1. Consider the cost
Being a bridesmaid can be a little pricey. You have to pay for a dress, flowers, hair and makeup, the bachelorette party, and possibly more. An article on Jezebel suggests giving yourself a budget ahead of time. If you can only afford to buy a dress for 200 dollars, tell your bride that before she picks out a dress. That way, you don’t wind up disappointing her when you turn down a style she’s already in love with.
Also, consider how much time you’ll be giving up. A lot of the time, bridesmaids are highly involved in the planning process of the wedding. If you want to be a good bridesmaid, you have to be willing to donate some time to your bride.
