How Much Does it ACTUALLY Cost to Be Maid of Honor?

Being asked to hold the coveted Maid of Honor title by your bestie is a huge honor. But let’s admit it: It’s also NOT cheap. While giving a speech is stressful enough, you can also plan on thousands of dollars over the next year as the “chosen one.” Here’s a breakdown of the costs you can expect when you consider activities such as the wedding shower, bachelorette party, ceremony, reception, and of course the wedding gifts.

Travel: $1130
Clothes and Accessories: $500
Gifts: $200

And to make it all sting just a little bit more, it turns out the average Best Man ends up paying $1,307 vs. $2,062 for the Maid of Honor. Sigh.

Hey, we’re not complaining (well, maybe we are…just a little). We still wouldn’t change it for the world. But we do wish it was a tad bit cheaper. 🙁
