My Maid/Matron of Honor is my sister and has been supporting me through this whole wedding planning process since the beginning (two years ago!). But I know that she’s basically putting in the same amount of money as the other bridesmaids (I know this because I was her Maid/Matron of Honor last year and we have most of the same BMs). Should I get her a little something extra in her gift, or get her the same amount as the other BM’s? I don’t want the other girls to feel slighted, but like I said, my Maid/Matron of Honor has put up with daily emails for so long, and she’s been an amazing help.

When my sister gave her gifts to her attendants she did it in private, individually over lunch or coffee.
She got us all something different (jewellery) that she felt we would like best. So I have no idea what the Maid/Matron of Honor got.
I, however, probably will get my Maid/Matron of Honor something “special.” It won’t necessarily be any more expensive, or any more thoughtful than what I plan for the other girls, but just an extra ‘thank-you’ for the added effort. 🙂

I was the Maid/Matron of Honor in my MOH’s wedding a couple years ago. Similar deal- I did a TON for her, and she is doing sooo much for me now. She gave all us girls our gifts at the rehearsal dinner, but gave me something a little extra a couple days before. I thought it was very sweet of her and it felt nice to have my hard work acknowledged! I plan to do something similar for her as well.

That’s a good idea…I may give her something a few days before! For her wedding, she got me a bracelet and a Dunkin Donuts iced coffee koozie that I wanted (those were my “extra” gifts), and she gave them to me privately beforehand. Thanks for the suggestion!

I think I’m going to get my Maid/Matron of Honor something special. Either a personalized gym bag or pool chair cover. She’s done a lot of work and deserves something special 🙂

I took mine to Mario Badescu for a facial and pedicure, which she loved. 🙂 Or so she said!
