It might be early for me to be worrying so much about this but.. I've been doing a lot of looking around online for bridesmaid gifts and I'm having some trouble figuring out what to do! First let me just describe my bridal party:
MOH: tall, masculine lesbian, wearing a suit in the wedding. does not do girly. cannot buy her a cute clutch or feminine jewelry or anything like that.
Attendant#2: oldest sister, kind of a hippy/tomboy, straight but not into much of anything girly. outdoorsy, all about being eco-conscious (she takes her own mason jar to coffee shops ok. not even one of those normal reusable plastic or metal to-go mugs. a glass mason jar with a screw-top lid. ok.).
Attendant#3: other older sister, totally opposite in terms of personality from oldest sister. Girly type things ok for her, but nothing Too girly.
Attendant #4: old college roommate. completely different from any of the above, this girl is the definition of feminine class. Never leaves the house undone up. A place for everything and everything in its place kind of a girl. Could totally do the traditional bridesmaid gifts for her, or I could do a more personalized thing.
Sooo HALP. Clearly the Sugared Lemon Clutch (pictured
above) from eclu
would not work as a gift for all of them, as much as I love it. So I've been trying to find a way to get Something that's basically the same to give to all of them (like a bag
or a neato In Touch Clutch
), and then maybe something else that's personal. But I don't have a huuuge budget for this.
I could of course just find a necklace that would suit the three more feminine bridesmaids (like THIS
? LOVE), and then some kind of nice accessory for my MOH (personalized belt
? pricey but awesomely androgynous ring
?). I just want to do more
than that. But I can't be spending $100 on each girl so I've got to narrow down my ideas.
What are you all thinking about doing for your attendants/bridesmaids/whatever-you're-calling-them?
