@MrsTickledPink:  It’s nice of you to want to include them, but I wouldn’t go overboard.They might be secretly glad that they didn’t have to shell out for bridesmaid dresses etc.

I think you are being generous enough and there is no need to add anything else.

@MrsTickledPink:  Will they have to bring the wine glasses home? A bit risky.

When you say “silk gown”, do you mean a robe? You could add some slippers and maybe a mani/pedi kit.

@Tools Yassas!  I am also GO and planning a destination wedding in a very small Greek village.  Where is your family’s village? (you can PM me)

I don’t know where you are from, but I’m in the US & we have bridesmaids here, but in Greece there are no bridesmaids.  I understand about the gift bags & traditions – Greeks are big on gifts.  I would give something small but lasting. Maybe a trinket from that region (if they are not from Greece) like a small marble figurine, matia, or Evsone doll. 

Good Luck to you and let’s keep in touch
