At this point I am thinking of getting these earrings (or something similar) which they would wear on the day of, and hopefully want to wear after, too!:
And also a “fold over clutch” like one of these (each bridesmaid’s would be slightly different size/pattern etc:
And depending where we are at with our budget as our date gets closer I will likely throw in paying for some of their hair/makeup or a spa gift card that they could use after the wedding.
What do you think?? Would you like this as a gift?

@Bri1o: Those are not gifts. They are props for your wedding.

@merpitymerp: They can still be gifts. I’ve been given earrings as a bridesmaid from the bride to wear on her wedding day and I thought it was a lovely gesture. I also wore them again.
OP – I think you’re being very thoughtful and generous! Love the earrings.

I think both are pretty! I would write a heartfelt card and put it inside each of their bags to make it more personal.

@merpitymerp: The purses are not for the wedding at all. The earrings, yes are for the wedding but I tried to pick a style that could easily be worn after the wedding as well.
@calisunshine3404: Thank you 🙂 I kind of want a pair of the earrings for myself too haha
@MissLibra: Thanks! I think I will do that for sure! 🙂

I like em! The clutches are super cute and fun. I always like getting stuff like that that I might admire in a store but never buy for myself.

@Bri1o: I’d like it, esp. the fold over clutch! Where did you find those?
@merpitymerp: I completely disagree! The past two weddings that I’ve been in, my “gift” has been the jewelry that I wear the day of. If they buy it, and I can save my money/spend it else where, how is that not a gift?

I love both! And actually, would be so appreciative if you could share where you found both, as I’m looking for something similar in both categories!
Forget the haters…I’d like to be your Bridesmaid or Best Man 🙂

@Bri1o: That chevron clutch is adorable! Yes the earrings may be for your wedding but they are really cute and definitely something that can be worn again. I really like these ideas.
If you don’t think it is enough you could throw in a Starbucks gift card or something like that to make it extra non-wedding related.

@Treejewel19: Good idea 🙂 I was thinking the spa gift card but I could even go smaller and toss in a $20 card for somewhere else and put it in the clutch!
