Are you paying for your bridesmaids dresses?

Recommended Posts

I also for BMs dresses and I get a big discount because I ordered them at my friends boutique.  The dresses are so nice and beautiful but the prices ranges from $125-175.

I'm not buying bridesmaids dresses, but then again I'm not having bridesmaids.  I'm having one maid of honor and I'm not buying her dress, but I told her to get whatever she wants to.  I'm very laid back and showed her my colors and I know she'll look fabulous!  I don't want her to be uncomfortable or to get something she'll never wear again.

That's also a great idea. At least she feels that she is a special one on your wedding day.

I have two bridemaids and have bought both of their dresses, we also purchased the guys outfits as well, as part of their thank you gift, for coming so far and being a part or our day.

I am thinking that I will probably end up paying for BM's dresses (only have 2) and have them take care of their own alterations.  I am also going to pay for their hair appointments as part of a package deal as well as hair for my mom and my FMIL.

I'm just going with MOH.. no bridesmaids. She will get her own dress, one that she can use for other occassions as well.  We will get her a nice gift and that is it.  Sounds cheap, I know, but this is the deal we made back in HS :)

I didn't pay for my bridesmaid dresses.  Although I did go to Davids Bridal and found affordable dresses ($80).  I told the bridesmaid's that I will be giving them jewelry to wear and they can pick out any dressy white shoes they want to wear.  I got them each matching pearl necklaces with earrings.

We didn't pay for the bridesmaids dresses or groomsmens clothing.  The BM's dresses were only $180 - and we all went together and they decided on the dress AND the color. (I didn't care about color).  The groomsmen clothes we picked out in August 2010 for our May 2011 cause all the summer clothing were on sale, so we got $200 outfits for $90 each.  BUT - we paid for $500 towards each attendants room at the resort - and we're still getting them thank you gifts, so in total we're spending about $4200 on our 12 attendants.

We are having two bridesmaids and two grooms men and I think we will be paying for their outfits.  I will also be paying for my bridesmaids jewelry.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
