I’ve chosen my bridal party and I couldn’t be more excited. However, I’ve heard horror stories of how bridesmaids and brides can clash when it comes to the commitment. I thought it would be fair for me to pay for their hair and makeup and then have them pay for travel and their dress (keeping it in mind to make the dress budget friendly).
My bridal party is spread out since they consist of both college and high school friends so if they live over an hour away, they’re not obligated to make every trip and go wedding dress shopping since we all work, have other commitments, etc.
However, I hear some people say that the bride should pay for everything such as travel, hair and makeup and the dress.
I’m new to wedding planning so I’m curious. What have you guys done and do you have any suggestions?
