So I’m posting this because most of my friends are my bridesmaids, and those that aren’t, are friends with the bridesmaids, and my friends are worried about hurting feelings. Give me your honest answers, thank you!
Is this a good gift?
Paying for wedding hair
Statement necklace (they can wear whenever, not for wedding)
small kate spade coin purse/wallet
Personalized wine glass or godiva (depending on if they are a drinker)
mini 5’7 photobook of our friendship? -is this dumb?
Thoughts? I have until May and have only bought the robes so I have time for suggestions, thank you!

All of these gifts sound great to me. I don’t see how feelings would get hurt from any of this.

Well, I think it’a a decent gift. I personally would not wear the robe ever again (I already have a couple, and don’t need more) and I have a million wine glasses already. I don’t wear statement jewlery, but you know if your girls do or don’t!

Karebear53015: I think those are great ideas and the photo book is sweet 🙂
As a bridesmaid I’ve never received a gift that didn’t have something to do with the wedding, so kudos!

I think this is amazing! Personally, where I come from we may get one to two small items like a neckalce, earrings or a small clutch. I realize some brides do way more for their BM’s. I like your ideas though. The robes sound cute, and I thought about doing that for mine. However, I think I am going to do white button up shirts and cute monogrammed boxer shorts from etsy for everyone to get ready in! Hope this helps.

FallBride14: oh my gosh these are too cute! I already ordered my robes 🙁 but if I didn’t these are fantastic!
Thanks for the advice/thoughts everyone!

I think this is a great idea! I just got a monogramed robe yesterday and I will never wear it again after the wedding. I’m also engaged, so I wish it would’ve had my new initials so I could possibly wear it again…and it was the only thing we got. I would have loved to get all the other gifts!

Your ideas are great!! I was a bridesmaid at a wedding a few weeks ago, and the bride paid for our hair and gave each of us a small pendant necklace to wear at the wedding (and to keep). I was relieved that she paid for our hair-dos ’cause the dresses we wore were $150+ that we paid ourselves, and having the bride pay for the hair-dos helped with my budget.
