Groomsmen Spend More Than Bridesmaids
Sorry Groomsmen! According to a survey by GOBankingRates.com, on average, groomsmen spend more than bridesmaids on every expense category incurred as a wedding party member. Those categories are wedding day attire, bachelor/bachelorette party, wedding gifts, and other wedding-related incidentals. (Read our breakdown of wedding party costs.)
Good news though for groomsmen is that they're less likely to go over budget. So, gents, either we're setting the budget bar way too high or we're just that disciplined and dedicated to staying within budget. It's the latter, right?
