Bridesmaid on a Budget (Part 2): Save Money on Wedding Costs
Bridesmaid on a budget? Skimp elsewhere — the wedding gift is mandatory!

The Wedding Guru answers: Yes, it does get expensive, but unfortunately I can’t let you off the hook. A wedding gift is a must-do for a bridesmaid! However, covering the cost of a bachelorette party and a shower are optional, as is an engagement gift. If you and the other bridesmaids decide to throw a bachelorette party, keep in mind that you can control how much is spent. If your budget is starting to break, how about a luncheon at a moderately priced restaurant, as opposed to, say, a night in the city with limo service? It really is the thought that counts!
