- Wedding: February 2013
I think that it is an honour to be a part of a wedding. And it would be only courtesy for the bride to pay for the bridesmaids dresses, shoes, hair, makeup etc. I am paying for all of my girls.
The bridesmaids are there to assist and support the bride on her day. Having been a bridesmaid myself, it is a very long day and hard work ensuring that the bride is calm, looked after and her dress/bouquet is carried when needed.
I think it is a bit stingy if you ask the bridesmaids to pay for their own dresses, it would be like hosting a dinner asking yout friends to bring their own chair, cutlery and food.
My personal opnion!
