So my best friend and I are both BMs in our friend's wedding. My best friend told me that she won't be able to afford being in the wedding or to travel since it's out of state.
I told her that she should at least let the bride know before it gets closer to the wedding (August 8, 2020), and she agrees but doesn't want to upset the bride. She's not very good at confrontation.
I don't plan on telling the bride at all, but I feel bad knowing that my best friend can't afford it and the bride knows nothing about that.
