    My cousin assured me she would be coming to my wedding last summer. Her, her daughter, her sis, my aunt, etc.
    I made her daughter my flower girl.
    About one week ago, she emails, saying, please provide us with more info on the resort, etc, so we can make reservations and get everything together (I'd already sent them an invitation).
    So we talked and I gave her all the info. No problem.
    Last week, she emails, and I quote, "Since my daughter is a flower girl in your wedding, it's only logical that you pay for our hotel stay, it would make complete sense to me that way." And said some things about how she's got a lot of bills lately, etc.

    HELLLLLLLLLLLLLL no. I can't believe she was so rude. WTF. You don't TELL someone they have to PAY for your hotel stay (her and FIVE other people) when it's THEIR wedding!!!! I had to wait a couple days to respond because I was so pissed, guys!
    I bought the flower girl her dress and all of her accessories already, too.
    So I emailed her back and told her, I dont want to create a burden for you by any means to come to my wedding but I am sorry, I cannot pay for your hotel stay since I am paying for my wedding and as you can imagine, a wedding can be costly.

    No response.

    GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.
    So infuriating to me that people can be so presumptious and just expect things!

          I'm sorry but she is acting like the flower girl is some service she can charge for. WTH- I mean I know you want her in the wedding but geez- asking someone to pay for the trip is a little far fetched.

          Crazy crazy people.
          Happily married since 2008

            Your cousin must of smoked some good stuff that day. Can she honestly think that you should pay for their trip? Maybe she just said that so you could say no and than she would have an excuse not to go.

              From the way that you wrote it, it appears that you asked the FG AFTER your cousin assured you they were coming. So why would that be on you?

              If it IS important to you, you can offer to pay for the FG's portion of the room. Which is probably nothing since she is a child!

                Umm...why has she NOT even booked her trip yet? The prices will be outrageous this close out!!!

                And, I am sorry, but I can maybe see paying for a small portion for your FG, but not for everyone! Hell to the NO!
