I think you should talk to her about what you can realistically give her with regards to budget and time. She may have gotten swept up in wedding-land and has just forgotten what it feels like to be out that much money when it isn’t your event. Gently bring her back to reality – I wouldn’t be comfortable spending that much money – no matter who the friend was!

Hi Farrahfay,

I totally agree with Crayfish – please take a moment to write down what she has asked and let her review her list of demands and ASK HER if she remembers that you wanted to help out, not take the brunt of it. I think it’s not a ‘job’ for just one person. Please tell her you are going to need help, and need a realistic budget.

Already, 3,700$ is alot!!!!!! and you’re not even her sister.

Tell the other girls that you need money before you buy/do anything. If theres no money from anyone, then go to a dollar store for decorations and buy a box of saltine crackers. Drastic but you know what, i’d be pissed off if i were you. As for a charter, that is alot of money! ask her to chip in if that’s what she wants to do. Just because that’s what she WANTS to do, doesn’t mean that is what you have to do.

I don’t think you’re being unreasonble at all. I agree with Crayfish, she needs to be brought back to reality.

You have already spent a lot of money to go to her wedding, it’s a bit unreasonable to ask you to shell out more for a stagette.

I’m actually going through something similar with a friend that is doing a DW. I personally think that it’s way too much to expect of your guests to attend all of the pre-wedding events and contribute to that (Shower gift, bachelorette/stagette) and then also pay for the trip itself.

Just talk to her about it and set boundaries on how much you are willing to spend
