@Syoung1011:  You were not out of line at all. A overreacted. Dumping you as a friend because your FI won’t make her husband best man? Ridiculous.

I would leave A (and her son) out of the wedding party. But I would still invite them to the wedding, and hopefully by October next year she’s cooled off a bit.

@Syoung1011:  Honestly? I agree with your FI. I can’t imagine this is the FIRST time she’s overreacted to something, right? I can imagine being upset that she thought both would be in the party and now he’s not, but that text (especially mass-texting with the men) is just immature behavior. Since your FI is “glad the drama is out” of your lives, I have to assume she’s pulled similar crap before. 

I know it’s hard, but really…. do you want someone like that in your life?

A overreacted by dropping you guys as friends. That was way out of line! It is YOUR wedding party so you can choose whoever you want to be in it!! But then those people are free to decline to be in the wedding party, and A was perfectly within her rights to drop out since her husband, D was no longer going to be in the wedding party like you all had talked about.

I think both “A” and you should have stayed out of it, but it’s a little late for that.

@Syoung1011:  Yeah she took it way too far, she could have just stepped down! She didn’t need to say all the things she did.
