Being a bridesmaid is an honor but takes a lot of work. You'll be asked to spend money on events with the bridal party, help with planning, and maybe even learn a dance. If you know you don't have the time to do all of this for someone, is it rude to say no if someone asks you to be their bridesmaid?
AITA for refusing to be a bridesmaid in my sister's wedding?
I(28F) come from a big extended family. Including me and my sister (23F), there are 24 female cousins and 17 male cousins. Half of the cousins are already married. I declined when the first one ever asked me to be a bridesmaid. When I attend a wedding I want to have fun, eat food and dance. In exchange, I will get you a gift. I do not want to spend my energy, time, and money on your big day.
