According to Brides magazine,
the cost of being a bridesmaid in 2012 can really add up! Your selected
girls often spend over $1000 in order to purchase a dress and shoes,
have proper alterations, have professional hair styling and makeup
application application, contribute toward showers and bachelorette
parties, and buy gifts.
is important for a bride to keep in mind that bridesmaids absolutely
deserve many thanks! But, of course, not all brides can afford pricey
thank you gifts for the girls.
gift idea that I absolutely love actually serves two purposes.
Monogrammed vases will provide your cherished maids a convenient place
to put their beautiful bouquets during the wedding reception (thus
enhancing your wedding reception decor), and they serve as lovely gifts.
brides place the vases around the wedding cake for a dramatic floral
display, while others simply place them at the gift table or on the head
table. In any location, this idea allows brides to get just a bit more
mileage out of the flowers, while the bridesmaids receive a gift that
they can actually use!
giving your girls monogrammed vases does not seem like quite enough,
you could, of course, add other gifts. I love the idea of just giving
the vases, waiting a week or two, then sending the girls thank-you
flowers to display in the vases! They will feel appreciated and
surprised at this thoughtful gesture.
