hi ladies! i’ve gotten most of my gifts together for my girls and i’m wondering if i should be getting something extra for my maids of honor (i have 2). i got all of the girls monogramed totes, and i’m putting some goodies inside. i’m making them clutches and belts for their dresses. i’m also putting a mani/pedi gift card inside for the day before the wedding. should i put a little something extra in the maids of honor’s totes? i’m not sure the protocol on wedding gift giving, so i’d apprecaite your help! thanks so much for your help!

I probably wont, just because my Maid/Matron of Honor and 2 other bridesmaids are my sisters, so I don’t want to seem like I’m giving one more than the others. Especially since they are all helping me a lot with the planning and getting ready for the wedding.
But if you think your MOHs deserve a little something extra, you could give them something like a personalized mug or necklace, or really anything they would like.

Hah! I’m in the same exact boat. I’m doing totes or makeup bags with small goodies and a mani-pedi gift cert in it. I have 8 girls – 6 Bridesmaid or Best Man & 2 Maid/Matron of Honor.
I am def. going to do something for my MOHs but I’m not sure what yet. I feel like I have to do something extra special for them, since they’ve put a lot more time & effort into my wedding than the other girls have. My mom’s kind of a pain in the butt and heaven only knows what they’ve put up with while setting up my shower, keeping it secret, etc. Plus, the 2 of them are in charge of setting up my bachelorette party and they’re keeping that mostly a secret from me too. I want to get them something really nice in addition to the other girls, but I’m not sure what yet.

I got mine a point and shoot digital camera refurbished by Olympus from Ebay. I knew she’d be traveling but didn’t have a camera. I kept it “secret” though b/c i didn’t want to make anyone think I was playing favorites. I just wanted to do something nice for her since she planned the bachelorette and she could really use the camera. I wouldn’t have gotten her any extra bridesmaid-esque gift though. It was very reasonably priced and had a warranty. I couldn’t spend the full $$s for it with everything else and it seemed like a good compromise.

A lot of people do give their MOH’s a little something extra. I don’t think its mandatory. If you feel so inclined, then go for it. But she shouldn’t be expecting something different.
