I hope none of my BMs read this site…

I got them each a small jewelry box with their names engraved on it ($16 each) and piece of fashion jewelry to put inside the jewelry box (between $25-$35 each), so my Bridesmaid or Best Man presents were $50 or less.

I know that the Bridesmaid or Best Man gift is generally a thank you type gift, but I haven’t really needed a whole lot of help from my BMs so I’m ok with giving them just a little something. I think if I relied on them for a lot of help with the wedding, I would’ve spent a little more money and got them nicer gifts. But I think they’ll enjoy them even though they weren’t outrageously priced. 🙂

I stalked Sephora for sales, and I got them the Stila Travel Palette for $10, which has four eyeshadows and one multi-use color, a lip gloss for $3.50, and shower gel that smells really good for $3 I believe.

I also got them totes from Forever 21 for $1.50, water bottles from Old Navy for $1 and jewelry (earrings and necklace) for $3.50 from Forever 21 as well.

Sales rock my world :).

I got a great deal on earrings on overstock! They are periodot for $25. I will buy earring boxes for $2 and they will look like I spent at least $50 because that is what these earrings go for everywhere else (at a minimum)

I got my girls: (5 of them)– I think this is all of it!

Bag to carry things in the day of the wedding from Hobby Lobby ($3.99 each);

Red Pashmina to wear ($5 each, Maurices – half off sale) – Minnesota wedding in January haha

Necklace and earrings ($10 for necklace, $8 for earrings – Some I got while on sale for less than that);

Travel size lotion and shower gel from Bath & Body Works (3 for $10, bought enough for 5 girls);

Pocket mirror with their initial on it (from Etsy – $3 each)

Mini-Miche bag for each girl (Gift from my Future Mother-In-Law who sells them!!)

Special bracelet for my Maid/Matron of Honor ($14)

So I’m under $50 for each girl! Then I plan on putting a special note to each in their bags!

My bridesmaids are my sisters who both live across the country from me…  they are coming for the whole week before the wedding so I got them “bridesmaid” t-shirts, a piece of turquoise jewelry (the wedding is in Arizona) I also made earrings out of sixpence for them, and then some fun heart glasses… Not sure how much I actually spent….
