. She’s just turned 30, is finishing her degree, and is a first time mommy so alot of her interests and hobbies the past year have changed. She is very simple and easy going, and spends alot of time at home with my nephew and her husband. But she never wants anything! Her bday a few weeks ago she told everyone not to get her a cake or gifts, of course I still gave her some cash and a cake and flowers etc…she tried to give the money back! Whenever she comes up with ideas of what she wants it’s always something for the house or baby she never wants for herself. But I don’t want her thank you gift to be house decor!!! I thought of a spa day, but she is sooo busy all the time between picking up when she can at work, going to school, taking care of the house and baby and being a wife I think a gift certificate for that would end up expiring haha. I thought of making her a nice big wine basket with cheeses and chocolates and all that but she really only drinks beer with an exciting switch up of White Zin if she ran out of beer haha. I know my sister and she’ll like whatever I do or get her but as I said her interests changed when she became a mom and I just don’t know what to get! So far I have earrings for the wedding…and I’m stuck. I thought of an assortment of fun things for the day of the wedding like personalized hanger but she would think that’s stupid cause she probably would never wear her dress again lol I thought of the fun robes the day of getting ready…she will complain her stomach is fat from having a baby…anyone else come into this dilemma and have any ideas or any mommies out there than can relate and give input to what they would like????
