FutureDrAtkins:  Is that necklace Owl Origami?  If not, looks just like it!

klhubb:  It’s not! But it kind of does, doesn’t it? I got my first piece from them last summer from my mom. Soo cool!

FutureDrAtkins:  Love the necklace! Is it from etsy? If so, would you mind spilling the beans on the seller as I’d love to check out their work!

  • Wedding: May 2014 - Madison, WI

I just put together my bridesmaids gifts this week.

  • Thank You Card
  • Kate Spade Anchors Away Necklace
  • Anthropologie Monogram Mug
  • Picture frame with a note that I will owe them a photo of us together on the big day.
  • Starbucks Gift Card
  • Small BM’s Kit – tissue etc

So something like this…

For parents I am getting both my parents a personalized handkerchief from ETSY and for all the parents an IOU for a wedding photo album which I plan to put together myself/order online.

Front of IOU Card:

Back of Card:

Fiance is still sorting out what to get the groomsmen.

So far I have part of the bridesmaids’ gifts, the flower girl’s gift and my dad’s gift.

Starting from the top left, clockwise:

Bracelet for the bridesmaids

Personalized tote bag for bridesmaids

Personalized tote bag for flower girl

Tie Patch & Tie for my dad

I am going to add a tumbler to the bridesmaids’ tote bags and gift them their favorite liquor (have to figure something different out for my preggo BM) and then those gifts will be done.

I am going to add a bracelet & earring set to the flower girl’s bag along with an activity book and crayons.

My dad is pretty much finished… I actually got him 2 ties, one for the wedding & one for whenever he wants to wear it.  The tie patch will go on the blue one showed though & that’s the wedding one.  For after the wedding/Father’s Day I am going to frame a picture of us dancing and write the lyrics to our Father-Daughter dance on a mat surrounding the frame.

I haven’t figured anything out for the mothers.  My mom has mentioned she wants to wear a pashmina on the wedding day since her dress is strapless, so I might get one for her.  FMIL loves owls, and I saw a PP’s owl necklace that was pretty, but I would also like a meaningful gift.  I’ve seen the keychains, hankerchiefs, etc with the saying, “Thank you for raising the man of my dreams.  Love, Bride” and I like those.

For my groom I am getting a GoPro camera… his request ๐Ÿ™‚  He is gifting his groomsmen belts for the wedding day and ties like the one I got my dad.

Ms_Purple:  I love you the “we owe you a photo album” card … we think we’re going to do this for our parents but I hadn’t come up with any sort of clever IOU like that!

For our two bridesmaids: Tote bags, Robe, Clutch, Jewellery, Pashmina, Candle, Body Bar, one personalised gift (amusing journal for Maid/Matron of Honor, pug scarf for BM)

For groomsmen: Cufflinks, messenger bags

Seems like the girls get the biggest spoils but 90% of it is stuff for the wedding so I wanted to add a couple of extra things.

dms0622:  I bought small makeup/wet bags for the emergency kits for my girls ๐Ÿ™‚ Found from an Aussie seller on Etsy but sure you could find something local ๐Ÿ™‚
