We didn’t plan it this way – but we will spend about the same on each wedding party member!

Yes, I personally do think that the gifts should be somewhat equal. If we’re talking a matter of dollars then no one would know or care but if there is a considerable price difference or one group gets a bag of goodies while the other gets like a pair of socks, I do think that may be a little off putting for the group getting shafted.

we are planning to spend about the same. However, since you have more Groomsmen the Bridesmaid or Best Man it makes since that the guys are getting less.

We spent the same. I was actually going to spend less on my girls but my husband told me the price he was thinking of, so I upped it. I didn’t want the girls to feel less important.

I don’t know if it should be equal, but ours most likely won’t end up being equal. Due to the fact that I am gifting my maids with their accessories, as well as gifts that aren’t wedding day related, I will end up spending more than my Fiance on his guys. I know my Fiance has never used any of the gifts he has ever received, and never really gotten overly excited about any of them. I like the cigar idea…they will all smoke them in celebration on that night, and it will be a fun bonding thing to do as buddies. I wouldn’t stress about it.

I don’t think they have to be exactly the same in price, but they should ‘seem’ the same. Fiance hasn’t yet decided what he’s gifting them, but we’re buying their ties and socks, I think the girls may just get hair/makeup and a bracelet – I need to ask them what they’d prefer.

We will be spending about half as much on the guys.. maybe less! :

The guys won’t really care though, they’re all pretty low maintenance!!
