- Wedding: September 2013
I am 28 years old. I have no desire to get drunk every weekend and stay out until 4am. In fact, even when I was 20-22 (my brief “party” phase), I might have gotten drunk every so often, but I was never a big, huge partier.
But now that I’m getting married, my friends and BMs are planning this typical, ridiculous, drunk-fest bachlorette party. And even my most sensitive friends, who usually are very in tune with my personality, insist that I HAVE to get trashed.
NO!!!!!! It’s really pissing me off!!!
And then ….. me and my fiance are friends with a couple who are getting married in Vegas next weekend.
They make a lot of money and love going to the casino, going to bars, strip clubs, staying out til the sun comes up, etc. But we aren’t.
But they invited us to their combo bachelor/bachlorette party tonight, which is great.
I got a text from the girl saying: “We are going to dinner and then the strip club Saturday night. I know the strip club is not your thing, buy you and J are welcome to come.”
I replied back: “Well, we prob won’t go to the strip club but dinner sounds good.”
She replied back with a smiley face.
Great, compromise, right?
NO! We hung out last night and her and her fiance (and another friend that was there) were pushing us SO much to go to the damn strip club! And THEN they say, “oh, we’re all splitting a limo to and from. It’ll only be about $50 per person.”
My fiance and I are getting in married in less than 6 months. We are closing on our house NEXT WEEK. We do NOT have money for this shit and we aren’t interested in it!!!
Plus, I have to get up early Sunday morning to help my mom (she has health problems), then I am meeting my BMs for lunch to discuss wedding and shower plans.
We tried explaining to everyone that we aren’t interested, we don’t have the time or money …. and they jumped down our throats.
I thought friends were supposed to be unconditional.
Why don’t these people understand?!?!?!?!
