It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “Disgruntled Bridesmaid” who was frustrated that she said “yes” to an old friend’s request to be in her wedding and was suddenly stuck planning both a bachelorette part and a bridal shower as the other bridesmaids shirked any responsibility. After the jump, find out how the bachelorette party went and whether she was stuck paying for (and planning) the whole thing herself.
Overall, I’ll spend close to $400 on this wedding. While not ideal, it could have been much worse financially and I’ll think twice about accepting bridesmaids offers in the future. Either way, the bride and her mom were so thankful, and I was happy my situation was mostly understood and appreciated. Thanks again!
Wonderful update — glad to hear it all went well. Hope the wedding is just as successful.
If you’re someone I’ve given advice to in the past, I’d love to hear from you, too. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to the original post, and let me know whether you followed the advice and how you’re doing now.
