wedding: bridesmaids gifts


i got glass paint and painted some dollar tree wine glasses


on one side is their name and the other has bridesmaid (or maid of honor) and the date of the wedding (i also made one for myself, but it just says bride and the date


i got initial charms from things remembered that had a little pearl attached (they dont seem to have them anymore) and strung them on a chain

i put them in little drawstring chiffon bags from the dollar tree that i put in the glasses


you can see mine here (though its backward because this is a picture of a mirror)

i got myself a k for my new last name and got all the girls their first initial

i didnt by them intending for them to be worn at the wedding though we all ended up wearing them, even me! (i wasnt sure what jewelry i was going to wear until i put the dress on that day)

but it worked out perfectly cause i told the girls if they wanted to wear any jewelry to wear some combination of pearls (i.e. earrings, necklace, bracelet)

Awesome! :)
I love the initial necklaces, and the fact that you got your 'new last name' initial!

Cute! Love the handmade bridesmaid gifts! I had 7 bridesmaids, and made them all necklaces, earrings and bought them flip flops to wear that night when their feet got sore.

Lovely dear!

Your bridesmaid’s gifts looks adorable. Really liked the creativity you have done. For my wedding at one of wedding venues, I managed to have floral crowns and pearls necklace for everyone. They all wore that for my reception and were looking gorgeous with them.
