“Who pays for Wedding Party Attire?”

Most of the time the wedding party will pay for their own attire. Sometimes the bride will offer to pay for the jewlery or makeup. And groom will offer to pay for socks or hair cut. Generally the bridesmaids and groomsmen will foot their bill of their own attire, festivities and travel cost’s. When thinking about being part of the bridal party keep in mind the expenses that come along with being part of a friends special day. Having HONEST communication is key because no bride or groom wants their friends in debt just to be part of their wedding. If this becomes a problem see where you can use that special friend to help out for the day.
