I got my BMs this travel bag in medium from LL Bean, super convenient and they all love to travel: http://tinyurl.com/2tus7u, I will probably fill it with travel-size goodies as well.

I’m also fortunate that a good friend is a talented jewelry maker and is making fresh water pearl drop necklaces for each of the ladies in my bridal team!  Check out her site:  http://www.katessilverlining.com

I came across another wedding blogging site,and a bride posted a site called "mckaylasfavors.com" .She recommended a couple of ideal gifts for bridesmaides. So ,I checked it out and I found a cute "Picnic Backpack".It had a setting for four.I paired it with a piece of jewelry and my bridesmaides loved it,they were so excited.  If everything went as smooth as that ,I would not have been as stressed as I was!

 

                                                  Good Luck to future brides

I didnt like the cheezy "traditional" monogrammed bridesmaid totes and stuff, so I just paid for their dresses and got them matching faux-pearl necklaces. I also paid for their hair and makeup.

I kinda regretted it afterwards… I mean, I do love my BMs, but after shelling out over $250 on each girl, I expected at least some thoughtful gifts, but I was pretty disappointed with when I received a $30 bowl off our registry. I think I’m just stingy.

so my advice is, don’t go overboard with gifts! Give something that the girls would appreciate, but (in my own opinion) you shouldn’t spend more than you need – weddings are already too expensive in themselves and you dont need to spend all this money on something that may not be appreciated.

Bridesmaids are not suppose to give gifts by etiquette standards  – their gift to you is being in your wedding!

as for the Jiffy Bags…

one of the BM’s mom’s owns a screen printing/embr. company, so she’s going to do that for me. Any local place should let you bring in your item, you don’t have to purchase there.

I think that my Bridesmaid or Best Man gift might be a bit extravagant, but I LOVE these girls, and budgeted it in early…  We’re having a fall wedding, and before I bought my dress I bought the most amazing knee length white peacoat to wear over my dress, and then about 6 months later the same company came out with the exact coat (a little shorter) in brown (our colors are blue and brown!!!) So I bought (6) additional peacoats for my (5) bridesmaids and (1) jr bridesmaid.  They are going to love them, they will come in handy at the reception, Brown is a good everyday coat color, and they will make for some ADORABLE photos on wedding day!!!

I think the best gift I received being a bridesmaid was one of these this beautiful titanium rings with a genuine pink sapphire. We all called them our promise to be friends forever rings. I wear mine every day!

I wanted to give my BM’s something special that they wouldn’t normally buy for themselves.  I stumbled upon http://www.yoyosilver.com one day and they sell authentic Tiffany jewelry at a fraction of the cost.  I am buying each girl a tiffany bangle in silver.  Classic and elegant, I’m sure they’ll all get a lot of wear out of them.

my BMs are coming in from all over the US. i’m making each of them a little "emergency/survival kit" with things like a manicure set, deodorant, bandaids, hairspray, lipgloss, gum, etc. all tucked into red & black travel bags that came with a matching clutch. (you can google "bridesmaid survival kit" to get more suggestions)

i’m also getting each Bridesmaid or Best Man custom-designed chuck taylors and jewelry sets to wear with their dresses. and then stuffing all of that into cute canvas totes that i got on sale at bath & body works for only $10 each and they’re HUGE!

HTH!

I love the idea of a survival kit!

I’m leaning towards personalized bags for my girls as they are all so different and are at very different stages in their lives.

They will for sure all be getting custom (made by me) necklaces (none of them wear earrings!) to co-ordinate with their jewelry.
