    We didn't pay for any of the WP's accomodations either - I didn't even think about it honestly - like someone else said they are getting a vacation too! We got the BM's and GM's gifts of course and that was enough!

      We are not paying for our wedding party - I would love to but it is just not in the budget - plus we have 9 BM and GM each - yes I know we are nuts but we just couldn't leave anyone out

        Okay, good I'm not alone.. I don't think my bridal party expected us to pay for anything but I just got worried we were breaking some huge etiquette rule :).
        We are going to get them nice gifts - but haven't figured out what yet...

          I agree with you - I am just going to get some extra nice gifts. We can't afford to pay for everyone's trip. No one has really even mentioned it though - so it wasn't expected at all! They for the most part paying for their own clothes as well - I bought the ties and pocket silks for the men, and if I decide I want the girls to have an accessory, I'll pay for that as well.

            I'm with you girls. As much as I'd love to be able to put up our BP, we just can't swing it. I never got the feeling that anyone expects it either. I do want to get really nice gifts for the BP though & for those of you that have bought/plan to buy their wedding attire, that's a really nice gift!!

              I think you should do whatever you want that is within your budget. If you can afford to, great; if not, then that's fine too. FH and I are paying for all of our guests accommodations, but that is because we are renting the entire venue out for the week so we have the ability to accommodate all of our guests, but we are letting them know that this is our wedding favor to them.

                Here's what we've done so far:

                + Paid for MOH's room deposit
                + Paid for Makeup/Hair Stylist's room deposit
                + Paid for 1 extra night of shared hotel room between MOH and Makeup/Hair Stylist

                Originally I had 4 BMs including MOH so I wasn't sure how this was going to work out, but now I'm down to 2. So I'm now planning on also buying both of their dresses. Plus a little something special for each of them as a gift.

                We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

                We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

                  We thought it would be a nice gesture to the BP to cover some, possibly all, of their lodging expenses, perhaps pay for an upgrade to a nicer room.
