I tried to keep costs under 300-400 for the bridal party at my own wedding, I didn't want it to be a massive drain on them to support me.
I have been in two weddings as bridesmaid. For one I spent about the same, 300ish. For the other, the dress alone was $300, and the bride insisted on hair and makeup that cost us each another 300, as well as mani, pedi, tan.... it ended up costing me over $1000!

Asking someone to buy a suit is a huge ask, especially if they don't need a suit. I see nothing wrong with suit hire personally.

I just don't understand why people ask friends or family to be part of their wedding but then expect them to fork out hundreds of dollars for an outfit, chosen by the bride and groom. Really irks me.
I think it's unfair for then to ask you to pay for any of the clothing, especially as you are travelling to attend the wedding.
Just my opinion but I think if you have a wedding, it's your responsibility to dress your bridal party.

Thank you all, I feel better about being so annoyed!
Whilst we're comfortable, we're not made of money. I'm on half pay and not back at work til sept, the wedding is one week after ds2s first bday and 6 weeks before Xmas so financially there is so much more I could spend the money on!
But you can't pick family!
