Looking for Epic Bridesmaid Gift Bag Ideas?
Looking for some great bling for your bridesmaid gift bags? You could just head to the travel aisle at Target and get them some generic travel size moisturizers and chocolate. They’ll definitely be overwhelmed by your thoughtfulness (cough, cough…sarcasm). Or, you could get them some fabulous bling that they will actually love and use.
Go for the rock-star bride bonus points and gift something that will actually help cut down the cost of being a bridesmaid?
What is a Rock-Star Bride? It’s a woman who remembers the day is about her and her relationships and not about planning an epic overwhelming event. At least that’s how we describe it here.
So, how do you get Rock-Star points with your bridesmaids? Well, for one, don’t pick a dress that makes them want to vomit at the thought of wearing it. Second, gift them useful things that say I’m so glad you’re going to be standing with me. Then, plan a Freaking Awesome Bridesmaid Party and you’ll have achieved Rock-Star bride status for sure!

If you haven’t tried these leggings yet, you need to get on board already! They are freaking amazing! (I am wearing a pair right now while typing this…hopefully I’ve taken them off by the time you read this, no gurantees.) At less than $25/pair they won’t break your budget and you’ll be gifting something that your bridesmaids will actually wear again and again and again. Did I mention that I love them?
Meet Judith, my favorite consultant (you can thank me later).
“LuLaRoe leggings are like no other! Buttery soft leggings, that conform to your body and are not see thru! I know too good to be true, but it is! They come in two sizes, One Size fitting girls sizes 2-12 and Tall and Curvy fitting gals 14-24. For our petite ladies we have Tween sizes that fit kids 14 to adult 00-0. They are like the pants on the Traveling Sisterhood movie, they are ah-mazing! Conforming to your body, they stay put all day and don’t sag at the end of the day. You don’t get panty lines and they are flattering for every woman! Available in solids and various fun patterns so that you may express yourself thru your leggings!”
I can attest that they are buttery soft, sometimes I sleep in them when I just can’t get myself around to parting with them. I love me some LuLaRoe, and so will your bridesmaids. Bonus rock-star bride points, you can get them in kiddo sizes too for your junior bridesmaids and flower girls so they match the big girls.
Judith, put together some package ideas for your inspiration. She’ll be happy to help you find colors and patterns that fit your theme.

If you haven’t heard of Jamberry Nails, they are the bomb biggity. Easy to apply they can have your girls nails looking beautiful in less time than it takes to order your coffee.
Bonus rock-star bride points – you can gift nail wraps that match your theme for your girls to wear on the big day, ensuring their nails look great in photos, but saving them some money.
Marny, my favorite Jamberry consultant, says “Jamberry nailwraps are a great way to add design to your nails at an affordable price. Made from non toxic material, Jamberry wraps are applied directly to your natural nail or artificial nail for a unique look you can’t find anywhere else! With just a few everyday items like a hair dryer, nail scissors, and a nail file you can apply JAMazing designs that last up to two weeks on fingers and 6 weeks on toes. There is no dry time, no chipping, and no harsh chemicals! It’s a fun and easy way for the bride and bridal party to glam up their nails!”

Do you have bridesmaids that are from out of town and don’t know the rest of the group? Why not plan a day of fun activities so that they can get to know each other? After spending some time playing together, the photos will be more fun and relaxed on your wedding day.
