    In America, bridesmaids generally pay for their own dresses. In some other countries, this is not the case.

    I have 5 (3 friends, a sister, and sister-in-law-to-be!). Not buying their dresses, but it’s their only expense and I’m insisting they don’t get us a gift.

    Two attendants, one male and one female.  So it could be either two, one, or none (because the only female attendant was a maid of honor), depending on how you count.  And I allowed our one female attendant to wear a dress she got as MOH for another wedding, so neither she nor we paid for a new dress.

    Traditionally in the US, a BM pays for her own dress.  In the UK, the couple pays for all the BM dresses.

    I’m stuck between having none or having one and I am not buying their dresses. I will buy jewelry and maybe nails if they want them done.

    6 bridesmaids including 2 MOHs.

    I am not buying their dresses.  We chose a black convertible wrap dress.  I am purchasing the tube top extra with the dress about 10$pp.

    5. Three best friends, his sister (I have no sisters) and one friend that I met through FI, he was friends with her before he met me. And I will be paying for the shipping for their dresses, and Im asking that they give me an older pair of comfortable shoes that I will glitter for them, so in a sense Im covering their shoes.

    I’m having four and I’m buying all their outfits (one’s a guy, so I’m paying for his suit hire). They get to choose their dresses too, so hopefully they’ll get something they can wear again :)

    All but one of them struggle financially, so I figure I should help them out – I’d rather that they’re able to stand up with me on the special day, than feel that they can’t because of money issues.

    I am having one MOH. We are having such a small bridal party because 1) I don’t have that many girl friends! I had thought about asking a couple close guy friends, and 2) My FI only really wanted one Best Man/Groomsman. 

    And because I only have one lady in my bridal party, I’m giving her “purple” and she can get whatever dress she wants. And if she already has one in purple, then all the better!
