I was going to do both but now I’m giving all their gifts I’ve bought at the Bach , so that I don’t have extra stuff I need to bring for the day of the wedding. Only because we will be traveling 10 hours to our venue with a toddler we’re going to have lots of stuff lol
But Side note also been hearing some brides say don’t give your bridesmaids gifts that you want them to wear on your wedding months in advance incase they ruin it or lose it! I thought that was kinda smart 🤷🏼♀️
My bestie has EXPLECITLY told me not to buy anything for the bachelorette. I didn't really plan on buying anything, maybe making us a shirt, since I have a cricut, but going to wait and she want she suggests. If I were to gift, it would just be something that could be used that day/night/weekend.
When I was MOH, I made gifts for everyone involved in the bachelorette and bride only paid for some drinks on her night out haha. But was just a simple "bachelorette" gift with a cup for everyone to use, some hangover cure stuff (advil, water, tums, vitamin c tabs) and some "fun" stuff like "johnson" straws and whistles haha
My FH and I aren't having bachelor/bachelorette parties but if we did I wouldn't be giving gifts to my bride squad. We are having our kids as our wedding party and are already covering the dresses, hair, makeup etc
I just did t-shirts and tumblers because I wanted to and it was not just my wedding party. I don't think it's necessary. I've only been gifted things by the bride themselves at a bachelorette maybe twice and I can't count on two hands how many I've been to.
