    Hey Jen-

    I’m in the 50-100 range only because of their jewelry and sashes for their dresses. They’re personalized totes and tees aren’t all that much.

    Hope that helps.

    😉

    I hit about $90 I think, including their dress, hair, jewelry, tote bags, goodies, and a dinner

    I put myself in the 0-50 range without really thinking. I mean 50pounds which is something more like 80 dollars I think. FH and I just can’t afford to spend much more than that on our bridal party – as much as we’d love to.

    Hummm..when I total everything and then split it amongst the girls I am coming in around $40 per lady (including the hotel suite for the night before). I am finding great deals!

    I spent about $200 on each of my bridesmaids.  This was feasible for me because I had a small wedding party and I was so happy to have them with me on that special day.

    I got them each a black pearl necklace set in white gold, on a white gold chain with a small diamond accent. They were simple and lovely – they all wore them for the wedding (our colors were black and white).  I also bought them all wraps (faux pasminas) in case they got cold throughout the evening (Nov. wedding) and I got them all pedicures the day before the wedding – we made a fun girl day out of it.

    Not included in their gift, I also included a gift certificate for the salon we went to so they could all get their hair done on the day of the wedding.

    @jennifer_espos, my mom made the bridesmaid dresses (about $25 each) and my SIL is actually a hairstylist and woudln’t take my money, so I just paid $100 to her friend who helped and I bought her a GC for a massage as a thank you. I also made a bunch of stuff for the girls (bracelets) and hair flowers (we got married outside) and monogrammed wine glasses and bought them pink pearl earrings. I also bought tote bags at Garden Ridge, put their monograms on them, and packaged everthing up in those. Then I stuffed in snacks and food and whatnot for the day.

    And when I had them over to assemble invitations, I made homemade vegetarian creamy white lasagna with margaritas. I didn’t really “buy” a lot of stuff necessarily b/c I didm’t know what to get them. And I’d gotten most of this done before I discoverd the ‘bee or I would’ve just gone out and bought solid gold pendants for each girl, unique, and done only that.

    Fiance and I have decided that $50 per person (we have 12 people total) is a good amount to spend. Any more and we would be broke! We are budgeting about $1000 for gifts including gifts for both sets of parents and bridal party.

    I’m not possitive, but I said 50-100. I’ve just been slowly getting them stuff, so I haven’t sat down and figured out the price yet for each

    All in all, I’ve spend about $135 per girl but I only have 4 bridesmaids, so it was a little easier to spend a bit more money…That include a piece of jewelry from Satya jewelry (not intended to be worn for the wedding, just as a thank you), an LL Bean monogrammed tote bag and a pashmina.
