When the bride sent her friend an email asking for wedding cake vendors — including contact details, price estimates, and how prestigious the baker was — by the end of the day, it was a warning sign. “I felt my blood start boiling. Was she serious?! I have a full-time job, for crying out loud,” the bridesmaid wrote.

But the worst was yet to come. After three weekends of group shopping, the bride found her dream dress. It cost more than twice her budget at $10,500. Like any good friends, her bridesmaids, including the anonymous author, urged her to splurge. With her friends’ reassurances, the bride decided to go for it.

The bridesmaid — who had already spent $550 for her own bridesmaid dress, not to mention the cost of the bridal shower, bachelorette, and the destination wedding itself — was understandably furious. “My bank account was already taking a battering from the wedding and now this?” the bridesmaid wrote. She didn’t respond, but over the next few days, at least three bridesmaids agreed to chip in.
