    The bag would get more usage. As long as it doesn’t have names or titles. What are you putting inside. Props for the day of pictures (jewelry, robes, totes, bridesmaids proposal boxes, hair/makeup, attire, shoes etc) are not gifts for them. A thank you gift that goes a longer way has nothing to do with the wedding day but fits their individual interests and you can easily have a variety of gifts for a group that are not identical but in a similar price range.

    I’m well aware that props are not gifts lol they are being gifted coach luggage tags, Kendra Scott earrings with their birthstones, pajamas to get ready in, a personalized watercolor painting of the two of us with a handwritten thank you note on the back, champagne candy, a Starbucks cup, and a gift card for the hotel spa to use the day before.

    Those are some awesome gifts ! Your girls are going to love them. I like the bag better, it’s perfect for the beach and running errands.

    If I were receiving one of these I would prefer the bag. I love the things you are gifting your girls. All very thoughtful gifts. 😊

    I think the totes are super cute! But, if they are the types of girls that already have plenty of their own bags, then I would go with the boxes. Personally, I have enough handbags/totes that I already don't get enough use out of. Also, the boxes look super put together!

    I got my girls the totes. I personally didn’t want to spend a lot of money on things that wouldn’t be used again.

    I am going to go against the grain here and say that I like the boxes much more! I think opening items neatly packaged in these beautiful boxes will make them feel much more like a gift.

    I would personally say boxes. I have been in multiple weddings in the past few years and every single one I've received a tote. Ive used the totes each maybe once and ended up throwing them away. I'd much rather just have something meant to be thrown away from the beginning so I dont feel bad doing it two years later. You could also ask your MOH for her opinion.

    I'm normally always a fan of tote bags, but in this case, I love the boxes a bit more!

    I couldn't decide so I did both 🙈 I put their proposals in the box, but I'm gifting a tote closer to the wedding!

    I much prefer the look of the boxes! I agree with Cece that it makes it feel more like a gift than the tote would.

    I’m doing personalized tote bags for my bridesmaids and mothers, but we are doing a beach wedding so I feel like they’ll get some use.

    I love the look of the box but i would do totes just so they would probably use it more likely
