Recently I decided on gifts for my bridesmaids (more on that later) and some of the other individuals playing a part in our big day. We're having my 4 younger girl cousins help with the guestbook and handing out programs. They range in age from 11 to 17, so I was having a bit of a hard time finding something all of them could use.

When I was the guestbook attendant at my older brother and sister-in-law's wedding about a year and a half ago my sister-in-law gave me a monogrammed toiletry bag as my gift. I've used it SO much since then with all of the trips home from school. Two of my cousins are almost college aged, so I knew they'd use a toiletry bag, and the younger two are always spending the night at friends' houses, so I figured it would come in handy for them too.
I conveniently found some toiletry bags that coordinate perfectly with our theme, and bought four of them. The bags would've been a little hard to actually embroider, and let's face it, I'm all for projects that I can get done in one night, so I found iron on letters for them. I think they turned out well!
I can't wait to package them up all cute and give them to the girls! Hopefully they get some good use out of them!
What did you give the people who played a smaller role in your big day?
