One of my favorite bridesmaid gifts was a customized pearl drop necklace with matching earrings that I was given to wear at the wedding. Every girl received a different pearl that suited her personality and we looked uniform in photos and got a sentimental keepsake. Admittedly, I lost an earring during the after party. However, my point is, giving your gals a personalized gift that they can use during the reception is a perfect way to say thank you while keeping in theme with your party. If you have friends like me, who can't keep track of tiny earrings, consider getting them a handmade purse from BeeGee Bags . The silk clutches can be customized to fit your theme—pink lobsters for a beach bash and peonies to match your flowers. Or, you can choose a purse with your maids' favorite motif as a marvelous memento she can carry with her anywhere— and hopefully not lose! —Brie Schwartz
