I was just wondering what are the bridesmaids typically responsible for paying for? I know they pay for their dresses/alterations. Do they chip in for the bachelorette party, bridal shower? Do they pay for their own hair and make up, shoes? What else am I missing?

I’m the Maid/Matron of Honor in my best friend’s wedding this summer and basically what you described is what we’re doing. Her aunt, however, offered to pay for the bridal shower so we lucked out on that. But typically, I think the bridal party pays for the shower and definitely the bachelorette party. We bought our own dresses and shoes, and will be paying for our hair and makeup.

Most brides don’t require BMs to have their hair and makeup professionally done unless the brides pay for it.

Like jo.lee mentioned, we have our choice of getting our hair and makeup done. I’m just getting hair done and doing make up myself.
