    I think it would be really sweet to get hem meaningful pieces to match their personalities, and I’m sure they’d appreciate getting jewelry they’d like to wear again.

    My ladies will be in mismatched dresses (same manufacturer, same fabric, different designs), but I bought them matching shoes.  I’m not picky about the jewelry – I never notice Bridesmaid or Best Man jewelry – so they can wear what they like accessory-wise.  I’ve just asked them to keep it somewhat understated.

    I agree with PP, get them things that are more them than matchy-matchy. I’m sure that they’ll wear them even more knowing that you picked it out just for them and it will fit their personality and style more.

    Same shoes, one unifying peice like the bangels, then different earings for everyone! I love it!  One other thought is to get the maid w/o peierced ears some clip on earings instead of a necklace so she is on par with the others giftwise & accesory wise.  My ladies will also be dressed in mismatched dresses. I am really starting to not like the word mismatched bc they do match just not in a matchy matchy way!! I am going for the monochrome effect with 3 girls in 2 designers & 3 similar colors. It sounds dangerous but it looks so good! I will have to post a picture one of these days.

    I am in the camp that day of accessories are not a gift for the BMs. They are to fufill your vision, which isn’t much of a thank you.

    But going for something you think they will like is always better then something for the sake of the uniform.

    Maybe it’s just me but it would always stand out to me if one had a necklace and no one else die, especially if any of the dresses are strapless. Why not get her clip on earrings? There are some nice ones out there that don’t require her ears to be pierced.

    They can have mismatched jewelry, that’s fine! Though, I voted that you just need a cocktail. 🙂

    I love mismatched looks on bridesmaids, personally.  Mine are all having different style dresses, but same color and fabric and they are all floor length.  I’m letting them wear their own small stud earrings and their own silver/grey open toed pumps.  I think it’s fine if they have different earrings!

    They can have matching or mismatched jewelry.  Your guests will barely notice, TBH.  If you give them matching jewelry as a ‘gift’ you should add something else, since the jewelry really is just a prop for the photos.

    @MrsDrRose612:  Fantastic gift!  My rule of thumb is always to shop for bridesmaids like its their birthday, and it sounds like you did just that.
