All of my bridesmaids live out of state, and one out of the country, so I just sent them cards to ask them. 

On the wedding day I gave them First Snow Mittens and Hearthside Joggers from Anthropologie.

Matching pearl earrings and a pearl necklace.  Also, embroidered tote bags with their names on them that they could use to store their things in the day of the wedding.

To ask them, I put together little boxes that had nail polish, mini candles, candies, and scented hand sanitzers.

For the bachelorette, I will be giving them shirts that say “bridesmaid,” “maid of honor…” and little shotglasses that have lip prints on them.

For the rehearsal dinner, I will give them a thank you gift which I am not final on yet, but I want to do a personalized tumbler, a nice sized bag to use for their stuff on wedding day, alex and ani bracelet, and the jewelry I want them to wear.

I only had 3 bridesmaids , so I kinda spoiled them.

We paid for their hair/makeup. Then I bought each one tote bags (just cute ones I found at a local store) and filled with some fun things like – an necklace, an infinity scarf, a wine glass with a personalized charm to use at the reception and their fav candies.

I have 4 and I went a little crazy haha. I gave them hangers with bridesmaid written in wire so they can hang their dress on it, a robe for getting ready, a tote bag, a card, and a message in a bottle with a poem asking them to be a bridesmaid. I was sure everyone I was asking would say yes so that’s why I did all of that. I plan to get them really personal gifts to give them at the rehearsal since all of these were wedding related. We are also paying for hair and make up for them on the day.  Since you have so much time I would wait, I know it’s really fun and exciting, but you have so much time until your wedding you want to be sure that these girls will still be close with you by then.

Homemade mug personalized with their names, fancy bath gel, vintage earrings picked out for each girl to wear to vintage themed wedding, little make up bag monogrammed with their intial, face mask called “what the hell happened last night?”, thoughtful card. About $30 per girl but I think it came out feeling like more  🙂 Also gave one to my officiant and my friend who was like an unofficial Bridesmaid or Best Man she did so much for me. My male Bridesmaid or Best Man got a gift card to his favorite burger place and a huge box of watermelon jolly ranchers, his fav.

Don’t do a confetti balloon. No one wants to clean that stuff up.

get them personal presents that don’t have anything to do with your wedding. Wedding party jewelry and Bridesmaid shirts are about you, not about them. I’m giving one girl a pair of Red Sox tickets, concert tickets for another, and the third I found this cool map of her neighborhood and I’m having it framed (cause she is really passionate about her neighborhood).

Horseradish:  I’m paying for their hair and then doing individualized gifts. All my BM’s are completely different and I don’t think that giving them things they HAVE TO or can only use on your day is a gift.. 🙁

I wouldn’t like it if I were a bridesmaid.. Especially if it’s something I’ll likely never use again, i.e. something that SAYS “bridesmaid” on it or something with the person’s names and wedding date.

Horseradish:  I meant to basically second your idea by replying! I didn’t make that obvious lol

Don’t do a confetti balloon unless you’re going to clean it up.

For my “Will you be my MOH/BM gifts” I made these (see pic).

It consisted of the following

– Mason jar mug

– Inside the mug are the following: strawberry soap, chocolates, ring pop, flowers and a hand written note folded into a heart

– I also purchased small pictures frames for each of them with a picture of my GFs and I.

 

As for the day of gifts, well I have not decided whether to go for many small gifts or one big one. The shopping around must continue… 🙂
