I don't know if this is anywhere else, so sorry if it is a repeat....I was just wondering approx. how much you were spending on bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts? I don't know how much we should spend or what. Just looking for a round about estimate...THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT!!!!!

around $50 for BM and GM, $30 for ushers and readers
EDIT I've also offered to pay for some or all of my MOH's dress, because she is flying from Ireland

We spent $50 on each member of our bridal party. And $50 on my parents. A total of $250 for gifts, approx.

We have a big bridal party (7 BM, 7 GM, 2 FL, 1 RB, parents, etc.) so we won't be able to give expensive gifts. I think around $20 each but I am really not sure yet.

We are going to get the guys bowlers aka derby hats. We think it will make for a really cool pic. We will probably get them something else too. (depends on how much we end up spending on the hat.)

I was talking to FH about this today, after the holidays we are both going to start putting money aside for these gifts now because we want to make sure we can spend a decent amt on our BP, def a plus to start planning so far in advance.

I think with the guys hats, and the girls jewelry, we are going to buy one of each for the next 6 months. That way it isn't just one big lump sum.

We spent $45 a piece on our 5 bridesmaids and $20 a pieceon our 2 Jr BMs and the flower girl.
We spent about $25 a piece on our 4 groomsmen and 2 ushers and our soloist.
We spent about $30 for the parents and grandparents. (6 sets)
So, we spent a total of about $640 all together.

Not quite sure how much we spent on ours, because I was picking up gifts as the year went buy. . .that I found as good deals. :) The GM I know though, because we bought those about a month before the wedding, and only bought the GM one thing. They were about $18.00. . .engraved pocket watches.
