Hmm…I don’t have anything rustic, sorry! But I gave my ladies Coach wristlets that I got from the outlet store for ridiculously cheap! Also got them their jewelry and a jewelry roll with their names embroidered on them.

I got my girls their jewelry, and I’m also getting their sashes for their dresses and I”m currently looking for short sleeved black hoodies that I can personalize.

I am hoping to get them all black fur stoles, hopefully their dresses will be a long black mermaid-y type style…

I bought them tot bags off Ebay. They’re black and their initial in bright pink. Now I have to figure out what to put in them… I bought them their earrings and necklaces while with them so I can’t do jewlery. I was thinking pjs, but I don’t know sizes… and if I ask, it will be obvious.

I need suggestions too please!!!

Instead of buying jewelry and flasks that the wedding catalogs say you absolutely must buy, that no one really wants, we’re shopping for everyone as though it was Christmas or their birthday. That way, they get something they actually like and are able to get use out of.

 

As an example, if one is into cooking, get them a cookbook or gadget they may enjoy. If another is into sports, get them something related to that.

I don’t know about rustic, but I am getting each of them a Coach wristlet.  I’ll put their jewelry and a lipgloss inside.

I am giving my two readers funky travel jewelry bags I found on Etsy, as well as big chunky cocktail rings.

I got them all these necklaces:

I got them in different colors for each girl. Luckily, I live in Chicago where the jewelry designer in based, so I was able to go to the store and order them in person 🙂

They were a HUGE hit. They all loved them, and they’re always telling me they get tons of compliments wherever they go. I ended up getting one for myself, and I’ve gotten a lot of compliments as well.

I am getting my girls each a monogrammed tote bag with a monogrammed bathrobe inside. I’m giving them their gifts when we go out of town for my bachelorette party, this way they can use their robes when we have a spa day (they can also wear it while we are getting our hair and makeup done they day of)! I also may include their jewelry if I can find something they all like. any suggestions on where to find cheap but classy jewelry? I’m thinking maybe Simply Vera by Vera Wang at Kohls.com??

So far I am getting them flip flops and a shawl.  I’m covering their hair and makeup and any jewelry I end up asking them to wear.

I love the bathrode idea (I’m also doing the tot bags!). But where do you get them monogrammed?? I have no idea where to do for something like that… I could do ebay but it’s really expensive to get anything shipped to Canada.

I got them canvas bags with their names embrordered on them. Inside i’m putting t-shirts that are personalized and matching flip flops  (something to wear while we get ready!), toe nail polish that matches the dress, and i wrote them all a letter. I’m thinking of getting them a bracelet too with a charm that is personal. We are going kind of rustic/country, so i’ve tossed around the idea of cowboy hats… not sure yet though! 🙂

@Sunshine, if there are any embroidery shops in your area, they will do that for you inexpensively. Look in the phone book to see who is available.

Ooooh, Where is a good source for robes? I love that idea. I’m also giving my girls a sauna and mani/pedi day on the day before my wedding and I’m giving them their hair and make-up so I love the idea of doing robes. Any good sources?
