I’m having a Fall wedding, so I got each of my girls a beaded black cardigan sweater to wear in case it’s chilly and I’ll be putting together gift bags or baskets filled with Fall themed goodies from Yankee Candle. The sweaters were BOGO at Old Navy and Yankee Candle is currently having a clearance sale, so I think I spent maybe $30 on each BM?

how about something homemade but useful?

Buy some nice bottles and fill with homemade lemoncello and/or kahlua?  They are easy to make and can be made ahead of time.

Or do some vanilla sugar in a nice jar (just sugar with a vanilla pod sitting in it)

Or flavored oils.

I like the candle idea.  And the Lemoncello… I think I’m also going to attempt to make each of them a clutch… but that idea will probably be scrapped because I’m lazy!

My friend makes jewelry, so I asked her to make the jewelry for each of my bridesmaids.  I’m excited and love the idea of them being handmade.  I saw the blog with the doilie tote bags a few days ago and I think I’m going to make them each one with their initials on it too.  I found some on amazon that have a separator to keep bottles from falling over when you go shopping.  In the summers in Atlanta, we used to go see a play at the park and have a picnic.  I think these totes will be perfect for something like that.

@Future Mrs Morison: No problem! So glad you liked them and got some. They were such a good deal…I just couldn’t pass them up. Plus, our theme is photos so it works perfectly!

I really like the getting a photo of them taken with their partner and framing it for them..

I would totally do this if they weren’t all single:P

If you’re painting wine glasses for them why not put a bottle of wine as part of it? You can get really decent wine in the $8-12 range and you could put something else with it…perhaps chocolates if you go red?
