I am going to a local place in town that has all kinds of cute girly bath stuff. Candles, bath soaps, cute little dishes for jewelry. Anyone who is involved in the wedding should get a gift and any friend who is helping you but you arn’t paying them. Like, a friend of ours is doing of photography for free so I will be giving her a really nice gift. The readers and the lady who is singing for us will get a cute candle and some bath stuff. Probably $30 worth.

Maid/Matron of Honor got something special, but did get something for all both Bridesmaid or Best Man. Gave $40 to our 3 singers and violin player. Everyone else (ushers, people who are handing out programs, guestbook, flower attendant, etc) we have personalized bags of popcorn that we are giving them.

We’re “gifting” everyone who plays some part in our wedding. For us that’s the bridesmaids, groomsmen, Maid/Matron of Honor, Best Man, 2 Readers, Attendant, Parents.  Since we’re inviting them all to the rehearsal & dinner to follow, I don’t want to not give gifts to someone who is graciously helping us….although the readers gifts will be smaller than the others.

We are giving gifts to anyone who’s helped with the wedding and not a vendor: parents, all memebers of the bridal party, and our readers.  For readers, we are doing small gifts – something around $10-$15.
