One of my bridesmaids brought some purse hangers she owned with her and let others use them… they were a super hit.  I’d never even heard of them before.  They seem like a sweet idea and one that I don’t believe tons of people own yet?

You could get personalized ones here:


It looks like there’s discounts for bulk orders?

How olds your flower girl?  I am thinking of getting them barbie in a wedding dress.

For our 2 year old Flower Girl, we got a fairy outfit (tutu and wings/wand, made by an Etsy seller) since she loved playing dress-up. We also got her a pretty pearl bracelet, and a basket filled with play things for the reception (coloring books,crayons, little snack bags and juice cups).

BM’s gifts can be anything you want to get them, and the robes are a good start. My daughters went overboard on their Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts, but the BM’s & Maid/Matron of Honor were their sisters.

Parent gifts can range anywhere from a weekend away to a B&B, or a day at the spa,dinner for two to somewhere they might never go….or really anything you feel is personal…your choice. There’s lots of good ideas on this site if you look around a bit.

i’m still undecided about what i’m giving my girls. they’re getting personalized tote bags w/ incidentals they may need the day of the wedding (chapstick, doublestick tape, band aids, etc), but their “real” gift has yet to be decided.

our flower girl is getting a survival kit too (snacks, a coloring book, etc) and i think we’re giving her a pearl necklace/bracelet set and a tiara. i like the wedding day barbie idea, tho. i hadn’t thought of that before!

our parents’ gifts are part of our photography package. they will be getting an 11×14 print. since we’re getting a cd with all our pictures, we’ll probably put an album together for them too. and i think we’ll probably give them a gift card to one of their favorite places too.

For the BMs, we’re giving them UNICEF tote bags, personalized hangers off Etsy, and we’re paying to have their hair and make-up done (though, it can be done however they like it, or not at all if they prefer).

For the FGs (we have 3), we’re giving them a pearl jewelry set to wear on the wedding day. We might also get them some kind of toy, but we’re undecided.

For the parents, we’re giving them embroidered handkerchiefs (again, Etsy). We’re also getting the moms personalized hangers like the BMs, and I got my mom a fancy old-fashioned-style address stamp that I’ll be using on the invitations and RSVP envelopes. I let her pick out the style, since she’ll keep it after the wedding. After the pictures come back, we’re planning to order some photobooks off Snapfish or one of those sites for our parents, too.

We are getting our parents both gift cards to really nice restaurants that they like. 

For my FG’s (one is 3 and one s 5) I made them Build-a-Bears and my fiance and I recorded a message that plays when their hand is squeezed and just says “We love You!” and we dressed them in little bride outfits. They are super cute!

For the bms, they are my sisters and fiance’s sisters, so I found these really cute bracelets that have inscriptions on them about being a sister and they are really cute, but aren’t for the wedding. Then I think we are getting everyone (including the groomsmen) funny tshirts from snorg tees, just because I know they would all love them and we could get each person a different one, but they would all get a tshirt. Then we are doing someting else, but I am not sure what that is yet.
