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.

Diamonds are a girl's best friend, right? Traditionally, most women go for a gold ring with a clear white diamond setting as an engagement ring.

But things have changed – women want a ring that reflects their style and personality. Listen, if it's going to sparkle on your finger for life, it better suit you

One trend that looks like it is here to stay is the coloured rocks; and we are HERE for it! 

Coloured engagement rings are perfect for the quirky bride who wants to give her rock an edge, and make the diamond (or emerald) pop.

It's a edgier alternative to more traditional white diamonds, and it's so different, which we really love.

We decided to do a bit of a round up of our favourite coloured engagement rings, direct from social media (of course).

1. Serious mermaid vibes here. 

I would literally DIE if someone gave me this, but with a sapphire in the middle instead. LOVE LOVE LOVE it.

2. Nothing beats a yellow diamond. 

3. Our inner goth is in LOVE.

4. What girl doesn't love some pink?

You're going to be popping champagne on your wedding day, so consider a champagne colored stone for your engagement ring! It'll be a constant reminder that every day with your true love is something worth celebrating!

5. We're green with envy.

"27th of November 2017, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced the news of their engagement, later becoming Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex! They have since celebrated their wedding anniversary and welcomed their son, Archie, into the world.”

The parents are set to head to the USA for their first Thanksgiving as a family-of-three. It is believed they’ll celebrate the holidays with Meghan’s mum Doria.

They will not be spending this Christmas with the Royal Family at Sandringham. Earlier this month, royal officials revealed they will be spending the holidays with Doria.

There’s no doubt Harry and Meghan are looking forward to their first Christmas with little Archie.

And it’ll be extra special as they head back to Meghan’s home for the festivities.

Sophie Turner has given fans a much-coveted glimpse at her stunning wedding ring after completing her second marriage ceremony with Joe Jonas last weekend.

The Game of Thrones actress and Jonas Brother wed in France alongside their family and friends at the beautiful Chateau de Tourreau, and her Louis Vuitton wedding dress had everyone gasping.

The wedding featured her BFF Maisie Williams and their dog Porky Basquiat as a groomsman, of course.

While congratulating the USA women's soccer team on their World Cup win against England, Sophie flashed us the stunner of a ring;

Earlier in May, #Jophie decided to have a Las Vegas wedding in order to make things official in America before jetting off for their traditional French wedding.

Sophie's Instagram story was posted yesterday during her honeymoon, and the ring is absolutely covered in diamonds along the wedding band. We're not jealous…not at all..

The actress praised Alex Morgan in particular for her goal celebrations (that tea sip is divine), but everyone was distracted by the rock on her finger.

Joe proposed to Sophie back in 2017, and we've been waiting to see the added wedding band ever since. 

Her wedding ring is a little more simple than the jewelled engagement rock: the thin band is laced with sparkling diamonds, matching the stone on her initial ring.

You may remember that the pair swapped ring pops at their Las Vegas wedding, so the new jewels are a definite step up for the happy couple.

Fans have seen some special paparazzi pictures taking from outside the French location, such as the iconic Jonas Brothers' balcony photoshoot and their dog Porky Basquiat wearing a tux.
