A young woman took to Reddit for opinions after she refused to attend her sister’s dream wedding. The price of paradise is just too high! Here is the full story.
They’re Not Close
OP and her sister only see each other about once a year because the sis moved far away from home.
It’s a Dream Come True
Now, OP’s sister is on the verge of getting married, and she’s been planning her perfect wedding.
They’re All Going
It’s going to be a destination wedding in the Dominican Republic at an all-inclusive resort. Everyone in OP’s family is planning to attend.
She’s Expected to Go
And, of course, OP’s parents and sister want her to attend, too.
It’s Too Much to Swallow
The problem is, OP would have to pay her own way. The total cost would come in at several thousand dollars, and that’s a bit much to swallow.
She Just Can’t Afford It
It’s not that OP doesn’t have the money, because she technically does. It’s just that she can’t afford to spend it on a trip.
She Works Like a Maniac
OP doesn’t make a lot of money at her job, but she works tons of hours. And she saves like a fiend, which has let her build up a nice little nest egg.
She Has Plans
But OP is saving that money to help build a better life in the future, not to spend on a lavish trip.
It Would Be an Expensive Memory
Just the cash outlay for attending the wedding would be more than the combined value of OP’s possessions, including her car!
She’d Lose Even More
And not only that, OP would have to take a week off work to go to her sister’s wedding. There is no option to adjust the number of days she has to pay for.
It’s Way Too Long
OP doesn’t get much time off work as it is, and she really can’t afford to be off the clock that long, anyway.
It Doesn’t Sound Like Fun
If all that weren’t enough to keep her away, OP is not in the least interested in spending time at a resort.
Not Her Cup of Tea
Drinking and lounging by the pool or even on the beach are not appealing to OP at all.
They Don’t Want to Hear It
OP has tried to express her concerns to her family, but they don’t really want to hear about her problems. Their main focus is the wedding and her sister.
They Know She Has the Money
Her parents told OP that she was being selfish for even considering not going to the wedding. They know she has the money and can’t understand what the hang-up is.
She Can’t Believe It’s a Problem
And OP’s sister is hurt that she’s considering not going. She would be devastated if OP stays away.
She’s Stuck in the Middle
OP has been waffling on whether to go to the wedding or not for so long that she’s having trouble deciding what the right thing to do is.
She Almost Pulled the Trigger
Most recently, after a day full of guilt and pressure from her family, OP sat down late at night and nearly booked her ticket.
It Stopped Her Cold
But when those big numbers flashed up on the screen to remind OP how much she’d be spending, she just couldn’t do it.
She Feels Guilty
So now, OP has resolved not to go to her sister’s wedding, but she’s riddled with guilt over the whole situation.
She’s Got the Right Idea
Redditors overwhelmingly side with OP in this situation and think it’s unreasonable for her sister to expect her to pay so much.
Many suggest that if she really wants OP there, her sister should pony up for the trip. In any case, nearly all the commenters agree it’s OP’s choice to make and that her family shouldn’t guilt her either way.
