Asking someone to be a part of your bridal party is a big deal. Being a bridesmaid is a pretty serious commitment, not only in terms of time but also of money! So it’s very important to be considerate of your besties when it comes to the expenses involved in your big day. The average bridesmaid will spend an average of $1,500 to be part of a bridal party, and that figure may be higher, depending on where you live!
One of the larger expenses involved in being a bridesmaids is the attire, most of which can only (and will only) be worn once. It’s a sign of kindness (not to mention girl code) to choose a dress that’s affordable and attractive for your besties to wear when they stand beside you on your big day. Do your bridesmaids’ budgets a favor, and consider choosing a dress that’s easy on the wallet.
