Hi there all! I am currently a bridesmaid in one of my best friends weddings happening in August. I am feeling very overwhelmed and stressed out and I'll tell you why.
The B&G are doing a Buck and Doe - for those of you who don't know, it's a big party to fundraise for your wedding. I have no problem helping out in this. EXCEPT they are expecting the wedding party pays for everything; alcohol, hall rental, food, games, prizes etc. I had no idea I had to financially contribute in this manner. I told the bride my concerns and she just keeps saying everything will be fine, there are lots of girls and groomsmen to help out, but I'm not kidding - I am paying to go back to school next year and can't afford to pay for this thing. Dress, shoes, bachelorette party - all things I knew I was paying for. No problem. But I'm sorry..they want to spend $2000 on alcohol, I don't have that kind of money.
I have tried to voice my concerns but now she seems to be ignoring me. I feel so anxious and awful, because she is one of my best friends. My boyfriend is also close with the groom.
What do I do? I've already told her how I felt..
