@CityBearBride:  How hideous was it? Lol…I kind of want to see the pic..of the halloween costume

I really like the “survival kit” idea. I didnt even think of that until I found the Bee. Im definately using that when I get married.

Favorite was a heart diamond pendant.  I’ve worn it every day since her wedding.  (it doesn’t hurt that during the planning, she asked what I wanted…hehe)  She also bought our dresses, which I had never seen done before.  That was cool, as I don’t see me wearing it ever again.  LOL


Least favorite?  A Bridesmaid or Best Man goodie bag filled with things that I would never use (wine glass charms, spa giftcard…etcetera).  Looking back, I believe she got them mixed up, as I ended up trading bags with another Bridesmaid or Best Man who loved what was in mine, and I what was in hers.

Seems to be the different between “favorite” and “least favorite” is “picked with my persnality in mind” and “picked so we’d match/look how the bride wants in pictures”??

I think anything with the wedding date or whatever is kind of selfish… noone wants that except the bride anyways…

I would love any gift.

I’ve been Bridesmaid or Best Man once for my sister. She bought my dress so that was fine by me. Im paying for all my BMs dresses, accessories and hair/make-up which they have a say in so those are my gifts to them. im also paying for their accommodation. one of them is my closest friend who has been the truest friend you could ever ask for. Life has been hard on her yet she’s the happiest and most positive person I’ve ever met. I’ve bought her a diamond ring which I’ll give her privately on my wedding day.

I just wanted follow-up my post and say my Canvas Duffel Bags arrived!!! They are perfect and I love them – they are so nice that I am deciding to not get the robes (to get ready in) I was looking at! Wear boxers lol I don’t care – these bags will be sweet.

PS. I did pay for my girls dresses too…But I bought them before I was even engaged lol – so it didn’t technically come out of the wedding budget.

Y’all have me stressing now…


I’ve been in 3 weddings and received jewelry as my gift in each one. I must say that the last one I was in, the bride paid for our hair and make up and that was wonderful! We bought our dress and was allowed to wear whatever nude colored shoes we’d like.


Now for my wedding, I had planned to get my ladies earrings and a bracelet (for the wedding), and a monogramed halfzip pullover. It will be cold when I get married so I thought they would be cute to wear while getting ready, BUT I can see all 5 of my girls wearing them again. UGH does that make me selfish? I intend on paying for their makeup and hair as well!

I ama giving giving my girls natural pink pearls that were all hand knotted by an awesome aunt… And they are an heirloom. They are very valuable and will last forever. they didn’t pay for their dresses so I’m not going overboard but may get them little makeup kits too.
