I get that it’s upsetting to hear this about your close friend, but you did nothing wrong here. Ultimately, this is her fault. I think at this point you have done everything you can, maybe you can offer to give her a ride to the doctors or something but as her friend. Ultimately, not your responsibility, don’t feel so guilty!

This is going to sound harsh but this is why folks need health insurance. Accidents happen. Medical expenses aren’t usually plan-ahead scenarios. 

I think some flowers are fine but her drunk antics are not your fault or your problem (again, I know that sounds harsh). 

Just be the good friend that you are and reach out to see how she is.

HOW did she fall?

if she slipped on something or tripped on uneven flooring etc… then it should be covered by insurance (either your wedding insurance or the venues) its unfair to just automatically assume she was drunk without trying to find out the true cause – I know a few people (myself included) who have slipped down stairs at an old night club we use to drink at, nothing to do with being drunk but a result of the floor always being wet from people spilling their beers as the go up and down the stairs and thats the venues responsability

what gets me is she drove HERSELF 7 hours home with a broken wrist? and im hazarding an educated guess that she was on painkillers too for a 3 place break… someone should of drove her


this is another reason america needs to get with the times and have universal health care system anyway, no one should ever worry the cant afford nessacery medical treatment

Our venue recommends that we purchase liquor liability insurance that can usually be added under most home insurance policies. They made it clear that the venue and caterer are ONLY covered under their policy and that me and my Fiance would have to get our own. Double check with the venue. I know she is your friend, but I have heard of friends taking friends to court over things like this before unfortunately. 🙁
