Wedding Wednesday - Bridesmaid and Hostess Gifts

I mentioned in this post that I was giving my Bridesmaids their gifts at our couples shower this past weekend. We won't all be together again until we all arrive in Mexico and with all the other decorations and stuff I have to fit in m suitcase, bringing 3 extra bags of goodies just wasn't going to work! 

I am really pleased with everything I got for the gifts! I even ordered one of everything for myself too ;) 

So, here's the run down... 

Monogrammed Turquoise Seersucker Bag

I thought I would also share some the gift bags I put together for both of our moms for hosting our shower. Our moms have very different tastes so I had to do something different for them.

I was really pleased with how everything turned out!

 I can't wait for all of us to use our new bags, beach towels, and tumblers at the resort in December!

The shirts were so/so. I'm glad I did that instead of spending a lot of money getting them made because I know they'll never wear them again. I bought cheap shirts from Target, made the design in Microsoft Word, flipped it, printed it on an iron transfer, then ironed them on. They're not perfect and will probably only last through one washing, but that's ok. They'll be good for us to wear around the resort the day of the wedding and getting our hair done in the spa.

I think my favorite thing are the tumblers! If you've ever been to an All-Inclusive Resort, you know they give you drinks in dinky plastic cups that last about 2 sips then you're done. These are going to be perfect for all of us to fill up with a pina colada and everyone will know we're the bridal party :) And I think these will get used after the wedding too!

I think they were all happy with what they got!

What did you get your bridal party?
