@BrideEleven:  Why don’t you just tell them you will be providing their jewelry, but don’t go into detail about it.

I would tell them you are gifting them jewlery. I was a BM a few years back & spent about $50 in jewelry & accessories only to find out the day before the wedding that the bride was gifting us all the jewelry. I was a little bummed first off that I couldn’t wear the stuff I had been saving in their boxes and secodnly that I spent that money for no reason.

First, congratulate yourself on your good taste, and how insync you are with your friends, lol. I think Mrs. Hammer’s idea is about all you can go on without giving it away, though I think it’s better to ruin the surprise a little early than to pull off a sitcom workaround where everyone ends up lying about biggeer and bigger stuff. I don’t think she’ll be upset to be constrained on what she wears so long as you’re paying for it.
