Wonderful idea! but maybe go for a bracelet? 140 is a lot but i guess that would depend on how many bridesmaids you have! i would LOVE to get that 🙂 if i had the budget for it i would!

How many bridesmaids are you having and is it something that you feel you can comfortably afford? I am considering getting my Maid/Matron of Honor a Tiffany Key necklace but she is my only bridesmaid and is my sister.

I think its a very generous gift. If they are paying for their dress, shoes and accessories and are close to you, I think its ok, as long as you can afford it. How many bm’s do you have?

I think it’s a great idea, I have been thinking of doing this for my bridesmaids as well!

Are you planning on spending $140/bridesmaid anyways? If you are, I say go for it. I wouldn’t go outside of my budget for it though, since it is a rather extravagant extra.

I think it sounds great, and I agree, I’d rather get a necklace than the mani/pedi. Do you think they’ll all like the necklace? What does it look like?

Will you have the bridesmaids wear the Tiffany necklaces IN the wedding?  If so, I think that the gesture likely would be pretty well received by all involved. You would have the “look” that you want for the wedding, and each maid benefits from receiving as a gift a very nice, fairly expensive necklace that she may not have ever been able to purchase for herself at this time in her life.) 

However, if the necklaces are not going to be worn in the wedding, a bridesmaid who may really be stretching herself financially to pay for her expenses to be in your wedding may have thoughts running through her mind such as, “If she can afford to pay for these expensive necklaces for us, I would have preferred that she would have just offered to pay that much toward our bridesmaids’ dresses instead.” I”m not saying that a bridesmaid should expect a bride to offer to pay for such expenses, only that someone could possibly feel this way under those circumstances.

@sweetpeony: I agree then, the necklaces would be lovely.

I think if you can afford it, it’s an awesome idea!

I got a cross from Tiffany’s for a bridesmaid gift a while back.  I thought it was exravagent, but very nice!

I love the theme! If you can afford it I say go for it! I wanted to get my girls a Tiffany necklace too. The letter one? So they’d each get their own letter and could wear it after the wedding. But my Future Sister-In-Law is very high maintenance and I could see the $150 necklace being wasted on her as she does not wear anything that is not gold or platinum. Plus, it was a big stretch for our budget.

Honestly, I agree with Brielle here. I have one necklace I wear all the time pretty much all the time so it would be wasted on me. And my thought would be, “she can drop this much on a necklace I won’t wear, why not just pay for the outfit I have to wear for her wedding?” I think the idea is nice, but make sure it is something they will wear and appreciate.
