    I voted for “services”. Most bridesmaids are already paying a lot to be a part of a wedding, so that is always a nice gesture!

    Services paid or a personalized gift. I’m a sap. A poor sap, haha. 🙂

    When I was a maid of honor for a friend of mine, she paid for our hair and nails to be done.  It was really great seeing that I had already spent so much money on the dress and shoes she wanted me to wear…which did not come cheap.  I think that number 1 is most appreciative but perhaps not the most sentimental

    I think I would rather have something not related to the wedding, unless I was being required to purchase a certain dress/shoes/jewelry for the wedding

    I would really like to have some of the “services” paid for. I really think that is a great gift and takes some of the financial stress off of them if they are already paying for the dress, travel, hotel, etc.

    I would also really like something that I could use again like comfy pj pants & tank or something like that.

    I’d like #3 (something not related to the wedding) but I wouldn’t like the bride requiring me to get my hair, make-up, and nails done if she wasn’t going to pay for it. I think that in and of itself is not a gift-it’s a gift to the bride. I wouldn’t want the bride to pay for it but then not get me even a small gift of gratitude.

    I vote services, but I’d like a little something personal with it–it can be cheap, just something to show me the bride cares about me personally.

    I’m getting them necklaces, a bracelet and earrings and a cute little clutch that has their favorite colors on them that they can double and wear to the wedding.  I think they’ll love it because I will…

    I voted for services to be paid for. A friend of mine paid for $30.00 worth of hair/make-up and we paid the rest. She also gave us a small personalized gift. That is kinda the best of worlds. I know all of us girls really appreciated it when it came time to pay.

    I would really like the services paid for…it can get expensive and i think its a nice gesture…personalized? maybe not…but greatly appreciated…definately yes.
