I think these are wonderful gifts!  I am doing similar gifts.  Im trying to come up with ways to package them.  Are you putting everything in the tote bag?

Well as for the tote bags, I think skip the monogramming. I know I would never reuse something that had my name or initialsomething on it. That’s a little too junior for me. But you know your girls best. Is the monogramming something they’re into?

Also, I don’t think you can count the robes or pashminas as gifts because 1 is for your pictures and the other EVERYONE is getting. But I think the makeup bag and jewelry is nice.

I think that is a great gift. 

I did makeup bag/clutches in the wedding colors (mint and gray) from etsy, in those I put a little lotion and hand sanitizer in a beachy fragrance (we are getting married on the beach), a pair of earrings that they can wear for the wedding, and an eos mint chapstick. I also got them mint tank tops, but rather than doing initials or the typical “bridesmaid” thing, I had the etsy shop put the location of our wedding and a date below, so it’s kind of wedding-y but something they could wear again, almost like a traveling souvenir.

I am doing monogramed tote and button up shirt and spa themed stuff the day before. That way they can wear them in getting ready pics. 

The jewelry for the wedding I will give them the day of.  I think I will have a box with each girls name on it.  

I also have wooden hangers for their gowns that have their name on it, and A handmade thank you card.

I did not know that you also have to get them something personal and unique as

tay.g:  I got my girls some similar things, including the buttondown (Southern girls love a monogram), hanger, alcohol, and Kendra Scott earrings. I also got them 2 IT cosmetics make up brushes. They feel so good, and they are really lovely. Everyone loves good fluffy brushes! I also got them the Sigma brush cleaning thing.

I added a NARS Orgasm blush, a cult classic… looks good on everyone! And a small eyeshadow palette by Smashbox. I figured people hate to spend loads of money on makeup and brushes, so I think the girls thought they were real treats!

Lokie85:  Basically the rule of thumb is if you’re giving them something to wear or use for the actual wedding, it’s not a gift. So like robes that you want everyone to wear the morning of for pictures. It’s totally fine to give them those things, but in that case it isn’t a gift. It’s a picture prop. So always make sure to give them something that ISN’T related to the wedding as well.

Can I suggest including a letter to each girl? Just to say how much you love them and how much it means to you that they are there for you on your special day?

Doesn’t have to be particularly long, but it’s something heartfelt that costs nothing to include and they will treasure it forever 🙂

I think everything you got sounds amazing! I would love to get something like that as a bridesmaid gift 🙂 I got my girls a kate spade bracelet, a monogram “to go” wine cup, a bottle of wine with a custom name label on it (love etsy!!) and a decorative letter for their first initial.
