I love all of my bridesmaids, but one is very different than the rest. She’s not a girly girl, so all my gift ideas (bags, perfume bottles, clutches ect) wouldn’t work for her because she wouldn’t like/use it. Should I get my other three BMs something that I know they will like and just get the other one something different? Or will this make things awkaward for her since she got something no one else did? Wedding is in a few weeks so PLEASE HELP!

I would give her something else. It doesn’t make sense to waste money on a gift that she doesn’t like and will never use. That’s not the purpose of a gift 😉

all the bm gifts don’t have to be the same. not everyone has the same taste. you wouldn’t buy everyone the same thing at christmas?
get her something she will use. i am sure she would appreciate it more.

@mypinkshoes: Very good point! But I wanted to get all the other girls different versions of the same thing. I found some really cute perfume bottles I was looking at getting. Would that still be apropriate?

I don’t see any issue with tailoring her gift to her own preferences. I might try to get something a bit more specific for all the girls if I was going that way though.

@nrieder: perfume bottles sound cute (but maybe not for the one). you know what they will like. ask yourself, what would i get so&so for a special birthday?
when i was trying to decide on gifts (i don’t need many), i looked at the typical stuff and my Fiance insisted that we should get them something they will use and not the tradition crap. example: my adult son, who will be standing up with me, will never use a flask with his name or a pen with his initials so we are getting him a set of henckels knives; he loves to cook.
when i thought about it this way, it was soooo much easier to choose their gifts.
