    These are your closest friends, and your family.  Buying them dinner and asking them to partake in your wedding is a HUGE deal. If it’s not, then you need to think about whether or not they should be a part of your wedding party at all.  

    Your wedding day should not be a stress filled, crazy day, rather a day of love and joy.  If anything is an issue now, it will be an even larger issue day of.  Just do what is easy and what feels right!

    I think “norms” can depend on where you live and your social group and maybe even how old you are. I think most people expect to pay for things (at least the dress and suits) when they are in the bridal party. But I know it is a trend now for a lot of bride and grooms to pay for these things. I still would consider it pretty generous. I also know it has become popular to ask the bridal party (especially the girls) with cute cards or gifts but many still just pick up the phone and just make a call. So your dinner idea is great and definitely more than enough. Your Bridal Party will really appreciate it, I’m sure.

    And since you are the first, you might have the advantage of setting the precedent. =)

    You are paying for dinner AND all their dresses, shoes, accessories? I’d say that is enough. 🙂
