One of the hardest things I have found with wedding planning is coming up with ideas for the gifts for all the VIP members of the wedding. As I figure out what I'm getting for them, I will post them here so you ladies can possibly get some ideas!
At the rehearsal dinner each of the girls will get a little jewellery box with an engraved silver bracelet. I will also be getting them something more for the day of, which is undecided yet.
For the bridesmaids I decided that I wanted to do some custom totes up for each of them, unique to each of their favourite colours. So far to put in them I have: a mug, a pen, a notepad, and a frame. I am going to purchase a package of each of their favourite warm drinks to add (hot chocolate mix, tea, cappuchino mix, coffe, etc). I made a custom hanger for each lady. I also have a jewellery box for each lady with a set of necklace & earrings that I will give to them during the rehearsal dinner (the totes they will get when we're in our room getting ready) and a shirt that says Bridesmaid for the day of.
I also decided to make a bouquet charm for each of the girls. These included 2 charms each, one that had their first name on it and one that represented them, or something important about how we met/got to know each other. These can all be placed on a chain and wore after the wedding!
