I agree with Miss Manner’s response. That couple needed to grow a pair and say as much when the other couple supposedly told them they’d end the friendship if they didn’t go.

@Oneeleven: Totally agree. 

Who lets themselves be pressured into spending money they don’t want to spend?? If they were my guests I would not have pressured them in the first place but I also would not be refunding them.

I agree with Miss Manners. This couple should have stood their ground and not booked a vacation they did not want to take. If I was the bride I would not be reimbursing my guests, but I also would not have pressured them to go in the first place.

I have a hard time believing grown adults allowed themselves to be pressured into this, let alone not understand the terms of their trip insurance.

If I were the bride and in my 20’s, I probably would never even think of reimbursing the guests and would find them rude for even asking it or expecting it. As the parents of the bride ,tho, I would think they may try to offer something to their good friends.

i dont understand how the couple “attempted polite refusals” but failed?

I would have reimbursed either way. 

However, I say no to DW’s all the time. Grow a pair and say no.
