    You do. They are more your wedding flowers rather than bridesmaid accessories.. Never heard of bridesmaids paying for their bouquets.

    I have never heard of the bridesmaids paying for their flowers. Their dresses yes, but sometimes the bride pays for those too.

    The flowers? Never.

    The only thing the wedding party pays for is their attire such as the dress and tux/suit (if you are in the US at least, you pay of you are in the UK and possibly other places).  They also pay for their shoes and makeup and hair if you are fine with them not having a specific style and give them the option to do as they please.  Anything else you want them to wear or carry (flowers, jewelry, etc.) Is your responsibility as well as if you require to have their hair and makeup done professionally.

    PrincessPeach13 :  What are you talking about?  How was I snobby?  And why are you singling me out?  Everyone agrees here.  You asked for opinions.

    PrincessPeach13 :  I would flat out refuse to pay for flowers as a bridesmaid, so yeah… you pay.

    If you’re in the US, it’s pretty accepted that bridesmaids pay for their dress. In some circles they might pay for shoes or their hair and makeup but I would go into this just expecting them to pay for their dresses and nothing else.

    You do. You should pay for everything, IMO. Where I am from it includes their dresses, and if you want hair done/ makeup that is up to you too. I know in lots of places the bridesmaids pay for their dresses, but if you are dictating what they wear I think of it as a required ‘uniform’ and it should be covered. 

    This is why weddings aren’t cheap 🙂 Even the small ones.
