I have 4 bridesmaids and so far i spent about $150 each, and i still have some random odds and ends to throw in their day of bags!

I totally overspent, but i knew exactly what i wanted to get them, and they’ve helped out a TON… they deserve it!

@Wowand135:  I’m doing robes too.  I found customized waffle weave robes for about 40$ on Etsy.  I have 6 bridesmaids.  I have additional gifts for two of my gals who are both MOH’s and those are engraved compacts for about 20$.  Also, we are gifting lodging at the inn for all of our bridal party members…hard to say how that comes out.  Lowest price room is about 150$ and we’re gifting two nights at the inn which include breakfast in their rooms, wine and cheese in the evenings, and a sunday brunch.

I’m making a get ready basket. I want to get them their jewelry and robes without breaking the bank. Simple cz or crystal jewelry. Any ideas would be amazing!

Fiance and I decided to spend about $70/person. There are 3 GMs and 3 BMs. GMs are getting engraved pocketwatches (to go with our Victorian theme) and BMs are getting Victorian-style earrings & bracelets, a bathrobe, and their purses.

I have 6 Bridesmaids total so I understand where you are coming from! I came to realize though the girls are paying $120 for their dresses and $40 for their shoes to be in MY wedding. We are going on a weekend beach trip for my bachelorette party so I got them a beach towel (Target for $5) and got their initials monogrammed on them (Cost me $3.50 per towel (Three Peas in A Pod on facebook, she ships)) a drink koozie with their initials on them ($10 a piece which was a deal because i bought 6) and i bought some cups for .50 at Winn Dixie and got their initials put on them!

I have just one member in my bridal party – my maid of honor. I purchased her a bracelet – $35, earrings $25, pashmina $20, a handmade gardenia hair flower $45, a MAC gift certificate $50 and am paying to have her hair done for the wedding. Additionally, since we are doing a destination wedding, I am paying for her and I to have a mini spa day the day before the wedding. I expect that will set me back another $250 each.
