I don’t like pink on beige, the colors are too similar. But if they’re all you have it’s all you have.

I really like the totes but think the names make then look a little cheesy. Are you absolutely set on having the names?  If I were a bridesmaid I’d use the plain tote a lot but never use one with my name.

Ditto Curlycupcake.  Why would I use something with my name written on it?  You should get gifts for your BMs that they will actually like and use.  Buy for them like it is their birthday or Christmas.

Agree with pp. I’m so much more likely to use something without my name scrawled across it.

If it’s not too late, I also vote for leaving them plain. It’s been a long time since I carried anything with my name on it.

I’m not a fan of the pink lettering on the beige- it’s kind of hard to see. If it’s not too late I would suggest leaving th names off. I don’t think I would carry a bag with my name on it.

Agree with PP, the tote is a nice gift, but I would leave it without the names.  At least if the intention is for them to use it.

I am assuming that these girls are your close family and friends. How often do you see friends/family having the exact same bag in the exact same colour. So whilst I agree with pp’s that the names need to be left off I would probably say that unless each bridesmaid lives in an entirely different city I would get them different totes each or at least different colours.

The bags themselves look cute, but I agree that the names tend to cheapen them. You could instead put a personalized zipper pull/keychain with their name/initials monogram on one of the straps that they could either keep there as a bag charm or take off and use separately as a key ring.

Etsy has tons, but here are some:
