9 Money-Saving Tips for Bridesmaids
3. Set a Budget for Gifts
Attending a wedding is like having a friend who celebrates three birthdays in one month, especially if you decide to buy gifts
for the shower and bachelorette party too. Multiply that by three weddings in one summer, and suddenly your budget will be
seriously in the red.
First, decide what you’re realistically able to afford—not what you think your bride-friends will expect. Sure, we all want to give the gift of fine crystal, but if you have rent and student loans to pay, salad bowls may work just as well. And never underestimate the power of a thoughtful, personal, D.I.Y. gift.
