So I have chosen my two cousins to be some of my bridesmaids and they are being an absolute pain in MY BUTT.. All the other bridesmaids baught there dresses no problem, but MY cousins are telling me that I should be the one to pay for the dresses. Im about to turn into bride zilla! Everyone else does not have a problem with it but them. The dresses cost 140.oo Am being a total witch or it this their problem?

$140 is fine. They’re being crazy! Anything under $150 is reasonable nowadays.
Tell them if they don’t want to buy the dresses, they don’t have to be a bridesmaid!

I second that. $140 isn’t bad… plus theres like bestbridalprices.com that sometimes is cheaper.

Are they young, and just don’t know that the bridesmaids pay for their own dresses? Can their parents help?

I have two cousins in my wedding as well. I ended up buying of of their dresses. It is not worth the fight. What is the norm in your family? All my girlfriends expected to buy their dresses, however, the only other wedding my cousins have been in was my Aunts who bought our dresses.
It sucks, but you might as well add it to your budget and forget about the drama.

Sounds like they don’t know what is expected of them as BMs. Have your Maid/Matron of Honor send out an infogram with all the Bridesmaid or Best Man duties and expectations on it so that they know that you’re not a bridezilla, and so there isn’t confusion in the future.
