I have so many trinkets from being a Bridesmaid or Best Man over the years, that honestly, I’d LOVE a gc to my favorite restaurant!

(if you don’t mind them seeing how much you spent, that is)

Yes a gift card is fine.  I think paying for their dresses was more than enough. Mine paid for their own dresses but I got them nice gifts in return.

If you paid for their dresses that is a gift in itself.  From what I understand it is standard for the bridesmaids to pay for their own dresses unless the bride offers, and then it can be considered a gift.

But if you are going to get them something else I think the charm bracelet or the restaurant gift card would be good gifts.  Think of it like you are buying a gift for their birthday, what would you buy them?  I had looked at the cheaper bracelets you were talking about and I thought the same thing, just kind of doubting their quality for the price.  You could always check the fashion jewelry at a department store and see if you can find a good deal there.

I think a dress is more than enough of a present, a gift card would be great too. I think something like home made cookies would be nice, you’ve already spent a lot!

I think the gift card is a great idea. That is more than most people spend anyways! I gave my girls jewelry to wear (earrings, bracelet and broach).

For my Maid/Matron of Honor, since she did more – I gave her a photo album with pictures of us though out our friendship and the funny thing is – she did the same for me lol

Here are some other ideas 

Painted (personalized) wine glasses, A set of PJ’s (Victoria Secret has great ones), Picture albums or frames, or something that they are in to – so each gift is different- if one likes to read get her a new book, one likes wine – get her a nice bottle of wine- one likes to workout- a new workout outfit etc etc…

Buying the girls’ dresses is a major gift! Something small and personal would be just fine to round off the gifts!
