- Wedding: June 2010
ok – so i FINALLY decided on absolutely what i want to get my Maid/Matron of Honor and my 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man.
I am buying them both cute bags with their names embroidered + do a “window box” for each of them, personalizing it with a scrap-booked page of our friendship and wedding stuff (including they can put their garters in the box)…
BUT. my Maid/Matron of Honor has done SO much for my bridal shower – will be for my bachelorette party AND our engagement party 2 years ago! she’s seriously put SO much of herself into all my planning – and as much as I love my other bridesmaid – she just hasn’t…#1 she lives 2 hours away and really can’t help too much and #2 she’s an Maid/Matron of Honor in another friend’s wedding and is busy with that.
thing is – along with those gifts I also plan on giving my Maid/Matron of Honor a gift certificate to a spa worth about $200 (facial, massage and pedicure)
Not that I don’t WANT to give something like that to my BM – but asides from the fact that she hasn’t helped NEARLY as much – it’s more that we are short on cash and both my husband and I agree that my Maid/Matron of Honor deserves something REALLY big.
I guess my question is – how would you guys go about this? Maybe give them both the same thing at the same time (the baggie filled with goodies + the window boxes) and then find a separate time to give my Maid/Matron of Honor her giftcard?
Thing is – they are also close friends and I just don’t want Bridesmaid or Best Man to find out that Maid/Matron of Honor got something extravegent and end up jealous…
what do you all think? Also – in the “goodie bags” I wanted to give them some “spa-stuff” such as a nice robe set and maybe say a gift card for $25 to bath and body works or something…to go along with the theme.
