Maybe at the end when everyone is leaving ask them to stick around a little. IMO it would be kinda rude to give them gifts in front of everyone.

If you are afraid of hurting someone’s feelings maybe you should have the bridesmaids over Thursday for a “last minute detail” meeting and give the gifts out then.

You can also do it ceremoniously at dinner during the trip and give the bridesmaids a toast. I dont think honoring the hostesses in front of guests is a negative thing.

I think it is not needed to get everyone something. A bachelorette party is something fun for people to do. So they are probably half paying their way to celebrate with you and half because of the event itself. It is their choice to take part but it is your bridesmaids whom have done the research and planning so I believe they are the ones who deserve the gift.

Though there are some of those people whom would probably get offended thinking that bc they paid too and didnt get a gift. So you can avoid that kind of peoples bs, I would give the gifts in private. Im sure you can get them away at some point of after the night winds down.

It’s perfectly appropriate to give your BMs gift for planning/hosting. Just don’t do it in front of your other friends. It will just remind them that they aren’t BMs…
