I’m not sure about how the pearls look, but I was looking at things remembers for my bridal party.  And their stuff isn’t as nice quality as before.  I ended getting all our personalized items from other stores or etsy sellers.  I would pick pearls over things remembered.

I have four bridesmaids.  I’m giving them:

-Hot pink cashmere pashminas (that was a last-minute addition, actually)
-Sterling silver necklaces with tiny circle pendants with their lowercase initials on them
-Ceramic bowls from Etsy (palomasnest), each with a different word or phrase
I don’t expect them to use any of these items for the wedding, they are just things I know they will enjoy.
I think we’re going to pay for anyone’s makeup who wants it, too.
In the past, I received a very nice peridot bracelet as a gift. Everyone got something different and to their personality- again, not necessarily for the wedding.  I’ve also gotten a tote full of goodies (edible treats, a wine stopper, flipflops, a cool bracelet).  That was nice.

I got each of mine a monogrammed land’s end tote bag in their favorite colors, and am filling them with cute odds and ends that I think they’ll like, plus a "bridesmaids survival kit" filled with little things they might need along the way. 

Also, I am having custom necklaces made for each of them.  I haven’t received them yet, but I have to rave about my experience so far with Kerri Hale (kerrihale.etsy.com)…. She is wonderful to work with and very reasonable price-wise.

I got everyone a pashmina and personalized stationery (from BellaBluDesigns on Etsy). I also got everyone a more personal gift (one of them got a clutch, someone else got a journal, that kind of thing). I got the pashminas from Amazing Collections — Ruth has been great to work with and she gave me a 10% discount for bridal parties.

I am not sure what I am doing yet, but since I am getting married in july  I was thinking of buying those little baskets that you used to get toys in when you were little to go to the beach, and filling it with a beach towel (maybe mongrammed or is that silly?), flip flops, a book or subscription to a magazine I know they will like, lotion, hair products, makeup, etc.  I think I am skipping jewelry because I don’t even know how to buy that for myself so the thought of pickiing it out for other people is too much for me!

I got pearls for my girls (along with some other items) from http://www.shaneco.com. They are freshwater, but have more of a cultured pearl look. If you want to see the rest of my gifts (too long to type), feel free to check out my blog. It is a recent entry http://www.mint2betogether.blogspot.com 🙂

Where did you buy the Pashimas? Did you get them online?  I’ve been looking for a good deal so I can get some for my BMs to put in their gift baskets.  

My plan for my Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts is to have a "relax" theme,  so I’m getting them Slippers, a Pashima, a book (I’ll get each one a different book so they can swap later), and a arroma therapy candle. And I’m going to put all of it in a monogram tote bag.   Of course I haven’t bought any of it yet… I need to get on that soon 🙂

I ended up buying this bracelet from Things Remembered with my girls names engraved on one side and "Bridesmaid" on the other.

Then, I am going to buythem a charm after each of our wedding events. For example, my bridal shower was a "Ladies tea party" so I got them this tea pot charm to add on the bracelet

Then, during my bachelorette weekend we had a very memorable experience at a sushi bar, so the girls are getting these sushi charms next

Im not sure yet what charm I am going to get for the actual wedding day. Im thinking of waiting until after the day so that I can pick something that represents a part of the day that was special, but that only the girls would understand!
