    Gifts in bio.  Ditto PP, the gift shouldn't have anything to do with your wedding.
    This is a neglected planning bio.
    This is a belated married bio, with no reviews yet because I'm lazy.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284

    I love coach bags. So I was thinking about getting them coachs wristlets.  It is the only thing that I can think of that fit me and something they would use after the weding.

    i'm shopping like it's their bdays so they all have something different... my one friend is getting a tv show on dvd and a game, another is getting either cds or bath & body type stuff... the other 2 are getting wine with either snacks or bath & body stuff or something like that.  and they're all getting a little bracelet... they can wear it to the wedding, but they don't have to, i wanted to give them one little thing that was all the same.

    I am getting each of my girls who drink (my MOH doesn't) an Anne Taintor flask, just for fun (http://annetaintor.com/allproducts.html?sub=Flasks ) and then getting them each something unique to them.  One of the girls is getting a necklace I know she'll like, and I'm not sure what I'm getting the others yet.

    All my girls love the jewelry I make so I'm making them each a pair of earrings, a bracelet and depending on where I am after buying the beads and materials, I'll get them a little something else.

    If they didn't like the jewelry already I wouldn't be making it for them, but they do and I thought it was a nice personal touch.

    Thank you Retread! I'm super excited that I'm able to give them something that I've made specially for them.

    Posted by Kbaskett1023[/QUOTE] The bridesmaid gifts are supposed to be about what your <em>bridesmaids</em> love-- not what you love. The gifts don't need to "fit you." They should fit your bridesmaids. Your entire wedding is all about you-- the bridesmaid gifts should be about them. If you think that <em>they</em> would all love Coach wristlets, then that's a great gift. If they don't like logos/don't care about designer things, then it's not so great.
