  • Wedding: July 2015 - Carmen\'s Lakeview

We’re doing a pearls set (earrings, necklace and bracelet) for the girls ($40 from the jeweller we got our wedding rings from) and then pocketwatches for the boys.

I would just think about things that each girl would like. They don’t need to match or have anything to do with the wedding.

I had 5 people in my wedding party (3 girls and 2 guys) and it would have been impossible to find something that everyone liked. So I got tote bags for each girl with quotes from something we both like. Two bridesmaids also got a book. The other bridesmaid got framed pictures from the Hubble Space Telescope (she’s an astrophysicist). One of my bridesguys got a T-shirt and the other got a bottle of bourbon. 

My husband did the gifts for his 4 groomsmen but I think they were: A bourbon glass set, a nice blender, a bottle of rye whiskey and some sort of running gadget thingy (one of this brothers runs marathons).

You could do a small box of nice chocolates (like Godiva) and a bottle of wine!

Jax2015:  don’t compare your situation to others…just do what works for you.  I think $50 is more than enough for a nice gift.  You could get a necklace/earrings for girls to wear, or a cute clutch for them to use on wedding day but also after.  Tote bags are also really nice.  Etsy is your BFF for weddings though…take a look there.  There are tons of vendors on there that do bridal party “sets” which will save you some money.  Keep an eye on sales too.. the knot shop always has tons
