I think you get what you can afford, I think what  you have is good enough. If I were your BM, I would be happy with that. I didn’t buy my BM’s dresses because I have 7 of them, but I bought their jewelry, I got them clutches for Express (with a coupon), cups with their initial on it and lotion, spray, hand sanitzer for Bath and Body Works.

We had to buy our own dresses and shoes for my cousin’s wedding, but she gave us all a pearl necklace as a gift to wear with our dresses on the day.

I’m giving everyone their presents at the rehearsal dinner, general rule of thumb though is not to “gift” them anything they have to wear for YOUR day – it may not be their style, or they may not wear them again.  Shop like it’s their birthday.

I’m not even doing that much. I bought them embroidered totes that I plan on filling with bath and body works stuff, a tervis cup, maybe some mini liquor bottles. I am contemplating the name hangers.

I’ve been in three weddings and I honestly can’t remember what they gifted me. I think it’s the thought that counts. Something that shows your appreciation.

Normally I’d say that if you’re buying them something that is for your wedding, it’s really not a gift to them. But I think your case is different since you’re paying for their dresses and that isn’t the norm (well, it’s not here anyways, not sure about Australia). With my girls who I ended up having to pay for their dresses, I just got them a card and a cute necklace I thought they’d like.

how about a nice champaign flute, wrapped in cellopane with some chocolates and the BM jewelry? They could even take them with them for getting ready for their champaign and to nibble on? Or a nice little purse hanger?
