I think what you’re planning is perfect, the make-up paid for, the clutch, the note..all would make me feel appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚

Maybe you could purchase the lipstick that each one wears for the wedding so they can reapply when needed?


Other than that though I think you’ve got it covered personally, and the personalised note will really show most how much you’ve appreciated them.

I like the clutch and note and spa day for your Maid/Matron of Honor.  However, I’m in the camp that anything you buy for the wedding (hair, make-up, jewelry, shoes, etc.) doesn’t count as a gift.  The gifts don’t have to be a lot nor do they have to be matching – just something to show that you are grateful. =)  Honestly, I think the clutch, note, and spa day are enough.  You could certainly do a tote or hankie if you wanted to as well – just depends on your budget.

Your ideas are really sweet. What about giving them all a picture frame with a wedding photo once you get your photos? It wouldn’t be a gift at the wedding, but it would still be lovely down the road.

One thing that I tried to make sure happened (though it didn’t entirely) was to have the photographer take nice pictures of the wedding party and their significant others.  Then you can at the very least give them the digital copy, or give them a printed copy of the picture.  This is also a way to indirectly thank non-involved significant others of the groomsmen ๐Ÿ™‚


By far, the best thing is the personal notes, though.

I think that sounds good. I would be happy to receive that as a bridesmaid. You can also get some cheap gifts that everybody likes, such as lotions or bubble bath.
