I’m paying up to $200 for my MOH’s dress, plus hair/makeup and a pedicure the day before.  In addition to that, I’m getting her some jewelry (not sure what yet) and a jewelry holder-thing since she keeps her current jewelry all tangled in a shallow dish.  I’m getting her Boyfriend or Best Friend, an usher, a gift certificate for a restaurant that they’ll use together.  That’s it so far, but it means a lot to me that she’s taking off work, driving, and getting a hotel room for several nights.

If you can afford it…get them gift certificates to a spa!

I’m getting them all wraps to match, pearl necklaces and earrings, clutch bags and a pearl hair comb each. I’m paying for hair and make up on the day and for a manicure for each of them the day before as they are all travelling and taking time off work to be there for me, and it really means a lot to me.

I’m also making all of our BMs and the Mums a “pamper hamper” and giving it to them a couple of days before the wedding, each one will include:

– A bottle of their favourite wine

– A little box of chocolates

– A face mask and some nice bubble bath

– A nice lipstick/lipgloss

– A copy of a magazine/book they’ll like

– A card detailing how much they mean to me and how I hope that pamper hamper will give them back some time for themselves seeing as they’ve spent so much time helping me with my wedding.
