    I think that is plenty! I’m buying my girls’ jewelry and giving them a nice frame with a picture of us. I would love to do more, but I just can’t afford it. I have looked at those robes and LOVE them! I would love to receive that as a bridesmaid!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    @bretonvirgniia: The price is very reasonable, and the more you buy, the cheaper they get! Our budget for bridal party gifts is $20/person (very limited, I know) so the robes would take my whole budget. Instead, I’ve found vintage jewelry for each girl (via Etsy, eBay, and thrift shops) that suit her (so she’ll wear it again) and suit her dress (mine are wearing different styles). I really think you’ve got a great idea for gifts though–don’t change a thing!

    @bretonvirgniia: ALSO they can wear the robes the day of the wedding while getting ready so no one’s hair gets messed up and you will all look cute in getting ready pics!

    I think the gift part might be something regional; I’m from Sweden and had never heard about it until I came here. That said, now I’ll get each of my bridesmaid a gift above the things I’ve arranged for them.

    Reading through your list, I think your bridesmaid will really appreciate your effort. Personally I would much rather get treated to a spa experience and some nice dinners rather then getting even more stuff that I have to find room for. ๐Ÿ™‚

    @bretonvirgniia:  Lots of chardonnay! Sauvignon blanc is also really nice. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hm, if you have out of towns bridesmaids – you should buy some Canadian wine as well. Like a Trius Brut or some ice wine.

    I think that is plenty! I had 5 bridesmaids, 1 junior, and one flowergirl. I bought the bridesmaids earrings and a bracelet for each of them. Actually most lost the back of their earrings by the reception and they were from a bridal salon! I think you are being very generous! Great ideas!

    That’s more than enough, if I was your bridesmaid I would be more than happy!
