Are you buying their dresses?
Are you buying their dresses?
In America, bridesmaids generally pay for their own dresses. In some other countries, this is not the case.
4 and no, I am not buying their dresses
I have 5 (3 friends, a sister, and sister-in-law-to-be!). Not buying their dresses, but it’s their only expense and I’m insisting they don’t get us a gift.
Two attendants, one male and one female. So it could be either two, one, or none (because the only female attendant was a maid of honor), depending on how you count. And I allowed our one female attendant to wear a dress she got as Maid/Matron of Honor for another wedding, so neither she nor we paid for a new dress.
Traditionally in the US, a Bridesmaid or Best Man pays for her own dress. In the UK, the couple pays for all the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.
I’m stuck between having none or having one and I am not buying their dresses. I will buy jewelry and maybe nails if they want them done.
6 bridesmaids including 2 MOHs.
I am not buying their dresses. We chose a black convertible wrap dress. I am purchasing the tube top extra with the dress about 10$pp.
I have 6 bridesmaids, and I’m renting their dresses.
I am having 6 🙂 I am not buying their dresses and we’re also doing convertible dresses. I’ll buy their jewelery though and paying for manis and pedis
5. Three best friends, his sister (I have no sisters) and one friend that I met through Fiance, he was friends with her before he met me. And I will be paying for the shipping for their dresses, and Im asking that they give me an older pair of comfortable shoes that I will glitter for them, so in a sense Im covering their shoes.
I’m having four and I’m buying all their outfits (one’s a guy, so I’m paying for his suit hire). They get to choose their dresses too, so hopefully they’ll get something they can wear again 🙂
All but one of them struggle financially, so I figure I should help them out – I’d rather that they’re able to stand up with me on the special day, than feel that they can’t because of money issues.
5 – and I gave 2 of them $75 beause the other girls’ moms paid for their dresses.
3 or 4 (haven’t asked the last girl yet, I’m waiting to see her in person). Two of them are my sisters and I will be buying just their dresses.
I’m having 3 bridesmaids im not buying their dresses n im glad theyre ok with it because I thought it was custom for poeple to buy their bridesmaids’s dressed
I am having one Maid/Matron of Honor. We are having such a small bridal party because 1) I don’t have that many girl friends! I had thought about asking a couple close guy friends, and 2) My Fiance only really wanted one Best Man/Groomsman.
And because I only have one lady in my bridal party, I’m giving her “purple” and she can get whatever dress she wants. And if she already has one in purple, then all the better!
