    Love them! And LOVE supporting fellow Esty artists! I designed and made all the jewelry for my BMs and bought all the supplies from Etsy suppliers. (I also bought my handmade Red Sox garter from Etsy, but I digress.) Jewelry is a great Bridesmaid or Best Man gift. It is something they can wear again and again and always remember your special day, and you save them from having to buy it for themselves.

    I’m also making our bouquets from silk flowers and giving them to them in crystal vases. Just an idea…

    • Wedding: March 2009 - Byodo-In Temple, Luau Reception

    I’m actually making my girls a "yearbook" of our friendship using blurb. I’ll post about it later, after the wedding. They have no idea and I want to surprise them. :o)

    • Wedding: August 2009 - St. Thomas of Villanova Church & the F.U.E.L. House

    I’m getting each a pendant necklace engraved with her initials — and for my sister and Maid/Matron of Honor, her married monogram.  I’m also getting each a gift certificate to 1154 LILL in Philly, and making each a picnic lunch.  The picnic lunch and handbag store visit will be our day before the wedding activities, and then I’m paying for each to get her make-up done professionally the morning of the wedding.  Phew!  Hurts a bit in the wallet to see it all written out!

    I found some awesome tote bags last summer on clearance, and am filling them with their necklace or earrings (haven’t found the perfect ones yet), and a handbag to go with their dress, which I also found on clearance, but they are stunning. If I can find a good deal on some sandals, I’ll probably throw that in too…I really want to offer to split the cost of hair on the day of, but I don’t know, we’ll see how the budget goes!

    I personally lean towards the idea of getting the ladies something personal for them individually and something that has nothing to do with the wedding.  I have a friend who is an avid gardener, and one who is into knitting, another that really likes books and reading, so I plan on getting each lady something unique to her.

    I’m paying for each bridesmaid’s sari, jewelry, and hair.  As a thank you, I’m giving each one an individual gift.  Each one of my bridesmaids is so different from the others that I wanted to get something for each that would mean something to her.

    I am doing a beach bag with earrings for the wedding, flip flops and maybe paying for their manicures. If we have extra mone,y I may add a couple more items to the beach bag.

    I haven’t purchased anything yet, but I intend to give them each a jewelry roll – possibly embroidered with their initials – with jewelry inside of it, like earrings and a necklace.

    I also like the spa gift certificate idea! Who doesn’t like a little pampering? =)

    A print in a frame from Briam Andres – they all have cute quotes on them, totally a keepsake. The prints will all be choosen based on bridesmaid of course and he has SO many options. Hopefully they’ll hang it and keep it forever:) I’m also thinking about a tote, a necklace, and maybe something else…

    I’m getting each girl a cast iron Japanese tea sets (tetsubins). They’ll be set out at their table as centerpieces for the reception.  Each one is getting a different shape and color, so it should look really interesting.
