I got earrings for them to wear.  They never even asked me what kind of jewelry to wear so for sure I got them all different but similar earrings!

Hey! 

I can tell you what I am getting my bridesmaids. I have 3 and a Maid/Matron of Honor.

Well, I bought them the Colin Cowe wedding book when they agreed to be my bridesmaids (one between my finance’s two sisters). They are normally 95, but were on sale at B&N in Manhattan for $5 (talk about a deal!!!)

Then after the bought their dresses I gave them each a $10 Starbucks gift card and my bridesmaid (who is my cousin) and lives in Holland a leather luggage tag.

Now they just paid for their make up and I am getting them monogrammed compacts and for his little sisters a little jewelry case that will have their last name on it.

For the actual wedding I am giving them roves (monogrammed), flip flops and totes (monogrammed). 

I was also going to give them a Tiffany’s necklace, but thought against it since I am taking them to lunch at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills and they are not doing anything for me (no bach party, no bridal shower, nada) In their defense two of them are under 18, one lives in LA and the other lives in Europe while I am in San Francisco for the year leading up to my wedding. (the wedding is in LA) however, I just feel like they re very disinterested and disconnected from the process, even though I am very excited about it. So that’s that… and their dresses cost $300 and their hair and make up cost $270 (so I got even, haha)

Ipod nanos in all different colors!  They’ve really come down in price and I know my girls will use them!

 

EDIT:  I mean SHUFFLES!  Holy crap, I’m not made of money.  Nano’s are still rather pricey.  Especially for five girls!

I got them these adorable totes in their fave color with their names (see example below) from the knot. The other day I also found gold flip flops. I’m stuffing the bag with those, chocolate, tylenol, hand snitizer, water, chapstick, and other day off things they might need. I also want to get them necklaces and then I will be done.

@VirginiaMarie, I was like whoa, that’s pretty awesome! Haha, shuffles are also awesome though. And they are so cute!

I just have a Maid/Matron of Honor. So far, I’ve gotten her a monogram mug from Anthropologie, and I’m going to get her some jewelry that suits her style, some Badger brand lip balm (on Wisconsin!), and some other little things, including her favorite treats like chewy Spree. 🙂

I’m getting my girls the pictured tote bag monogrammed, a monogrammed mug, a necklace from etsy and maybe some makeup that I’ll either ask them about or pick out some favorites (I stole that idea from another post on here!)

I got all of my ladies Coach wristlets… I got them on sale so they weren’t too expensive (about $30/wristlet). For me personally, I really didnt want to get them anything to do with the wedding (jewelry to wear, hair, make-up, etc). I let them pick their own dresses & shoes and really don’t care what jewelry they wear, or what their hair or makeup looks like- as long as they feel beautiful and happy, I’m happy.  Anyhow, getting them something wedding-related felt just a tad self-serving to *me*. Instead, I really wanted to get them something they would love, that they could use all of the time and that would remind them of the fun we had on my wedding day… Mostly, though I wanted the gift to express my gratitude to them for standing behind me on my big day. Not sure if Coach does that, but hopefully the card helps 🙂
