So I’m still on the search for something nice for my ladies. I want something unique yet something that they would be able to use. I thought about some of the usual gifts like the tote bags which are nice, or the robes, maybe even the cute BRIDESMAID tee shirts but after the wedding will they REALLY use them? I figure that if I’m going to spend money on these gifts, I would LOVE to see them wearing the gifts some time after the wedding.
Today I had an epiphany…NAME NECKLACES!!!
We see a lot of girls wearing them these days and they’re actually really cute. I’ve never had one personally but I’ve always wanted to get one. At the moment I’m really narrowing down on this idea and thinking about ordering them sometime in the future but I still want to be able to customize them in some way to make them special and unique to each girl. After browsing the web for a little while I found this…
The name necklaces would make them happy for sure but having a Swarovski crystal of their birthstone would add that extra special touch to each necklace.
SERIOUSLY considering getting them.
What do you think bees?
Too much or just right?

sounds like a good gift if your girls are the type to wear that. i wouldn’t and neither would my bridesmaids- although they are cute!
i decided to go the “traditional” route and get robes, but instead of having them monogrammed to say “bridesmaid,” i got their names on them, so they can totally use them after.

I like! Great idea!
ETA: I’m one who would totally wear one of these.

You know your girls the best. If you believe it’s something they’ll wear, then go for it! I think it’s a cute idea.
ETA: When I had a bridal party, I was planning on buying their clutches, bridal jewelry, and flats for the reception. It would all be something they could use after the wedding was over as well.

Now that I have bought all the vintage mink stoles off of ebay I can now share LOL
Each bridesmaid will be able to select a vintage stole to wear, and KEEP, after the short series of black and white photos taken of them together on a vintage couch (think great gatsby!)

So far I have got my ladies a bunch of little things such as candles, nail file, make up bag, tote bag, and stationary. I also plan to decorate a wine glass for each of them and possible a robe for the day of.
