Vegas, in all its glory, was fun. We had a good time but…
I was hit with some unexpected expenses.
Friday, we were invited to a club by a promoter. Our drinks and cover charge were free. Woo Hoo for night one!
Saturday, the bridesmaid/ trip planner took us to a nice dinner at the Palms. None of the prices were on the menu but she had told us we would pay $75 for the dinner and for an all access wrist band to the clubs. After the meal was finished, the bill arrived and I was quite surprised when I was asked to pay double and pitch in for the bride to be (the bridesmaid/trip planner had told us she would pay for the bride to be but then decided not to pay).
I was really upset, especially since the bridesmaid had known the full price but had accidentally added incorrectly when telling us the individual price a few days earlier. Plus, when she decided to not cover the bride to be for anything but instead, divide it among us, I felt deceived. Had I known in advance, I could have made a better decision about going or staying home.
Yes, I could have made a huge scene and demanded more money from the bridesmaid but…
This bride to be is my future sister in law and it just wasn’t worth it to ruin the trip.
I paid way too much and we’re not going to make any progress this month.
Sometimes we just make bad decisions.
