So for my wedding I am paying for hair and makeup for my bridal party, which is costing me quite a bit of money. So I made all of my BMs and Maid/Matron of Honor infinity scarves out of grey jersey knit, and bought them a bottle of wine.
Is this a suffice gift? For some reason I am feeling really self conscious about it.

I have asked advice on this too and so many people seem so consumed in the fact that the gift is about size or the dollar amount, and this hsould not matter (not saying you are) Gifts should always be about “the thought that counts” And seems like people forget the bills required for a wedding! I love your gift dea.
Asking someone to stand up for you should be the ulitimate gift!
I am getting a picture frame with pic of me and Bridesmaid or Best Man with a thank you letter and getting a catered breakfast to our hotel room morning of 🙂

@jb20: That sounds like a great gift! I have seen so many different takes on bridesmaid gifts, but what it really comes down to is that you are getting them something to thank them for helping and being a part of your big day.
Some people may not see it this way, but I feel that it’s an honor to be asked to be in someones wedding, and getting a gift for doing so is just a bonus. I have never expected to be given a gift as a bridesmaid.
You could also think about putting together a photo album or cd of photos of you and your girls. I have lots of old photos of us from college, work, etc. and I think they will really enjoy having these, and as a bonus its a pretty inexpensive addition to the gifts
