    I have 6 girls and spent between $25-50 per girl. For that I got the following (each girl said they wanted the same thing as the other): 

    -Wristlet from Etsy

    – Strawberry scented Kleenex (some of my girls are emotion but included it for everyone)

    – A stick of lip gloss

    – Bracelet they can either the day of the wedding or any other day

    – Bottle of hand lotion from Bath and Body Works 

    – Made them a hanger for their dresses myself but don’t really consider it apart of the gift

    I think thats all but part of me feels like I am missing something.

    I had one BM so outside of her dress (which I bought) I spent about $80 on her gift.  I got her a silver cuff bracelet and matching necklace.

    I’m getting the type of gifts I would for their birthdays, so different things for each person. So far the three I’ve ordered have been near $50 each, some may come out cheaper or more expensive. There are 5 friends we will be getting gifts for, and then probably something for our parents.

    • Wedding: April 2014 - Italian Villa

    MissLibra:  I spent about $140 each for 2 girls on a Kate Spade purse (on sale!). One got brown and the other got black. They both love them and use them every day. I know I spent more than most people, but having only 2 gave me the flexibility to get them something really nice. And since they flew to Italy for our wedding, I wanted them to know how much I appreciated the committment (both time and financial).

    I had 4 girls and spent about $35 each.

    I got them a bracelet and earrings for the day of. (This is common where I am from, and normally that is all BM get.) 

    I also bought their shoes.

    The last thing I got them was their initial on a lunch tote. (One is a teacher, one brings lunch to work, the other two sometimes do as well—or they can use it to transport food elsewhere.)

    I got everything on sale otherwise I would have paid about $100.

    I voted 150-175 per girl, but I think it was a little over 150. I had 3 bridesmaids. I bought them each a necklace, earrings, a personalized jewelry box with their name engraved on it, a Yankee candle, 2 Essie nail polishes and a little makeup bag from Victoria’s secret that held the nail polishes. Oh and I gave them each a card that I wrote little personal messages inside 🙂

    Probably about $180 each. I would like to get them each a piece of nicer jewelry. We’ll see. I’ve only bought them very small bud vases so far.

    I had three bridesmaids and I got them each a robe and tank dress to wear while we got ready. I also got them each a necklace based on their tastes and my relationship with them. I also gave them each a wooden hanger and carved their first initial into them to hang their dress.

    We bought the whole bridal party sunglasses and then I got by 3 bridesmaids a trio of rings in gold, silver and rose gold. Then I got them a few small trinkets. Not sure on the exact total but under 200$ each. they are my sisters, and are each spending 1000’s of dollars to come to our wedding, and I would spend so much more if I could afford it to show them how much they mean to me.
