    I have issues with a few of the items on that list. For starters, I don’t know about the bride pays for lodgings bit. It certainly doesn’t seem to be widely practiced as I’ve never known any brides to do that. It also seems strange because if MOH were just a guest she would have to pay for her own lodging. I could see it being nice as the bride’s gift to her MOH, but not as a requirement.

    I also think a group bridesmaid gift isn’t always a good idea. It can lead to problems when different bridesmaids have different budgets so I think it’s safest to have everyone get their own gift.

    • I paid for my Maid-of-Honor’s hotel room and dress. Of course, she was flying in from Hawaii with children, so I really thought it was the least I could do. :) In my experience outside my own wedding, however, I have never known a bride (or groom) to pay for the room of anyone in the bridal party.
