I have 9 Bridesmaid or Best Man, but they are doing a lot for me and helping out.. for example: my Maid/Matron of Honor is a florist and her mom works for a huge florist company down here in FL that helped do Donald Trumps last wedding, Kendra’s, Khloe Kardashians wedding, etc. And her mom and the two owners of the florist are doing all my personals for cost of materials (the hotel is RIGHT by the port where the ships come in daily for fresh flowers), flowers cost the florist companys anywhere from 5cents to 40cents a flower (if they get it directly from the ship and not a distributor).  All my Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets, MOH’s, and mine + the guys’ boutinierres (spelling?), mothers’ corsages are going to cost in total…… $17.75 !!! No charge for labor..plus they are doing a lot of things complimentary- like some of the linen, the sweatheart table decor, etc.  Another, her Uncle is a videographer and I don’t know if he is even charging me, if anything, $150 extra to have it on skype for our families in Europe to see live, plus the 3 blu-ray quality CDs… etc. So I am going a bit overboard for them… here are some of the gifts they are getting…

– hair & airbrush makeup done on location the day of

– Each will have one of these hangers to hang their Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses on in my suites HUGE closet so they can tell the difference right away, and keep forever…

– a pair of Solemates since the wedding is going to be outside and they have to walk in grass, sand, and on tile

– hair towel for the night before/day of….

– Monogrammed robes with matching slippers.. I’m not a huge fan of having “BM” or “MOH” written anywhere, so I’m going to have it written on the back of the straps that ties it (cute for pictures) and get extras so they can put plain 1s in it to use after (and since I’m in white all day, I’m going to wear dark purple and they will all wear lilac or white):

– I am going to have all my 9 Bridesmaid or Best Man sign the bottom of my heels with my dress on and take a picture.. and afterwards send it to them to put it in this frame:

– I’ll ask each girl and I will either get them comfy, personalized flip flops to wear to dance in at the reception or ballet slippers:

– O.P.I. nail polishes to pick from to wear day of, with pedi kit

– MAC eye shadows in the 4 packs to touch up if needed

– Having the jeweler make either a bracelet, necklace, or pair of earrings based on each girls preference using amethysts and crystals

– depending on their personality I’m getting them  a makeup monogrammed travel bag, a nice monogramed jewelery travel bag, or a monogrammed flask..;)

-and to put it all in, a huge really nice quality beach tote… since my wedding is located on the beach!!!

 

And one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man has it in with Juicy and it getting use all purple colored juicy tracksuits, and having them monogramed with our initials on it, and in the inner part of the hoodie it will have me and the Fiance name with wedding date, with a matching tank under that says Bridesmaid or Best Man or Maid/Matron of Honor or bride…and is paying for all of that..plus..her family owns a spa and from now until the week after the wedding, is giving the girls their pick of a massage, facial, skin/body treatment, mani/pedi, or cut/style or cut/highlights.

I bought my girls makeup, a wristlet, and a French manicure set! I spend $10 per girl but it was at least a $20 value. Details HERE.

For the day of, I got my girls umbrellas (in case in rains) and I got a great deal on pashminas (in case its cold) here:

I’ve also gotten them each a small Yankee Candle in various autumn scents but the main gift for each will be a custom photo make-up case from here:

I’m going to make “shemergency” kits out of each – put in things like emery boards, nail clippers, tide stick, lip balm, little Tylenol packets, a few band aids, handy wipes, those little Crest one use tooth brushes, little folding brush with compact mirror, etc. 

I’m putting everything in a fall harvest basket that I’m going to decorate with a little ribbon and maybe some decoupage.

I might get each girl one additional personalized gift but haven’t decided yet but I am having fun putting it all together for them!
