@rubianbeauty11:  Wow, that’s rude! Surprised  I wouldn’t know what to say to that!  But stick to your budget, just because she spent a lot doesn’t mean you can afford the same budget.  Heh, and I’d tell her where to stick it! lol

make your gift real sentimental. no one can argue with that and its basically free. write them an essay and put it in a card

Honestly,  I have been the Maid/Matron of Honor and two weddings now and only remember what I received as a hostess gift at one of them and it took me honestly 10 minutes to remember.  I do however remember what I was given by the bride as bridesmaids/MOH gifts.  In my opinion, that is really more important.

That being said, if you would feel better adding something a little extra than go for it.  I would say go for something a little more heartfelt than $$$.  When in doubt…cousult Pinterest??

@goingtotherooftopoflove:  Oh believe me…I’d LOVE to tell her where to go… But I think I gotta keep the peace and not condescend to her level. In late September I move out, so I’m counting the days when I don’t have to see her everyday. Every time she wants to talk about stuff or I gotta tell her something pertaining to the wedding, I cringe… >.>

I gave my shower hosts each a Willow Tree figuringe specific to my relationship with them/ their personalities (one had a dog and my aunt loooooves dogs). That felt more personal to me. I got them on amazon for a lot less than I could buy in the stores. just an ideaSmile

well in my opinion if she was aware and did it on her own will then it is not an obligation for you to return the favour at the same price considering your wedding expenses.
