    I’m doing about that much– paying for their hair, a small piece of jewelry, and maybe a getting ready shirt or robe. I thinhk it depends how invovled they are also– I haven’t expected my BMs to do anything other than buy a dress and show up. No bachelorette party or shower, no help from them with DIY stuff or prep. So if they’d been more involved maybe I’d feel like I “owed” them more.

    Let’s see…. dresses… hope they’ll be under £50 each… a small gift… perhaps £10 towards some jewellery… shrugs/boleros/wraps… oh, and I’ll have to pay for accommodation and transport for one of them…

    Then there’s shoes. *sigh*. If they don’t have shoes in the right colour, I will be paying for those also.

    I think that’s pretty standard for the UK though.

    My only bridesmaid is my sister. I bought her dress ($175).  She has/will pay for everything else (new shoes, new jewelry, hair/make-up, hotel). 

    Her husband (my BIL of 15 years) will be our officiant.  So, plan to buy them a gift certificate to a really nice restaurant ($100-200) as a thank you gift.

    I have 6 girls. I’m paying for their hair (~$60) plus a few other more personal gifts. Should end up being around $100 at the end of the day.

    Are you going to give them a gift that doesn’t have to do with your wedding?

    I’m just doing the traditional Bridesmaid or Best Man gift, so whatever that jewelry ends up costing. Under $50pp, I think.

    I’m not asking that they get their hair/makeup/nails done, or that they buy new shoes, and they’re picking out their dresses with the requirement that they will wear them again. So their expenses are pretty minimal once pre-wedding parties and gifts are taken out of it.

    I paid $35.00 toward each of their dresses (customs bill came after they’d already paid the amount I thoght they weredso I didn’t want to ask for more after the fact) and got them each a pair of pjs for $20.00, a pair of flats to change in to for $30.00 and a picture frame for $20.00 as well as lunch out the day of the wedding so just over $100 per person. Then I paid for a 3 nights hotel for my shower and wedding for one that said she couldnt attend otherwise so another $600 on one.
