They were thrilled to be bridesmaids at first. By the end, she wasn’t sure if she still wanted the friendship.
The problems started with the to-do list wanting…
…input on everything from dress colors and makeup looks to buttonholes for the groomsmen.
The bride got even more demanding when she asked Hayley to make a detailed Excel spreadsheet for her — which had to be completed the same day.
According to the teacher, Caroline had emailed: “I really want to get a wriggle on with this and need the contact details, price brackets, flavors and an idea of how prestigious the vendor is — in a table would be great. Excel is probably best please. Thanks!”
When she blew off work to get it done the FOLLOWING day, there was a snarky ‘thank you’ note about how it would have been better had it been the day before as she had requested.
If that wasn’t bad enough, that was only the beginning.
And then came the dress.
She ‘fell in love’ with one that was double the budget price. So what did she do? She told her Bridesmaids to chip in.
The ‘Dream Dress’ was a satin Marchesa dress with a price tag of $7,890.
Hayley received an email from Caroline later that day and broke out “into a cold sweat” when she saw the subject line “bridesmaid dress contribution.”
Filled with dread, she opened the email to read that it was “totally fine if you can’t” but she would really love it if they could “pitch in” around $115 each toward her “dream dress.”
Not only did she ask for them to pay for her dress, but also their own bridesmaid dresses, accommodations, bachelorette party, bridal shower, three-day spa retreat — totaling an amount Hayley couldn’t afford.
