I am doing the same for my Destination Wedding.  I paid for one BMs trip (because she is not working) and bought their dresses and am paying for their hair and make-up the day of.  I think that’s plenty.

I think the robes is a sufficient physical, reusable gift considering all the other things you are paying for.

I think the robes are fine. But maybe something for the 2 other bms that you’re not paying accomodations for so it’s a little more “fair”.

I’d toss in a heartfelt note to each Bridesmaid or Best Man and then it sounds like you’re covered 🙂

I would consider the robe their gift so no, I don’t think you need to get anything else.

I think something else personal would be nice. Like a picture frame with a note, and after the wedding you give them a picture to put in the frame. Something sentimental.

@gonatgo:  In Ireland it is customary for the bride to pay for the dress, shoes and hair/Make up (not always but often) as well as giving a smallgiftis usually jewellery to wear on the wedding day).

I think all you are giving them is plenty. A nice heartfelt card or note is something personal you could add and give to them either right before or right after the wedding.

You are spending a lot on them, but why not give them a small thank you? Even if it’s a card or some candy they like, it’s the thought that counts.
