Hey girls. I want a $10,000 dream bag. Care to pitch in?

Asking for some time commitments is reasonable… But exploiting her friends like that? What?

Sukii:  holy hell. i could never in good conscience ask anyone to buy a $550 dress. and theeeennnn to add insult to injury, ask them to pay for 87 other things including HER bridal gown. GTFO. no. just no. 

i would have told this girl to help her self off the nearest cliff a longggg time ago. 

when i was 22ish i in a wedding where i got suckered into paying nearly full price for a hair and makeup trial and then pay for it again on the day of the wedding. it was not my wedding. i was not the Maid/Matron of Honor. i am no longer even friends with the bride. i learned from that mistake real quick.

nightborn:  This is exactly what this girl needs. I’m puzzled she’s surrounded by so many people catering to her outrageous demands. Literally just about everyone close to me would be giving me the ‘girl you be tripping, GTF over yourself’ sit-down convo. I don’t understand people going along wtih her….

scissorgirl:  Have you read some of the bridezilla posts on the bee? I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the girls here read that article and then said ‘This is what bridesmaids are supposed to do for me!!!’.

LOL Right. Wouldn’t be surpised at all. Because after all the Bridesmaid or Best Man are there to suppor the Bride in all her foolish desirers, cause showing up and just wearing the dress aren’t enough. 

I’m not even reading the article because frankly, those Bridesmaid or Best Man should have been checked her entitled ass. It’s not he brides fault its their for even indulging and iota of this crap.

Went to dinner with a group including my BFF and a new BF of hers. There was 8 of us. We were waiting for the bill to come, and I went to the bathroom, when I got back to the table everyone was leaving, I assumed DH paid our bill. When we got in the car he said he asked the server and was told it was taken care of.

The next day BFF called me at work  and said the server forgot to bring the bill, and everyone had left so her BF paid it (he’s an established Dr so not poor) and our share was $250. 

I said WTF $250? DH had steak was $32, I had salmon was $28, he had a beer $5 and I had an iced tea $2.  With tax and 25% tip was $90. She said, was $800, so we split it equal 8 ways and the wine was $400, 2 bottles @ $200.  We didn’t have any wine, didn’t order wine.  Her BF ordered a bottle, our other friend who knows nothing about wine said to the server, oh that’s good, bring another bottle.  Plus that same friend, BFF added in the extra $50 to chip in half of hers too, because she couldn’t afford it.  I was still laughing at her when I hung up the phone.

karen12: ‘s DH had asked the server about the bill prior to leaving and had been told it was already taken care of. Sounds like BFF let the server know ahead of time that the new BF/doctor would be taking care of the bill- and then used the opportunity to try and fleece extra money out of the others when approaching them for ‘their share’.

When someone asks me to pay for their wedding gown because it was out of her budget, is when I back out of the bridal party. No way!

Not worth contributing any more to the wedding of a so-called friend whose marriage seems likely to end in divorce. Wonder how long her husband will put up with that kind of demanding crap? Doubt she’s treating him much better than the people she considers BFFs.

Just sent this to my BMs – thanks for the laugh! Haha

No way would I EVER ask them to chip in! Actually, $10,500 for a dress?! My God woman, you could use that as a downpayment on a house. The mind boggles.

I guess that because I’m from the UK I’m not used to the BMs paying for much. I’m paying for their dresses, alterations, shoes and hair.

The only thing I have asked them to do is to arrange my Hen Do. I’ve told them I don’t want big or fancy or abroad. It’s totally up to them. 

If I was her Bridesmaid or Best Man, I’d have told her to research her own damn cake makers too, so I’d have probably been kicked out long before the Bride asked for contributions to the dress haha
