Have ya’ll started on bridesmaid gifts yet?
I have become addicted to Etsy and have got a couple of them under my belt. Right now, I have customized robes and customized wine glasses with their names on it. I will probably get totes to put them in and other small gifts from Target/Dollar Store. Also, I am paying for their makeup for the day of.
What did you ya’ll decide?

I am still thinking about what I am going to get them. I just said should i get them giftcards..or a pedicure and a necklace? How much are you spending on them?

I ordered personalized robes for my girls, I’m taking them for manicures the day before the wedding, and I’m making them each a scrapbook with pictures of us from throughout the year (I’ve gotten 2 and a half finished so far, out of 6). Also, about a month after the wedding, I’m taking them to a spa for the day and paying for one treatment for each of us, either a facial or a massage, and then we’ll go out for dinner together.

@romanticbride42: I got them clutches from Etsy and filled them with little things like nails files, tissues, lip gloss, etc.

I bought them mini pedicure sets and I’m writing them each a letter telling them what they mean to me. It feels like I haven’t given them enough, but :/ It’s probably the most I can do for the budget I have.

I’m also paying for their hair and makeup, so that boosts it up quite a bit. But still.

They are getting jewelry and shoes and POSSIBLY makeup if our budget permits.

I had bought them necklaces from Etsy (with their birth stones and initials), made them each a sash to wear with the dresses, giving them a little makeup pouch with lip glosses etc… and also getting them a gift certificate at a spa for a 60 min massage. figured since i can’t take them to Bali with me, I will bring Bali to them 🙂

I ordered them some really cute customized makeup bags from Etsy. I will pick up a few things to stuff in the bags as well…lipgloss, nail file, etc. I’m also giving them earrings to wear for the wedding and a gift card to cover the cost of pedicures the day before the wedding. Total cost around $90-95.

I bought handmade cuff bracelets from a local vendor monogramed makeup bags (which, like many of you, I will be filling with a few little gifts). Since my mom is pretty close to all of my bridesmaids, she is getting them each a robe.
I got my “brides-man” personalized cuff links, and a real bowtie with matching pocket square. (all of the groomsmen are getting the real bowties as part of their gift too, and I didnt want him to feel left out!).

I got them a pashmina scarf ($6 the day after thanksgiving last year!), a sparkly tank top in wedding colors ($3 each), Jewelry to wear the day of ($10/set), A Hoodie with “All you need is love” saying on the back ($22/each), a mini bottle of wine ($1.50/each), and the one I’m most excited about, a Diamond Candle! I got them with a recent sale for $17 each. If your not sure what a diamond candle is, google it! I think it’s awesome! 🙂 Obviously most of the rings are going to be $10 but the possibility of getting a ring of value makes it exciting.
