I am trying to work out the financial details of my wedding. The bridesmaid dress I have been looking at are a little on the expensive side. But, I would also like them to wear matching shoes or jewelry which would also double as their wedding party favors. Anyways, do I budget out so that I expect them to purchase their own dress? Or do I chip in up to a certain point (for example: 75% of the cost?)? Or do I ask them to pay and then let them know that we can assist if they are having trouble paying for it?
