i have the same feelings as you. i really would like to pay for their dresses... however, not sure i can swing it

 

some people i've talked to about it say it's not necessary as our wedding in mexico will cost the same as the other out of town weddings i've been in.

Although I don't think it's necessary or expected, we bought our 1 BM and 2 GM outfits. Let's see, we also bought the Flower Girl's dress, my dad, jeff's dad, & my mom's clothes for the wedding- basically almost everyone in the wedding party! lol

I wish I could ... but I simply can't afford it at this point. What I will do is once we get closer to the date and I see how our funds are looking. If we have enough, I will put some money towards the final payments of our bridal party rooms.

I am only having my sister and I let her pick out her dress on her own and it was $60 at macy's. I did offer to pay for it because it was just hers nd I knew she would find a cheaper one. I don't really have the extra money but I felt like it was a nice gesture to do it. She wouldn't let me though. She is my older sister and is better off financially than me so she said thanks but no thanks! :)

 

I think it's nice you want to do that for them. If it's not in your budget, maybe you can afford like $50 each and tell them all you will but that towards it and you wish you could do the whole thing but you can't. They will appreciate that. Or try and find a cheaper dress or a more casual dress they can wear again so it's not so much of an expense...??

Hi Erika, I really lucked out and found my girls dresses on sale after Christmas! I wanted to purchase them for the girls as they are already paying so much for their trips.

 

All I can suggest is check out the sales racks. You never know, especially now that fall is comming they will try and get the summer dresses sold for the new season.

 

Good luck :)

I have 7 BMs and would have liked to purchase all their dresses, but since we have all been in each other's weddings (or will be), I figure it all evens out. I am spending just as much $, if not more, on their BMs gifts. As for the 7 guys, we did buy all their suits (pants, jackets, and shirts) which will be close to $200 ea, but that will be their "gift". They will definitely be able to wear them again.

My sister was in a DW and the bride paid for her dress, but she was the only BM. It can get pricey when you are having a lot of girls in the wedding, but it is a really nice idea when having a DW.

I only have two BM's so I will be paying for their dresses. We are probably going to find really casual ones though.. possibly with a nice print on it and a bit flow-y..

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
