one of my childhood friends is getting married...she has an alcohol and drug problem and has been in rehab i think 3 times this year. i am under the impression that she is no longer using drugs, but still drinks heavily. i try to stay out of situations with her that will encourage her to drink. but she has shown up at my house on 1-2 occassions in the last month where she has been drunk- there is a major mood change when alcohol is involved. she gets very loud, obnoxious, and cries alot. the maid-of-honor decided it was not her responsibility to plan the bachelorette party for her, so i was pretty much told by my friend that i would be doing it. here are the issues i am having...#1, i dont wanna go! bc i know its gonna be an awful night. #2, not many of the ladies on the invite list are going. only like 5 out of 16...they are probably aware of the behavior. and #3, she wants super expensive things that i can not afford. SAHM!!Answer Question

Well this doesn't mean you HAVE to do it or HAVE to pay for everything. Why not just plan a night out at the comedy club and let it be a dry night of fun? You can just get friends together at your home too. You don't have to have alcohol to have a fun party or night out. Get the rest of the bridal party together and come up with some ideas on what to do.GL.

Well if she demanding these things I would sit down with her and have a talk. She shouldn't be demanding anything. When it comes to this she isn't supposed to know about it anyway. She should be grateful something can be done if anything in the economy. If she wants things like that to be done she better be prepared to chip in a chunk of it or downgrade to what fits everyone's budget.
