Since I have four of my own sisters, and Kevin has two, I decided to ask them to be my bridesmaids instead of friends, since my sisters and now sisters-in-law are my best friends anyway. My sister Melissa truly believes that gift wrapping is as important as the gift itself, so I decided to make the bridesmaid gifts beautiful while still keeping them inexpensive.
I started with these simple white jewelery boxes. Since they are white I figured they would match with almost everything. They cost .83 cents each at xpedx.
The necklaces I opted for as the gift were $9.00 each at Forever21. They are pink pearls, and five strands of varying lengths. I bought them so all of the bridesmaids would look unified, since I decided I wanted them to buy their own dresses in different shades of gray. They were able to cut off different strands of their necklaces so some were long and some were short. I love how their different styles all turned out.
I made pink and white tissue flowers using this tutorial for the toppers. Then I placed the card under the necklace, and with the see-through top of the box it looked dramatically different. You could also put wallpaper or gift wrap on the bottom of the box.
Photos of the bridesmaids coming soon!
