wedding party

We can all admit we’ve daydreamed of being a bridesmaid one day.

Playing such a special part in your sister or best friend’s big day is the ultimate honour, however, it will set you back quite a lot of money.

Weddings are certainly a pricey affair, even for the regular guests. However, when it comes to the bridal party their big role in the wedding sees them spending an extortionate amount of money.

The Vow has conjured up just how much money the average bridesmaid is spending. Those of you with upcoming bridesmaids duties may want to close your eyes.

They revealed that the average bridesmaid spends a whopping €500.

24 percent of women involved in their study said they spend €500-€800, however, 17 percent admitted they have spent an eye-watering €1000 on the nuptials.

Others (8 percent) even admitted to spending over €1500 on their friend or family member’s big day. Ouch!

The bride and groom tend to look after the bridesmaid's outfit and all things beauty, but what’s really costing bridesmaids a small fortune is the little things.

Things like decorations for hen parties, alcohol, and engagement gifts are costing a pretty penny.

Being a bridesmaid may be a huge honour but you’d certainly want to start saving straight away if you’ve got a big wedding coming up.

It’ll cost a few bob, but there’s no doubt in our minds that it’ll be worth every penny.



A wedding in Sydney this weekend took a rather unexpected turn.

According to local station 9News a wedding guest, fuelled by alcohol and cannabis, tried to the wedding… but crashing into the bridal party. 

By all accounts, Tenille Eyles and Adam Bradley's nuptials started off beautifully at Camden's Harrington Grove Country Club in Sydney. 

However, over the course of the ceremony a fight broke out between some of the wedding guests. 

Warren Donovan, the wedding photographer on duty at the time, said that at first and amid the confusion, most of the other attendees were confused as to what was going on – hence Warren continued shooting photographs. 

He explained, however, that suddenly he spotted someone driving at high speed in a car towards the crowd. 

After reaching the first gathering, the individual in question next reversed into a second crowd of wedding-goers – despite serveral attempts to take the keys from the ignition. 

"When he took off the second time that's when he came straight towards us and we jumped out of the way," Warren also told 9News. 

Australian police said afterwards that the suspect is a 55-year-old man who was the new partner of a relative. Following his arrest, the man was charged with drink and dangerous driving, as well as possession of cannabis. 

He is due in court on September 29. 

Thankfully, no one was injured in the incident.
