I paid for my DD's flower girl dress for my sisters wedding.
I and my other sister also paid for our own dresses for bridal party ....
BUT - none of us really are struggling, and the wedding was already a big expense.
If you cant afford it, speak up. Honestly - if they then want a specific dress/outfit or really, really want your children in the bridal party, its up to them to pay for it.
Its not worth the struggle on you, in order to fit in with them

PILs paid for DS's suit for SILs wedding he was 14 months old and the ringer barer. We were happy to pay as we had asked our bridal party to pay for their outfits (did have any kids in the wedding tho) so figured it was fair enough.

I think it's something people should clarify before agreeing to be in a bridal party.
I was asked to be a bridesmaid and our budget didn't exactly allow for paying towards someone else's wedding, so I made sure l knew exactly what I was up for before I accepted.

I'm paying for a suit for DS for a wedding later this year as he is page boy but the suit the bride has gotten is about 4 sizes too big (no joke.. She thinks it will be fine ) so I said don't worry about ill buy one. Not overly impressed but otherwise she wanted me to try and get it tailored to fit him, which would be insane.
I've paid for my dress as bridesmaid and I have to pay for shoes and jewellery (do not get me started on the jewellery ) I didn't actually get asked but as she's my bestie I think she knew I wouldn't say no, just thought she would be a bit more considerate with how much she wants me to spend.

I had my cousins as ring bearer and flower girl. My aunty paid for their outfits. I don't even recall it being discussed. In saying that though they live interstate and i had nothing to do with the actual outfit selection. All I said to my aunt was I would prefer ivory over white and that navy/midnight blue and silver were the other colours in our scheme. No idea how much the flower girl dress cost, but I know my cousin wore her wedding shoes until they were worn out haha. I paid for "hair and makeup" which I think was a total of about $50 for her. I was a junior bridesmaid in the same auntys wedding 15yrs earlier and my mum paid for my dress, shoes etc. I think it's just how we are though.

Bridal party outfits- who pays?
I think you are going to need to speak up. Perhaps along the lines of.. DD is so very excited to be part of your special day, however, I just don't have the resources to pay for the dress you want.
You could then either wait and see what the response is or say I can only afford X amount at the very most.
I'm assuming your XH is your DD's Dad, would he be willing to buy it for her?

I would've paid to have them at a wedding, but I also didn't have them. The only time I wouldn't have paid is if I didn't really care to have them but the parent(s) desperately wanted them to be in the wedding, so the only reason they were in it was to appease the parents. But then I'd probably let them choose the outfit (and thereby the budget) themselves.
