Are you paying for your bridesmaids dresses?

Recommended Posts

Im not paying for my bridesmaids dresses. However I am looking for less expensive options for them, and what will fit in their budget. We are trying to keep it under 200.

 

However, I am buying them gifts as well as Ill be treating them to a pedicure before we leave. Ill be paying for pedicures for My mother, my 3 bridesmaids, myself, my mother inlaw and my FI grandma.  I was going to pay for them to get a manicure or gels as well, but I just cannot afford it.

I wasnt planning on paying for the bridesmaid dresses! i am thinking about doing a spa day with all my girls! Do you think i should plan it for before we go or while we are there? My only thoughts are- i want this to be a vacation for everyone also, So i dont want to take up a whole bunch of their time... thoughts?

From what I see for prices for resort spas, its quite pricey. Plus you will be so busy when you get there is my guess.

 

I personally am going to do it before we leave. We fly on a monday so I will do a day with them on the saturday before we leave :)

I was planning on doing this too... but it is kind of not working out. My FMIL (who I am close with and was intending on treating too) is going a week early, and has already booked her pedicure... I doubt she will want another when we get there! And my mom is the same way. My sister (and MOH) has expressed little interest in it too. SO I thought I would pay for their hair, but now they all want to do their own! So... well, I guess that is one less thing for me to pay for! I am paying for my sister's dress though, so that is good. And for my stagette we are going to a spa, but it is too far in advance (like, a month and a half) for a pedicure or manicure to last. So I guess they are on their own for it!

I think it is a great idea though, and if possible, try to do it ahead of time. Plus, what a great way to relax with the girls during last minute planning and prep? Awesome!

Oh no!!! I havent brought it up with any of my girls yet, I hope they will be interested! My FMIL doesnt live here so she will not be joining unfortunately. I totally agree it will be a nice way to relax before leaving especially in the dead of winter (I see you are in Southern AB- I am in Calgary) so we know how cold it gets!!

We paid for the BM dresses which were just under $200 each. They do not seem to appreciate that we paid for their dresses and 2 out of the 4 expected we pay for them which I think is really rude!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
