I’m still working on getting each girl something specific to their interests.. but each one is getting custom made earrings, necklace and bracelet [made by my aunt] a picture fram with an IOU inside for a wedding print of their choice once we receive them and a custom wizard of oz tote bag [that goes with our theme.. Fiance drew them, I’m painting] … rmy Maid/Matron of Honor is also getting two canvas art works I made myself with stickers .. painted over the stickers and peeled them off 🙂 I used Spice Girl “Wannabe” lyrics because its always been “our” song 🙂

where did you find the garter flasks? I saw them once when I was in the Haight in SF but haven’t seen them since!

I just got the same t-shirts for my girls in black and pink (which are my wedding colors) from Vistaprint. And I got one for myself that has Bride & instead of 2012, it has the full date of our wedding. The only thing I’m confused about is that I want all the girls to wear them together, but I dont know when that will be (some are out of state) and I know the day of the wedding would be a bad idea because of everyone getting their hair done. and I was planning on dressing up for the rehersal, so that may not be a good idea either… Do you have any ideas?

I have no clue what I’m getting them. But I plan on picking a specfic things out for each bridesmaids! I am trying to stay away from gifts that would technially be for my wedding, like shoes, matching jewlary, things like that.
Some ideas I have,
1.Buying my friend a whole day at the Spa to enjoy herself!
2. Going to the outlets and getting my Best Friend a Cole Hann purse she loves.
3. Geting my cousin jewlary from Tiffanys she loves them.
4.Getting my Brother a new snowboard if he doesn’t replace it by my wedding.
5. My cousin who is a bridesmaid is getting married 11 months before me, I was thinking of offering her babysitting services for her first year of marraige as her “gift” but I might offer it and think of something else since our weddings are nearly a year apart.

Since I am in the beginning stages of my planning I am sending my girls a packet that includes information about the dress and shoes and in it I will include the movie “Bridesmaid”. I will be purchasing their earrings and bracelets for the wedding and I am gifting each girl with a personalized hanger for their dress. My matron and my two maids will also be getting a personalized compact mirror from Things Remebered.

I think I am going to do nail polish, necklace and bracelette, and personalized wine glass’ as I know every one of my girls would LOVE that. Also I will be makeing each of them an emergency bridesmaid kit in a cute clutch of some sort.
