@aprilbride12: I got my girls colored pashmina shawls.

We had a boatride from the ceremony to the reception and they all wore their shawls:

Shop like it’s their birthday.  You don’t have to get them anything matchy-matchy or wedding-related at all; that way you don’t have to pick one thing and expect them all to like it.

Part of my gift was my bridesmaids’ jewelry. I also got them each a purse and filled it with goodies. 🙂

I remember reading Mrs. Zebra’s blog and she got her bridesmaids shoes. I like that idea bc a) every girl loves shoes, or at least my BMs do, and b) it’s a cohesive gift that can still be totally individual- everyone gets the same type of thing, but maybe one Bridesmaid or Best Man gets sneakers, one gets stilettos, etc.

So that’s what I’m considering doing. I thought about buying their jewlery but I’m not sure how much of a gift that is- “hey, here’s something you have to wear today whether you like it or not”

Am I nuts for wanting to get my girls Miche Bags and different shells that match them so they aren’t all the same?

I made my girls movie night baskets since I didn’t want to risk getting them jewelry or something that they wouldn’t really like. The baskets included…

• Bridesmaids DVD: It came out on DVD a few days before our wedding so it was still fresh. We were all supposed to go see it together when it was in theatres but our schedules never really worked. I figured the DVD was the next best thing.
• Popcornopolis gourmet popcorn: To freakin’ die for! I got them each a flavor that I thought they’d like.
• Super cozy throw blanket: They were seriously some of the softest blankets I’ve ever felt. I got them each a color that I thought would match their living rooms.
• Comfy PJ pants that I tried to match to the blanket (some were closer than others)
• Bottle of wine from the winery where we did a tasting for my bachelorette party. My one prego Bridesmaid or Best Man got an artisan water in a funky bottle.

Everything was packaged in nice burlap lined baskets that they’d be able to find a use for.
