          I still don't know if I'll pay for the dresses or not, but I will definitely have them wear little black dresses that they will be able to wear again.  I think that's a nice gesture so its not a dress they wear only for the wedding

              Paying for the bridesmaids' dress has been a perennial problem for brides to be.  It actually depends which type of theme you hold for the wedding.  If you put the theme ala- sex and the city, then you do not have to pay for their dresses as they can go freestyle.  You can as well settle that you are going to shoulder the ones for the maid of honor and pay just some part of the others.  It will ultimately be up to you.

                I paid for half of the BM's dresses which was how much I had to pay to order the dresses.  The BM's have to pay for the balance and their own alterations.

                  I am paying for all 6 of my BM's dresses (ouch on the wallet) BUT i figure, as many have mentioned, it's the least I can do since they are paying for flights to our wedding in the Riviera Maya!


                  I have a question for those that are paying for dresses - are you asking that their hair be done/up? If so, are you covering the cost or asking them to? I'm not sure the proper etiquette on this....we are paying for 3 nights of their stay plus dresses, so even though they are paying for pricey flights, I'm not sure I can swing the cost of their hair too....but I'd like it up...ahhhhh going crazy over this! lol...any help would be appreciated :)

                    Hi ladies,


                    I paid for (they were ordered and received) for 6 BM's dresses and will pay for my flower girls as well.  FI will pay for the GM suits and ties this is our way of saying "thank you for traveling for our wedding."  With that said, I am not requiring their hair to be done in a certain fashion however; I did ask that since they are wearing convertible dresses that the hairstyle would compliment the dress.  Also, I gave them the option of having their make-up done by the artist that will come on site, to do their own or to go to the spa.  Most will have theirs done by Norma Perez-Cancun and this will be at their own cost. 


                    As much as I would like to pay for everything, this would equate to having a wedding just as costly as staying home.  And we don't want to negate the main reason that we chose a destination wedding.

                      I'm of the same opinion. I too only have three bridesmaids, and since I'm asking them to pay to attend a DW, the least I could do is pay for the dresses.
