What does the maid of honor pay for?
The maid of honor, along with the rest of the bridal party, is expected to cover all wedding attire costs. This includes the dress (plus any necessary alterations), shoes, and any jewelry you’ll be wearing the day of. Occasionally, the bride will gift her bridesmaids with whatever accessories she wants them to wear.
Who typically pays for the honeymoon?
Traditionally, the groom and his family are responsible for financing the honeymoon, but these days — especially with people marrying later in life — the task often falls to the groom himself (or to the couple). Your friend may be able to contribute a portion of the trip, but she is in no way obligated to do so.

If the bride has a stepmother, she would be escorted to her seat by a groomsman before the mother of the bride; the bride’s mom should be the last person to be escorted down the aisle, just before the bridal party.
