So I am a bride to be and so is one of my bridesmaids as well. As her wedding approches (Oct 11) she is become more of a bridezilla and some of her demands are becoming to much.
She is having a destination wedding in Clearwater Beach, Fl on Oct 11. She already has made the demands that we stay at the same place she is which is somewhat expensive and also requires a week stay in order to book which we have to pay for ourselves. She also wanted us all to get the same dress and the dress she picked was about $250. On top of that now she is requiring us to go to this place down there that does hair and make up and it's literally almost over $100 for that which is a estimate depending on hair length...which is mine is some what long so the lady said mine might be about $125 (once again...pay for ourselves)
After having to pay for all of this she made a comment and worded it as "I would like to treat you ladies to a spa day when we are down there one day! It's a bridal party package and I feel you ladies deserve it". Now maybe it is just me and the other bridesmaids but when you hear this it makes it sound like she is paying for this "spa day". After we all agreed to it after reading the text we recieved we come find out that this package is almost $250 per girl since it includes mani, pedi, massage, facials, and eyebrow and brazilian wax. When another bridesmaid decided to say thank you for getting us that package since it was very expensive...she looked at her with a confused look and said "what are you talking about...you all are on your own for paying for your alls. I am just paying for mine." Word travels fast and soon after this comment was made...we all back out of the spa thing. Bride threw a fit and said either we go to this spa day or we are out of the wedding....
I am also a bride to be and moving out in a month. It has been everything to be able to get the money to pay this far. I had some money saved up on the side because I am using this as my vacation for this year but that $250 pretty much takes away a good amount of it. I do not know really what to do at the point. I do not want to lose a friend over this but I can not go broke over someone elses wedding when I am still trying to save up for a good portion of mine. Am I the one being unreasonable in this or no? Any advice helps as well.
