@Beansy:

The Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts are there to thank them for being in your wedding and sticking with you during such a special time. I think pick-your-own Tiffany’s Jewellery is a lovely idea for a thank-you gift. It makes it more special to each of them. The gifts are definitely not just a wedding party favour.

Can I be one of your bridesmaids!!! I would love to give my girls something so amazing and thoughtful.  They will fully understand that it is their thank you gift- but if you wanted you could have them all pick out what they like and then hold on to them until the rehersal dinner and present them as a gift.  Just a thought.  Otherwise a nice thank you note the night before the wedding would be nice.

I think you should politely tell your Future Mother-In-Law that the gift is a souvineer, but something you would really like worn in the wedding.  It is your wedding and you should have a say in what jewelry they wear.  If Future Sister-In-Law doesnt want to wear what you are getting her, tell her she has to get a different peice of Tiffany’s jewelry (on her dime) to wear- so that she will match the rest of the girls in that aspect.

Normally I would say jewelry to be worn on the big day is not really a thank you gift because the girls may not wear it again, but Tiffany’s jewelry is a whole different ball game. This should be considered both part of the wedding attire and their gift. The fact that you are letting each girl pick out their own unique piece makes it something more than just a necklace that five other girls got. Don’t listen to your Future Mother-In-Law. You can ask the girls to wear the jewelry for the wedding. This will probably help off set their costs, because they don’t have to buy specific jewelry to go with their bridesmaid dresses.
