Apparently I am doing a vent before my wedding :(

So a bit of background story...my best friend (who is also one of my bridesmaids) has been dating this guy for a year and a half now. He is the man she is head over heals for , talking about marriage etc. I don't really like him and neither do our group of friends, he has always been rude and doesn't really make an effort to get to know anyone, you can always tell he's annoyed when we all hang out. So my FI and I (especially me) have made a HUGE effort to like him, always inviting him out, trying to make sure he has fun etc. just because I knwo he's going to be around for awhile and I dont want to lose my best friend over this guy! So anyways, he's known about our wedding for a year now and keeps talking about how excited he is etc. and this summer my friend calls me up and tells me he's buying himself and her dirtbikes (and an old truck) to get them around. (BTW this guy ALWAYS complains that he's broke!) So I'm like sweet (thinking in the back of my mind that he's totally going to ditch on our wedding) So time goes on, my gf pays her own and his deposit (And I find out she also paid for the dirtbikes etc on her credit card but that's not the point) and now he is saying he can't afford to go! This guy pays 300/mo rent and is a plumber....how can he not afford this? So now she loses her deposit and has to stay in a room by herself (which is more money) and she is going to whine the whole time were there about how much she misses him (like she did on our last vacation without him)
She is such a cool girl...why is she with this guy?!?!! URGHHH! Thanks for listening, I probably rambled on and on but I can't ever say anything to her so I needed to vent somewhere

We all see things differently. The best thing you can do is to take a "TIME OUT" if it is too much to bear before losing your sanity. Take a deep breath and walk away.

Hopefully she is more fun (she usually is) without him. I don't even think that Im all that bugged he's not going. I'm just upset for her because it's really bothering her and all I can do is be supportive

As for your friend, is there someone else that she may be able to invite to stay with her? I have a similar situation with my bridesmaid. Her husband is refusing to come, says it's a waste of money (WTF That's a whole new story...). She was concerned about paying extra and staying alone so I told her she could bring a friend, her cousin, her mom...whoever to take his place!
