i’m planning on getting mine floral getting-ready robes (like the ones above), customized clutches (embroidered inside with “Thanks for being a part of my big day, 10/12/2013, Love, ____), and earrings. ALL etsy!

I’ve stood in two weddings:

Wedding 1:  We all got engraved Christmas ornaments (the bride LOVES Christmas) and gift certificates for a day in the hotpool area at a local spa.  The bride and maids arranged to go a few weeks after the wedding and it was an awesome day to unwind.

Wedding 2:  The bride had beautiful grey shawls made for us to wear over our dresses at her outdoor wedding.

I’m allergic to almost all jewelry and my lovely friends were thoughtful enough not to give jewelry as I probably wouldn’t be able to wear it.

I’m getting my girls a satin Victorias Secret robe in their favorite color. I figured it would come in handy while getting ready πŸ™‚

I’m also making them champagne glasses with their first initial in glitter and providing a mini bottle of champagne to go with them.

I got my girls waffle cotton robes (I guess that’s what you call the material? I will post a pic of it) for $5 each. I want their names monogrammed on them. I guess I will have to find someone locally to do it. I also got them hangers with their names personalized on them ($4 each + $4 each for S&H). I plan to add a coral bow to the hanger. I also got them lunch totes (giraffe print and pink lettering for their names) for $7.99 each + $6 each to add their names to them. I wanted to make their lunch for them the morning of the wedding. They will be spending the night with me at my parents’ house. I need to purchase their jewelry for them to wear for the wedding. I plan on letting them pick out their own accessories and me pay for it. I also was THINKING about paying for their makeup but my budget for the wedding is so tight since it’s so close! I still have the caterer and flowers to pay for!!!

 

For the Maid/Matron of Honor, she gets an extra gift. I plan on getting her a gift certificate for her to get a facial. I am also purchasing this for my mom and Step-mom in law, who I am very close with.

 

This is the material for the robes:

@SweetMelissa429:  $5 for the robes, $4 for the personalized hangers. I believe the website was cottonage.com. Another Bee had posted about it almost a year ago and I got them right there and then!

@SweetMelissa429:  I see they have went back up since then! They are $11.99 now! πŸ™ And you don’t have time to wait around on them to go back down. How many BMs do you have? I have 3 extra I believe since 3 girls have dropped out since I purchased the robes

@SweetMelissa429:  If you have a swapmeet near you, there’s usually someone who does embroidery cheap there. Our indoor swapmeet is our go-to place for church stuff. This guy does full color logo embroidered on whatever you want for $5 a pop!

Got them robes, although mine aren’t “getting ready” robes lol, they’re Nordstrom’s plush robes. These are for their own personal use at home during the winter. I have one, and its been simply an amazing investment. I’m also getting them necklaces and clutches but those are for the wedding day.

(giving them gift receipts in case they don’t like it)
