ONE bridesmaid is rethinking her commitment to a wedding reception after bachelor’s weekend costs three months’ rent.
The woman who wrote in a column “Dear Abby” expressed her concern at the rising costs of attending bachelor parties.
The writer who signed her alphabet “Anxious Attendant,” says that while she wants to support the bride, her anxiety is growing when thinking about the costs associated with the bachelor’s reception weekend.
In this case, the wedding weekend party cost $2,500 — three months of bridesmaids’ rent.
Meanwhile, the bridesmaid is looking to buy a home of her own, and the cost of a weekend getaway is hindering her ability.
She felt as though she was “invited” to spend a significant portion “of her savings on attending the bachelor party.
And while she’s excited that her friends are moving on to the next chapter in their lives, she believes pre-wedding parties are “getting increasingly lavish and expensive,” according to The Mercury News.
But is bachelorette the right answer?
According to Abby, it’s not too late for the bridesmaids to tell the bride their concerns.
However, this could have been (and probably should) have been made before the bridesmaids accepted the invitation to join the wedding reception.
In any case, it’s best to talk to the bride about cost concerns.
According to Abby, the weekend and the bachelor’s wedding don’t always go hand in hand.
Voicing concerns about the cost can lead to exclusion from a wedding reception, which is a fate any bridesmaid must be willing to accept.
But sometimes going to a wedding and standing by the bride’s side on her special day is enough.
