Chanel, Kate Spade, or Hermes?

I was checking out In Style Weddings and I caught myself laughing out loud when I saw In Style's recommendations for stylish BM gift ideas. Let's see what In Style came up with, shall we?

  • Chanel Sunglasses $375: Nope. That's more than my rent payment.
  • Perfume Flask $96: I can think of better uses for a flask.
  • Hermes Cashmere Blanket $970: Do pass Go, do not collect $200, go directly to jail if you own a Hermes Cashmere Blanket. Although I wouldn't mind if one of my BM's got this for me.....
  • Laminated Fabric Tray $70: Not unless I want my BMs to stare at me in horror.
  • Leather Folder $490: For a folder? That's just funny.
  • Orange Resin Pendant $49: Who thought that was a good idea?
  • Damask-print Mela-mine Plates $40: Pretty sure all of my friends already have plates.
  • Kate Spade Card Case $155: Ridiculous.

  • Daisy Gold-plated Bracelet $78: Last time I wore/wanted to wear anything with a daisy on it was when I was 9.

Oh and these were just a few of their suggestions, others included: a compact with Swarovski crystals on black glass$95, Teapot $95, Ceramic Vases $44.

Sorry to my lovely BM' won't be getting any of the above gifts. Hope you understand.

I know brides who have splurged on their bridesmaids with these types of gifts...
I on the other hand, did not. I gave mine their day of jewelery. It was about $40.00 each.

Wow. What a list! I would be happy to receive almost any of them, but I'd have to take a second mortgage out to BUY any of the in mass quantities for my friends.

What bride has the budget that she would be willing to put down that much money? Any extra money I have after the essentials is going towards the honeymoon!

I'm always jealous of people with pretty towels because my towels are my house are so plain and boring.
