It's an honor to be asked to be a bridesmaid in someone's wedding, but when the bills start rolling in, that honor feels more like a curse.

Reddit user u/ThrowItAway7199 knows this harsh truth all too well. When her friend Julia asked her to be Maid of Honor, she of course said yes, but when the bachelorette party costs climbed to thousands of dollars she said no. Hell no.

Now, this Maid of Honor is asking the internet, "AITA (Am I The As*hole) for not spending enough on a bachelorette party?"

I (29F) am an MOH for Julia’s (28F) wedding.Julia has always had selfish tendencies, but friends kept her grounded. She has always expected people to pay for her, but is frankly non-reciprocal or cheap when the tables are turned.

Since moving to a new city and meeting her fiancé, it’s been hard to manage her expectations. Julia’s fiancé is great, but he has enabled her selfishness because he is financially well off. To paint a picture, he pays for everything- $12k a month on rent, $10k a month on gifts, vacations, $200k wedding etc.

They are having a destination wedding. This requires every guest to take time off and spend a lot. I spoke with her everyone about their budget for her bachelorette. Most said 1-3 days and $200-500. I thought this was really generous. Myself and one other bridesmaid could max afford $1000.
