I’m planning on paying for the bridesmaids pro makeup application day-of, satin floral robes (none of us have satin robes & they feel very luxe in our view), and getting each a $10 gift card to Dunkin Donuts. Big Donut/Coffee Lovers. Groomsmen, I’m gonna assume that Fiance will give them something digital like a $20 PSN or XBOX gift card (they’re big gamers but none are really drinkers) and either an inexpensive money clip or $10 Dunking Donuts gift cards for the guys too.

We’re budgeting about $30 each per person. Our parent gifts range from $20-30 per person, plus for my folks, I’ll be getting a embroidered handkerchief set with the whole sentimental poem which will be $30 altogether. All in all, gifts & pro makeup rounds out to $495 with 8 bridal party and 4 parents.

I’m paying for their makeup and then giving them goodie bags each with: a personal thank you note, a bracelet ($40), urban decay setting spray travel size that I got on sale, mini champagne bottle, and snacks!

I have no idea for the groomsmen.  For the bridesmaids, they got a large canvass bag with their initial on it, tea towels, a metal waterbottle, a throw blanket, bath bombs, a candle, and a yankee candle air freshener spray.  Since I shopped sales, it cost me approx $75pp

whitepeacock :  I’m a deal shopper….so just about everything was on sale. We had a 12/2 wedding, so I didn’t know what the weather would be like. I didn’t want the gifts to be something they would have to wear/use for the wedding and then never use again.

For the men: Coleman small soft sided cooler (with a hard insert…got on a sale at Kohls) filled with their favorite beer and a few shots of fireball, a beer glass (got on sale at Target) and a personalized bottle opener (got a groupon and they turned out so well!). 

For the ladies: Red pashmina shawl, necklace, bracelet and earrings….not necessarily part of the “gift” but so they would all match. Tote. Makeup bag with something of their liking (my older sister sells lipsense so I got her one with lipstick and lips on it, two girls are nurses so I got them something related to that, my friend hates flamingos but it’s been a joke with myself and her and her family forever so hers had flamingos on it lol). Bottle of wine. Set of 2 bottle stoppers. Ozark tumbler (like a yeti tumbler).
