Wow… I would have a big “WTF” stamped on my forehead if I was in your position.  Sounds like this girl has some other issues going on.  The notion of a “favor” is that there’s no price tag attached, monetary or otherwise.  My mom’s a flight attendant, so I know there’s no extra burden in transporting items.  Where does she get $45 worth of effort from?  Yikes!  I’m sorry you’re having to deal with this so close to the wedding!

That’s really frustrating, I just don’t understand how some people act like that…especially since generally bridesmaids are your closest friends/family members. I’m really sorry you’re having to deal with this, I’m not sure what to tell you though. I think I would probably blow up & not even want her in my wedding anymore…but then again, I tend to be a little too hot-headed. :/

WOW!!!! That is beyond ridiculous. Seriously, I would just tell her straight up how crazy she’s being – but that’s just me. ugh!

Wow, that is bad! Not sure what to tell you…what is the $89 for? I don’t know if it’s grounds for asking her to step down but she does appear to be quite the money grubber.

I’m curious- how did she ask your MOH for money? Did she try to charge her what the mailing cost would have been? Or did she ask her for $45? What did your Maid/Matron of Honor say?

Sorry…but she wouldn’t get one dime from me AND she would pay for her dress. I would just politely explain to her that she offered to deliver the dress and you would have shipped it with no problem so you don’t feel you owe her anything…especially not half the cost of her Bridesmaid or Best Man dress. Her reaction will probably let you know if you should drop her from your wedding party or not.

@JamaicaBride: I totally agree. If you take that approach, she’ll either keep trying to get around it, or she suck it up, pay you for the dress and drop the “fee”.

What a nut!
