Are you paying for your bridesmaids dresses?

Recommended Posts

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 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.
