Say it to them! It’s part of taking on the role. If they can’t pitch in, they should bow out.

I wouldn’t spend $40 on drinks either, regardless if she bought my dress or not. I know you want to do something nice for the bride, but you have to plan within their means. Ask everyone their budget and go from there. I felt awful for my bridesmaids spending $50 on my bachelorette, and you can have fun for less. If you want to go above and beyond, get her a gift or something special for the party, but unfortunately you cant’ force them to spend more than they want.

Say it! I would. They are being extremely ungrateful.

I’d say something. $40 isn’t much to expect someone to pay for a bachelorette, and like you said, they’re all working. They haven’t had to put it anything for this weeding yet, and I think that agreeing to participate should involve a tacit agreement to contribute a reasonable amount.


I agree with the prior poster as well though…have you asked them what they WOULD be willing to spend?

What other costs will they incur the night of the party? Is it JUST drinks or will there be more? Transportation, clothing, accessories, etc. Are the drinks something they wanted to do or was it a one-person decision?
