So I bought these big totes from The Knot that I now need to fill because they are so big 😉 -I made them pearl necklaces & bracelets which I’m putting in a pretty small jewelry box and then in the totes. And that’s all I have so far. I have an idea to purchase champagne splits & orange juice with a champagne glass that I decorate with my cricut vinyl or etch them – but that still leaves a lot of room. Suggestions, ladies?!

I think a photo frame with a picture of you and her is really cute!

Definitely day-of goodies – like snacks, water bottles, bobby pins, blotting wipes, double-sided tape, safety pins, etc! Glow sticks could be fun for the reception – my friends love dancing with glow sticks. haha.

Let me see in my girls totes, I have picture frames, 2 sets of jewelry one for the wedding one for them to wear whenever. Bridal survival kit, spa stuff, and thank you card which will have a gift card in the thank you card

Thanks for the ideas!
@M.Ruder: I do love those hangers and I’m sure I can do them if I take the time, we’ll see! Is that a picture of one you made or is that your inspiration? If it’s yours, it looks wonderful!!!
I like the photo frame idea, and I actually thought about the flip-flops idea + a beach towel (a beach towel would take up room and thats a plus!)…Our reception is in a hotel on the beach so it’s appropriate. I’m just trying to not spend very much, as I am hoping to keep it under $40 per bridesmaid. So I’ll have to do some cheap towel hunting! First stop: Marshalls!
Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated 🙂

I gave my BMs pashminas that I found at a local flea market that were pretty inexpensive. They took up tote space and some of the girls used them when it got cooler at night. I agree with others that some bottled water (or other favorite drink) and some snacks are good to give as well!

I went to Shutterfly and made memory books using photos of us (my Maid/Matron of Honor and I have been friends for 30 years so that was super fun). They are also getting their jewlery and a cute little handbag that’s just for fun. I’m most excited about giving them the photo books.
