Hey ladies question. My FH and I are getting married in September next year, and I'm trying to decide do I make my girls matching Disney tanks, purchase custom robes, or get flannel shirts, that we will wear before getting ready. Now this year on our date it was 90 degrees out so flannels might be too hot, and looking up how much it will cost to get them gets expensive. What do you think I should do?
I think you should get your bridesmaids gifts that relate to their interests and hobbies, nothing that has to do with your wedding. Are your friends going to wear a robe with "bridesmaid" written across the back after your wedding? Likely not. A gift card to their favorite nail salon or Starbucks would probably be a better use of your money.
We gave individualized gifts to our bridal party based on their interest, not generalized ones based around the wedding. I think that getting ready outfits can be cute but shouldn’t really be considered “gifts” since they’re for your getting ready photos, and as Caytlyn said, are they really going to use them again?
I love the idea of the robes and the disney tank top. I have just one maid of honor and I got 2 her candles. LOL We both have an obsession with Bath and body works candles and at one point worked seasonal at the same store together! One candle is her favorite scent from bath and body works and the other is from a shop called wishes candle co. They make Disney scented candles and majority have a special Disney pin in them! We used to have annual passes to Disney and would go together all the time. Our favorite ride was soaring so I got her a candle from them that smells like Fiji from the ride soaring with a hidden disney pin in it.
Guaranteed the disney tanks or robes will end up in the goodwill pile - and if they're mainly for your pictures, then it's not really a gift anyway. Shop for them, like it's your birthday - just something to think about.
