Money vent

So this past weekend was my Bach party and BM R drunkenly told me about another BM E's money woes in regards to my wedding. A little background: We were both in BM E's wedding this past August. And we spent a TON of $$$. I spent over $1K on her wedding and I got a coach clutch as a gift.


My wedding



  • Shower: My mom's asked for $25 plus whatever gift they wanted to get

  • Dresses $160 with alteration included

  • Bachelorette: $20 Ocktoberfest ticket (she didn't drink and she didn't stay at the hotel)

  • Hair: FREE I'm paying

  • Makeup: FREE I'm paying


Her wedding


  • Shower: Her mom asked me for $150 plus $50 toward luggage. 

  • Dress: $180 without alterations...tack on another $40. 

  • Bachelorette: in Boston, parking was $40 hotel was $60 (per person) plus $25 booze cruise ticket (and then of course whatever drinks I wanted but that was on me) Dinner $30

  • Hair: $50 

  • Makeup: $65

  • + more


I don't know if she knows how much we spent on her wedding but her being in my wedding is a STEAL compared to hers! They can wear their own shoes. I'm paying for hair and MU. I bought flats for the reception. I made hangers, wine glasses, and sugar scrub. They're getting MU bag emergency kits.

I guess it just hurts to hear?

I'm sorry you had to hear that, it feels kind of like a slap in the face when you have obviously gone out of your way to make sure your wedding hasn't been an economic hardship on your girls.  After reading everything you're doing for them....can I be your BM????


Chin up sister...try to focus on the reasons you asked each of them to be a part of your special day :)
