Bridesmaids expenses

Bridesmaids expenses are often uncertain. Who pays for what on and before the wedding day? The guidelines concerning the brides parents and the grooms parents are fairly well established in wedding history but what the bridal party members cover is not exactly clear all the time. Here is a list of things that bridesmaids are expected to pay for to help out your wedding day.

Wedding Ensemble

Bridesmaids expenses include dresses, shoes and accessories (including jewelry, unless you’re gifting it to them) are their responsibility.

Bridal Shower

Depending on who’s hosting, your maid of honor and bridesmaids are often expected to foot the the bridal shower bill. But if your family is hosting (or cohosting), a portion of the costs and responsibilities—from décor and activities to food and beverages—will fall on them.

Hotel and Travel

Traditionally, bridesmaids expenses include how your bridesmaids get to the wedding and where they stay is on them, but they should feel comfortable discussing their financial needs with you. If it’s in your budget, consider going halfsies on travel and accommodations—you can at least help them out by reserving hotel room blocks so the prices are at a discount.

Bachelorette Party

Your pals are responsible for all décor, activities, food and drink on your hen night.

Wedding Present

In money, time and effort, your bridesmaids are paying for a lot, so don’t be shocked or offended if they don’t get you a wedding gift. If they do plan on gifting you something, they can always go in on one thing with other bridesmaids. You might prefer to receive one nice gift over several less expensive ones anyway.


The Bridesmaids of course don’t have to pay for the Wedding Band! Thats on you or your spouse and Big Thanks Band offers the best value around. We are a Sydney wedding band that you can afford. Our wedding entertainment is second to none and in combination with Crash Symphony productions we can record and film a night for you to remember.
