Hi ladies! It seems like there are so many sales going on, and I’m sure there will be more right after Christmas. And then it seems like a lot of stores do their "Semi-Annual sales" in Jan or Feb.
So I was thinking that this would be a good time to buy bridesmaids, groomsmen, parent, etc gifts. My wedding is in May, so I’ll need to buy them pretty soon anyway.
But the problem is that my mind is so frazzled between wedding planning and the holidays so I’m having a hard time thinking ahead!
What are you all giving to your attendants or family for your wedding? I’d love to hear ideas!

Fiance: A photo from a photographer in the town we are getting married. It is blown up and will go somewhere i nthe house. He loves it, but would never pay for it.
Bridesmaids: Earrings, money towards hotel acocmodations, manicures, flip flops and pashminas (not 100% sure, but it is what we are leaning towards, due to budget, we may need to cut part of the gift)
Groomsmen: money towards accomodations, probably the ties they will wear and maybe some type of bonding event like a hockey game
Flower Girl: Mayeb a scrapbook. She will be two when we get married and probably won’t remember it, so it may be nice to give her something to remember how special she was on our day.
Parenta: SO Tough, we don’t have a clue!

My wedding is far enough away (8/09) that I haven’t given serious thought to gifts yet, but I totally agree that it’s hard to pass up all of the amazing sales right now. I recently saw a 30% off coupon for Foot Petals – it was either on WeddingBee or another wedding blog – and jumped on that to pick up Foot Petals for my whole bridal party. It was such a small item that it can either accompany whatever I choose as my "main" gift to them, or be part of a bigger package if I give them a goodie bag of stuff.
Now I just have to store them somewhere so I can find them again in August…

I am giving them black satin clutches to carry at the wedding, their jewelry for the day, and something else that I haven’t come up with yet. 🙂
