I am in my last week of planning and I can’t stop stressing about the Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts. So far I have gotten them a really cute cork clutch (our wedding is vineyard themed), beautiful crystal drop earrings from Etsy, also sterling bow bracelets with their initial, Pj’s for night before, and a tube dress to get ready in day of. Also, my mom has made them a custom shoe bag, dress bag, and name wire hangers. The Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses were about 220 before alterations so im guessing each of them spent about 300 on dresses and I did not require special shoes because the dresses are long. I would have gotten them individual gifts but some of the girls are a little jealous of each other already so I though sticking with the same gifts would be safer. Do you guys think I am in the clear????

@conzy: I would be incredibly happy to recieve those gifts! I got all of my girls the same things so there wouldn’t be anyone feeling like they got shafted. I did get a little something extra for my sister (MOH) and my niece (because she’s my niece).

I think those are wonderful gifts! And you’re very generous! I’m sure they will love what you’re giving.
I am giving my bridesmaids a few gifts as well but I spread the gift giving out (hopefully they remember that I got more than one gift for them and don’t feel “cheated” at the end lol). I gave them the wire name hangers at my shower, I got personalized wine glasses for the bachelorette party, and silver bracelets with an infinity symbol charm that i’m giving them at the rehearsal dinner. I got my Maid/Matron of Honor an extra gift, a picture frame with both our names on it and a personalized message thanking her for being my Maid/Matron of Honor. When I give her the frame i’m putting in a pic of us together as little kids (we are cousins), and I’ll be giving her a nice pic of us at the wedding to put in the frame after.
