- Wedding: April 2011 - AnthonyÃ¢Â€Â™s Fine Dining
I’m a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding this August, and she recently decided on bridesmaid dresses. She found two different dresses that she likes, so she wants to put 4 of us in one and 4 of us in the other. Well, one of the dresses is $40 more than the other so her mom is paying the difference.
I just thought that was so sweet, and as someone trying to save up for my own upcoming wedding, I really appreciated it! It definitely made me start to think about how I can find ways to cut my bridesmaids some slack! Are any of you doing little things/paying for little things to show your bridesmaids how much you appreciate them?

That was really sweet! I paid for my girls’ hair, bought them each a shawl to wear to the wedding, and had them pick out their own black dress that I hope they can wear again with no input or veto power from me. I definitely would have appreciated picking out my own dress in weddings I’ve been in 🙂 That was really sweet of your friend’s mom! It gets tough to pay for things when you have several attendants – it adds up fast but is SO appreciated.
