Wedding Tips and Trends

Shopping for Bridesmaid Dresses


Did you know last year the average cost of being in a wedding was $618? This doesn't include travel to and from the wedding.

When shopping for bridesmaids dresses, you should consider the following:
  • The body type of the bridesmaid. You can still have the color you want but each attendant could wear a style flattering to her body shape. You want your friends to feel beautiful and comfortable in their dress. It will make the day a lot happier.
  • The cost. You can find a nice dress in the $75-$100 range. If your friends are in several weddings, it can get expensive buying dresses.
  • The accessories. Do you want them to wear matching shoes or will shoes of the same color be fine?
  • Hair and makeup. Give your bridesmaids the option of paying to have their hair and makeup done on the day of the wedding. This can cost $50+ per person.

Other expenses the bridesmaid has to cover are: travel (this could include to showers, engagement, and bachelorette parties), lodging, plus a gift.

Remember, these are your closest friends and family and you want them to stay that way after the wedding.
