Who pays? You or the Brideslave?
Because I can't focus on one thing at a time, lately my mind has been wandering towards what my bridesmaids will be wearing.
I am not sure if it is Utahn culture, LDS, or North-Western, but for my wedding and for my friends weddings, the bride buys the dresses for her bridesmaids. It's factored into the wedding budget from the very beginning. The more I read through the weddosphere, the more I realize that this isn't the case in many other instances.
So a question for all of you: Will you be buying the dresses for your bridesmaids? If you assign them a dress, how do you set a price range? If the bridesmaids are traveling, don't you feel that it is kind of a burden to force them to buy a dress as well?
P.S.-Does anyone ever get the evil little thought that it would be fun to pick out a horrible dress just to see if your girls would actually wear it?
