@jlynn1187:  Ooh, I love these options! I’m leaning towards #2, but I also love #1.  Good idea to do another side gift – I’d shy away from personalizing them (I think it’s harder to use personalized items), but it’s totally up to you!

I vote for 3 or 1. I like the uniqueness of 1, but I think 3 is more classic and when you revisit the photos in a few years that necklace will stand the test of time.

@jlynn1187:  The first is very similar to what I got my bridesmaid. My two maids of honor got the style of #1 with pearls and the flower offset (grey pearls, yellow flower) and my three bridesmaids will get the same pearls/flower but the flower centered on the necklace with two (or three? can’t remember) pearls on each side of it. I also got the single grey pearl dangle earrings.

I went through Lake Shore Creations on etsy, the woman’s name is Melissa and honestly I could write a book about what a great experience I had with her. She and I must have sent 50 messages back and forth nailing down the design of the jewelry/colors, etc. and she was kind and upbeat the whole time. Her comparable style necklace is more expensive than the #1 you posted but it looks like the one you posted has a plastic flower and the ones I got have nice metal handcrafted flowers that just look/feel a little nicer (but that’s personal preference). She also gives a 10% discount to all bridal ordrers (if you contact her) with  no minimum number. I was so pleased I went back and ordered my weddinge earrings through her.

ETA: I didn’t buy the earrings from her because they were $7 a pair for a single pearl dangly earring and that was too much for my five girls to stay in my budget. I got mine from Renee at Envy Gems Boutique on Etsy who was also incredible to work with on matching the color, charged me $3 per set and printed the earring backing cards with the girls’ names on them and included a surprise pair for me and a little note saying congrats on the wedding!

Hope this helps!

Take your wedding out of it. 

What gift would your girls like?  Would you be buying them these exact necklaces if it weren’t for your wedding?  Do they match each girls personal asthetic?

If the answers to these last two questions are no then this isn’t a gift for them.  It is a way to fufill your vision, and you should find something that is just for them.

I think I would be more likely to wear number 2 or number 3 again. I also just think they seem a bit more grown up than the first option. 🙂

@jlynn1187:  I like #3 the most (#2 is my second choice). Definitely buy them something neutral that they will wear again. Personally, I would never wear that first necklace ever again. If you still can’t decide, you should add a poll! Bees LOVE polls 🙂 I am actually getting my bridesmaids necklaces as well, but they have a delicate gold chain with a tiny sterling silver initial. I found them on Etsy, too!

I like #2. Definitely the most classy and rewearable.
