I have spent about $50 on each girl

  • Plastic cups w/ lotions, lip gloss, and hand sanitizer from Bath and Body Works
  • Necklace and earring set (for the wedding day but casual enough for them to wear again)
  • Embroidered handkerchiefs
  • Each of their favorite liquor

All in a cute little basket.

we only had my adult son stand up with me and his sister stand up with my dh. 

we got his sister pearl necklace and earrings.  i am thinking between $50-100.

we spent a little over $100 for my son plus paid for his tux b/c he was actually so much more helpful with the wedding planning process and he was also our m/c.

i don’t think you need to break the bank when it comes to these gifts.  a token of your appreciation is all that is necessary.

I got each of my bridesmaids these cute little Coach wristlets! I signed up for the newsletter for the outlets, so they tell me whenever there are big sales. I totally understand where you are coming from, I have 8 bridesmaids. It’s hard to spend a ton. These ended up being just under 35 bucks each 🙂

 

I’ve also looked at little necklaces and earrings on etsy. I wanted cheap little cute jewelry they could wear. I found some little necklaces for like 2.50 each that are silver starfish that go with my beach theme.

We’re spending $35 on each girl. I’m having necklaces made for them.

Below is the insipiration. The necklaces look identical to the bracelet. :]

I’m spending around $200 per girl, but I only have 3 BM. I purchased them Kate Spade bracelet and cosmetic pouch. I plan on purchasing them a MAC eyeshadow palate & lipgloss. Oh, I’m also having a Destination Wedding so it’s etiquette to spend more than I normally would on each girl.

I got my girls: earings & necklace to match dress about $30, jewlery rolls with their initials (etsy!) $25 or 30 with shipping, and cute flip flops they could wear $15, I have that to them the day before.  The day of the wedding I got each girl a card which I spent a lot of time picking out the perfect card for each girl with a mini bottle of champs and a $25 g.c. for their hair.  For my moh I gave her a $50 g.c., the gifts above, and a dustbuster (lol-she really wanted one!)

So my girls I spent @ 100, and moh @175.  I think the g.c. was a nice surprise the morning of

I am paying for my bm’s hair and makeup and I also got them each earrings and a bracelet that I found on Etsy. I wanted to get them jewelry that wasn’t too “bridal” so they could wear them again. For everything, it will be about $150 on each girl.

I spent about $75 on each bridesmaid (I had 3) and about $175 on my Maid/Matron of Honor.

– Bridesmaids: Coach wristlet (I got them at the outlet with a 30% off coupon), robe, lip gloss, gum, and a personalized pocket mirror

– Maid/Matron of Honor: same as above and a mani/pedi the day before the wedding

I figured I would spend $50 per girl then I kept finding stuff I wanted to get so I spent a little more than I anticipated. They all loved their gifts though so worth it.

The mani/pedi was way more than I wanted to spend, I picked a fancy spa when we could have just done to the local salon and probably could have spent half and gotten a better job done.

I think it ended up being $30-ish each? Some of it varied, as it wasn’t all the same for each girl.

I ordered Day-Of bags (that they still use, as they are teachers), big awesome rings for the day-of, earrings, a jewelry case, and I wrote a personalized, picture-filled letter to each of them. I also gave them all other little things different for each of them – a book mark, a magnet, just little things that reminded me of them.

We had a pretty low-budget wedding in the grand scheme of things, so yeah.
