I’m buying their dresses, jewelry, paying for their hotel room and hair. So, that’s their gift! I also wrote them a nice thank you not and have been sending “little gifts” throughou the process, a Bath and Body Works giftcard when we went dress shopping, etc. Just to thank them for all they do! But I only have two.

Most of the items I am making myself (hair towel and body wrap, hanger, wine glass).  I do not have a pic of mine because I am a slacker and have only bought that supplies and not put together yet.  I can send you a sample though of one on etsy.  Will find and add in a sec.

This is the style that I am doing but I did a velvet hanger to match my color so I wont have all the extra writing just the name in the metal. 


I have also seen ones that are just the wood with the name painted on the wood.  I just really like the name in wire though.

What do you think?

I am hoping none of my bridesmaids read this…since some of them are brides to be themselves! 

Anyhow, I am having a beach/destination wedding so I am doing a travel theme for their gifts.  The most expensive part were silver charms from the gift shop of the aquarium we are getting married at.  I plan to get a simple silver chain for their charm.  I got bags at Target today for 1.25 each (go look for the black dot beach totes 50% off!!!) and I am going to fill them with: monogrammed beach towels, a little travel kit with travel bottles for lotion/shampoo/conditioner, a travel sunscreen, snacks, drinks, an airplane bottle of liquor, and I plan to sew a little laundry bag for clean/dirty unmentionables (like this: http://www.popgadget.net/images/cleandirtybag.jpg).  I also attached a monogrammed luggage tag to the outside of each bag.

Do you think this is enough or should I put more into each?  With 5 BM’s it is difficult to stay in budget and every wedding I’ve ever been a part of is very minimal with the gifts.  I am not making them buy anything since my dresses are just going to be black, I like the mismatched look 🙂

I have 2 bridesmaids (my sister is Maid/Matron of Honor and my fiance’s sister is BM).

So far, I’ve got them a personalized jewelry roll from Etsy (CraftyStitches) and a Swarvoski necklace. I’m also planning on having us all get manis/pedis done a day or two before the wedding. I may stop at those 3 things, I’m undecided on a few other ideas I’ve had.

I just have a Maid/Matron of Honor (and I tend to go overboard)…

So far, I got her a tote with her initial on it and so far have a personalized metal water bottle, a personalized note pad, a clutch to use the day of the wedding from an etsy seller, a personalized mirror for her purse and I’m going to knit her a stole to wear if it’s chilly for the wedding.


Other than that, if I can afford it when the time comes, I will also pay for a hotel room for her and her husband.

I am definately getting one of these for each bridesmaid: theracktrap.com            I personally think they are genius (I hate wearing purses)! I was also thinking of getting them either a robe (mentioned above) or maybe a personalized apron? I have found some cute ones that look very girly! 🙂

Well, I am on a budget since I’m having a destination wedding also. But I think my girls will love the following:

-Personalized wine glasses

-A journal and pen ( which I wrote a nice thank you letter in each)

– a derron tote

– jewelry for the day

– a photo frame since I have set up where I will take a picture with each one separately

-and a small inspiration gift I found at dollar tree yet so cute!!!

Plus, I will be paying for all of us to stay at a suite the night before and covering hair(for some and makeup)

@splatt11x – Another idea is to go out and buy a robe that you like for your girls.

Look up embroidery shops in your local area. Those places will embroider just about anything on any material (but I would check and make sure if there’s any types they can’t use i.e. silk etc)

For my girls I am each giving them:

1) a personalized wine glass..that I am super exctied about!

2) a “friendship book”- I found a website http://www.blurb.com that you can make a book with pictures right on the page. Since my Bridesmaid or Best Man and I have been friends since we were 5 I have lots of pictures to use…Kind of doing through the years theme

3) a Bridesmaid Recovery Kit – including a beer coozie for the day of the wedding (they are all beer drinkers), extra strength advil, tums/pepto, a bottle of gatorade and a bottle of water, bedtime mask(those things you put over your eyes when you sleep), and a gift certificate to a fast food restaraunt…all to help with their hangover..We are big wedding partyer’s!
