The bride for the wedding I am a bridesmaid for suggested a trip for her bachelorette party. It is fairly expensive and while I can pay for myself paying for the bride is pretty impossible. There are only 2 bridesmaids in the wedding. So to pay for this trip, then a shower and for the actual wedding, it would be a lot of money. I was thinking of how I could make it work and when I mentioned to the bride about booking the trip she said to me, without me saying a word, that she would never let us pay her way, she would pay. Now we would pay for her drinks, dinner all that other stuff once we got there. But the actual lodging costs she is also going to split the cost with the rest of us.
I feel terrible about her paying. I mean if it were an overnight trip fairly local, I would gladly foot the bill.
Is it rude to let her pay for her lodging there?
