Bee month twins! What are you getting your ‘maids??
I thought of this today: cashmere gloves and pashminas? But I can’t find any that I really like that aren’t an arm and a leg.
What are you guys doing for yours??

I bought their dresses and I’m paying for mani-pedi’s the day before and make up day of. And my mom made them necklaces to wear with their dress.
I also got them personalized totes when we went on my bachelorette cruise and filled with goodies like wine and personzlied wine glasses.
Have you checked redenelope.com for the cashmere gloves and pashmina?

I got them wraps to wear if they get cold, I made jewlery for the wedding and we are bringing the whole Wedding Party back cool gifts from our Honeymoon in Italy. 🙂

I learned how to knit this year, so I made them each a scarf in their favorite colors. Then I’m buying their jewelry, and just bought a little monogrammed makeup bag that I’m going to put a “day-of survival kit” in. I’m also going to write a personal thank you note to each one.

what I got my bridal party:
For the girls: Fossil Clutches and necklaces from etsy (buyer beware: sometimes you can get great stuff from etsy, sometimes what you get turns out to be kind of meh. the gemstones looked cheap to me so I went to a bead store and bought chunky swarovski beads to swap them out.)
for my bridesman: a fossil wallet and a kenneth cole belt
for my officiant: (he was a friend and wouldn’t let me pay him): a set of two candles by this designer: http://www.jonathanadler.com/. he LOVED them.
for my mom: a handmade green amethyst and sterling silver ring.

For my two Bridesmaid or Best Man: iTunes gift cards. I’d like to get them something a little more sentimental, but I’m not sure what that could be. Maybe I will write them personal “thank you for being my friend” letter.
For my brother who is also standing on my side: I HAVE NO IDEA.
For the 3 Groomsmen: bright red ties and whatever else Fiance decides.
I’m really not a good gift giver. I need people to tell me what to get them for Christmas and birthdays. I was pretty impressed with myself when I realized I could get the girls iTunes cards and they would love them. :/

The girls are each getting a Kate Spade clutch or wristlet in colors I think they’ll like best. They’ll each have a gift card to one of their favorite stores inside the purse, so they can pickout something fun that they love (isn’t shopping half the fun of something new?).
The boys are each getting a bar set (bar tools in an ice bucket), one of the things on our registry we most hope to receive! It’s from Crate & Barrel. They’ll each also get a bottle of their favorite liquor to start their mixing off right 🙂
We also have to get something for our officiant (a family friend who I’m sure will not accept payment)–probably a really nice bottle of champagne or a gift certificate to a nice restaurant in the city.

You could always get monogrammed spa robes for them, there is a great Etsy shop that personalizes them
Or you could get them embroidered handkerchiefs

I got the girls canvas bags with their initals, a personalized wine glass, their jewelry for the dress…and was planning on either paying for their hair or a gift cert for their nails.
The guys are getting monogram cuff links and a beer mug that is monogramed as well.
I’m stuck as to what to get our parents! UGH!

I got my girls mugs from Anthropologie with their initials, like these:
I also got them all silver pashminas to wear on the wedding day if they get cold, and picked up cheap travel makeup bags from Target to put “day-of survival kit” stuff in. I’m also thinking of getting some cheap flasks and filling them with their favorite liquors, since they’re all party girls and our reception will just have beer and wine 🙂
Check out Etsy for pashminas. I don’t know about the gloves, but I got 6 pashminas (5 for BMs plus a blue one for myself) for about $90.

I got them their hair accessory, blingy bracelet and earrings (all to wear for the wedding). I am also paying for their makeup to be done. And then I wanted to get them something un-wedding related so I got them awesome initial necklaces from Etsy. They just came in today and they are so nice!

I got my ladies jewelry from Etsy, personalized hangers, and pashminas ($9 each at World Market–they don’t feel super luxurious or anything, but do the trick!!). I am debating on whether I should be getting them bags, too….or anything else!

I’m getting my girls the belts I want them to wear with their dresses and an overnight set of bags, with a larger bag, makeup bag and jewelry roll.

I am getting all of mine personalized tote bags and I am putting all of the essentials for the -day of- in the bags. These were very nice quality and a good price. 9.00 each, it included the monogramming at http://www.etsy.com/shop/PersonalizedGiftsbyJ
I believe she has quilted totes and makeup carriers.
