I was just wondering what everyone was doing for the bridesmaid’s gifts. My Fiance thinks I’m crazy and says that we don’t need to get them anything. I think it’s mainly because when we were part of a wedding they didn’t have any budget to get their bridal party anything. I was thinking of stealing msmonicas idea and get them lightweight jackets w/ their name and bridesmaid iron on for getting ready, sandals from oldnavy for the end of the night & a bridesmaid wedding day survival kit. Do you think that’s too much? I told my mom and she said “wow you’re going all out for them!” I laughed and said that I will be finding the best deals so I don’t have o spend that much really.

I only have one, my Maid/Matron of Honor (who is my sister). I keep getting her little things here and there so I think I’ll do a gift basket. So far:
-silver plated jewelry box with her monogram engraved
-sterling silver ring (its very dainty and pretty and she can wear on day of)
-havianas flip flops in gold (we both love havianas and she can wear them later on at the reception if she wants)

For the survival kit I’m going to include these hankies from an irish gift store here in AZ. If you’re not into the saying, you could get monogrammed hankies, I think that would be a really cute idea!
Bridesmaid Hankie, $12.95
For the Bridesmaid
Irish Heartfelt Hankie
100% Linen, White Lace
Hankie with White Shamrocks
A Bridesmaid is someone very special
Your qualities of loyalty, compassion and grace,
Are the reasons you were chosen
To stand in this important place.
Close by the bride,
As she gives her heart for life,
You are there again by her side,
Sharing the moment she becomes a wife.
Tears of joy may fall,
This heartfelt hankie will catch them all.
And along with the memory of this special day.
For you to cherish and tuck away.

I am gifting my BMs spa treatments during our bachelorette weekend. Before I decided on this, I was thinking of putting together little gift bags for them that would have included Havaianas, MAC lip gloss and nail polish, and a cute tank top or tee-shirt. But…I kind of wanted to spend a little more than I normally would have because they are taking me to San Diego for the weekend for the bachelorette party, are paying for their hotel rooms during the wedding weekend, flying into town, bought their Bridesmaid or Best Man dress, etc. I know I don’t have to do the spa treaments (all the Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts I’ve ever gotten were things like flip flops, jewelry, etc.) but I feel like because they are really spending a lot of money, I should. Either way, as a Bridesmaid or Best Man I have always appreciated whatever the bride gave me — it’s the thought that counts! I’m sure that your BMs will love their gifts. 🙂

I bought beach bags on clearance for $3 each and I’m going to bring them in to have them embroided with each of the girls names. Then I’m going to fill them each with…
~A Purse Hanger
~Flip Flops for later in the reception
~Jewelry Rolls (they are for travel to hold jewelery)
~Earrings & Necklace to wear day of
~Personalized Wine Glasses
~Mini card-wallets from Lands End
~A Loafa, bath fizz, and shower gel
Then for my sisters (MOH & MatronOH) I’m also buying these personlized photo frames that say “Maid of Honor” & “Matron of Honor” with their Names and then an inscribed message from me.
I was trying to go with items they could use and appreciate outside of my wedding, really gifts for them, for being awesome bridesmaids!

I got three of my bridesmaids this clutch:
and I’m going to get them each a pair of fun earrings and maybe some small makeup item.
My sister, who’s my Maid/Matron of Honor, is getting a pair of majoraca pearl earrings and I think I’m going to get her a spa treatment as well (a massage or something).

I have 4 BM’s and I bought their dresses as part of a gift ($100 each). I also bought personalized beach bags and planning to buy cute flip flops & pedicure kits with OPI nail polish. I have the dresses with me as I ordered it for them. We’re going to South Beach for my bachelorette getaway, so I’m going to put all those items in each BM’s bag and have those awaiting my girlies in the hotel rooms when they arrive 😀

I got all the girl’s shoes and then also a necklace/earring set. My Maid/Matron of Honor also will get a bracelet that matches mine for the wedding but is smaller. That is what I have now…not sure if I’m going to do anything else or not. Suggestions???

Since we are having a Destination Wedding in Vegas I got my girls some of those hard shell suitcases. They are all in pretty little colors and I am also thinking about getting them their shoes or some jewelry.
