I'm going back and forth on whether or not I should have the bridesmaids pay for their dresses. Of course if everything else wasn't so expensive, I would have no problem paying for them. But that is not the case. I also feel like out of the entire wedding, other than making it to the events, I am not expecting any other monetary contributions from the bridesmaids. Also, what is a reasonable price to pay for a bridesmaid dress? I would let them know up front when I do the proposals exactly what they will be responsible for, that way there are no surprises throughout the planning journey. What should I do? What has everyone else done?
