After our rehearsal on Fridayya bridesmaids and I will be going to the salon for nails and bonding. I’m also making a gift bag for each bridesmaid. Inside they will receive a bottle of Chardonnay and a bottle of white Zinfandel, (leftover from our wedding shower favors with our custom wine label), an oragami owl crystal pendant with a charm to represent how I know each girl, a robe to get ready in, and also their jewelery for the wedding day which is real pearl dangle earrings and a three layer freshwater pearl necklace to match. I’m also hiring a massage therapist to come to my suite at 10am and give each girl a full massage before hair and makeup. I hired a stylist and makeup artist to do the four bridesmaids. I was also thinking of getting my photographer to get a few god shots of each girl and frame it and give them their pictures as a thank you gift later on with their family or husbands. I’m really excited for this day and these girls deserve to be pampered. As for our groomsman, our cigar roller is going to get each groomsman a full cigar box and the stuff that goes with it, with their names engraved on the outside of the box. What is everyone else doing for their bridesmaids or groomsmen and is anyone doing anything extra special for them? What creative ideas have you come up with? And if anyone has been a bridesmaid, what was the best gift you recieved?

ForeverAndEverAfter: Those sound like awesome gifts!
My girls gifts are half the same and half different.
I got them all personalized wire hangers
As well as pearl earring studs and bracelets.
Then I got them all individual gifts.
Flask for my party girl bm
Tea set with personalized mug and friendly hankie reminder for one of my more emotional bms hah
Personalized picture frames, gourmet coffee, travel mug, statement necklace. These are some more of the individual gifts based on who they are. I also got each Bridesmaid or Best Man the ‘stress releif’ line from bath and body works to give to them for throwing my bridal shower, they’re working hard! I’m paying for a room the night before and their hair to be done.
I have 5 BMs.

i am skipping a bridal party and just have my sister as my Maid/Matron of Honor. I am paying for hair and makeup, nails, spray tan, dress, shoes, handbag, jewelry, and whatever else comes up. It’s going to end up being like $3k so am not getting her some random stuff, that’s enough for me.

I have six BMs.
We arent’ getting married until next June, but I at least have their “big” gift covered. I bought them each a Kate Spade clutch that looks like this:
Sometime before the wedding, I’m also thinking about getting them all stemless wine glass tumblers! They will be great for the morning of the wedidng because we are having a mimosa bar and no one will want to ruin their makeup. All of my girls also love the beach so these are great for the future, too!
I’m going to get them each some nail polish and a file in their favorite colors
I also might get them some jewelry and personalized hangers….I’m just not sure yet!

ForeverAndEverAfter: You are such a generous bride!! All of those things are incredibly sweet. I have 7 gals, and am paying for hair/makeup on the big day. I also got them personalized waffle robes in wedding colors to get ready in and necklace/earrings to wear for the wedding. I’m kind of a super shopper and lucked out on sales! In addition, I got them each tervis tumblers with matching lids and their names on them- I wanted them to have something practial they can use after the wedding that wasn’t wedding related. All of my girls are big coffee/tea drinkers so it seemed appropriate.

I’m doing this Vera bag and filling them. I got them for $16 each. It’s plastic lined, so good for the beach or gym. I figured that would be better than a tiny purse, and I can’t really afford to fill 4 $60 totes. Not sure what I’ll put inside yet, but it’ll be different for each.

ForeverAndEverAfter: Sounds good. My Maid/Matron of Honor is a guy so I got him a nice leather messenger bag and some really great creams. Bridesmaid or Best Man1 I got a Coach purse with a purple beaded charm bracelet. Bridesmaid or Best Man2 I got a pink leather Nine West bag, book lover’s journal and pink beaded charm bracelet.

I bought them tote bags with their name, title, and date on there. I will put Flip flops for the big day (when their feet get tired) little make up bags that I will fill with eye liner, Eye Shadow, lipstick, make up brushes. I was going to put a bunch of things for the big day in the tote. Deoderant, hairspray, a new brush, wine, body spray….things of that sort. Then I was going to buy them each a flower to put in their hair.

I think I’m doing a shirt for each girl, and maybe a gift card, but after that I’m stumped! This will be FSIL’s, as a T and not a tank. She graduates less than a month after the wedding, so this will let me give it to her a bit early so she can actually get some use out of it during senior week.
