Is she having money problems? Otherwise, $15 is extremely cheap!

That amount of $ is totally acceptable. Can you have your MOH handle it so you don’t have to be bothered with that bridesmaid?

If not, how important is it to you that she shows? If it’s important to you, and if that amount of money is seriously a problem for her – I would offer to pay for her meal. If she’s still resisting after $ is out of the equation, she’s being a jerk and you can either find out why or ignore it.

Whoa that’s really cheap. Could there be something else going on with her?

@MeantToBee1019:  Sounds like she’s just not happy about participating in any of the wedding things. Where on earth are you having dinner for $5? I don’t go out on a Wednesday without dropping $20.

I’ve been in situations myself where any amount of money was too much for me to spend. It could be a simple problem with her budget…or this could be the beginning of her balking at everything that comes her way involving the wedding. Is she sure she wants to be a bridesmaid?

$15 is so cheap as to be almost inconsequential. In fact, I wouldn’t have thought it possible to have an evening out for such a small amount of money so no, you aren’t placing too great a burden on her. Instead, it sounds as if you have a thoroughly awkward individual who is determined to put a spanner in the works wherever and whenever possible.

I think that sounds more that reasonable!  All of the bachelorette parties I’ve been to costing $250+ (weekend trips)

$15  is super cheap, even if she’s having financial troubles. A bachelorette isn’t going to be free, ever, even just everyone pitching in for take out and watching movies will cost around $15 each. She’s being a brat.

@MeantToBee1019:  That is VERY inexpensive.  Ignore her, especially since you aren’t getting resistence from others.

I am genuinely flabbergasted that she thinks $15 is too much. Even when you have no money at all, it’s pretty obvious that $15 is about as cheap as a bachelorette is ever going to come. You’re arranging it and it’s your party, so do what you want. There’s not much point trying to accomodate someone who seems being intent on being difficult! (If you’re very keen on including her then maybe offer to pay for her meal? She doesn’t sound like a barrel of laughs though).

My friend wants a bachelorette which is closer to $1500 than $15 – I WISH hers was as good value as yours!
