I don’t think you are being unreasonable at all! Could you guys just do something extra in your hometown?  Go out the night before? If Chicago isn’t to expensive for everyone I would say do that if your Bridesmaid or Best Man wants to do something special and seperate.  Your Bridesmaid or Best Man shouldn’t be planning a party that they can’t afford and shouldn’t ask you to foot the bill for it!

You are not in the wrong. I’ve never heard of a bride being responsible for bridesmaids’ travel costs. That’s ridiculous. I’m a believer that airfare should be covered by each individual traveler. It’s completely unfair to expect you to cover those costs.

That seems strange to me. I wouldn’t want to pay for people to travel to me, especially if I was planning to travel to them. Why does she want them all to come to you? Is Chicago not an option for some reason?

No, you are not being unreasonable.  I think that is rude of her to ask that and doesn’t make sence logistcs wise.  If all of them are pretty close why have them come there when you can just go there?

I would be pretty bothered being like “You’re throwing a celebration for me! Great! I can spend up to $300 to see all my friends. Oh, wait, I’m FUNDING the party you’re throwing me?”


Nu-uh. You’re right here.

The bachelorette is meant to be in your honor, thrown for you, so asking you to contribute to other peoples’ travel is totally unreasonable.
