have you ever skipped a friend's wedding because it's too expensive?
A close friend of mine is getting married, but it's looking like if I want to attend the wedding, it'll cost about $2,000. I want to be there but it's hard for me to justify spending that amount, even for a close friend of mine. I'm torn about what to say to her because I don't want to make her feel bad or guilty about what she's planning, but also don't want to make I seem like I'm blowing off the wedding for no good reason. Has anyone else been in this position?
