    IMO I think its okay. Obviously the maid of honor has a little bit of a higher place than the Bridesmaid or Best Man. Just make sure you give the Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts at that time or before to show how much you appreciate them as well 🙂

    Welcome to the hive!  Honestly, I think your FH is right.  I know that if I were a Bridesmaid or Best Man I would feel left out.  Besides, after the wedding, do you really thing she will wear it again?  What about doing matching tshirts instead, you can get some cheap ones on vistaprint or another inexpensive place.  You can even make your own iron ons with special paper that goes through a regular printer.

    I think I would be a little offended if I were a Bridesmaid or Best Man…

    I was going to suggest doing the t-shirts as well. I thought about doing the sweatsuit, but then realized I will never wear a sweatsuit that has “bride” on it again (and neither would my MOH). I am going to buy a hoodie/zip-up and pants from Victorias Secret that I will wear again and then have a cute tank made to wear under it. Just an idea.. : )

    I agree with PP that as a Bridesmaid or Best Man I would be feel left out for sure.  Go ahead and have some shirts made for everyone though!

    And I agree that the Maid/Matron of Honor will prob never wear that jacket again.

    I love your idea of doing something special for your Maid/Matron of Honor.  The jacket does sound expensive for something she’ll probably only wear that one day while getting ready though.

    As far as shirts for everyone, I suggest button up or tank tops so hair doesn’t get messed up.  Or possibly buy cheap zip-up hoodies and have the back screen printed? 

    I got my Maid/Matron of Honor a special hanger with her first name on it so she could hang her dress on it but still use it after the wedding (from blackscrapcat on etsy.com):

    @tstephens:  I like the oversized button down shirt idea, and you can even get her initial embroidered on it if you want to personalize it. Or just find a big Bride/MOH button to put on them.  That way you both can wear them while getting ready, and you won’t mess up your hair. You can probably find somethign similar at a store like Gap (But without the weird biker shorts…):

    As much as I empathize with your desire to do something special for your sister, I think it might cause hard feelings. Besides, who really is ever going to wear it again?

    If you want to give something special to your sister, do something away from the rest of the BM’s. Take her to lunch or have a mani/pedi together. Or, give her something privately and ask her not to mention it to the BM’s.

    If you want the cute ” we are the bridal party” look, you can get hoodies at K Mart for $8 for all the girls to wear. You have already purchased them very generous gifts, so this is only if you want that look.
