Depends on how much you want to spend?  I have 7 girls and for their gifts I put $75 toward each of their gowns, ordered super cute custom clutches from an Etsy seller (each girl gets a different bag), am making them each a personalized necklace with a charm of their initial, and will probably add a Bridesmaid or Best Man survival kit type thing and maybe some Old Navy flip flops.  I’ll probably end up spending ~$120 on each but I just love giving gifts lol.  If I didn’t put money towards their dresses I would have gotten them spa gift certificates.  I wanted to get them something they could use other than just for my wedding.

Well, I did a few different things. I ordered them jewelry from Kohls, and got a great deal. About 10 dollars per girl. I also made them handpainted wine glasses with their names, tote bags and tee shirts. I have entertained the idea of beach towels since its a destination wedding but we shall see!  🙂

I have 6 Bridesmaids and am paying for their hair and make up the day of. I also plan on buying them all classic style pjs with button down tops for us to wear that morning before dresses.

@Hunnybear- I really like the idea of necklaces with their initial- so cute!

I am also trying to figure out what to get my bridesmaids…a friend of mine paid for 1/2 of the price of her bridesmaids  hair to be done for the wedding and bought all of their jewlery for the wedding

All of those ideas sound great!   I have 8 BMs and know that I will be buying them bracelets and maybe matching earings.  That will probably be around $60 each. I feel so badly that all the girls are buying their own dresses ($200), staying in the hotel, ($170 a night if they don’t split it with someone) and will be getting their hair done (probably around ($75?).  I REALLY want to help out with the hair or at least pay for them all to get fake eyelashes or something like that.  I just don’t know what the normal is to spend……plus we didn’t budget this in so its all stright out of my already really strained pocket!     Ugh.
