I am the matron of honor in my sister’s wedding. The two big events are the bridal shower and the bachelorette party. I am just curious what is typical to ask the other bridesmaids to pay for? I figured most of the cost of the bridal shower would be on my parents and myself and ask the girls to chip in for a gift. For the bachelorette party, I figured the hotel cost, limo, drinks, and dinner we would just pay for my sister and then pay for our own costs. Does this sound reasonable, am I forgetting other things. I just don’t want them to feel overwhelmed by asking to pay for a lot. Thanks for your help!

I think the the bridesmaid all chip in for the shower with you as well, I did when I was just a bridesmaid in my friends wedding. The rest sounds right to me 🙂

Depending on the wedding you might be paying for your dress, hair, makeup, shoes, accessories as well.

My bridesmaids are paying for their share of the bachelorette party (which is a weekend get away that all attendees are paying their way for, including me), their own shoes, their inexpensive bridesmaid dresses… and that’s about it. My mom’s picking up the tab for the shower and I’m covering make up, hair, jewelry and gifts.

In every wedding I was in, I paid for my dress/alts and shoes, chipped in for the bachelorette and shower, paid for my hotel room if wedding was Out of Town, and got the bride a gift for the shower and wedding. The bride always paid for hair (one wedding I was in we all just stayed at her parents’ house and did eachother’s hair/nails/makeup) and gave us jewelry as gifts to wear.
My BMs paid for the bachelorette, my shower location was free, they bought their dresses/alts, they wore their own shoes and jewelry, and I paid for their hair.
