Planning a Bridal Shower on a Budget
Hooray! Your close friend is getting married and you couldn’t be happier for her. As her Maid of Honor, you dream of wowing her by planning a bridal shower and executing it as perfectly as you’ve seen on Pinterest, but you find costs add up quickly. As part of the bridal party, you might be expected to spend almost $1,700 on your wedding look, gifts, and travel. Being the best friend and Maid of Honor you can be, you are also covering the bulk of the cost of a bridal shower and possibly filling gaps where others are unable to contribute. Your bride loves you for that golden heart, but your bank account might have another opinion about it.
The last thing you want to do is desperately swipe your credit card and rack up debt to meet expectations, only to feel the added stress. Your bride should be understanding of this too. Before she writes you off as just being cheap or oblivious of your responsibility, sit down for a chat about what you would hope to do for her and what you can realistically afford. Once you’re on the same page, apply these frugal tips for planning a bridal shower and you’ll be able to stretch whatever budget you are working with.
