Do you buy the bridesmaids dresses, shoes etc or do they buy themselves? Thoughts?
When I was a bridesmaid I brought everything. She is now my bridesmaid and she is happy to pay for her stuff. My sister does not have a huge amount of money so I will contribute towards her dress and shoes
You buy it x
I bought their dress but they paid for shoes & accessories etc xxx
My bridesmaids bought theirs. If I am bridesmaid I would be happy to buy my own
When i was my sisters she brought the dress but we brought our shoes xx
I'm buying mine their dresses and paying for their hair and makeup. I've asked them to pay for their own shoes
If you pick the dresses etc you pay for them, i think its distasteful to ask someone to pay for something you want.... if they pick their own i think its ok to ask them to pay
I'm buying for all mine x
When I was my sisters bridesmaid she paid for my dress and shoes and I paid for hair nails make up etc myself and my sister is now my bridesmaid with the same deal lol xx
I bought my bridesmaids dresses, shoes, hair, makeup. If your asking them to dress a certain way you should pay for it
I really really think that if you want bridesmaids you should pay for there dresses. You really don't have to pay a fortune for them. X
I paid for dresses! They all used shoes they already had as I didn't want to dictate footwear as it's not nice if it's uncomfortable!
I have brought the dresses and paid for hair and make up. I have said they can put what ever they like on their feet as they are long dresses. If they had been short dresses I would have brought the shoes as well.
I'm paying for all the dresses, shoes, hair & makeup on the day - were getting married abroad so wouldn't expect them to pay for it all xx
I bought the dresses, paid for the hair and makeup and got accessories as presents for everyone. The girls all wore shoes they already had and were comfortable for them x
I've bought the dresses,accessories, paid for make up and hair. And even paid for the hotel rooms the night before for them because I want them to stay with me. All I want them to pay for is their shoes xx
I've got my 2 sisters and 2 daughters and my step daughter and step grandaughter. I'm paying for the daughters and step daughters/grandaughter and my sisters want to buy there own has they know I've not much money xx
I'll be buying dresses accessories hair and makeup, shoes are a personal thing so letting them wear their own :)
I think it's ok for them to pay if you're going to go cheap. If you want proper bridesmaid dresses from a boutique though I think that you should pay as it's unfair to your bridesmaids as it's so expensive
I have asked my bridesmaids to pay to have their make up done & to buy shoes, but have bought everything else for them x
I paid for their dresses ,alterations , shoes ,hair and hair accessories
I bought everything apart from the shoes, they bought their own so they could choose what they wanted, thats y am only having 2, so I could afford to pay for them
I bought the dresses,shoes and flower crowns but they are paying for their hair and make up to be done themselves
This question has been asked a million times!!
I will be paying for everything except hotel rooms x
My bridesmaids bought their shoes, but I paid for everything else.
I'm paying for dress,hair and makeup. Jewellery and shoes,she's buying herself
We paid for everything. After being asked to be someone's bridesmaid previously and then receiving a text asking how is was going to be paying for the £150 dress I hadn't even seen. My feeling was that she had chosen the dress, I wasn't allowed to see it until the fitting day so why should i pay for it.
Although my bridesmaids had full choice of their dresses, shoes etc I felt it was only right that We paid for it.
You buy them x
If you've asked them then you should pay unless you already discussed this when asking or they have offered. I'm paying for my bridesmaid dresses but saying they can wear their own shoes.
I brought my bridesmaids there dresses but have said they must buy there own shoes x if there a true friend it should be easy to say if your finding it difficult to approach the subject then re-think your bridesmaids! Xx
Hi I am buying my bridesmaid's dress :)
I've bought my bridesmaids dress but as I am on a budget I got them off amazon and they are gorgeous. I'm going to ask them to buy the shoes as they can wear them after the wedding x
My h2b sister offered to buy her own as she's knows we're on a tight budget and I'm hoping my sister in law will too but I'm going to buy my friend's one as she bought mine when I was her bridesmaid
I'm buying our bridesmaid dresses; they have a choice in the dress they wear but we will still pay for it. Will be a cheapy off amazon as we have younger children involved in the wedding party too and think it would be great if we are all in the same colours.
That's our choice so it's only right we pay!
My sister brought her dress, it would of been us but i fell pregnant (was 5 months when i got wed)
The only thing I've asked them to buy is their shoes and a bag if they want one, the rest I have covered the cost for.
I bought mine. Also paid for their hair x
You Buy them ! if you can't pay for them don't have them
