Not sure if this topic is in the right spot but its worth a shot!
Bride here getting married in November of this year! I only have 5 bridesmaids and decided to keep my bridal party on the smaller side. I'm not sure typically what I should be paying for the girls? I've read that I should either be paying for their dresses or their hair and makeup - what about tip? This is where my dilemma starts, my girls aren't paying for my bachelortte party - we got lucky that someone knows someone to let us stay at their beach house for the weekend, and they're not throwing my bridal shower - my mother and future MIL are paying for everything so those are two major expenses that they've been spared from. I hate to sound rude/bridezilla but I feel that since the girls are saving money would it be acceptable for them to pay for their own dresses, hair & makeup? I do plan to buy them all matching accessories, an outfit for getting ready in, and our hotel room for the night before. What does a bride do?
