I would be upfront about this with her. Tell her the truth: your funds will be low, maybe too low, to contribute what is needed to be her bridesmaid. Maybe she has minimal expenses in mind? Since it’s so soon and after she’s put money into being your Bridesmaid or Best Man, maybe she’s going a more economical route.

Anyway, be honest. There’s no point in fretting if you don’t know the plan and if she doesn’t know your concern.

I know it seems overwhelming now, but this is a happy time for the two of you! I’m sure you’ll find a way to work it out and be able to be in each others’ weddings! I had 7 weddings the same year as ours. One was my BFF’s wedding 2 weeks before mine and the other was my old roommate’s wedding that was 3 weeks later. Enjoy planning together, and just give her a heads up that while you want to help as much as possible, it might be hard with your weddings so close to be as involved as she wants you to be…

I agree with PP. I would just talk to her. Chances are, she didn’t even think about the expenses and wanted to include you just as you have included her. Based on what I’ve seen on the Bee, I’m sure there would be ladies who would’ve been upset to not have been included even if it was 3 months after their wedding.
