@worriedconfusedbride:  Your bridesmaids are being bitchy, honestly.  You should have the bachelorette party YOU want.  Their $200 isn’t an admission fee, and if they felt it was too much to ask of them, they should have said so, and asked you to pick out a cheaper dress, or declined to be bridesmaids.  You would NOT be a bridezilla to make them have a nice, relaxing evening in with you as your bachelorette.  To avoid conflict, maybe you can suggest you all get together for a Hallowe’en party with a limo and strippers.  Don’t let them make you have a party you’re not interested in.

Sounds like maybe one groomsman can’t afford his tuxedo rental. Get your FI to just ask him if it’s a problem.  Maybe he has a black suit and he can wear that, and you can cancel his.  Maybe you can ask someone for help with the money to loan it to him.  Maybe he’s just being a dick, and the groom should tell him “either you’re in the wedding, and putting in that rental payment tomorrow, or you’re not going to do it, and you’re out of the wedding.  It isn’t personal.  I don’t hate you, or think you’re a bad guy.  There’s just not enough time left for me to be tactful about this.”

Honestly we came in 2 or 3 weeks before our wedding and got the last of the men together to get fitted. Where are you getting your tuxes from. We got ours from Mens Warehouse. They arrived on Tues before the wedding (wedding was on a Sat).

@worriedconfusedbride:  Maybe you should pay for one, inexpensive spa treatment, and let them buy others if they want. Like pay for a manicure, if you cam afford the $200.
