- Wedding: November 2019 - Canada
I think you need to ask yourself a couple questions: 1. Do you WANT to go? 2. Will you be spending money that SHOULD be going somewhere else and will have to compromise because of it?
I personally wouldnt go because of all the reasons you stated and if your friend loves & respects you, she’ll understand. It sounds like you have an incredibly exciting year coming up!! Congratulations!

You don’t owe her a justification or an excuse.
If someone decides to have an expensive bachelorette party (whether destination or luxurious), they are assuming the risks that not all invitees will be able to attend.

Um, $400 – $500 IS a lot of money, it’s a week’s wages (or more) for a lot of people. Don’t let anyone push you into going with the “it’s not all that much” line!

I agree with PPs. Be aware there may be fallout but you shouldn’t have to explain your financial situation to anyone. Especially a friend. A destination bach is asking a lot from the guests. If it was a local party you would most likely attend. See if you can take her out to lunch or for drinks after the bach to hear all about it.
