I hear you. But I think it’s easy to get blinded by wedding planning (I know that’s all i talk about some days!). if they start getting weird about the topic, just straight out ask them what’s making them worry. Then you can say you don’t want them to pay, or address whatever’s making you feel weird. Sounds like just a small communication problem to me. Hope it works for you!!

@elliptical2013:  I’m kinda confused…are you talking about taking them for mani/pedi’s this weekend while you’re in SD? Or for your wedding?  If I was your friends I wouldn’t have any problems having you stay with me if you were in town visiting.  I would do that for any of my friends (especially my BM’s) in a heartbeat! If you don’t feel comfortable asking them maybe you could put a feeler out?  Mention that you thought about staying an extra day but you didn’t book the hotel for the last night? LOL As far as the comments about not having money, one of my BM’s is doing the same thing too.  We’re paying for both of her boys to be in the wedding) and FI is going to take his free Tux and give it to her husband, so all she has to pay for is her BM’s dress…but she still complains.  Unfortunately, there isn’t much you can do about it….I just kinda roll my eyes (in private, not in front of her LOL) and know that while it can be kind of annoying, its not worth stressing over.  I found a very affordable dress and she’s known which dress and the price ($150) for a year to save up for it. We all struggle with money and I get that…been there done that…i think some people just handle it differently. LOL

I’m sensing that you might be assuming they’re thinking things that they aren’t necessarily thinking. You could have a “team huddle” and tell them the game plan so that you don’t feel like they’re surprised every time you say something to them or ask them to do something… You know what I’m saying?

I’m a little confused by your post but it sounds like you want to treat them but it would mean every one planning to come to the wedding 2 days sooner. Right? My suggestion is to either treat them the morning of or call a locate place by them and have a gift certificate set up for them to go to before the wedding.
