I paid for their hair and makeup on the day of the wedding and got them all shawls for them to wear after the ceremony:

I bought their dresses (the convertible dress by Dessy) and am paying for their hair and make-up the day of.  I hope that’s enough cuz I can’t do more.

I’m paying for their hair, and also covering their lodging so they don’t have to pay for a hotel (destination wedding of sorts). Also going to do robes for them for when we get ready, and personal thank you notes for each.

I’m doing personal gifts for them as well. Art for one who just moved into a new house, jewelry for one who loves it, and I’m not set yet on the 3rd one.

@MrsDrRose612:  wow… that is a lot! Also as a side note, most bridesmaids who have to attend two showers only give a gift at one of them. There are more there for moral support/assistance at both showers. So, i wouldnt feel obligated to go overboard because you think they will be spending a lot on two shower gifts

 

I am getting my girls their accessories for the wedding (jewelery, clutch, and flip flops for dancing) and i am treating all of them to a spa day before the wedding.

@MrsDrRose612:  Ahhh i see… yeah does take a lot to plan and host a shower. I thought maybe they were just attending showers hosted by other family members. I hear you on loving to give gifts. I have a tendency to go overboard at christmas and birthdays because i love the look when someone opens something they really love 🙂 I would probably loose the bangles, necklace, nail polish and candle if you are trying to lower costs. Everything else sounds amazing though! Earings can go with any neckline and you are right about the scarf being something they can use for a long time….

So far I have different earrings/necklace sets that (I believe?) suit each of their taste to wear at the wedding. I was looking to add to this and will be stalking this thread…

i went with my theme (beach wedding in Jamaica) and got them cute sarongs in their favorite color. Most of them used them alot that week of the wedding lounging on the beach, so i was happy to see the gift in use. And i also got them jewelry sets to wear in  the wedding (so i guess that was a semi-gift, semi-decor for my wedding that they got to keep!)
