I was listening to one of my friends talk at dinner tonight about how their friend is being too demanding of a bride, getting to the point they were not excited about the wedding and really considering keeping the friendship after the wedding. Apparently, they are traveling out of state to a pretty expensive destination for the wedding, and the bride picked out an expensive dress, is expeting them to get their hair and makeup done without paying for it, and expecting a destination bachelorette, and upscale shower at a country club (sound like it is against all of the etiquette on this board). Most of the guests were local and rich so no one really said anything about stopping these plans.
She said to hit the brides expectation she would have to spend 3K on the wedding and sacrafice vacations as well as other things. She has a talk with the bride about expenses and apprarently she didnt sympathasize and rolled her eyes stating she had the money to take vacations in the last year and had a good job. She also did not think 3K dollars was a lot to spend for someone in the wedding party.
I know this is an extreme case, but I am curious if there was anyone out there that ended up hating being a bridesmaid for someone like this and wanted to share stories. Does this happen this much in real life?
