Excited to share with you my completed bridesmaids gifts... so if you are in fact one of my bridesmaids, please step away from the computer and do something fun. But seriously do not read this.
Are they gone? Awesome! Here are there wonderful gifts, I wanted to share with you my strategy because as we all know gifts can get expensive. Almost every gift in this bag I got 50% off or greater, except one.
Of course every lady needs some pearls, so I got them each pearl earrings ($20 going out of business sale) and a matching handmade bracelet. I actually won the bracelets on Indie Bride, so like I always say- enter those giveaways! They were made with freshwater pearls and garnet beads by Ocean Pearl.
Since the wedding reception is on cobblestone I decided to also get them something very practical. Sole Mates, which are only $10 a pair! I did pay full price but seriously these things are amazing- lovely clear pieces that slip onto your heel to make walking on uneven ground or grass much easier, forget about it! I adore these and I'm sure my ladies will appreciate it!
Who wouldn't want something to frame their memories in, so I bought them each a lovely mother of pearl frame! I bought them at the same going out of business sale where I got the earrings for just $15 (over 50% off).
I'm also throwing in two Dolce Salon and Spa Quarter Hunnies (similar to a giftcard) into their bag for hosting my bridal shower. What's best about this is I got each at half price during a sale! So although I'm giving them $50 I only spent $25 which is fabulous when you're on a budget.
Keep in mind I only have two bridesmaids for our intimate wedding. All in all I spent roughly $70 on each of their gifts, including the Dolce Hunies which I intend to give them as a bridal shower thank you. I did this over the course of an entire year to get the best deals. What do you think? Did I round up some fun gifts or give you any ideas? What are you getting your bridesmaids?
