You should buy their tickets to the bridal show.  They are going to support you, but chances are, a wedding fair is not their choice way to spend a Saturday.

As for other expenses, in the US, typically the bridesmaids pay for their own dresses (though before you decide on a dress, you should discuss budget with them). 

The bride pays for shoes and accessories if she wants something very specific, and the bride pays for hair and makeup if she requires that the girls have it done professionally. 

You don’t have to pay for accessories if you let them choose their own within general parameters (i.e. “silver jewelry” and “black shoes”), and you don’t have to pay for hair and makeup if they are free to do their own.

Bridesmaids are responsible for their own transportation and lodging costs.

ETA: I see now that you are in the UK; seems like I’ve read before on the bee that in the UK the bride usually buys the dresses.
