I was wondering, three of my bridesmaids will be pregnant or will just have given birth at the time of my wedding. I was thinking of getting everyone a bag/purse that suited their style with some stuff in them that I think they would like. For the mothers/mothers to be in my wedding, I was thinking of giving them cute diaper bags. For you mamas out there, would this be a cute, helpful idea gift? Or should I just give them something non-baby related? I know that they might get inundated with baby gifts at their showers…

That’s so thoughtful of you to even consider their personal life in the gift. I personally like the idea because it’s less about you and more about them. I struggle with gifts where the bride wants their Bridesmaid or Best Man to wear it on the wedding day. Is that really a gift if it’s a required part of the outfit? So I love your idea. Of course, I’m not pregnant or a mom. So maybe others can be more insightful.

Maybe a cute bag that can double as a diaper bag. Some bags are really stylish and could do double-duty without advertising that it’s a diaper bag. You have a great idea!

i think it is a great idea…but maybe find out if she needs one first? if not, it might be superfluous. i don’t think that most moms change out diaper bags the way they might change out purses (although i don’t have kids and neither do most of my pals, so what do i know?).

I wouldn’t get them anything baby related. They would probably appreciate something a little more personal to just them. I am sure they will be wanting a break from baby stuff. Sometimes mom’s get lost in everyone else after they have a baby. It is always nice to have a little pampering that doesn’t include the baby.

Personally, having a little one myself I think that is a great idea! I would try to go for something that could double as either a diaper bag or a purse, that way they can use it either way! How thoughtful of you!

Maybe you could get all of your girls the same tote, but make it big enough so that it would be useful to a new mom? I first got my girls all little wristlets, but after thinking about it, and realizing that my Maid/Matron of Honor is a new mommy, I realized that that wasn’t very practical for her so I returned them and got them monogramed Land’s End totes. Cute for both new mommies who need to cart a lot of stuff AND the beach!

hmm i don’t know, its a toss up for me. It seems diaper bags are a real personal purchase maybe? I know for my sis, she looked for a perfect diaper bag that was the exact color and pattern / size she wanted. i know if i bought her one she wouldn’t have used it / given it away. Also some new moms may have already purchased one. BUT i’m no mommy so maybe they need more than one??
I like Miss Roots idea of a large tote.. can be used for anything 😀

I think it is really sweet and a good idea, but I am sure that they already will have diaper bags or ones picked out that they like. different bags have different features and it is really hard to choose which is best, I think I went through like 3 or 4 before I finally found the one I liked. Plus, they will get so much stuff at their showers and from family and friends. And from a mom’s point of view, it is nice to get non-baby related things! I’m still a woman and appreciate a cute bag for me! 🙂
