I would advise you to go if it was going to be local. But considering the distance, money and the no guarantee for a good time I don’t think you should.
Maybe the three of you could grab drinks or something together sometime after, cause it really feels like your waiting for them to ask you to join in on their fun. So perhaps its time for you to take the initiative, and see how things go from there?

i understand how you feel about the being left out thing. i used to always feel that with a group of girls i used to work with. and crazy as it was, i kept going to their “girls nights” then going home feeling crappy. but somehow that made me want to keep going and try harder to fit in. i FINALLY had an epiphany that i just don’t click with these girls and that was okay! and so i stopped wasting my time and money on outings that didn’t make me feel good. my advice to you is the same – don;t spend so much money and time on something that will leave you feeling crappy. you can probably have a MUCH better time with some other friends without driving 7 hours or spending a 1/4 of the money. its an easy solution!

I wouldn’t go either. She’s asking you to drive a long distance, shell out some serious cash, an pretend to be best friends so she can feel like she has lots of “close” friends to pal around with before she gets married. it’s ridiculous! Let her other friend go. You should stay home and spend your money on something that will make you feel good (and included!).
