    @swanchai:  I have decided if I do the robe to just do their name or initials and probably on the front. Idk if I personally would wear something again that said bridesmaid.

    I would do their monogram instead of their name and agree with PP, if it says “Bridesmaid” it is for the day of and therefore not a gift – when are they going to wear it again?  They don’t want to think of themselves as “Bridesmaid” constantly.

    Robes were part of the gift for our bridesmaids and I just did their first initial on the front.  They loved them and I know at least some of them wear them.

    If you give them something that says Bridesmaid then it can only be used for the wedding day. In that instance it wouldn’t really count as a gift since it has no possible use outside of your wedding. Jewelry is fine as long as it suits each girl’s tastes and style and can be worn again. Go for just their name and they get to use it as long as possible.

    I would just do first initial or first name. Last names may change 🙂

    If you do the dressing gowns the first name is a good choice for embroidery. It would be nice to get different colours/patterns though so they are personal to each Bridesmaid or Best Man.

    I like first name, and I also got my girls coach clutches (which they loved) if you’re looking for another idea.  They were on clearance at an outlet mall so ended up being $40 each. 🙂

    I think robes with their first initial on the front would be really cute and wearable past the wedding day. I’d love to get that as a gift!

    I think the brooches sound nice, but if it’s something they have to wear for the wedding, I don’t really count that as a gift. They might never wear them again.
