No way! That is overly generous. Just do the bm luncheon and thank them and be done with it.

I think if your BMs are going above and beyond the call of duty, say, travelling to the wedding, putting on a wedding shower and/or bachelorette party, taking any time off from work, etc. a small gift would be nice. I think the gift of purchasing the dress is plenty, though, assuming your girls haven’t poured a small fortune into other aspects of the wedding.

Just write a personal hand written card to give to them.  Maybe slide a photo with the two of you in it.

The dress is gift enough but i would add a hand writtten card and or photo like lefeymw suggested since the dress is technically more for you than for them.

If you do, I would make it something that didn’t cost a lot, but would mean a lot.  Maybe a handwritten note with a picture of you and your bridesmaid together on your wedding day?

My bridal shop is giving us free necklaces since we bought our dresses there.  They are really simple, but pretty.   I would check into that.

I would def write them a card and still just get them something inexpensive since the dress is nice but still something for the wedding. I’ve gotten inexpensive necklaces as gifts that were less than $20.

I think that the dresses should be there gifts. That would seem fair to me if i was a bridesmaid.
