5. How can I save money without appearing cheap?

It's not easy, but there are some things you can do to try to minimize your expenses:
  1. Have the shower at someone's house and have everyone bring food rather than having it at a restaurant or having it catered.
  2. Make a creative gift instead of buying one (gift ideas).
  3. If you're travelling from out of town, drive rather than fly. If you have to rent a car, try to carpool with other bridesmaids.
  4. Try to stay with a friend or family member rather than pay for a hotel room.
  5. Share a hotel room with other bridesmaids.
  6. Give yourself a manicure instead of going to a salon.
