My Maid/Matron of Honor is my baby cousin who’ve I’ve grown up with so she is getting better gifts than the other girls. I’m buying them all jewelry to wear and hers will be slightly more expensive and better quality. I’m also buying her a special charm to put on her Pandora because we both have one.

I bought all of my girls the same thing. They all got the jewelry the wore on the wedding day, a monogramed jewelry roll and a coach wristlet. My Maid/Matron of Honor received a slightly bigger bouquet to carry, so that’s how I had her stand out. Oh, and she held a crown over my head for 30 minutes of our ceremony haha…

My Maid/Matron of Honor is my sister and I am paying to have her hair done the day of in addition to the other gifts so she gets a little something extra without it being blatant to everyone.

Yes, the maid of honor (or honors in your case) typically get a better gift than your bridesmaids because she (they) does so much more for you than anyone of your bridesmaids.   Are they throwing you a bridal shower?   Think about all of the work that is going into the bridal shower alone, that warrants a bigger gift.

My girls are each getting the same thing as far as the gift is concerned but I’m planning on adding my MOH’s hair and makeup to my bridal package, which will add about $100 to the total.

Apparently MOH’s are supposed to have a fuller bouquet and a bigger present. I guess it just depends on your preference. One of my MOH’s is my sister, the other one is my best friend. I have to skimp on flowers so they get the same bouqet as everyone else (heck it may just be a one flower thing… who knows). And as far as presents go, I haven’t decided if I will give everyone the same thing, or different for each. But my budget is the same for all of them.

Both MOH’s are out of town and don’t have enough money to do anything extra anyway. They probably won’t be at any of my showers or my bachelorette party. So I don’t feel like I owe them anything bigger (don’t get me wrong… I’m not all about getting things). I’m just saying, they are my MOH’s because I love them and can’t imagine my wedding without them. I don’t expect them to do anything extra, just be there. Hopefully they don’t expect anything extra out of me either, cause budget is stretching as we speak!
