I realized from reading this board that Fiance and I have yet to brainstorm ideas to gift our dear BMs and GMs.
Anyone here can share gift they have done for theirs or things they plan on giving to their bridal party for their help?
Any idea/suggestions for both Bridesmaid or Best Man and Groomsmen will be appreciated. Thanks!

For my girls, I am buying robes, paying for pedicures (I’m not requiring any beauty things like professional hair/make up, I just thought this would be nice), paying for the house rental the night before the wedding, and preparing a brunch w/ mimosas the morning of the wedding.
For the boys, we are probably going to pay for a round of golf at some point during the wedding weekend, and we are still deciding on gifts, but we’re thinking these personalized grilling branders & nice bottles of scotch.

pedicures sounds like a great idea!

I got them really awesome wine glasses and beer mugs off of Etsy! The shop is called VinyleYours. They are reasonable priced and a nice quality. I got wine glasses for the bridal party and Moms. And beer mugs from all the groomsmen and dads.

My fiance is taking his men paintballing and buying them something like cuff links since they will most likely be needing them again in a year.
I bought my bridesmaids necklaces to wear during the ceremony (though they are personalized) and bookbags (they’re avid readers).

For my bridesmaids:
-Personalized totes from Zazzle.com (I found an image I liked for the bags, then put their name underneath it) They will also have a flower on 1 handle like the flowers I made for the flip-flops.
-I bought flip flops from old navy and jazzed them up for getting ready in and for the reception (see below)
-Glitter champagne flutes that I’m in the process of making. (they are going to be brown and blue glitter, and the brown is heavy on the bottom and fades half-way, and blue will be heaver in the brown and fade above it)
-One Bridesmaid or Best Man LOVES beer, and I am making her a beer stein instead of a champagne flute. I also purchased boxes from Michael’s that were on clearance to put the champagne glasses (and beer stein) in.
-I am making them each a necklace or bracelet (I haven’t decided yet) and putting them in a little wooden box that I used a wood burning tool to burn their names into the top of, and on the bottom of the inside of the box I burnt our wedding date. (no pic, sorry!)
-My older sister has been EXTREMELY helpful with vendors, so I got her a little extra something…
My day-of coordinator is a long-time extremely close family friend, and so I also got her a tote bag, champagne flute, and will be giving her this since she is basically a sister to me and we both refer to each other as sisters:
My Maid/Matron of Honor will be getting either this first one because we spill EVERYTHING to each other, or the second one because she is my Maid/Matron of Honor…I don’t know which yet, so if anyone has any opinions, let me know!!

Oh and I also made them all hangers with their names 🙂

I made my bridesmaids bracelets. I used simple supplies and tools from walmart, and made six bracelets for under $30. I think they turned out pretty good.
