Not sure what’s up with these random posts, but I’ve just read a few different posts from you that seem kind of negative. Everyone does things differently and everyone has different traditions. Personally if I was asked to be in a wedding, I would automatically expect to pay for my dress/tux.

I agree @ithinkpink90. Unless it’s explicitly stated, I would expect to pay for my wedding attire.

People have the option of declining to be in the wedding party if they don’t want to pay for a tux or dress.

I think its a cultural thing. people from different places have different opinions. In Australia if you’re in the bridal party you pay for your own outfits. But I know that in the UK the bride and groom pay for the wedding party’s outfits. Just depends on where you’re from

Well, you’re not asking anything, just stating an opinion, so i’m assuming you’re clearly trying to start a debate?  I don’t quite get the point of this post at all?

I however, disagree 100%

I think people who post this have not planned their own wedding.  I used to have kind of a ‘tude about that sort of thing.  Then, I started planning my own. 


I will bet wannabee has not planned a wedding, or paid for one.

I agree that if the bride and groom are choosing what people are wearing they should cover the cost.

Not really sure why this is a statement and not a question.

1. “who pays” is never a clear cut thing, ethnic, social, economic, and geographic variables affect beliefs about who should contribute in what ways- there is no rule across the board

2. you are only mentioning bridal party members with a $400 expense- what about 80$ tux rentals and 130$ dresses? IN MY AREA it seems that the wedding party expects to pay for their own gear, but it comes into different territory when the costs ARE extraordinary. (wasn’t there a post a while back where the fi reaaaally wanted dresses for the bridesmaids that were around the 1000$ mark?)
