If you and the out of town bridesmaids are all sharing a room the night before, then yeah, maybe I would expect that the other two bridesmaids would be getting a room too.  But if the out of town girls are just going to their room and you’ll see them in the morning, then I wouldn’t think you need to provide accomodations for the other girls.

I haven’t had a bride pay for my accomodations.  Some bride offer it as a gift, but it’s not an expectation, especially for local bridesmaids.

Are you sharing a room with the out-of-town BMs?

(Sorry, first answer deleted).

If the two other girls are staying at another hotel anyway, then I don’t see the point. And no, you don’t need to provide a room for girls who live in your town. That would be unusual since they have their own beds anyway 10 minutes away.

p.s. It’s quite normal to not provide accomodation for any travelling guests, so even by providing a hotel room for those 2 travelling BMs, you are doing something you don’t have to.

I’ve been in two bridal parties that were out of town and nothing was covered – which didn’t bother me and was not expected. 

One thing that did kind of bother me was when my best friend got married on my birthday, I was in the bridal party, and I got two drink tickets like everyone else… I thought she could have given me an open tab at the bar (which is what I would have done in her shoes).
