I am going to give my girls their gift at the rehearsal the night before the wedding. I got them a pink VS silk robe for getting ready in, a teal seaglass starfish necklace to wear with their dresses and flip flops that I decorated myself with teal ribbon and flowers. I got the robes at VS semi-annual sale so I saved there, the necklaces were from etsy seller BostonSeaGlass and the flops were from old navy!

I got mine a bracelet from Swarovski and a framed picture of us 4 at my shower.  I’m giving it out to them at the rehearsal dinner.

I got my BM’s clutches that match our wedding colours. They will be handy to have for the reception and for future events the girls may have. We are also going to use them for some group pictures.

I got them from an etsy seller. She personalized the cluthes and worked with me to find the perfect fabric. https://www.etsy.com/transaction/82137600 I also got one for myself 😉

In the clutches I am putting a personalized pocket mirror, again from etsy, https://www.etsy.com/transaction/83054624 some lip gloss, and a mini bottle of their favourite liquor.

I am going to give them their gifts at the rehearsal.

@jennyDtobe:  OOOOO you’re doing my exact idea!!!! Was getting the bright purple for them, but I’m wondering if maybe I want to let them all get their own color (not black or white or print) but that doesnt leave many colors for 6 girls, did you find any other brands in your search?

I’m giving them jewelry to wear the day of the wedding and I’m giving it to the day of the wedding. The jewelry will depend upon the dress they end up choosing, so it’ll either be a necklace, bracelet, or earrings.

I’m of the mindset that jewelry for the wedding day is a perfectly fine gift and the gift doesn’t need to *not* be wedding related. This is handmade or vintage jewelry from etsy that they can wear again and again, if they choose.

I’m giving my BMs Kate Spade earrings in a pretty monogrammed jewelry box (I actually won 10 custom heart-shaped jewelry boxes from a giveaway from Emmaline Bride!) and a monogrammed robe (I ordered the robes from JC Penny). I’m going to have a bridesmaid luncheon the day before the wedding (nothing fancy, probably will order sushi or Thai take-out and work on last-minute crafts or lay by the pool!) and I will give them their gifts them. Or I might give them their gifts during the rehearsal dinner. Anyways, the plan is to give them their gifts before the day of the wedding so they can wear the jewelry to the wedding, and wear the robes while we’re getting ready.

My bridesmaids got robes to get ready in, their jewelry to wear the day of (earrings, necklace, bracelet), a clutch, undies, a bottle of wine, a personalized wine glass, and a personlized tote that held it all

@BellaDeeI did a TON of searching online for a good price because I have 6 girls (7 plus my neice) and I really did not want to spend a fortune. Before I found the good deal at VS, I found this website in my search: 

http://www.weddingprepgals.com/

I thought their prices were good and the robes are super cute and come in lots of colors. If I hadn’t found the pink ones at VS, I probably would have gotten the teal ones from this website!

There are also a lot on Etsy, although some of them are quite pricey. 

Goodluck! I hope this helps!!

I’m DIYing custom goody-bags for each of my girls.  Each one is getting a framed picture of us with the verse ‘A Girlfriend is a Sister You Choose,’ a wrist clutch in their favorite colors, and assorted goodies related to their individual interests.  For example, one collects owls, so all her gifts are owl-themed…

I decided to give my girls gift cards to Victoria’s Secret and tank tops for when we are getting ready that morning as well as what I put above.  I didn’t like the idea that I only got them one thing.. the picture didn’t really count to me.

I’m gifting mine hair and makeup if they chose to get it done, I got them each silk scarves and jewelry pouches from a recent trip to China, I’m buying earrings that suit them each individually from Etsy (and putting it in the jewelry pouches), a bottle of wine that reminds me of them, and maybe a book that I think they would enjoy. 

I still feel like it’s not enough. They have done so freaking much for me that I don’t think I could put a price on it!

I’m only having my sister as my MOH(no other bridesmaids).  I’m paying for her dress, shoes, jewelry to wear with the dress and for her hair and makeup to be done. I’ll likely buy her more stuff too, just haven’t decided what.

We gave our two attendants the same basic thing, a cooler embroidered with their nickname, filled with the local beer that we were serving at the wedding.

We really wanted both of them to have something they’d really use, and both of them are frequenters of the beach and picnics and music festivals, so we knew they’d get a lot of use of these.
