As a single chick, I’ve been in multiple weddings as everything from the flower girl to the personal attendant to the maid of honor… The gifts that I have most enjoyed have been gifts that were thoughtful.  In one wedding, I got a sterling necklace and earring set, and in another a simple yet beautiful little china vase.  I probably use the china vase most often, because it’s just something I enjoy, and I know that the bride had me in mind when she bought it.  Your gifts sound fabulous…

Our wedding is in February in Colorado, so I’m getting the girls Uggs. We’ll also secretely help out with the hotel bills, so I think that will be most appreciated. I can tell you one thing I didn’t really like all that much— jewelry for the wedding day that I would never wear again. I guess if you want your bridesmaids to look alike, that’s an option though! Good luck!

I bought my girls pink Coach wristlets to match the pink bridesmaids dresses I made them wear so they could carry around their wedding day necessities with them. I also paid for their hair and makeup.

I tried really hard to find things that they’d use over and over again. I got them:

* I bought their shoes for the wedding
* I’m making rhinestone tanktops that say "Bridesmaid"

i’m giving my girls customized bags from 1154lill.com.  I picked the Mary purse which is reversible so one side will be all chocolate brown satin to match their dresses and the other side is a fabric that i asked them to choose. 

As far as best gifts i’ve received, i would prob say personalized stationary bc i love that sort of thing and chandlier earrings..

The best wedding party gift I received was a clutch (each of us received a different one by the same designer).  I’m giving my bridesmaids Victoria’s Secret satin robes to wear the morning of, while we’re getting ready.  I think it’ll make for a great picture too!

I am debating this, so seeing answers from years ago is actually helpful!

Right now, I’m leaning toward buying each a small purse (probably a wristlet from Coach), and putting some small trinkets in it. I want to buy them earrings and a necklace to wear for the wedding, but they would be something that they can also wear whenever.

I’m hoping to get my stuff finalized by the end of August.

rosychicklet:  I’m curious what you think the difference between a “real” pashmina and a “cheapo shawl” is?  Pasmina is just a name for a wool shawl.  Do you mean real cashmere?

This isn’t one that I’ve received, but my brother did something really cool for his groomsmen. He had customized “wrestling buddies” made for each of them (big wrestling fan).  A similar thing is budsies.com where they make custom stuffed animals out of drawings or photos. So you can just upload photos of your Bridesmaids and get plush dolls that look like them (even wearing a dress that looks similar to their bridesmaid dress!) So cute and personal.

I used Plum Pretty Sugar robes back when I got married. They were perfect. I was recently in my girlfriends wedding and she also used Plum Pretty Sugar as a surpirse gift for us! She got us adorable rompers. So much fun!

I’m paying for my bridesmaids makeup.  I also got them floral silk robes to wear while getting ready and personalized hangers.
