I have six BMs and have a budget of about $35 per girl. In the weddings I’ve been in I’ve just gotten like a make up bag and lip gloss, probably $15 total so it’s definitely not expected for a bride to spend more than $20-30 on their girls, BUT it is very typical to have 6-8 BMs and the bride is usually 21-23 and typically not super well-off.

For the GMs, FI is planning on getting an engraved mug and maybe a money clip for his 6 GM + Ushers. He’ll probably spent about $20-30 per guy.

I’m not offering to pay for hair or make up, it’s completely up to them if they want it done. To me $100 is way too much to spend on BMs unless you just have one MOH or something.

We definitely spent less on the groomsman. I think my husband spent $50 or less on his 5 groomsmen. I spent about $150-200 on each of my bridesmaids and I had 6. I’m not crafty and my friends aren’t into handmade/keepsake type things so I got them all robes, makeup bags stuffed with VS gift cards and makeup, and gift cards to each girl’s favorite store.

Necklace(that they don’t have to wear to the wedding!) = No more than $35

I spent about the same, however i also paid for their hotel room for the nightbefore the wedding and breakfast on th day of. I ended up getting them a tea pot and matching tea cup sets from a place my sister worked, She used her discount and i think it was about 40 per girl.
