I have a quick question. Are any of you ladies giving your girls a gift at the Bachelorette Party? I wanted to make the “crunk cups” to drink out of all day and night (they have two things planned, first thing starts at 11) and completely bling them out with glitter paint and gems then fill them up with little things like a condom, advil, pepto, candy…….. I just wanted to show my appreciation for all their time and funds they have invested into making a day about me! What do you think?

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!

Your Welcome! My Maid/Matron of Honor is planning my Bachelorette; I have the same feeling as you; nervous but excited as I have NO idea what we are doing. All my girls (7 of us total) are meeting at 11am to do something with just us; all I have been told is it is something I have never done and would never do unless forced = NERVOUS lol. So I was going to give the cups to them at this point. Then we are going back to one of the girls houses; having dinner and getting ready. Then the bus is picking us up then the rest of the “crew” and heading out….I think about 20 of us total. So I wanted my BM’s to “stand out” a little. IF I have time and I can do cost effectively I might make a cup for everyone but want to do the girls first.

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.

Thanks Ladies! I should have clarified better lol I will only do condoms for the couple girls who are single that would find it to be an absolute riot just because of their personality; not for use. I wouldn’t include in the couple married girls cups, although they would find funny. I like your bar idea; but with 20 other girls not one of them will allow me to do this. Thanks for the input; I appreciate it!
No one will let me help either! All I get is “we got it covered” which is great and I know no one minds and everyone is more than happy to do this but still. I love your kookie idea as well. Like me it’s something thats a surprise to them and they won’t not accept! Thanks for the input; I appreciate it!

@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.
