I’m thinking of getting my girls personalized picture frames (Walmart photo studio does them), and then at the wedding the photographer will take a picture of me with each other girsl to go in the frames.

It sounds  like you’ve already done A LOT! $50 for their dress, hair and make up, and the clutches is a lot so far. Maybe just include the flip flops for dancing that night?

I think what you already are getting them is wonderful! No need to get anything else 🙂

I’m on a budget, and my wedding is pearl themed, so I bought a bunch of real pearl beads (Freshwater pearls) and strung each of them pearl necklaces to wear for the wedding and I’m making them each a clutch using purse frames bought from etsy seller Bitsandpurses.  I’m going to use different fun patterned yellow fabric to (sort of) match our wedding colors.  I thought about doing totes from lands end cause i love them myself, but its not really in the budget.

It sounds like you’ve already purchased enough, honestly. Money toward their dresses and their hair and make-up covered? That’s enough of a gift, too, but you’ve also added a clutch into the mix which is crazy generous!

Personally, I’m not a fan of the initial tote bag. I probably would think it’s cute for the wedding day, but after that, the chances of me using it are slim (just not my style). If you think you really want to give them more, maybe put a gift card to a restaurant/store in the clutch that you know they like? Or maybe a lip gloss for each girl? Sephora.com has a “trial size” section on their site, so maybe you could stock up on a few smaller beauty products for each girl?

Just some ideas!

Use febreze fabric!!! I used it on my couches that were in storage in a garage for like a year, and it worked awesome! 🙂

Wow, you’re hugely generous. I think that’s enough personally. I only have a Maid/Matron of Honor and I’ll probably get her a clutch and a shawl to wear and use at the wedding if she wants.

A fun gift that doesn’t need to cost so much is stationery. I personally love Felix Doolittle‘s work. If you have friends with all different interests, he has dozens of beautiful watercolor illustations – there’s something to suite everyone.

They’re very sophisticated but also light hearted.

Hope that helps!

Throw a lipgloss (or other product) from MAC in there.  If you’re worried about color, choose something light and nude-ish.  Choose a gloss with a name that reminds you of each girl.  MAC has the cutest names for their products.  One of my favorite eyeshadows is called StyleSnob.  I’m pretty sure that describes 1 out of 4 girls everywhere!

I agree with Mrs. Green, add a gloss and eye shadow to the clutch and your set.  If eye shadow is too hard to pick, maybe nail polish is easier.
