Bridesmaid gift help.

Tue Jun 21, 2011 1:47 am

Hullo ladies...

my complete lack of taste has reared its ugly head again BUT i'm determined not to let it win this time. We've decided to do engraved gifts for our bridal party. Pocket watches for the boys and jewellery boxes for the girls. I've got the watches ok but the boxes have stumped me and i was wondering could i pleeeeeeeease have opinions.

Option a)
box1.jpg


Its a little bit ornate, maybe too ornate but its quite lovely.

Option b)
box 2.jpg


Its elegant but a complete opposite of the first one. I worry that its maybe too sparse and looks like a pretty silver coffin.

please help...i dont know which to choose!!

Adding to the majority - i love the first one. It is ornate, but not over the top, which makes it beautiful!

Haha I liked the second one best anyway. I don't have that much ornate stuff so the first would look out of place in my room. I'm sure your BM will love the "silver coffins".
