I'm in a bridal party and the bachelorette party is planned for one night in Atlantic City which is going to cost, for me, a significant amount of money. I kept asking to keep the cost down, as I am low on cash because I am only working part time and going to school. Besides the cost of everything needed for the wedding, dress, hair/makeup, shoes,etc, the bachelorette party is putting the cost over the top for me. I am considering backing out of the bachelorette party because of the cost. Is that wrong? I would love to go and if I have the money I would be more than gracious to share in this party but unfortunately I don't. How do I break it to the bride and the rest of the bachelorette party that the cost is too much for me to afford and I will have to back out? I am also afraid that some other girls who are invited to the bachelorette party may not be able to afford to go and back out if they need to put up the cost of my share. I would be wiling to donate some money towards the room and dinner to help ease the cost for the other if I back out but I just cannot put myself into debt over this bachelorette party.
