Is spending more on the BMs ok? Opinions Welcome!
My BMs are all friends, none are family members. Their dresses, hair, make up and shoes are more than triple what the GMs tux rental costs. My BMs are also paying for part of my bridal shower and also bought gifts for that. And are throwing a weekend long destination bachelorette party, which they are all paying for.
My GMs are all family- 2 out of 4 are siblings and their parents are paying for their tux rental. No bachelor party is happening. Literally they are just showing up to rehersal and wedding (Which all of them would’ve done anyway since they are close family).
I just figured with such a huge difference in what each group is doing and spending that- it would be OK to spend more on my BMs.
Gifts for bridesmaids:
Swavorski necklaces (70-90 dollars depending on what they picked)
Kate Spade (65 dollars)
Something else for another (10-15 dollars) I like to give gifts in sets of 3s
Gifts for groomsmen: 100 dollar gift certifericate a to atubhub. And to be honest Ive been debating if 100 is too much, since 2/4 are literally spending 0 and all 4 are doing nothing extra other than showing up. I was thinking of doing 75 each so FI and I could save 100 bucks.
