I was wondering what should be typically spent per bridesmaid on your bridal party gifts?
I do not plan to get everyone the same gift because they are all so different, aside from jewlery and flip flops. I went ahead and bought a few of the girls Coach wristlets because they were having a great sale, they were about $30 each. If i keep those and add flip flops and jewlery, is that enough? too cheap? Obviously other girls might get slightly more since their main won’t be as expensive.
I also wanted to get everyone personalized sunglasses (August wedding), with bridesmaid on one side and their name on the other, which seems like it will run to be about $20 each.
Not really sure what to do. I like the idea of them having one thing that does match, to get cute pictures with, but just can’t seem to think of anything. I thought

It depends on how much of their day-of accutruments you are paying for, IMO. My girls are paying for their own dresses and hair, (and travel), so I’m spending about $120 on each of them. However, if I were paying for their dresses and hair, I’d buy them something small, under $50 each.

My budget isn’t huge so I wont be paying for too much of my girls day of items. I will be purchasing sparkle TOMS for all my girls and then probably a necklace or bracelet that I’ve picked out for each of them (not matching and doesn’t have to be worn day of). If I come across anything else that’s cute but wont break the bank (10$ and under I might add it). I have four bridesmaids and a maid of honor.

I’ve been thinking about this too. I’m paying for their hair to be done ($65 each) and I got personalized hangers for their dresses ($20 each). I may add an inexpensive necklace for them all to wear at the wedding (no more than $20 each), but that would be it. So I guess $100 each. All they are paying for is their dress ($165) and can wear shoes they already have since it’s long.

I’m doing spa robes and a massages so about $130+ a candle warmer, heart shaped sunglasses and a few other randoms so maybe 150$
I did purchase cheapo day of jewelry so everyone matches…they don’t have to keep it. But that’s was about 30$ a person.
And we’re also gifting a 2 night stay at the inn @ 200$ a night so about 500$ per person I suppose…taxes smh.
I also got my MOHs each an engraved silver heart compact mirror…so I dunno 30$ each
Grand total about 680-810$
All of my bridesmaids and MOHs are traveling so I tried to really focus on things they could experience but not have to travel back with…I wasn’t totally succesful but I think they’ll be happy with everything.

I bought the dresses so I couldn’t afford much more so i bought them each a vintage beard purse all different and suited to their style for them to use for the wedding day. I collected them from antique shops over the year
