How to Be Content with a Small Wedding Party
Wedding expenses are no small matter. Being part of someone else’s wedding party can be expensive too. Today there are so many facets of a wedding: engagement party, bachelor party, bachelorette party, destination travel costs, gowns, clothing, and of course…the gift!
The average cost of being a bridesmaid ranges from $1200 to $2000 these days. Sometimes all the expense infringes on friendship. The more people in the wedding, the more costly it will be. Some brides and grooms now choose to have one attendant each, and they don’t have to be the same sex. A bride can have her brother as attendant, a groom his sister, etc.
If it is important to you and your fiancé that the wedding include a shared meal, then cutting down on the wedding party expenses can be a way to find funds for food.
Wedding traditions evolve and change. Each couple is free to create their own experience. Just to be sure to photograph it all for your future generations!
