Q: I'm getting married in Jamaica. Do I have to pick up the tab for my bridesmaids' airfares?

A: The good news: You're not obligated to foot the bill for any of their travel expenses. That includes plane tickets, car rentals, accommodations and any meals and activities that aren't included in the wedding festivities. But you should hook up your girls—and the other guests, for that matter—with a reasonably priced place to stay. Do some research, ask about group discounts, even look into renting a villa or two for the bridal party. Of course, if you have the funds to offset some of your bridesmaids' other expenses, there's no reason not to, and they'll love you even more for your thoughtfulness.
