I don’t understand why people get so bent out of shape when they owe money. I can see being unhappy with the cost of a hotel (because they are pricey…) but when it comes time to pay, suck it up!

People get really weird about money.  My husband and I have been planning bachelor and bachelorette parties for the same couple, and I’ve been super-surprised about how whiny people are about what we consider to be a reasonable cost.  For the bachelor party, the guys have to chip in $100/pp for an entire house for a weekend, BYOB, and groceries.  And still people have complained.  WTF.

Unfortunately, I don’t think your situation is that uncommon.  I feel sorry for you and for your friend who paid.  I think people feel pressured to agree to things they can’t really afford. 

I went to a bachelorette party recently that was $250/pp.  Even though everyone was fully aware of this ahead of time, there was a huge fight over money in the limo, that literally carried into the street and the bride was crying.  It was awful.

That’s annoying. It sounds like you just have to support the girl who planned/paid upfront for everything and ignore the other girls’ bad behavior. If you got involved it would only escalate the situation.

Ugh.  I hate it when people complain about money.  I know when I plan my BFF’s bachelorette, etc, I’ll make a big spreadsheet labeling how much money for what, and attach PDF’s of the hotel price etc, so that everything is transparent.  And they HAVE to before we go, or they aren’t going.  I will do paypal!  🙂
