Im in a little conundrum about this. My wedding party is all relatives (my daughter, adopted niece and my fiances niece). They are all 22 and under so I took them shopping and had them pick out their own dresses that they would be comfortable in and wear again (this was important bc they are so differemt-1 is tall and thin, 1 is short and average and 1 is average height and bigger). I told them I wanted short modern dresses that they would like and wear again. Each of them was excited about their dresses and they are all fun and youthful so therefore I am thrilled.
Here is where I am a little confused- I gave them an open ended budget and paid for each dress no questions asked (one doesnt work and the other two are only part time). I also paid for all three pairs of shoes (again they are all different-I let them pick out what was comfortable-the tall girl doesnt like heels lol). I had them all pick out a bracelet they liked and paid for all three of those plus all three pairs of earrings and all three necklaces (the only part of the outfit that will be same). I also paid for bridesmaid bags that the two bridesmaids asked for and a maid of honor bathrobe (not my idea my daughter who is the MOH wanted it).
After all of that I took my MOH, both bridesmaids plus one of their friends that came along, my future sister in law( BM#1 mom) and a friend (BM#2 mom) out to dinner.
My question is this-after doing all of this should I still present them with a bridal party gift and if so what should I do? My other issue is that we didnt have to buy much for the groomsmen side-my son is the best man and he is wearing his ROTC uniform and my fiance nephew who is 12 and wearing a rented suit. We didnt do much for his side because we didnt need to but it somehow seems unfair to do so much for my side and then add gifts to mix.
