We are having a Destination Wedding wedding in St Lucia. I feel like the robe and tank are just wedding related and not really personal. I thought of buying swimsuit cover ups so that they can wear them more than just once. Not sure what to do because I love all three, but my budget will not allow it!
My plan for Bridesmaids gifts are:
-I am buying their bridesmaids dresses
-Jewelry to wear with dresses
-Personalized Beach Tote: Already purchased
-Waterproof phone case
-Tank/ Robe/ or Swimsuit coverup….
-OR Tank plus a Victoria’s Secret Gift Card

How awesome that you are able to buy their bridesmaid dresses! That to me is very thoughtful. I say go with the gift card so that they can pick something out (or put it towards something) that they have been eyeing. I understand the want to get the swimsuit cover (it goes with your destination wedding) but chances are, they probably will have packed the ones they have and if they are anything like me, their suitcases are probably already full to the brim! ha!

I love the idea of a coverup!! I’m also having a dw in Hawaii so I might steal this lol. I hate robes and threw the one I recieved as a Bridesmaid or Best Man in the corner of my closet never to be seen again.

You are a very thoughtful bride. I voted for floral robe. But I’d like swimsuit cover equally.

I’m a fan of reusable and practical gifts, so I vote for swimsuit coverups. I think they’ll be a good choice since it fits into your theme, but they’ll be able to use it whenever they go for a swim as well.
ETA: Great gifts BTW!

Thank you all for the responses!! I am trying to give them as much as I can because it is definitely an expensive trip! 🙂

All the gifts you have got are lovely (and it’s so sweet of you to buy their dresses for them) but are related to your wedding in some way. Even if you buy the swimsuit cover up, it still goes with the wedding and you still (I’m presuming) have plans on getting photos with everyone in them etc.
That’s why my vote is for the gift card so that your girls can get themselves something personal that they will love and wear/use regularly.
