@jesssamesssa:  I read recently (and I’m sure SOMEONE will disagree) that anything that is part of your wedding (hair/makeup/dress) does not “count” as a bridesmaid gift.

I do not think it would be inappropriate to ask them to split the cost of the hair and makeup with you, as many brides have their girls pay for that 100% themselves…just don’t mention you’re using the money to get them gifts ๐Ÿ™‚

As far as what to buy, I would shop for each of them like it was their birthday: one likes books? Barnes & Noble gift card. Girly stuff? Sephora.

@jesssamesssa:  I’m a freelance MUA as well, but I am choosing to do my own makeup because I’m not flying anyone I trust to our Destination Wedding ๐Ÿ™‚ Honestly, you know your group of friends better than I do: they may think the hair and makeup is an awesome gift by itself ๐Ÿ™‚

I got them a small bag at Forever 21 (reusable and just as cheap as a gift bag), a etsy robe in their favorite color, an amethyst bracelet that can be worn at the wedding and after, a hanger with their name on it (just because it was a GREAT deal $4.99) and some cute flip flops with jewels on them from Target for the reception.  I’m also paying for a pre-wedding mani pedi, but that’s also for throwing me a shower. 

They are buying or have bought their own dress, hair and makeup.

I just purchased my girls matching necklaces as their gifts. Yes, they are to wear for the wedding, but they are a classic pearl necklace which will definitely be worn countless times. I found a great business who custom makes bridesmaids sets at a very reasonable cost so I still have money in my budget to teake them out for a very nice lunch and manicure before the wedding ๐Ÿ™‚
