To Attend or Not to Attend: A Wedding Woe 🤷‍♀️💔

Caught in a whirlwind of wedding planning, our bridesmaid finds herself in a financial and emotional pickle. With the wedding costs skyrocketing to a whopping $5,000-8,000 CAD, not including a week's unpaid leave, she is left questioning her decision to attend. The bride and groom's lack of consideration for their guests, coupled with the bride's dismissive attitude towards her friend's efforts, adds salt to the wound. And to top it all off, the couple is planning a $50,000 safari honeymoon, while their guests grapple with the financial implications of their extravagant nuptials. Will our bridesmaid choose friendship over finances? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...
