Okay so my sister is getting married , me and my two sisters are bridemaids with the only sister of the groom . We are trying to come together to launch our sister a bachelorette party , but all obviously are not money . We want to rent a room that is paid by the board and the number of people eating ... Not expensive , like $ 10 a plate and obviously we will be paying for favors , centerpieces, etc. , we will not be super expensive, but we are not sure if the groom's sister will help pay . We've mentioned several times , but my sister , she broke seperatly let us know ( by choice , not work over time when offers / dropped out of college - no excuse) and the groom had to buy the dress for her BM , but regardless you need to know whether to pitch in to make our way to meet our spending limit ... we must go directly and ask "will have the money to split the costs with us ? seems a bit overwhelming for me . But to be honest I do not want to assume and be screwed because I am a college student 21 years of age , student working full time with a car loan , and bills to pay ... I feel better knowing that before planning ! MedlinePlus MedlinePlus In addition ... my sisters think that if she did not pitch in then you should not receive credit for it ... as in the invitation launched by : Sisters of the bride - it would be cruel of us to not include your name ? ! I mean I think it's kind of a bitch , but it is true that they are the ones who put our upmost time , effort and money to launch our sister a bachelorette party she will appreciate !

Why rent a room for the bridal shower ? Could not someone do this at home for free? And it has to be potluck style , this would reduce costs and allow all of her sisters to launch in. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I think your also quite rude , not airing the dirty laundry of her sisters , do you know why they made ‚Äč‚Äčlife choices she has ? Everyone else in the world knows that with the economy the way it is, it's hard to save up to dollor . You should be ashamed of himself as a person and as a sister . If you have an ounce of compassion , we offer for your sister to do things that cost money and an opportunity to be part of this wonderful day

You can ask what you can afford to contribute and work from there . Why do something you know you can not afford ? Why not scale it down and take their help in the kitchen and make invitations instead? Having it at someone's house so you can be part of the event without being overburdened. If you do not include it in the planning , you're right , do not include it in the category of host . But , just because she is not as financially able to contribute not to say that will not hurt . I would avoid the drama and do something that works for everyone . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Good Luck !
