Who should pay for bridesmaid dresses and alterations?
In this article, I’d like to devolve a bit a very womanish question: “Who should pay for bridesmaid dresses and alterations?“. I heard this question lot of time and actually I read it on some wedding forums, and finally I’d like to offer you a simple answer because the solve comes in finding the best solutions. “Who should pay for bridesmaid dresses and alterations?” have just two possible solutions. It all depends of how many bridesmaids will have the bride and here are some explanations:
-if the bride will have a single or two bridesmaids, she can pay their dresses and the alterations. Usually, when the bride pays the bridesmaids arrays, she imposes to them a certain color, design, pattern and so on. Because the wedding is the most important day in life of every woman, the bride must be a diva and she have the right of imposing to her friends a contrasting array. If the bride will wear a white or an Ivory gown, the bridesmaids dresses can be red or purple or green and so on. As well, the bride can collaborate with her bridesmaids and can buy a beautiful material and go all three to a dressmaker and there you will set the model and the dress line of every bridesmaids. This solution is also costless.
-if the bride has four, five or even six bridesmaids, I think already the price of wedding planning will rise up like the sun in the morning (in the first second it’s between trees and in other second is right in your face). In this case, only if the sponsors insists and also will help with some money, the bride can pay the bridesmaids dresses and alterations. In other situation, the girls will buy their own dresses like another proof of friendship and support.
