I am wondering what an appropriate amount of money would be to spend on a bridesmaid's gift?
I paid for all of my girl's dresses ($200 each) and I am also paying for them each to have professional hair and makeup done on my wedding day (another $150 each). I would still like to give them a small gift to unwrap together on the big day, and let them know how much I appreciate all of their hardwork. Unfortunately I AM on a budget & because of how much I have already spent, I need to keep the costs down... However, I want to make sure that my gratitude is properly & adequately expressed.
Do you think a $50 gift along with a very nice, handwritten note be appropriate? I'm not sure what the ettiquette is here.
