- Wedding: April 2013
So my DH and I have been invited to our friends hen and stag partys. They came to ours but we arent close with them and we dont see them very often. They live two hours away. There plans are to come to our town and the hens party have a van and the stag party have a van too. Then we are doing a pub crawl back to their town, were the girls are doing pole dancing and Im not sure what else. The boys are doing go carting, paintballing, shotting, golfing, dinner, casino, and strip clubs etc. We have been told that it will cost my DH roughly between $600-$1000. I am waiting to hear how much they think it will cost me. Anyway here is our deliema, we actully dont have that type of money, we wouldnt even be able to afford my husband to go, let alone me too. Also im 11weeks pregnant, and have been quite sick, the smell of beer make me want to throw up, I will be 14weeks when the partys are on. So far my morning sickness isnt letting up. So we have talked about it and have decided we really cant afford to go, or get ourselfs into debt to go. We will still go to their wedding. How should we tell them we cant go, without sounding like we are poor or using my pregnancy as an excuse?
