I’m doing a pearl set for each girl. (Since it was at the same place we got our wedding bands and my engagement ring, they gave us a discount). It comes with a bracelet, earrings and necklace. Something classy that they can wear for the wedding and beyond. 

For the boys we did pocket watches, weirdly enough, off of Amazon. They had a great deal (40-70% off when we had ordered them)!! But they are legitimate and really nice.

futuremrswattsx:  I was a bride on a budget, but I made it work! I had 6 girls and we kept it under about 45 per girl by me bargain shopping!

Our girls received:

(For the wedding)

Matching Robes ($17 on Etsy)

Matching Bracelets to wear on the day of the wedding ($8)

(NWR)

Vera Bradley wristlets in their favorite pattern or one I thought represented them ($12 – SUPER clearance on VeraBradley.Com)

All Natural and Hand Made (not by me) soaps and lotion bars in their favorite scent or a scent that reminded me of them ($5)

Super cute canvas totes ($1 Clearance at Old Navy)

 

And I got PJ’s and a Alex and Ani bracelet for my Maid and Matron of Honor. They did SO much planning the shower and bachelorette party that I wanted to do something special for them!

BridetoBee2017:  Sure! I prefaced it joking about my 90s Xanga page quiz, and everyone laughed. I was so useful to find out that some friends can’t wear certain jewelry anymore, or now hate the color that used to be their favorite, etc.

We’re still trying to finish the guys’ gifts.  Right now we have engraved flasks and portable chargers for them.  The girls were way easier and I have to stop myself from adding more.  I got a tote with their first initial embroidered, a compact mirror with names engraved, a unique piece of Kate Spade jewelry, and a bunch of little odds and ends like little boxes of Ghirardelli and flip flops from the Old Navy $1 sale.  Then the deal on the chargers was so good I ordered one of each for my girls too.

Shopping for the girls has been fun! I have four bridesmaids to buy for.  I bought them rose gold Haviannas, bottles of Veuve champagne,  and next up is finding a fancy pants lipstick or makeup set at Sephora.  I told them to wear any black dress that they felt great in, and to choose their own shoes and jewelry.  Needless to say they are all really excited, and it was one less detail for me to think about.  I think getting matching robes is really cute, but I feel weird asking their sizes.  I also bought the flower girl dress for my FI’s sister since she is doing a lot of the bridal shower planning. 

I’m leaving the buying for the boys up to my Fiance.  He has seven to buy for… his dad and six brothers! Part of the present will be socks because it makes it easier for their wives on the day of the wedding haha
