susieq21:  That’s cool. I agree with PP that you should talk to the bride and Maid/Matron of Honor about what you can afford and go from there!

Monikax3x3: personally, i think that $450.00 for a bridal shower is more than enough.

edited to clarify, if necessary: $450 total. per bridesmaid is crazy talk.

And you’re friends with this extremely entitled Wanna-Be-A-Kardashian bride why? She sounds utterly selfish and all about her, even to the detriment of those around her.

gingerkitten:  Gotcha.  Every shower I’ve been to has been a luncheon sort of thing, so I never thought of anything different.

OMG, $450 is absurd! No, you are not crazy for not wanting to pay that. The bride needs a reality check. What really gets me with all these shower posts are brides who “demand” things.  A shower is given to the bride to honor her. Idk, at my wedding, I didn’t even assume that I was going to have a shower, and didn’t ask for one, but my bridesmaids offered to throw it. They picked the venue and the menu. They asked for my input on the guest list and if I wanted games, but the rest was all them.

susieq21:  I have been to a BM/MOH 5 times and not once did I have to spend that much for each wedding for activities and other expenses together! What happened to the days when bridal shower was a low key lunch at someone’s house with finger foods, games, and opening some gifts? 

This is the price some of us pay for living in a time with Pinterest obsession, outdoing each other via social media, and emulating celebrity lives.

susieq21:  No, you are not crazy and by no means you are obligated to spend $450 for her shower. I am actually quite pissed for you.
