My best friend is getting married in June in another province and I have just found out that I am not going to be able to take the time off that I need in order to make it there for the week. I just started a new job and I am not intitled to that amount of vacation time. In addition, I am in the middle of a move and will be living on my own and paying all the bills. In order to be in the wedding, I will have to buy my own dress, shoes, flight, hotel, gift, bachelorette party things. It seems that all these things keep adding up and I just don’t have the money to cover everything. I talked to her yesterday and told her about not being able to get the time off. Obviously, I feel bad and would love to be able to. This woman will not take no for an answer though, and has decided that I still need to get my dress, in case we can find a cheap flight. I feel like I am being forced into this, when I just can’t afford it. How can I get this accross to her without hurting her feelings and still remaining honest and true to my feelings that as much as I would love to see her on her special day, I just can’t make this work. PLEASE HELP ME!!
