I think a tote bag filled with goodies is a nice idea. You could fill it with candies, bath/body lotion, maybe cute things they may need as bridesmaids?

Depending on how much you were willing to spend, it might be a nice idea to treat everyone to lunch instead.

I think that if everyone is meeting for the first time, a nice lunch or something would be a better idea. That way everyone can chat and get to know one another. It’s really awesome for you that they’re all able to come!

I think a little gift bag is a great idea! I would put in them some of those mini bottles of water, some snacks, and something thoughtful for each of them. Is there a Target near you? They have really cute little stuff in their $1 section you could put in there. With Easter coming up, I know they have cute little baskets you could use.

@pink.sequins: If you are wanting to give them something why don’t you bake some treats for them? Cookies or bars or something. Since usually the norm is to give BM’s gifts right before the wedding (as in rehersal dinner)  a treat such as cookies or bars would be a nice touch.

@pink.sequins: Yay! It’s fabulous that everyone is able to come out. I love the idea of welcome gifts, but maybe it’d be nice to stay away from the gift basket route (especially if you’re thinking of that for the day of your wedding), as to not seem redundant.  But I like the idea of fun treats for them, to thank them for coming.

Do you have places picked  out to go for the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress hunt?

@pink.sequins: Ah okay! Wow, that is fabulously generous of you and your Fiance. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the idea of gifting everyone their attire. It will certainly eliminate a lot of the tension in the room and allow for more fun to happen. Then, in that case, definitely do the gifts now!  You are such a sweetheart, the anti-bridezilla! ๐Ÿ™‚
