The first point we would like to discuss concerns the bridesmaids’ dresses. If you have quite a high wedding budget, you may buy your friends’ dresses.
But, if it is not the case, then you may not ask them to buy a $300 bridesmaid dress, especially if they are students, or if they will soon be bridesmaids at another wedding. It is important to consider their problems and to find a solution that will please everybody. In case nothing seems to be appropriate and right for their budget, you may let them wear a black dress that they already own; and purchase for the wedding, some identical accessories, such as: their jewelleries or en elegant scarf.
Even if the becahelorette party or the bridal shower is not something that you will plan, it would be best if you would keep these things under control. As a result, you may establish a certain budget for these parties, so that everyone could afford to pay its own share. Otherwise, the richer bridesmaids might ask for expensive things, that the other female guests might find hard to cover for.
Also, another important point that concerns your bachelorette party and your bridal shower is that you should organize these two at the same time. This is the best solution, in case your friends are out of town. Thus, they will save some money, and they won’t have to travel twice.
So, my dear brides you should be careful at some point. It is true that this is your big day and that everyone must please you, but at the same time you should also be: understanding. There are some things people can not control, as a result, please make some compromises and give up some items, so that everyone could be able to enjoy the planning of your wedding.
