I planning to spend $50 each, maybe a little more. But I don’t include ANYTHING i want picture of as a “gift”. So their jewwelry will NOT be considered as part of their gift, even though I’m giving it to them.

I’m budgeting about $100 per Bridesmaid or Best Man, but I only have 2.  I think it just depends on what you can afford and what they are spending for your wedding.  My girls didn’t have to buy a dress, shoes, jewelry, hair/make-up or bachelorette party, so I feel that $100 is adequate.  If my girls had to spend more, I’d definitely feel like I would need to spend more.

I spent about $100/bridesmaid.  I’d budgeted $75 and bought them that amount in non-wedding related gifts.  However, we had a little snafu with the dresses and they ended up charging us an extra $35 bucks before they’d hand them over, and I didn’t want to go back to the girls with that info so I just paid it.

I’m not from a ritzy part of the country, $50 is more than expected from any bridesmaid. I think a card and a nice pair of earrings or a dainty necklace would be very appreciated (at least that’s what I would enjoy… I’m not much of a gift/stuff person)

originally i budgeted $50…well we are having a Destination Wedding and they are paying for the trip, dress, shoes and hair and make up(at their own request). So now im at $100 for their gifts, which I dont mind…plus we had some things come up cheaper in our budget so i could  spread the cost. i feel bad bc i feel like i should have paid for their dresses or something but that wasnt in the budget for 4 bms. oh well i hope they like what they are getting!

I plan on spending about $100 for each of my 10 bridesmaids gifts. I’m not exactly sure what I will get them, but it won’t be anything for the wedding. I was thinking of getting them bracelets from Alex and Ani and subscriptions to Birch Box.
