MOH and BM gift budgets

Hi All,

I'm really stressing about the gifts for my MOHs and BMs...about how much are folks spending?

I had originally set a budget of $50 for each girl and I'm not paying for dress, hair, makeup, shoes, etc. I have also not made any requirements with regards to these items, other than the color of the dress and that they wear the same style, which I let the MOHs select.

Day spa? A mani and pedi before the wedding. I'm thinking of getting my MOH and BMs pearls so they can wear it for the wedding.

Spend as much as you can afford. If you can only afford $50, then don't spend more than that. Your MOHs and BMs will love whatever you give them!

You should not worry or stress out about how much you need to spend on your MOH and BMs. I am sure they feel honored to be asked as your bridal party and they don't really expect any extravagant gift from you. To me, the best gift is not how much you spend on the gift, but rather something meaningful... like a framed picture of just you and each individual BM, or something that will remind them of your wonderful friendship.

since we already bought our BMs dresses. We're not really going to get a gift per se. But we are going to have a mini-spa day at my house. We're hiring an on location day spa before the wedding.

i want to do coach... i'm making their gifts to save money. there's a few things i've picked up from target's dollar section.. ie spa loofa set.. ok that's the only thing. but as much as i want to buy them something extravagent i'm trying to be more personable and meaningful.. ok cheap but hey i have 7 attendants plus 2 other sisters,8 sponsors, an aunt helping me w/a performance, and i'm paying for some vendor's meals. i think i can be ok w/my 50.00 per bm budget. don't worry they'll love whatever you put thought into.

Thanks for all of the positive input...I really appreciate it! My girls are doing so much for me and I only wish I could do as much for them, but alas, my budget is limiting that!

I took sarahmkruse's lead and visited my nearest Coach outlet over the weekend. They were having a fantastic sale on their large wristlets because of the holiday. Thanks so much for the suggestion...without it I would have never made the trek and gotten such fantastic gifts. And now I have a little bit extra to spend on some extras for my girls :).

I love this board!
