You should ask her face to face. That way she can’t avoid you.

I’d be pretty pissed that she stiffed me. I probably wouldn’t ask again, but I’d not be friends with the person anymore.

 

But I’m bitter. I had a “friend” get drunk and order food and drinks and drinks for OTHER people..then leave me with the bill. She apologized later but didn’t offer to pay me back. We’re talking a few hundred dollars in a bar bill.

I never spoke to her again.

do you know anything about her financial situation?  How much money is it?

@bridetobe85:  Sadly some people have gone through life getting to have everything they want and someone always picks up the tab. Good for you for standing up for yourself. I don’t regret my decision either.

I think the money and friendship are lost causes.  Even if you asked her in person, she’d probably make a run for the hills or make a scene, and that would make your wedding akward. 

 

Moving forward, I’d be cautious of other friends.  You know the saying, “When someone shows you their true colors, believe them the first time.”

@irishphoenix:  I hate people like that. That’s why I always pay for my tab and close it right away instead of leaving it open. God knows who else is going to add stuff to your tab 🙁

@bridetobe85:  this may seem a little assertive, but do you have anyone in your family that is very strong willed and unafraid of confrontation? If she shows up to your wedding I would honestly just have an “enforcer” (lol) get the money from her, and not take “no” for an answer. What have you got to lose? The polite way of collecting your money doesn’t seem to phase her.

@bridetobe85:  Well, if it were me I would tell her once more what was owed (if you’ve only mentioned it once since the party) and then let it go. Her knowing she owes you money, she probably won’t attend your wedding anyway, I know I wouldn’t!
