I got all my bridesmaids the hanger with their name in the wire when I asked them to be in the wedding. I’m also getting them a Kate Spade bracelet & Kate Spade cosmetic bag. Not sure what else yet.

I got my girls each a different bracelet (bangle style) from Kate Spade.  They wrapped each one in a small, round little “hat-box” if you will; with a bow wrapped around it.  I think I like the packaging more than the gift itself.  Cannot wait to give it to them!

Oh, and my readers, singers and ushers each received gift certificates to the mall in their respective cities.  The flower girl got a cute little crafty toy thing from Toys-R-Us.  The ring bearer was picky, he wanted a digger, BUT it couldn’t be green (no John Deer.. CAT only lol).  And the MC got a gift certificate to Golf Town.

Bridesmaids: Tasteful dangle crystal earrings from Herberger’s, a silver and crystal sideways cross bracelet from an etsy seller called Modern Grace. (ModernGrace: http://www.etsy.com/shop/shopmoderngrace) and a silver clutch from Macy’s. (I also won a contest from Allure Bridals so all 5 of them got their Bridesmaid or Best Man dress free)

Groomsmen: Personalised box of golfballs, a silver and purple tie to wear on the wedding day that would match the purple Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, and a bag of locally-made jerky.

All other “helpers” such as flower girls, guest book attendants, & personal attendants got the same silver crystal cross bracelet to wear that day.

Host Couples: Bottle of wine and a 3 foot tall black swirly iron candle stand that we also used for decoration at the reception.

Dads: Personalised golfballs and ties.

Moms: Silver travel jewelry case and a metal decorative cross for the home to remember our day from Hobby Lobby.

The girls got their hair and make up paid for along with silky nighties and robes.

The guys got a ‘wilderness survival kit’ which included a pocket knife, flashlight, waterproof match kit and a flask along with a coffee mug.

I’m giving our parents wedding albums after the wedding and a nice big frame of a family portrait.  It’s more a gift to say thank you for being wonderful parents to us.  I’m also going to give our moms massage gift certificates because they’ve been such a big help, I want to pamper them alittle bit!

 

I know Future Brother-In-Law and Future Sister-In-Law gave all the parents a thoughtful card that said thank you for everything.

I know my mom said we didn’t have to give them a gift because they want to help with the wedding, I just want to anyways because I appreciate everything they do for us/me.

Darling Husband and I each had one attendant, and our priority was getting them something to use later. Although we’ve both gotten bridal party gifts in the past that were designed to be used on the day, and we appreciated them, for our situation, gifts to keep and use later made more sense.

Se we got them personalized coolers, filled with sixpacks of one of the two local beers that we were having at our wedding.

Fiance and I only have one attendant each, his best man is his father; so we splurged for slightly more expensive gifts than was recommended by the budgeting sheets I downloaded.

Maid/Matron of Honor – A Brighton purse & tote bag, a nice thank you note written in a pretty card from Papyrus

Groomsmen (FOG) – A nice pen and several cigars

MOG – a Garmin GPS

MOB – Sterling Silver picture frame

FOB – …. still working on this…

Photos are a gift to us from my parents, so although both sets of parents will get a parents album, that isn’t a gift from us

FH will be getting a Mont Blanc Classic pen… he’s been drooling over them since before we met, but won’t buy one for himself.  (And it was way more affordable than the Rolex he also admires!)
