  • Wedding: June 2014

I bought my girls each a pair of cowboy boots (since I want them to wear them in the wedding, I didn’t want to make them find some!), a bracelet (different one for each girl that shows their personality) and a personalized bag full of “day of” needs (fav candy, fav booze, bobby pins, moisturizer etc)

My groom bought his fella’s each a wooden table clock with exposed gears (skeleton clocks I think they are called…) – each one is slightly different. He also is putting together day of kits with beer, candy, toothbrush etc

I made earrings for all the girls to wear on wedding day and we bought ties and socks for all the guys to wear on wedding day. Gifts were as follows:

Matron of Honor: Tote with a quote from a book we both love, a book she hasn’t read that I know she’ll love

Bridesmaid 1: Tote with collage of quotes from her favorite TV series, 2 framed photos from the Hubble Telescope

Bridesmaid 2: Tote with quote from the song we have a choreographed dance to, book that I know she hasn’t read and will love

Bridesguy 1: Microbrew beer and a T-shirt

Bridesguy 2: Gift card to hunting store

Best Man: Blender

Groomsman 1: Gift card to home depot (he’s redoing his bathroom)

Groomsman 2: Nice bottle of Rye whiskey

Groomsman 3: Set of nice bourbon glasses

Mine are getting jewelry, pashminas, and robes for getting ready.  I may add diamond candles to their gifts too, but haven’t decided on that yet.  I’m also paying for their dresses and shoes.

I have two maids of honor, no bridesmaids, so my budget is a bit higher. Their main gift was a gift card from giftcards.com with a personalized photo. This might not sound personal, but I know my girls.

I’m also going to do personalized hangers (already got them from etsy) and a bottle of wine. I might also get them each a bracelet with my accent color.

I’m still finalizing my ideas, but I’m for sure getting each of the girls a personalized hanger for pictures of our dresses and personalized champagne flutes for mimosas while getting ready.  They each got “bridesmaid” rhinestone tank tops when I asked them to be in the wedding, and they’ll wear those the morning of the wedding for photos…I’m crazy about photos and want really cute ones with my girls πŸ™‚ 

I have a Maid/Matron of Honor and 4 Bridesmaid or Best Man, my sisters (3 BM) are kinda broke and we went with $300 dresses for them, so I’m covering 1/2 the cost of their dresses.  Getting all the Bridesmaid or Best Man hair accessories to wear at the wedding, and for my 2 remaining BM/MOH I’m thinking of a coach wristlet for the Bridesmaid or Best Man, and a Kate Spade or Tiffany’s necklace for my Maid/Matron of Honor but don’t want to spend more then $150 on that…

  • Wedding: November 2013

I got each of my bridesmaids a necklace that I want them to wear on the wedding day (I know some people do not technically count this as a gift)

 

A tote bag from etsy with their name and “Bridesmaid” printed on

 

A mini makeup bag filled with nail polish, mini mints, hand sanitizer, makeup wipes, etc.

 

Homemade coasters, I DIYed them.

 

A hanger with their name inscribed in wire to hang their bridesmaid dress on

 

Then I’ll throw in a few fun items like candy, a mini bottle of wine or champagne, and chocolate

 

I also chose an expensive dress for the bridesmaid dresses, so I paid a portion of that too.  Overall, I think I’ve spent about $1,000 on 6 bridesmaids.  YIKES – way more than I was originally planning on, but every time I see something cute, I think of them and buy it πŸ˜›

@LaceyBride1123  Glad I’m not the only one who keeps seeing cute Bridesmaid or Best Man gift ideas and tacking that on to my list of things to get them, it’s just so fun πŸ™‚  And etsy has lots of great ideas…
