Hello everyone, this is my first post and I am hoping to get some good feedback from you 🙂
I have a small wedding party consisting of my cousin the Matron of Honor, my best friend of 23yrs, my Maid of Honor and 2 other close friends will be my bridesmaids.
I’ve been racking my brain about what to do for gifts and what extra I can give or do for my Matron & Maid of Honor. For my 30th birthday (last week) my Maid of Honor took me to Coach to pick out a wristlet since mine has fallen apart after many years. I was shocked that she was letting me choose and buying me such an expensive item when she had already bought me a selphy photo printer! I was very excited and chose a larger wristlet and the total came to about $105. It’s BEAUTIFUL and I love it. So i got to thinking this morning while driving, every girl loves a Coach, right??? I was wondering if it would be a good idea to do something like this for the girls as gifts.
What do ya’ll think? Maybe a avg. size wristlet or clutch (in similar colors of the wedding theme, ie: brown or a dark coral if i can find it) for the bridesmaids and something larger and a bit more substantial for the MOH’s?
Or I guess I could do the avg size wristlets for all and just put something nice inside the MOH’s gifts. Maybe a $25 gift card to their fave place or a personalized compact?
I’d love your feedback and ideas please!!
Thanks to all 🙂

The Gift thing is Tricky… does everyone like a wristlet?…. I would go with a safe bet like makeup cases that are monogramed and they come in every color! or note pads with each persons name on them and different ones to match each persons personality… or you could get tote bags and fill them with fun stuff that you know that special person would like! everyone can use a tote bag from A fashionista to a Enviroment lover to carry groceries….. you could just put a little nicer things in you Maid/Matron of Honor bag! I would go to stationary studio.com they have some great ideas… hope that helped!

Maybe a wallet would be more universal, rather than a wristlet. I know I personally don’t get much use out of the wristlets I own. A wallet, on the other hand, would always come in handy. Just toss it in the purse and go. =)
Love the monogrammed compact! My sister gave us those as Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts last year, and I love it.

Hey!You’ve been in my plannig folder! Hehe.
I’m also planning on doing a Coach Wristlet (the leather ones bc more chances the colors match my theme) with a compact mirror from Red Envelope and a earring/necklace set they can wear the day of.
I think it depends on your girls. Do you think they will use the wristlets? I’m 80% sure mine will.
P.S. Google to see if there’s a Coach outlet near you! They are SO cheap at the outlets! Call 1-888-262-6224 to find the nearest Coach Factory Store to you!
