Don’t keep the costs secret.
If there are people out there that you can rely on and expect to understand the financial burden of prepping for your wedding, it would have to be your bridesmaids. If you feel as if the wedding is taking a financial toll on you and you are having an issue with keeping ends meet, then by all means, you should confide in them and perhaps they can help you out a little bit. Be candid about the challenges that you have to go through. You really don’t have to worry too much about it. If you asked them to be your bridesmaids in the first place, then it goes without saying that they are your closest friends and confidante and this is what you should be playing at as much as you possibly can. Be open and transparent when it comes to things like this. It will help ensure that things pan out easier for you at the end of the day. The more you pay attention, the more aware you are of the ensuing costs and this could only turn out well for you and for the wedding that you are trying to get arranged after all has been said and done.
Travel and accommodations.
The bridesmaids usually foot their own bills when it comes to travel costs as well as accommodations. It is particularly challenging when you are expecting the wedding venue to be off somewhere that is remote and exotic. It is expensive and you shouldering everything at the end of the day can be a bit too much. You really don’t have to go through something like this. Your bridesmaids can more than take care of themselves when it comes to this department. If your budget can give you a little bit more steam when it comes to things like this, you can perhaps come up with an agreement to go halfsies with them on the costs and expenses. It’s not going to be that much when everyone is chipping in on the costs one way or the other.
You can rent out bridesmaids dresses for a discount price from wedding stores and other vendors but you also have the option to get them customized and to get them sewn for you from either a designer or a tailor. Suffice it to say, these dresses will not come cheap which is why it should be taken on by your bridesmaids themselves. Your Lancashire wedding photographer will get you great photos of your bridesmaids in these dress but you don’t have to stress yourself out too much over this.
Bridesmaids usually foot the bill when it comes to the bridal shower as it is oftentimes a surprise for the bride so you wouldn’t even want to worry yourself too much over this. This is nothing for you to worry about.
Hair and makeup.
You would want to look your best for your Lancashire wedding photographer when he takes your photos during the wedding. You would want your bridesmaids to look their best as well but you shouldn’t shoulder the costs for their hair and makeup.
