Seems like all our friends are getting married this year...SIX couples between my friends and my husband's friends.  It's expensive!  I try to make as many showers and parties as I can, but sometimes I've had to decline an invitiation just due to money reasons.  I can't afford six wedding gifts, six shower gifts, and six nights out with the girls for bachelorette parties.

Me too, skigurl. I was hurt when one of my BMs didn't attend either my shower OR my bachelorette party because she was broke ... even though she went to Mexico on vacation a few months earlier. and THIS: the bride-to-be has included you because you're her friend, and it's not part of some evil plot to make you go broke is SO TRUE !!

i disagree about not attending the bachelorette or shower because you can't afford it unless there is a serious reason you are broke like both of you lost your job or something, you should be there for a close friend. plan ahead. i hate people who use money as an excuse.
