    Is that your picture of the knot bracelet or the etsy one? I’d like to see how it sticks up.

    Personally I prefer the knot but if you aren’t happy with it maybe you shouldn’t give it. Why not go for a necklace, maybe a simple natural pearl drop, that way it is lovely and they aren’t too expensive

    I guess the first photo is the one the seller provided; do you have a photo of what it actually looked like? Is it really so bad that you can’t use it? I wonder, because I think it’s so cute on the first photo and something I would definitely wear again if I were one of your Bridesmaid or Best Man. The second one, not so much… It looks like one of those bracelet’s that will just be in the way all the time.

    @Ms Flamenco:  In this case, I’d probably just make the jewelry for my girls.  This cost me less than $10 to make for my girls, plus I was able to customize it to their styles.

    I think the first knot one looks nice in the picture but if you think it looks cheap I’d look for something else.  If you have 3 weeks left maybe just look for something local at a mall so you know for sure what you’re getting.  I’ve never bought anything from the “the knot” but if it does end up looking cheap you’re down to crunch time.

    I don’t count jewelry as bridesmaid gift if they are expected to wear it at the wedding. And I don’t really wear bracelets. Do your girls? If so – Think about the last bracelet you saw each of your girls wearing and get them a similar style.

    I agree you need to go local. There is this store here called mamas minerals. They have so many beautiful stone pendants and beads. You can walk into the store and come out with amazing, and really inexpensive jewelry that is unique. I got one girl a moonstone (she is very into natural healing, and it is good for workmen problems, meditation, etc), one girl an arrowhead necklace (archaeology major) and my sister a cool mottled gray stone ring. I also got them each a worry stone.  That store has way too much stuff. I would try finding a store like that (search mineral or bead store). For those things, I spent $13 for three girls. 

    I also agree that you should individualize the gifts

    @Ms Flamenco: I voted to purchase the new pearl bracelet from the knot.com and have their first initial engraved on them, they are much nicer than the bow bracelet.

    Give each bridesmaid the bow bracelet as a gift for the bachlorette party!

    Give the other bracelet for their bridesmaid gift at the rehearsal dinner but put the note originally from the “knot” barcelet in the box with these bracelets! 🙂

    @Ms Flamenco: I actually really like the knot bracelet! I think it’s cute and doesn’t look cheap at all!
