Being asked to be a bridesmaid is a great honor, but it can also be a lot of work and - let's be honest - expensive. It is not uncommon for modern bridesmaids to cover the costs of their dresses, shoes, hair, makeup, transportation, and lodging.

Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches is here to offer a few simple ways to show your bridesmaids how much you appreciate them.

If you expect them to cover the cost of their dresses, it is only courteous to be respectful of their budgeting needs. Find out what the maximum budget is for each of them, and then try to find dresses that are at or below the lowest price.
