I have read this in Emily Post! I think it is traditionally done but not always, I know we didnt because we couldn’t afford it. Just be honest with him, that you cant and maybe try to help find something inexpensive!

We are not paying for our Bridesmaid or Best Man or MOH’s hotel!

We purhcased my MOH’s dress and BM’s tie.  We are also paying for my MOH’s make up and hair…so no we won’t be paying for their lodging!

It all depends on if you have the money. Most people know that there will be some extra costs associated with participating in a destination wedding.

My fiance and I don’t play to pay for anything for our party with the exception of the dress and the shirt for the men, but maybe not that based on what we decide to do about even having a wedding party.

I heard proper etiquette is to pay for 2 nights stay for your bridal party.  So that’s what we’re doing. 

They’re still responsible for the other travel costs, but the 2 nights stay is usually the minimum they’ll be staying out of town for a wedding (rehearsal dinner one night, wedding the next).

My husband and I tossed around the idea of a Destination Wedding and then decided not to do it because we would only do it if we could cover the entire wedding party’s travel costs and it just wasn’t possible.  I don’t think you’re technically required to do it.. but I would feel uncomfortable not doing it.

My friend paid for all the attendants for their Destination Wedding last year.  I don’t know if everyone does it though.
