    That sounds like a lovely gift. The personalized note I think is a must, but the other gifts are so thoughtful!

    I would sub the Bridesmaid 2012 tshirt for something else, maybe a jewelry case/box? I can’t imagine I’d ever wear that tshirt again as a regular human.

    Yeah, unless you are having some party where yall all go out in the shirt, I would never wear something with “Bridesmaid” on it

    What a great idea for gifts!! I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man a few years ago and I received jewelry to wear on the day of the wedding and I was super happy with that by itself so I’m sure your girls will love this! I’m stealing some of your ideas! Thanks!

    I agree with KristenGettingMarried, the t shirt is something that they’d probably only wear while getting ready for the wedding. It’s not something I’d wear again.

    I think it sounds very generous and thoughtful. If I were your Bridesmaid or Best Man, I probably wouldn’t wear the t-shirt, but everything else would be nice. I say either drop the t-shirt or give a gift certificate for a massage or a girly store or something instead.

    i agree with the previous posters. i love everything, but i would replace the t-shirt with something else. i considered giving my girls bridesmaid tank tops, but then i thought, why am i going to spend my money on something they’ll only wear once or twice?

    Everything you are giving them (aside from the note) are things they would be using for your wedding. I would never wear the shirt again and the hanger is a nice touch but will likely be shoved in the back of the closet with the dress. The jewlery are accessories you are requiring them to wear the day of. 

    I’m really not trying to be harsh but you said they are paying a lot to travel to your wedding.

    @MrsElopement:  Pretty valid point here.  

    Maybe a framed picture of you and the girl?  Take them to a paint your own pottery place, and they can make a piece to keep?  Make them a CD of music?  Something that is keepsake worthy that would remind them of the day but they could keep using after your wedding?

    I think you need to be a little more personal, other then just the hanger and the note (which are great ideas). For example, I’m picking out a gift for each of my BMs that only they will get. Jewelry for one (not required to be worn at the wedding, just a pretty piece I thought she’d like), a new piece of vase and art for another because she just moved into her new house, etc.

    I’m doing a typical goodie bag as well, but these girls are flying across the country to attend my wedding and be there for me. I’m not saying to be extravagant, but something that is specific to each I think will mean more.

    i think you should send tham on an all inclusive triip to hawaii


    jk lol- i think the gifts your getting them are fine, personally I think any gifts I got as a bridesmaid were pretty cheesy unless it was something more personal of a gift that was not wedding related whatsoever, but then again would that be a bridesmaid gift or more like a birthday gift? lol i think ur fine
