My bridal party is planning a jack and jill for my fiance and I. I know a lot of my bridal party does not have a lot of money to pay out for this (even though they all get back what they put in). Part of the bridal party are okay with FI and I helping out and the other part says definitely not. Does anyone know the ‘rules’ on the whole thing? I really don’t want my wedding to burden anyone.
Thanks for any advice!

Supposedly your friends take care of the cost. I agree with you about not adding an extra cost to the wedding party. My FI does not like strippers and wanted to do something else so I suggested the party because it will give everyone a chance to meet before the wedding. My FI decided that he will cover the cost because secretly he wants me around so my girls dont plan anything for me. hahaha

There are no real rules and perhaps they are diy’ers, with a nominal budget in mind. You may want to suggest that you want a particular cake or a particular color and are willing to donate money to get it. Usually, it is a surprise and everyone chips in. You may say someting like, “My FI loves imported beer, so we will donate to pay for that.” That would be helpful without them feeling you are taking over. You may ask your MOH to ask your mom for help (and you could give $$ to your mom who could be a part of the planning). Good luck!!
