You picked out the perfect dress, shoes and jewelry for their bridesmaids and even may have helped them pick out their hair style. But did you let them know what color nail polish you prefer them to wear? It is a good idea to let your lovely bridesmaids know if you want them to maybe have french nails or soft and neutral pink nails on the weekend of your wedding. Have a bridesmaids that is prone to wearing bright yellow or lavendar and it does not match your color scheme? Then it is okay to let them know what you are hoping them to have on their nails and toes that weekend.
A get a lot of requests from my brides asking for ideas for bridesmaids gifts! I LOVE Lands End's Lighthouse Bag which comes in 7 different colors and could be custom monogrammed with your bridemsaids initials! And make it even more special by including monogrammed towels for their trips to the beach!

With the onset of winter arriving this week in Chicago, your lovely ladies may need a little pashmina wrap to keep them warm on your wedding day. I recently found this GREAT website for "Pashminas":http://amazingcollections.com that you can search for colors that match of complement your bridesmaids dresses. They are offered in cashmere and viscose ranging in price from $18 to $40 and is a great present (and also useful) for your bridesmaids!
They also offer white and white pashminas which will match your dress and can be used for a little added warmth while you exit your limousine!
