    I think it’s a reeally cute idea, especially if they are coming out and spending money and being there for you. Are the girls attending just your bridesmaids?

    My Maid/Matron of Honor is planning my bachelorette and isn’t telling me anything at all about it (I’m a little nervous, but equally excited), but I have hand picked the girls coming (2 of my 4 bridesmaids can’t make it). I like the idea of getting them something small to commemorate the night.

    I might borrow your idea. Thanks!

    Have fun!

    I think it’s cute, but the condoms sort of threw me off.

    @jenilynevette:  +1, the condoms threw me off a bit

    If this is something you think will be fun to have, i’d say go ahead.  As a Bridesmaid or Best Man though, I’d probably think it was pretty useless after the fact and just be clutter.  As a token of appreciation, what about offering to buy a set of shots or drinks at the first bar with a little thank you talk.  A bride I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man for picked up the hotel tab (a 500+ expense we were ready and willing to split) for the night for all the girls as her thank you for everyone.  I definitely appreciated that.

    @jhey83:  We’re doing a girl’s weekend away in Savannah/Tybee Island for my bachelorette party over Memorial Weekend. Because it’s not just one night, but a whole weekend, and they keep saying I can’t help with or pay for anything…I made super cute koozies for each one that I’m going to fill with those mini wine bottles and attach some Advil to them with ribbon. I feel badly that they won’t let me help! I will probably also made some food to bring along too.

    @jhey83:  Yea, her sister was planning the party and had just narrowed down the hotels, bride went ahead and booked it.  We found out when the final plans we emailed out and her sister said that she already went ahead and took care of the hotel.  You just can’t give them the opportunity to stop you or say no if you really want to do it.
