Bride-to-be slammed for wanting a SOLO bachelorette paid for by her bridesmaids
A bride-to-be has been roasted on the Internet for wanting her bridesmaids to pay for a solo bachelorette party because spending time with them would be “too stressful”. “I have no where else to ask this. Would going on my “bachelorette” party by myself be weird?” she wrote on Reddit. The young bride has been slammed as “greedy” for her plans of a luxury solo escape rather than a party. She shared about her idea of a pampering weekend sponsored by her friends with the amount that they would have to spend on flights and accommodation and the Internet came crashing down on her.
The bride-to-be was quickly slammed by strangers on Reddit: “The audacity of this woman is astounding, a retreat would be pricey,' one woman said”. “I would be pretty annoyed if my friend told me she didn't want my company but would take my money and show herself a nice time,” said another. While a whopping majority of them thought that wanting a solo trip wasn’t the problem as much as asking her “typical” friend group to pitch in to cover for it. “It is completely fine not to want a party, I hate going to those things anyway but I also don't want to just give you my money,' said another Reddit another. The Internet is a strange but wonderful place and you can find many odd instances taking the social media storm. Recently, TikTok user @notpoliticalspeaking took issues with the fact that most enlisting to fight in Ukraine were men and Bramty Juliette, a TikTok mom was accused by therapist for using her 'crying baby' for views.
In her defense the woman tried explaining how the solo spa weekend would be less stressful than organizing to spend time with her friends as they live far off, “Like ask my girls to pitch in the X amount of money they would have paid for their flight to even get to where I am for me to just spend a weekend pampering myself?” the bride-to-be reasoned. “I have girls that live alllll over, they have kids, but I just feel like this would be easier and less stressful for me to just do it the way,” she added.
To which people pointed out that her luxury weekend could cost more than most people were willing to consider. For others, the bride’s plan was straight-up “incomprehensible” as the whole point of having a bachelorette party is to spend time with friends. The woman received a mixed bag of responses but people were mostly annoyed, “If this bride has a typical friendship group then she is asking too much. That would be about $300 for six or eight people - that's one expensive spa,” one woman said. Another Reddit user said “Contribute the cost of what flights would have been? Really? How fancy is this damn spa,”
While very few related with the bride and revealed their similar decisions that they don’t regret now, “I asked friends for money instead of having a baby shower so I could go to a fancy spa for a massage,” one woman wrote.
