I dont understand why you did the planning for your bachelorette party. I know this is really hard my sister showed up 5 hours late because of a meeting she had and my other bridesmaid was 3 hours late for no reason. All I heard was the girls complaining that the mani’s where expensive even tho they picked the place. I think sometimes you do just have to roll with things and not entirely cancel all your plans. Some people think there plans are going to be important and its your choice wether or not you want them around in your life. Im glad everything turned out being fun and those are the times we must keep in our mind for years to come.

Sorry but… Bachelorette parties are not required, and while they are a nice tradition and a fun party, no one is obligated to go. I also think it was in really bad taste for you to kick out a Bridesmaid or Best Man based on her non-attendance of a party.

I’m sorry all of that happened to you.  It is really unfortunate.  Personally if one of my BMs stooped to the level of name calling I would ask her to step down.  You don’t need to be surrounded by negativity on your wedding day.

I think all these traditional parties have gotten completely out of hand. Have a night out with your friends and be done with it, but to make people commit to an entire weekend where some have to fly in and pay for rentals/meals/drinks as well? If it were me, I’d have to decline to even be a bridesmaid altogether.

It doesn’t matter how far in advance you give people notice. Maybe some of them were too embarrassed to tell you they really couldn’t or wouldn’t afford to participate, but they should have let you know sooner.

I’m sorry things did not go as planned as it sounds like you and your Maid/Matron of Honor had a wonderful trip planned. It sounds like a really small issue became much bigger and your friend ultimately was showing her true colors. Unfortunately I have observed weddings and funerals bring out the worse in some people. I hate for any friendship to end. I, like you, take mine very seriously. However, the older I get the smaller my circles has become and I am grateful for the untrue that were “weeded” out. Maybe one day your friend will apologize, maybe not. At least for now that is one less stressor to worry about. It seems like your MPH is a true friend through and through so just focus on friendships like those you still have and don’t worry about the rest:-)
