My bridesmaids are all wearing different styles of dusty pink/peach colored chiffon dresses. I’m trying to decide on gifts for them, and can’t figure out if I should give them wedding day jewelry or not. I don’t really want to, because their dresses have different necklines and some may not want to wear necklaces, so it would just be a matter of matching earrings. I am thinking about giving them the option of accessorizing however they want to (shoes and jewelry) but is that too overwhelming? Do you think it is easier if the bride just chooses specific shoes and jewelry? I guess I feel like since they will all look slightly different anyways, then it would also be fun for them to have different jewelry and shoes. They all have great style so I’m not too worried about their choices.
So, then would it be weird to give them more unique, non-wedding day jewelry as part of a gift?

I think it would be nicer if you shopped for each Bridesmaid or Best Man like it is their birthday. No need to get anything matching, embroidered, engraved, etc. I would rather get a gift I can use again that suits my style than something intended to be a part of my Bridesmaid or Best Man “uniform”. I think they would appreciate the opportinuty to accessorize as they see fit, since not everyone has the same taste in jewelry, and not everyone would be comfortable in the same type of shoe. Let them pick it out, or get them jewelry that is as individualized as they are.

Im having similar colours to you and BMs are also wearing different dresses. I have got them a few gifts but wanted them to have something to wear on the day so i made my own bracelets using beads in the dress colours. Im hoping they will love them and apreciate that ive put time and thought into their gifts.(they are all slightly different) You can make them special eg- i put on a charm that says ‘handmade with love’ 🙂 hope this helpsxx

@DaneLady: I completely agree with you. I don’t feel like it really says “thank you” if it has to be worn in the wedding. Although, I have appreciated and reworn a lot of Bridesmaid or Best Man jewelry that I’ve received. Guess I have 4 “birthdays” to shop for now! 🙂
@princesslea: They will love the bracelets! I am not crafty at all so I’m avoiding making anything…but I think that is such a lovely, personal idea! Bracelets are great too because they won’t clash with different necklines!
We are commissioning an artist friend to design beautiful mugs for our entire wedding party. I just want to add some small girly things to the gift…
