Instead of giving my maids gifts that they might not like, I want to contribute to their dresses. I created a pinterest board with dozens of options in varying price ranges, so each maid can pick a dress that fits her personality, style and budget. The thought is that I would be gifting them dresses that they will wear again.
Also, what is an appropriate amount of money to spend on bridesmaids gifts? This will come out of my pocket, not the wedding budget.
