- Wedding: May 2011
I’m really starting to stress about the Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts…3 of my 4 BMs are flying here to Laudy for my wedding, and getting hotel rooms. All of my BMs are paying for their hair/makeup to be done, to the tune of $110 each. AND they all bought dresses, ranging $89-$140 (I let them pick their style from DB)…This is what I’ve come up with for Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts…I want to do a nice beach bag for them, since my wedding is on the beach, and I found the cutest bags on etsy – They’ll be in navy/aqua (wedding theme) and instead of a palm tree they’ll have a starfish (wedding theme)…And we all LOVE/ADORE/WORSHIP Michael Kors for handbags and shoes, so I’m putting these flip flops in the bags, along with a beach towel (just a cheapola one) and sunscreen, and possibly the Aloha lotion from Vic Secret.
I only paid $16 for the bags, and the flip flops are $30, let’s say miscellaneous items add another $15 to each bag.
Is this enough? Is it still a nice gift? I’m hoping there’s a higher “perceived” value to the bags. But either way, I want them to feel like I gave them a nice gift since they’re doing so much to be here for me:)
Tell me your thoughts! Am I too cheap at this point? Should I add anything? We have SO many wedding expenses, I’m just desperately trying to do something nice for them, that they can use and isn’t wasteful, but for a not-ridiculous price.
