Wow...just wow...I mean, I understand that there are certain costs that a WP can expect to take on...such as their dress, shoes, hair, ect...but I wouldn't dare ask my WP to pay me to stay on location after telling them they could... I mean, I rented a cabin for my WP, mom, aunt, cousin and photographer to stay in...I would never ask them to pay for it!
Kudos for standing your ground. You sound like you made very valid points and sounds like she was hoping that maybe you and the WP wouldn't notice that you'd all be paying for their honeymoon. They dug themselves into a hole by stretching themselves beyond their abilities. She has no right to think that you and the others would bail her out. I commend you.

I think you can now handle this in two ways:1) High road: Wait until after labor day weekend and then call her. Tell her that you would love to put this situation behind you because she is such a good friend and you want her wedding to be fantastic. Say this in a face to face or phone conversation - no text. Let her know how you feel about things but that you understand that everyone gets stressed as they get close to the wedding and you do just want this to be a bump in the road.OR2) Plan a great vacation and tell your friend that you wore your BM dress swimming.
