So right now I am looking to see what I should get my girls and my Fiance would get the guys. But we don’t know how much we should spend on each.
We have 6 on each side including the Maid/Matron of Honor and Best man.
What is a good budget for them? And what are some good ideas?
What did you guys buy for your party?

@galvezx: I spent less than $115 on all six of my girls together! Went to the Bath and Body works sale section on their website and they each recieved a gift bag with a standard size shower gel and matching body lotion, tubes of flavored lip gloss and a scented candle. Nothing super extravagant, but stuff that all my girls love and I didn’t have to break the bank.

I spent less than $100 on everyone! For the girls I hand-painted them a nice tote bag, found some plain picture frames and painted them(with a base color and designs), got them some manicure set, and I etched/painted their wine glasses. For the guys, my Fiance got them some really nice collectible lighters(they love that stuff) and I etched/painted their wine glasses.

- Wedding: May 2014 - Scottish Rite Cathedral (New Castle, PA)
My Fiance and I will be spending a little less than $100 on each member of our party. For the girls I’m getting them their earrings and bracelet for the wedding and a wristlet/clutch as well as fast flats for the reception. I’ve always been a big gift giver and wanted them to have quality things so the earrings are from Kay’s and the wristlets/clutchs are from Coach/MK. I originally wanted to only spend about $50 each but that just wasn’t possible with what I wanted to get them. I only have 3 bridesmaids though so that definitly makes a difference!
The weddings that I was in I recieved perfume/lotions and was totally fine with that! It’s totally up to you! 🙂

We basically ended up spending about as much on each person as they did for our wedding in terms of attire and events (bachelor/bachelorette parties), which came out to about $150-$200 or so. But that was just us, i’m not sure there is really a rule here!
