For my bridal party, I bought so far is bridesmaids key chains whith their initials and cute pillow cases with their initials. I found the robes to be alil expensive. So I was thinking to go to marshalls and pick up some candles and anything I can find. I think four gifts for each is enough. What did yall get for your bridal party? And did you get gives for the flower girl and ring barrier? I got the flower girls bracelet with a thank you note and a cute tshirt for the ring barrier
I haven't bought gifts yet, but I would definitely get them something that isn't wedding related for their gifts. Something they can use after the fact that doesn't say bridesmaid, flower girl, ring bearer etc. One item could definitely be related to their role in the wedding, but if everything is then they aren't really getting anything out of the gifts you're giving.
Starbucks gift cards are always appreciated (I personally would love that over a $10 candle).
I got my bridesmaids a cup in their favorite color with their name laser engraved, a make up bag with their name on it in wine with a gold heart (my wedding colors), deep cleansing face mask, EOS chapstick, and hair ties that on the card says "to have and to hold, your hair back" also in my wedding colors. As for my flower girl she got the same as my bridesmaids except instead of a face mask I got her an eye mask for at night with her name on it, I did Elsa chapstick instead of EOS, and I did nail polish instead of a make up bag. For my ring barrer I got him a cup in his favorite color filled with his favorite candy and it says "ring security" inside a badge and on the other side it says "Officer Hunter" and I also got him a pair of sunglasses.
So far I have gotten my bridesmaids a makeup bag with their name on it the bag is blue, then for them to wear during the wedding I got them each a necklace but they are all different and suit each of their personalities, a wine glass and a robe. I'm probably going to get them each a candle as well. For my flower girls I bought water bottles with their names on them, I also bought some kid jewelry for them from Claire's and will be buying them their dresses. My ring bearer so far has a water bottle like the flower girls. I know I need to get him something else too but having a hard time deciding what else to get him since he is a bit older than a normal ring bearer.
I ended up getting tumblers with their names on them! They are super cute and I actually got them from amazon! I ordered 3 of them for $24 plus shipping so all together about $36! I do plan to get my flower girl and ring bearer something

Ohhhh Yea that's a good idea gift card, especially to get what they want versus me tryna wreak my pretty brain about it. Mmmmm 🤔thank you for tht that's what I'm gonna do gift cards to add to what I have already.
I went overboard on gifts honestly. Each girl is getting a bag with slippers, a candle, a face mask, personalized post-its, a nice pen, a wine glass tumbler, some hair ties, their jewelry for the day-of as well as a jewelry dish, and their fur wraps that I made them to go with their dresses. I'm also doing pajamas and maybe robes. I had to finally stop myself from buying more things for them!
I found everything on sale though and had coupons so that helped a lot.
Future mother in law is getting a bracelet from me that I found on Amazon that is engraved inside with, "I promise to love your your son with my whole heart for my whole life". And for FFIL it is a tie clip that says "thank you for raising the man of my dreams."
For our ring bearer (we're calling him the Ring Bear 🐻) our rings will be tied to a teddy bear which will be easy for him to hold onto, so he gets to keep the bear as his gift. He's 2.
We don't have a flower girl but we have a Bubble Boy who is 5 and we found the cutest bubble blower that is like Iron Man's arm and it shoots out bubbles - he will have a lot of fun with it and he'll also get to keep it.

Thank you! I wanted something they could use after the wedding, but still have it wedding related, and that's why I went with my colors for the make up bags and hair ties
I got mine a jewelry set and a B&BW candle. Honestly I refused to get them anything else after the way my bachelorette party went down. I thought it was an even exchange.. When I asked them to be a bridesmaid I got them a little basket, a stemless flute with their name on it, mini champagne, and a little glass candle holder that I put macarons in.

And that's how I feel, through out this whole process I'm checking on them versus them checking on me. I got two gifts already plus paying for they face to get beat. I asked one of my bridesmaids to do some paper flowers because she does them so well , this chic asked me to get the paper like I don't have enough going on. Geesh if i would of known i wouldn't of had any bridal party. They haven't helped and I'm shoving out gifts like it's Christmas naaawwww they lucky they getting what they getting.
