SIL wanted to order DS1s whilst there, who is a page boy. But it was going to cost $180 plus shoes, I'm sure I can buy cheaper on eBay plus I have no idea what he'll grow between now & then.
But it's ok... Cos she has bought the boys socks... Of all the things I could of covered I'm sure socks were one of them lol!

Personally for out wedding we covered all costs.
However I have been a bridesmaid several times and have had to sometimes only pay for the dress but in the other instances I have had to pay for everything from dress, hair, make up plus it was a destination so accommodation etc.
But I always ask what I will be paying for before accepting the role because I know everyone has a different idea on what is fair.
I also feel that it is their day so I very supportive of whatever they want.

Personally, I think that the there should be little, if any, expense for the bridal party. If the bride and groom want certain things then they should be the ones to pay for them.

If you are paying for it yourselves as the bride and groom the sky is the limit if you can afford it, we made some outrageous choices but got exactly what we wanted. But we paid every darn cent ourselves!
I think choosing expensive things and expecting others to pay for it is gross, and disrespectful to what are supposed to be your favorite people.

To be fair though I thought $300 for DH was being pretty reasonable in my head.. I didn't think it would even go over that!

I think $0 is reasonable. YOU are doing THEM a favour by attending/being in their wedding, not the other way around. Why do people getting married think that the whole world stops for them?? I just don't get it.
I would personally tell them that I couldn't afford it and ask for a less expensive option, or respectfully excuse myself from the bridal party.
