It is always an honor to be asked to be a bridesmaid or maid of honor in a wedding. Being by the side of your good friend or family member when they stand at the altar on their big day and sharing in the journey to get there is pretty special! All of that aside, it does come with some expenses. We found an infographic on the web aimed to breakdown some of those costs:

Couples should try to keep these figures in mind when planning the involvement of their wedding party and make sure to communicate with everyone in their party to ensure that the expenses are not a hardship for anyone. Being open to cost alternatives makes the experience better for everyone, a $200 bridesmaid dress may not be doable for some so its good to consider choosing a color and material and allowing the bridal party to find a dress that fits their style and their budget.
