I had planned 50 per maid but I keep buying them things! It will probably end up at 150.00!

I’ve budgeted $50 per maid, but I know I’ll go over. I love buying presents!

So far I’m at $15 per person. There are like 4 more things I want to buy though! :/

I think I’ll probably wind up around $75-100 per maid…I was hoping to stay around $50 but the main gift alone is $45-65/girl, and I know I’m going to want to add stuff.  Trouble!

I’m budgeting $50 to $60 per Bridesmaid or Best Man.

Not sure what I’m getting them yet so I’m not sure how the money will spread out. I too love buying presents and might go over a bit. Was thinking about doing gift certificates for massages in baskets filled with some little pamper stuff like slippers and bubble bath, then I was thinking to add in a personalized wine glass that I can make at home for a decent price.

Im thinking $50-$100 per maid. He can spend whatever he wants on his groomsmen.

We had that dilemma, too, but I think we’re doing a bar kit (cocktail shaker, jigger, muddler, ice bucket, what have you) in stainless steel (like the Crate & Barrel ones!) for the guys, which is about the same price range.

I know how you feel on that front! On one hand, I think it’s sort of up to the Fiance to pick gifts for his attendants…on the other hand, I think he sometimes doesn’t know how to give good presents. Oops!

I’m doing about $50/maid, ($15 totes, $13 underwear, $3 sunglasses, $5 pashmina, $15 picture frame), plus I’m getting everyone mani/pedis the day before the wedding.  So it’ll probably come out to about $80-90.  I got good deals on the gifts though.  I told Fiance to spend about $60 on the boys, but it’s his job to come up with that stuff.

If your GMs are drinkers, you could add a shot glass and mini bottles of alcohol (think the size that you would get on a plane) to their gift…

I personally think that you should try and spend equal money on both the girls and the guys.
