How Do You Balance Weddings and Work?

Bridesmaids are asked to fork over lots of cash, but they also often have to finesse work schedules.


My colleague personal finance whiz Kimberly Palmer wrote recently about the financial burden of being a bridesmaid.

A wedding can also pose a complication on the job. Suppose you're a bridesmaid who is asked to travel for a wedding and you have no vacation days. Or suppose the rehearsal is on Thursday afternoon and the wedding is Friday evening and you're up against a tight deadline at work.

I'm curious to know how others have handled weddings and work in their lives. Has anyone refused to be a bridesmaid for a career-related reason?
