9 Money-Saving Tips for Bridesmaids
9. Begin Any Money Talk With This Phrase …

plans. Even though we all had jobs, I loved the way she began any conversation about costs with, “I know we’re all on a budget….”
This simple and elegant phrase eliminated the pressure to automatically say yes to every request out of obligation and opened the floor for fair questions like, “How much would two nights in Atlantic City cost?” As far as I’m concerned, these seven words might be the best gift a bridesmaid could ever receive.
