I thought $100 would be enough.
I was thinking some form of pamper party, with food but byo drinks.. she's now told me they are moving out of Brisbane and have no idea how I'll go organising it easily now. I have no idea where she's moving.
Asking 200 for the hens night and another huge chunk for a wedding gift is just beyond my understanding. It certainly not how I would treat my friends.
It feels really rude expecting that much. I'm kinda annoyed at her lol
$200 is a rip. people can't afford that these days. it should be about getting together and having fun, not throwing money in the name of some overhyped event.
this is why I hate hens/bucks/showers etc. they lose their meaning!
just do a classy high tea and be done with it. what exactly does she have in mind for $200 per person!?
she sounds like dh's sil...expects everyone to hand over cash when it comes to her but she always puts on the scabbiest and stingy stuff. wouldn't cross the road for someone else but thinks everyone owes her something. the age of entitlement is over honey!!
I certainly can't afford it! I can barely afford $100, that's why I'm thinking I may have to pass on going but my budget never stretches that far.
I'm the only one having to fly for it so I don't think she really sees that. I've got another 2 weddings next year to go to as well so I'll have to compromise.
it is supposed to be a fun event, held in the good spirit of the upcoming wedding, for friends to get together and just have fun before the bride to be says I do. why does it always have to turn into such a fiasco!?
my friend put a little bachelorette weekend on for me in Sydney as I have no close female friends or family where I am. I was happy to fly over on cheap flights and she put on a high tea at a lovely venue for me. we went out that night in the city then out for a few wines then home. it was just a relaxed but fun girly weekend. no fuss or carry on (as I hate fuss and carry on).
I've helped organize kitchen teas etc in the past and the bride to be always has really stupid demands and ideas and just expects everyone to make planning the event their fulltime job.
I don't know, I think people have just gone generally a bit silly these days 😝
