I just need your advice on some presents I’m giving to my ladies on the wedding day..
For my Bridesmaid or Best Man and Maid/Matron of Honor I got them each a Victoria Secret robe and a pandora bracelet with a tea cup charm, because we are having a high tea wedding.
And for my FBILs Girlfriend who has been helping out, I also bought her a teacup charm as she already has the bracelet!
My question is, do I buy them more? I was thinking of giving them each a basket filled with goodies from davids tea and bath and body works and sephora, especially for the Girlfriend of my Future Brother-In-Law as she has helped out even more than my Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man at times!
Any advice would be appreciated! 🙂

I think a nice card with your heartfelt appreciation is all you need to add.

thank you! I’m so nervous to write their letters because there is so much to say and I want to say it right 🙂

I should also add, I’m paying for their hair and makeup! I know that isn’t a gift, because they are doing it to pamper for the wedding, but I don’t think they should have to pay!

I think bridesmaids gifts are getting a little out of hand, to be honest. You don’t need to get them giant gift baskets filled with stuff (most of which, from thins I’ve seen, is bridesmaid related and thus probably won’t get used again)…waste of money, In My Humble Opinion.
I got mine a robe (ie a prop for photos so not a “real” gift), a bracelet for the wedding that I know 100% they’ll wear again (so, still half for the wedding) and a cute clutch that is not related to the wedding. Plus a card and a bottle of homemade wine. As someone who loves to give gifts it can be tempting to go overboard, especially with all the bridesmaids baskets you see on Pinterest, but honestly I think it’s all too much.

that all sounds wonderful! I love to give gifts so this is really hard on me to stop buying things. I bought the bracelets forever ago so I keep forgetting how much I spent and I want to keep going! I just appreciate all theyve done and I feel like I will never be able to repay them for all their hard work!
