Cost Of Being A Bridesmaid [Infographic]

The real cost of being a bridesmaid

While there is a plethora of information about the cost of a wedding and how to be a budget savvy bride, there isn’t quite as much information about the cost to the bridal party – specifically the cost of being a bridesmaid. It’s safe to say that bridesmaids typically spend a little more when it comes to attire and bear the brunt of helping with wedding planning compared to their groomsmen counterparts. In fact, being a bridesmaid (speaking from personal experience!) can often be almost as stressful as being the bride!

Courtesy of the infographic experts at Visually, we came across an exact breakdown of what being a bridesmaid means by the numbers. Here are a few highlights:

  • Total number of bridesmaids per year = 11 million
  • Average travel cost for the wedding = $300
  • Average cost for hair and makeup = $100
  • Average cost for the dress (minus alterations) = $150

And that’s just the beginning! No wonder brides are constantly in search for the perfect bridesmaid gift! Scroll down to find out how much the cost of being a bridesmaid racks up to after every wedding event and activity is taken into account.
