I have 6 bridesmaids. And for each of them I have purchased a personalized tote, a lilly pulitzer koozie, pearl necklace, pearl earrings, pearl bracelet, and Nautical flip flops. We are also taking care of their hair. And I am taking care of my two MOH’s makeup since they are doing so much. Also my parents have rented a house for themselves, my FH and I, and all of my Bridesmais plus their dates for a whole week (since the wedding is a 3.5 hr drive from home its a vacation spot so we are making a vacation out of it)!
So I was thinking of going to costco and adding a few things of water, snacks etc in the totes as well.
The only thing is that 2 of my bridesmaids are DH sister and sister in law. So they are not staying at the house they are staying with his fam and not coming up the whole week. Do you think I should still put snacks in?
And is this enough stuff or do you think I should give them more?
Let me know ladies! Thanks for your help!!!

I think that is a great gift. If you wanted, you could still give them the waters and snacks. Maybe they’d like to have it for the day of. Sounds fun! 🙂

I think that’s enough, although I always think a nice card thanking them for being part of your day is the most essential part of a bridesmaid gift.
I think you should give the in town girls water & snacks, too. That way you won’t have to worry about whether it’s equal or not. Besides, they could probably use them the day of. I know my friend, for her destination wedding, had waters with personalized labels (I’m sure you could easily print them yourself & put them on the Costco water bottles), and everyone thought it was really cute. I love personalized things, but I hate the idea of expecting someone to keep something in their home with my wedding details on it, so this is a nice compromise.

Wow I think that is a great gift! It sounds like your BMs don’t have to worry about a thing for the wedding! I would go ahead and add the waters anyway just to be safe.

Wow those are amazing gifts! I think you should still put water and stuff in there so they can have it for the day!

I will also most definitely include a personalized card for each!

Holy cow – those are really nice gifs and I definately don’t think you need anything else. Could you just have the drinks and snacks at the house, instead of in their bags?

Those are really nice gifts. I agree about keeping water/snacks either in the bag or at the house or somewhere accessible for them. Those touches go a long way. Congrats on your upcoming wedding 🙂
