Money is always a touchy subjet. When it doubt, it is usually best not to inquire into her finances. However, since she is family and because she and her daughter are both in the wedding, it might be okay to set up some expectations. Just let her know the general timeline of typical expenses and ask her to let you know if she thinks it might be a problem. My bridesmaids are ordering their dresses right after Christmas, so I included a few sentences about the price range, deposit and let them know that they could come to me with any money issues.

Friendship and finances almost never mix well, throw in dueling weddings and clashing personalities and you’ve got a prime set up for a cage match!

If it were me, I would do my best to make sure I had the dress and whatever else your ladies are going to need to buy picked out and priced…THAT way, you’ve been proactive and upfront with the cost and your cousin can either decide to allocate money to that or not, regardless, you are prepared for her to cry poverty over the entire thing, which means you won’t have to get upset about it and when that time comes, happily tell her it’s fine and you would love to invite her as a guest.

Why would the other BMs help her? Wouldn’t that be your job?
