So let me start off by saying that I have SEVEN bridesmaids. I wanted to get them jewelry, including earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. I think I can only afford to get them earrings, so would it be bad if I just got them earrings and let them wear whatever necklaces/bracelets they want? Or say, just wear my earrings, and whatever bracelets they want?
Or just have them wear the earrings and no other jewelry, in order to keep it uniform? They all have different dresses, so I don’t see a big deal in them having different necklaces/bracelets, but I don’t know if that would look weird in all the pictures.

You could do any of the above!! It’s generous to get them any jewelery.
It definitely won’t look weird in pics for them to have different jewelry. I wanted mine to match so badly all along, and then right before, I freaked out that they were too matching rather than being each girl’s individual style, so there’s pros and cons to each.
I ended up getting my BMs necklaces, earrings, and bracelets, but I got them cheap on Etsy.
For the record, I didn’t notice their jewelry at all when I got the photos back.

@brookiebug0113: I think that it isn’t a problem at all to have them wearing different jewelry. Keep in mind that some may choose nothing at all if you say wear whatever you want. I know I’m not a big jewelry person and unless someone gave me something specifically to wear, I wouldn’t wear any jewelry.

@brookiebug0113: For one wedding I was in, we were just given earrings and told not to worry about the rest. One bridesmaid wore a necklace, the rest didn’t. Not a big deal at all.
Whether they match or not, your BMs will look fabulous together!

Earrings will be totally fine, I battled on this and in the end didn’t want to only get my gals jewelry that might not be their taste. I found on Ebay I could get adorable kate spade gold bows with a dangling pearl for 7 DOLLARS A PAIR. So each girl got a pair, she got a monogrammed bridesmaid tervis tumbler, monogrammed koozie, monogrammed wristlet “survival” kit which I put each pair in. They LOVED their gifts and the earrings!
I didn’t tell them what else to wear, the kept on their sentimental every day pieces like rings, david yurman bracelets, one girl had a silver delicate tiffany DBTY necklace and I thought it just made them unique and stylish and it all coordinated nicely.
