Who Should Pay For Bridesmaids' Expenses?

I'm Asking: Who Should Pay For Bridesmaids' Expenses?

The money I've spent as a bridesmaid is some of the most guiltless spending I've done. It was all for my closest friends or family and supporting them on their wedding days. These efforts came back full circle when they stood by me on my wedding day, and there weren't any money issues standing between us behind the scenes.

For every wedding where I was a bridesmaid, we all paid for our own clothes, shoes, makeup, hair, and travel expenses, but I've heard of other groups of friends that have done things differently. Do you think the bride should be responsible for her bridesmaids' wedding-related expenses, or should the bridesmaids pay their own way?
