- Wedding: April 2013
I wanted to post on a topic that I relied on other Bees for. Bridesmaids Gifts.
I was a Bridesmaid once. I had so much fun helping the Bride, who also happened to be my roommate and recommender of this site! She purchased the BMs Coach wristlets in our favorite colors and her Maid/Matron of Honor a nicer purse they eyeballed on a recent trip they took together. I love that Coach wristlet, i still use it to this day. She also paid for our hair.
I wanted to get my girls something that was thoughtful, personal and the inner spender in my wanted something expensive, but alas the budget would not allow. I walked through countless stores requesting nearly every sales clerk’s opinion on what i should purchase or ideas. I liked the idea of just buying a gift for each girl, there are no rules saying everyone has to get the same thing. I felt for me this would be much more work than anticipated.
Finally my eyes laid upon these beauties: http://www.fossil.com/en_US/shop/women/categories/sale/wallets_accessories/key_per_triple_pouch-sl4021p.html?parent_category_rn=331181&departmentCategoryId=331097&beginIndex=0&pageSize=1000&pn=c&cm_vc=378085&imagePath=SL4021016 This is one on sale and a bit different than mine. The middle bag on all mine are a solid color with little birds. All four are different patterns and colors. I looove them, and i hope the girls will too. I filled the largest bag with wedding day essentials: tissues, nail file, floss, mints, band aids, hair pins, hair ties, hair spray, lotion, and hand sanitizer. If the budget will allow i hope to be able to pay for their hair or nails.
If I had planned better i might have purchased these instead: http://www.fossil.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=12052&langId=-1&catalogId=25005&partNumber=ES3221P&cm_vc=PDPZ1 I could die with how much i love these watches and the beautiful colors they come in! I hope this post helps someone who may be stuck on ideas for their special ladies!
