    Ok so I’ve been a bm 25 times! I have spent anywhere from $300, which was a very simple backyard wedding and at my house bridal shower, to $1400 for my sisters.  It really depends on what they expect and how big things are for instance the one bridal shower has 20 ppl and I did appetizers and summer foods. My sisters was 80 people which obviously required a caterer, I also threw her bachlorette, the dresses she picked were $200. So it can very greatly.

    I lucked out when I was Maid/Matron of Honor in my friend’s wedding and didn’t have to travel. All I paid for was my Bridesmaid or Best Man dress, which we all got to pick whatever style we wanted as long as it was in her colors, a wedding gift and a few things for wedding decor. Overall I think I spent $150 for the wedding about $50 for her wedding gift. 

    Her bachelorlorette party was a small get together with just the other 2 BMs and we each paid for our meals. She had a baby and didn’t really want/expect much.

    ETA: I’ve only been in a few weddings, three to be exact, and I didn’t have to contribute anything to the other two.

    I’ve been a bridesmaid a handful of times and each time I would estimate that I spent more than $1000. Between the dress, shoes, hair, makeup, shower (which in 2 cases I covered almost all of) and bachelorette parties, it can really add up.

    I’ve been in several weddings and haven’t spent more than $350.  Dress with alterations usually runs $150 – $200, I usually get payless shoes, and then modest bridal/bacherolette parties.  The brides have not required, hair, makeup, special shoes, or destination bacherolette parties, though, so I consider myself lucky.  But, since I live in Bermuda, I don’t think I’ve ever spent less than $1000 on travel and accomodation to the wedding.  The price I pay, I guess. πŸ™‚
