i honestly keep waffling on this.

so far i have gotten them personalized tote bags from theknotshop (discount!)

and i bought these cute pearl bracelets for them (but they dont match their dresses so um not sure if i will still give them. i might just sell them to someone else)

was gonna do the cute clutch or jewelry roll (etsy has gorgeous ones) but still not sure.

now i am debating whether to just stick with the tote bags, throw in some flip flops and a pashmina and pay for their hair or something. *sigh*

how much is enough though? im doing a semi destination wedding and i want to show them that i apprieciate them but we are starting to run low on budget.

Here’s what I’ve got for mine so far:

Travel jewelry roll from Etsy (CraftyStiches).

Necklace from Swarovski.

And I’m going to take them for manicures/pedicures a couple days before the wedding.

I also might get them some Philosphy 3-in-1 shampoo/body-wash/bubblebath. I figure that would be perfect for a quick rinse-off after the beach, since we’ll be in Florida for the wedding.

So all my girls have this so far:

  • a clutch from Tamrasbag on Etsy
  • mani/pedi the day before the wedding
  • personalized hangar from Lilafrances on Etsy
  • Kiehl’s lip balm and moisturizer
  • Bridal party emergency kit: nail file, Tylenol (more for the morning after!), pretty smelling hand sanitizer, and I have to pick up some blotting papers

I’m thinking about getting them all necklaces from a vendor on Etsy, but my sister/MOH is allergic to anything that isn’t gold, so that doesn’t make it easy! I’m also debating getting them all SoleMates for their heels on the grass. I feel like it’s not enough. What do you guys think?!

I’m also contributing to their hair/make up costs, but it’s a secret because I felt bad asking them to spend so much.

I got my girls a personalized robe and soft beach cooler.  I also got them a bezel set amethyst necklace.

We are also going for a mani/pedi the day before the wedding and I have someone coming in to do all their makeup.

My bridesmaids are getting a Lauren Merkin clutch, and I think I”m adding in a nice lip gloss and maybe a nice nailpolish. I also wanted to get them personalized robes for us all to wear the morning of, but I don’t know if I want to spend that much. And my Maid/Matron of Honor is getting a gift certificate to a spa, most likely .

i got them earrings and a copy of “where the sidewalk ends” (we used a poem from it for our STD and i think its a book everyone should have!)

i feel like i should get them something else, but i also feel like there isn’t anything they woud actually use. my sister-in-law talked me out of clutches cause its not like they’re going to carry a clutch down the aisle with them. we also paid for their dresses, so i know $$ wise, we definitely have done enough but i guess i feel like i should do something more personal.

I am buying my girls clutches witha different custom fabric for each girl. I love that the shop Blue Orchid Hangbags is local and the artist is a Northeast Ohio girl! She is also giving me a great discount! I am still trying to decide if I am going to buy some earrings as well or what 🙂

So far I got them personalized totes from theknotshop, pearl necklaces & bracelets to match their dresses and flip flops.  I’m not sure what else to put in the totes or if this is enough already?

I feel like I didn’t get them enough! You guys got great gifts! I got all my girls a friendship frame with a cute quote and put a photo of all of us in it, necklace & earrings for their dress and a broach that we are going to use to clip their shawl together like  balero for the church.

I wish I could do more for them but I really do not have much more to contribute, do you think it is enough or should I try to throw in something else???

I’m clearly slacking because I haven’t gotten to this yet… and frankly, i’m not sure what to do. I think necklaces would be great, but two of the bridesmaids have covered necks- so perhaps a bracelet in place? I’m going to go scope this out now! lol
