In the UK it’s customary to buy the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses which is fair enough if the bride is picking it so if I were having BMs I would definitely pay.

I bought my bridesmaids their dresses!  But I actually ended up custom making every dress for each girl (i’m a fashion designer)
So my case was a little different,

I paid for everything for my bridesmaids. I dont think being a part of our wedding cost them a cent 🙂 Im happy with that and they were amazing on the day and looked beautiful so no regrets! Moneys just money. The wedding is over now and even though it cost us a bomb I wouldnt change a thing 🙂

I will be including the attire, etc for the bridal party in the wedding budget, so yes I will be paying for the bridesmaids’ dresses. For me I think the attire etc of the bridal party should be included in the budget, like you include flowers, venue, photography etc.

I had 2 BMs and I just let them wear dresses they already had (in black).  I wasn’t picky about the length, material, or design.  I originally told them they could wear any dress in pink, white, cream, black, beige, or black, they both chose black.  The only expense my BMs had was travel (from CA to NC).

I did buy my BM’s dress, but they were literally $30 dollars each from JC Penney. I just went with navy blue maxi dresses. I really wanted to be able to pay for their dresses but I knew I wouldn’t be able to if they were more than $100 so I scoured the department stores until I found the perfect navy blue maxi dress.  It turned out they were only 30 dollars! I could not have been more ecstatic.
