Weddings - Bridesmaids Expenses

Being a bridesmaid in a wedding is truly an honor. Along with standing up with the bride in her special day, some responsibilities and expenses go along with this role. Typically, the cost of being a bridesmaid is not overly expensive but because there are associated costs, if you have been asked to be in a sister or friends wedding, you need to consider how much time and money you will need to put out.

While each wedding is different and the amount of finances required will varied based on the size andlocation of the wedding, the following are some of the main factors to consider:

The gown, undergarments, shoes, and other special items could be the responsibility of each bridesmaid. In some cases, the bride and groom will pay for the gowns although this is not always the case. Therefore, when asked, you should make sure you have all the information.

If the wedding/reception is in another city, state, or country, you could be responsible for your air/train/bus transportation to and from the location as well as ground transportation to and from the airport and any hotel accommodations

Typically, the Maid of Honor is responsible for organizing and planning the bridal shower and/or bachelorette party. In addition to her responsibility, the bridesmaids will also pitch in for the cost of food, drinks, favors, decorations, and so on.

Each bridesmaid will buy the bride and groom a shower gift and also wedding gift

If you find that you have been asked to be in a wedding as a bridesmaid but are on a tight budget, you can do some things to save money without skimping on style. Generally, a bridesmaid can expect to pay about $750 to $1,000 per wedding. However, by shopping for your wedding gown on discount, end of season sales, or at designer shops on the Internet, you can purchase a matching dress to the other bridesmaids at substantial savings.

Regarding travel, shop eBay for travel coupons, which often includes huge savings on air travel, hotels, and restaurants. If you cannot find discount coupons then you can save by booking your travel as far in advance as possible. Additionally, you might consider off-hour flights to save money.

When it comes to the wedding shower, in most cases a bridesmaid will pitch in from $100 to $200 each for all the goodies. If this is a bit too steep for you, then consider looking at various restaurants that can work with you on price and menu options. Finally, the bachelorette party is another event that does not have to be expensive. You can hold the party at a local restaurant that offers a buffet or you can even send out invitations as a potluck. No one will be offended and you can save money.
