I found a great deal on some polarized Kate Spade sunglasses and was thinking about buying them and giving a pair to each of my bridesmaids. Do you think this is something that would be appreciated or is it too personal (as in how they fit and look on, etc)? I can get these for an amazing deal and could write a note with something like “Thank you for being my bridesmaid, we couldn’t have done it without you. Use these so you don’t get blinded by our love on Sunday”. Not that exactly because I came up with it in 2 seconds, but something along those line. Thoughts?!?!?

AmandaRedd: While it sounds like a great idea and nice gift, I know some people are super picky about their sunglasses. Everyone has different face shapes and different styles look good on different people. It would be sad to spend the money on something that your friends might not ever wear.

AmandaRedd: Sunglasses are pretty tricky to buy, I wouldn’t be confident giving them as a gift because they may not look right/ person may not like them.

AmandaRedd: I’m not a fan of getting all your wedding party one of the same thing, especially an accessory because most likely they will not all like the same! And like PP said I try on about a billion sunglasses before deciding on the pair that looks best on my face so that’s never anything I would consider buying as a gift.

I think sunglasses sound great in theory, but I agree that people can be pretty picky about their sunglasses. If the deal offers several different styles, you could talk to your bridesmaids and ask what style they might prefer. If you really want to keep their gifts a surprise, then you might want to look at other gift options. Good luck!

I want to do sunglasses, but I think I will do cheap ones (like from Topshop or urban outfitters) that are better as an “Extra” pair of sunnies, for instance, I don’t like wearing my designer shades to the beach when I know they might get lost so I wear my extra crappy pair. Because I agree, it is impossible to buy the perfect style for someone else.
So for Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts, I’m going to do sunnies and something else. I think the photos of us all wearing matching sunnies will be cute.

I’m very very picky with my sunglasses and have a hard time finding glasses that I like. Do they all wear sunglasses?
