Mine wasn't for being a bridesmaid, it was for singing at my friend's wedding. She got me a flask, engraved with my name on it. Doesn't sound special, but it meant a lot to me.
I've been in three weddings, each time I got jewelry to wear for the wedding. Only once was it something I would ever consider wearing again. Posted by caraellen23
In Response to Re: Whats the best gift you've received for being a bridesmaid? : My mom and I got in a big fight over getting day of jewelry. I said it wasn't a gift for them if I wanted them to wear it for MY wedding, it was just self serving. Plus I don't care if they wear cheap matching necklaces I would rather they wear stuff they like. My mom said it was tradition yadda, yadda. I might get something for my sister's dress, but it will not be her gift. Posted by NCV2
