I am letting it go, I got my venting out!
Not intending to one up anyone, or to be passive aggressive. I love this girl dearly and we have a lot of history- which sometimes can make things a bit complicated.
I am not her and can’t say how she is feeling- everyone is allowed to handle situations differently. I’m the kind to suck it up unless something is really upsetting me, which is why I came here for an opinion. I very much appreciate her spending her money to be here for me and I’ve tried my best to make sure she knows that.

I am a Bridesmaid or Best Man for one of my closest friends soon, and I love her dearly but the finacial strain is real. I am currently in between jobs due to circumstances, and she chose an expensive venue which I need to fly to because it’s so remote and I will also need to fly to her Hen party. This doesn’t make me less committed as her Bridesmaid or Best Man, but I do think it should be acknowledged that weddings can be a significant financial committment for many of those involved.
I haven’t felt the need to say anyof this to her, but if she asked for any further financial committments from me I might have to say that it’s really hurting my already tight budget. I don’t think it was necesssarily 100% mean, it might be a politely worded request for respite (I couldn’t afford to pay for my own dress for example).
