Bridal Party Etiquette

Recommended Posts

@@jackshayne0123....I'm appalled at Pookie20's post above! In the months since finding this site I've never encountered anyone that's rude or unsupportive let alone as obnoxious as that. Unfortunately maybe a troll if that's their first and only post on this site. If not then hopefully will quickly learn the culture on this board!




I think that's very generous!

@@megthomson I'm with ya, what I said was very toned down and not really what I was thinking in my head at all LOL. There were a few curse words too...but I tried to be respectful..I noticed that too, it's their one and only post...odd. Hopefully the last? Anyhow....


@@diadiamond I think that's very nice of you to offer for your wedding party! I'm sure your party will be appreciative. Don't let anyone make you second guess what you want to do for them, it's all about what you feel and what your budget allows. People don't attend weddings thinking "I wonder what they'll get me", gifts are not expected, it's a nice gesture and whatever you chose will be great! They are attending, and standing up for you because they love you and want to support you, and that's all :)

We will not be paying for our bridal party's travel expenses, but I LOVE the idea of paying for an excursion for them. I was trying to think of something special to do and that thought never occurred to me. Fantastic :)

Every destination wedding I’ve gone to has been about 7-10 days long, and mine will be too. It doesn’t take 7 days to get married, the wedding usually takes place at the mid-point. Then there is relaxing and excursions and fun. It is a vacation as well as a wedding, so I don’t think it’s fair for the B&G to pay for the bridal party’s full vacation, wedding-related expenses sure.

We were thinking of giving our bridal party $100.00 each towards their trip as a gift.  I'm not very picky so I'm letting the bridesmaids and groomsman pick their own attire, shoes, jewlery, ect. We have 10 people in our wedding party so paying for their entire trip is definitely not in our budget.  Am I doing enough, or should I be doing more?

Absolutely!  That's very generous!

    • 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.
