Simple Ways to Help Your Bridesmaids With Their Finances

Simple Ways to Help Your Bridesmaids With Their Finances
Post written by: Aria Halstan

 

While sticking to a budget is essential as a bride, it is important to remember that your bridesmaids may have a financial plan of their own as well. A lot of additional costs come along with being a bride’s right hand gal— like the bachelorette party, dress, and hair and makeup. When allocating all of these costs together, plus preparing for the actual wedding, funds can become a sore subject as much as it is an honor for them to be apart of your special day. To ensure your wedding party avoids falling into a financial burden, here are some tips to consider.

Hold a Group Meeting
The best way to talk about financial requirements is to schedule a meetup with your wedding crew. By bringing every bridesmaid into one space, divvying up responsibilities becomes easier and individual tasks are well-known moving forward. When each bridesmaid has knowledge of their spending limit, it can reduce stress and allow them to budget their funds correctly, to avoid unexpected expenses throughout the planning process. Let them know that you’re aware of the costs associated with being a part of your wedding to make them feel comfortable with sharing any payment issues they may experience along the way.

Share Some Great Ways to Save
When you recognize that a bridesmaid’s budget is just as important as your own, your willingness to help out will become a stronger dedication. Most likely, your bridal crew will have questions about managing money, tasks and deadlines. To avoid a financial disagreement or mishap, share your personal advice and help your friends through the planning process if needed. Are there practices you’ve found successful that could be beneficial for your bridesmaids— using a personal loan to keep your expenses on track, renting your dress instead of buying one, or outlining a budgeting spreadsheet to stay organized? Share your methods and take value in your guidance so your girl gang can learn from your expertise.

Provide Travel and Hotel Accommodation Options
Showing your appreciation is key, and surprising them with a low cost wedding accommodation option will be sure to put a smile on their faces. Travel can be costly, and while reserving a fancy room at your provided hotel is as well, communicating with a facility manager may not be a bad idea. Let them know you’ve chosen their hospitality as the perfect experience for your guests, and be sure to ask if they offer any wedding party discounts during the stay. If so, this will lower the overall bill for your bridesmaids, preventing the chance of a financial freakout.

Don’t Expect Immaculate Pre-Wedding Events
A bridal shower and bachelorette party take on more preparation and costs than you think. You may have bridesmaids who are wealthier than others or who are in life situations that require a lot of saving up— so don’t anticipate each bridesmaid contributing the big bucks. And while you might be expecting an extravagant gift from each of your guests, remember that your bridal party is already spending a lot of money on your wedding. Make sure to add some less-expensive gifts to your registry for people who are on a budget. Be flexible, understanding and realize that certain details you may have wanted may not pass their budget restrictions. Instead, encourage your women of honor to plan on the cheaper side with DIY decorations, an inexpensive venue or setting a price limit on gifts.

Let Them Determine Their Look

If you’re a lenient bride who wants less control over dress, hair and makeup options, have your bridesmaids pick and choose what they feel most comfortable doing with their appearance— just as long as it’s wedding appropriate of course! Letting your girls pick out their own dress in the designated color you’ve provided will give each person wiggle-room in their own budgets. Hair and makeup could be necessary for you as a bride, but for your bridesmaids, let them walk down the aisle with their natural hair, and do their own makeup if they want to. If your bridesmaid has a specific makeup and hair routine of their own, let them embrace their look.

How To Select The Ultimate Honeymoon Destination

 

 

Your honeymoon is the perfect opportunity to savor the beginning of your new life together. After piecing together your wedding, you’ll be ready for a break from all the work and effort that went into your big day. Here’s how to plan a honeymoon that will be fun for you both, recharge your batteries, and start your marriage out on the right foot.

Plan and prioritize

Just like ensuring your wedding day goes off without a hitch, planning an unforgettable, amazing honeymoon takes time, contemplation, and effort. Start by selecting a destination that will make you both happy. Forbes notes statistics indicating most couples end up funding their own honeymoons, so mull over how much you can spend and what your priorities are. Think in terms of a trip aimed toward celebrating your union and what is unique to each of you. With that in mind, both of you should weigh in on the whats and wheres.

Traveling abroad

Heading to foreign soil might be exactly what you and your partner have in mind, and options are almost limitless. Here are a few fun suggestions:

If variety is what you’re seeking, an Australian honeymoon could be just the ticket, offering everything from rainforests to mountain ranges to cosmopolitan cities to desert sands. Bear in mind, Australia is huge, so seeing as much as possible often means a road trip after you arrive down under. If an epic road trip sounds appealing, consider purchasing a vehicle for your adventure rather than renting. It’s typically a substantial money-saver since you can resell your investment before you head home, and it allows you more freedom during your explorations. Gumtree offers a terrific search tool for finding the perfect wheels for your travels.

If an exotic, remote, tropical island is calling your names, consider the Seychelles archipelago, which is home to sandy beaches, coconut palms, luxurious resorts, and wildlife not unlike the Galapagos. You can dine on Creole cuisine, lounge in the sun and sand, shop for batiks, and even stay in a beach hut. Conde Nast Traveller points out the best time to visit Seychelles is between May and and October, and you can stretch your dollars furthest on the island of La Digue.

For history and romance, you can hardly beat Venice. Canals, stone buildings, art, fine food and gondoliers are a major draw, although the city can be particularly crowded, especially during the summertime. If that is a concern, you can use this handy calender to determine how heavy the city predicts crowds will be during your stay. Also note it can take time for getting around Venice, and getting lost is not unusual, so some experts suggest leaving your schedule loose during your visit. You also can purchase a pass for the city’s public transportation, which is a great way to boost convenience and make the most of your budget.

Staying in the States

Of course, the United States offers a cornucopia of wonderful honeymoon destinations. Some of the most popular choices include California wine country, the Hawaiian islands, or Las Vegas, or you can think outside the box and opt for somewhat unexpected destinations, such as Minneapolis, Nantucket, or the Adirondacks.

Sit down together and talk through what features are important to you. Do you want to lounge in sun and sand, visit a new city, take a cruise, or venture abroad? Make some notes about your favorite kinds of activities, rather than specific places, and decide how much you can budget for the trip. Also, if you opt for international travel and don’t already have a passport, normal turnaround time for a new passport can take around six weeks. A name change also takes around six weeks, so arrange accordingly.

Planning a great honeymoon starts with a well-chosen destination. Think through what will work with your budget and timeline, and make choices that will be fun and satisfying for you both. With a little time and thinking, you can get your honeymoon and marriage off to a perfect start.
