When did everyone start buying their bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts? I already know what I want but keep waiting...

    I actually started buying bridesmaid gifts last year, although you may run into a potential issue of people dropping out. My advice is to buy a little at a time, if possible. Since you have a few months until your big day, I would start looking for gifts now. Shop as if it's their birthday. Something special for each of them.

    I already bought some things that I knew were for sure. I’m saving a few things for when it gets closer for one girl who may drop and my dads watch...don’t want the battery to die in the next six months. Also a few things that’ll be delivered to my mohs house, don’t want her to have to store this stuff forever.

    I started buying things slowly over the past few months - keeping an eye out on sales. I’m now done with the bridesmaids and onto the groomsmen. My goal is to have it done a couple months before the wedding so I don’t have to worry about it.

    I was done with my bridesmaids gifts in September 2018 for my June 2019 wedding lol. I knew what I wanted to get them, so I just got it out of the way. Being 1 month away from the wedding now it is soo nice to have that off my plate! Meanwhile my FH procrastinated and now he is finding gifts online that he wants to get his friends and it's saying they won't arrive until the week after the wedding, so he has to keep looking and it's super annoying -.-

    I'm 11 months out, and I bought the stuff, I just have to make it. I might buy them earrings too, but we'll see.

    I plan on laser engraving the Yeti-style wine glasses and embroidering bags with their first initial on them.

    I purchased things in advance. I took advantage of bath and body works and Victoria's secrets semi annual sales.

    I bought them necklaces and bracelets about 3 months ago even though the wedding is not until 10/3/20. I just figured while I had a little extra money I might as well get their gifts.

    Since I’m only having a MOH (my sister) I’m getting her a tote bag with her name, paying for makeup & hair the day of and then gifting her a Tiffany bracelet at the rehearsal or morning of.

    I definitely suggest buying a little at a time that way you don’t spend so much $ at once
