Wow, that is a LOT of gift!  If I were your Bridesmaid or Best Man I would love it!

I got my ladies some jewelry to wear the day of, a big gift bag full of fun, silly stuff (spa day stuff, that sort of thing) and then bought them a silver jewelry tree that fits in with our theme becuase the branches have two birds on them (bird theme wedding).

What else would you get them??

I just ordered them flip flops today for the reception ($2.50/pair) and I also plan on getting them a Coach wristlet from the Outlet (about $30-35 each). We are also paying for them to get their hair done for the wedding ($30-40 each).

We spent about $80 per attendant because it was all we could afford. We got them all personal, meaningful gifts (a different one for each person that had nothing to do with the wedding) because we felt they would get more use out of it. They were a big hit. For example, the best man got a really nice watch that we got at a crazy sale at Macys, and I got my mom emerald earrings at an outlet mall because she’s always wanted them and I knew she would wear the heck out of them after the wedding.

I think I’m going to be around $90-$100 per girl (I only have 2). They’re getting a tote bags, a pashmina and a pair of cute flats for the day-of, and then I also got them monogrammed robes and some more personal stuff thats fits their personalities. Plus, we’re making their dresses.

I’ve got 3 girls, one threw me an awesome bachelorette, one designed ALL of our paper products, two are coming from across the country … I want to make it worth their while and let them know how much I appreciate them!

I got each a pearl necklace/earring set (different style for each), a small LeSport bag, one of those purse hooks that hangs on the table (yeah, I don’t know … it’s a toss in, haha) and they’re getting gift certificates to Wine.com; probably $50 each, maybe $75 for the one who made my invites. 🙂

I love giving gifts, so I think the more the better.  I got mine high quality Akoya pearl necklaces.
