    Hi just wondering what other people were doing/buying for accessories for their bridesmaids and flowergirls?

    I am having four bridesmaids, one is my niece who is more like a junior bridesmaid as she will be 10 when we get married. We are having two flowergirls, my youngest niece and H2Bs niece.

    So I have been looking at jewellery to buy the girls for the day, have seen some lovely stirling silver earrings, pendants and bangles etc but for each bridesmaid it adds up to almost £40 each and an extra £30 each for the two flowergirls..............however I have seen some lovely costume jewellery which isn't as dear because its not real silver.....I guess I am just worried in case it 'looks' cheap. They may not wear the stirling silver jewellery again wheras the costume jewellrey if they wear it only for one day it wont be as wasted an expense, if that makes any sense!!

    We're getting our bridesmaids a nomination charm each, trying to find a bridesmaidsy one. Our flower girls im unsure what to get them, thinking a teddy or something along those lines, a proper keepsake. We're also getting our flower girls some bracelets and our bridesmaids some necklaces from the place we're getting our rings. I'd say there is a high chance the jewellery would be worn again, the necklaces we're getting are hearts and so cute so could be worn again and again. Costume jewellery sometimes isn't worn too much as can leave green marks

    i have 4 flower girls 3 of them I'm buying tiaras from monsoon (£12.50 each) and the 4th will be too little for a tiara so will wear a flower headband made from the florist. i haven't thought about actual jewellery yet though.xx

    I got necklaces from the bay for my bridesmaids. The pendant was marked as real silver, but the chain wasn't, as we discovered when one lady kept wearing hers and got a reaction from the metal. They looked fine, and for one day it won't matter. My flower girl had a necklace from [email protected]'s Acc355ories and that was fine too.

    Thanks ladies,

    Yes Im worried about not getting real stirling silver in case the nickel irritates the girls' ears!!But yeah if its for one day it might be ok......hhmmm. But it's trying to stick to a budget and choosing something we all like that is quality is the difficulty. Doesn't help that I am so indecisive lol.

    Personally I didn't feel matching jewellery was necessary, so in our case, they were what they wanted, though part of some of their gifts was jewellery (we bought our junior BM a silver, pearl and CZ necklace, then one of the adult BMs a thin gold ring, another a gold 'love knot' ring and gold and green opal stud earrings, and another a gold, pearl and diamond necklace and gold and pearl studs). They all wore the jewellery apart from the one with the green opal earrings as she wore some pearl ones that match the necklace she was wearing, and they've all worn the jewellery loads since the wedding, which was exactly what we hoped :-) If we'd gone with matching sets they wouldn't have worn them much since as they have different tastes, so it felt like a bit of a waste.
