Weddings can be financially draining enough without the thought of giving all those participating a gift. Recently, I found this fun article on's blog, that gives five inexpensive gifts for bridesmaids. I contacted and got permission to re-post some of their article here.

I hope this can save other brides some money like it has for me...

As a bridesmaid it’s always nice to get a little gift from the bride and groom to say thanks for being a part of their special day. Here are five jewelry bridesmaids gifts that would be perfect for your favorite ladies that won’t cost you a fortune:

1. Bangle Bracelets:'s blog talks about his fabulous gift that costs under $90. You can get them in Silver or Yellow & Pink Rhodium, and you can also get the matching earrings for only $50 (in Silver, Yellow or Pink too).

2. Pearls: A timeless classic. So why not get them for your bridesmaids? They don't need to wear them on your wedding day, but they are great to have for any occasion. There is a great set of a Pearl necklace & matching earrings on for only $95.

3. Drop (dead gorgeous) earrings: Check out the 14 3/8 carat pear shaped CZ earrings has. They will make any bridesmaid stand out…Not only are they super sparkly but also affordable at $45.

4. Colorful pendants – Add a simple colorful pendant that matches flashy bridesmaid dresses like Citrine and Garnet pendants.

5. Get personal! Personalized jewelry with your bridesmaid’s names on a silver or gold pendant can be a great gift, (and you could also get something with their birthstone or zodiac sign).

There you have it! Some inexpensive gift ideas that will make your bridesmaids forgive you for all the bridezilla moments.
