Not everyone wants to drop their friends like a bad habit over a wedding.

No, I don’t feel that way because I would never treat my friends that way.

@Waitingbee57:  Not at all. I only asked women that were very close friends. I would never “drop” them over any misunderstanding.

I understand where you are coming from but if you drop there goes your friendship,and their feelings. Regardless off the drama, you can always work it out. It’s just nerves in the end anyway. 🙂

@Waitingbee57:  You have to do what you have to do, but in all honesty you sound as though you are treating them like employees, and I don’t treat my friends that way.

I think the reason people have bridesmaid drama is they expect too much from them. You’re supposed to ask someone to be a bridesmaid because you want to honour them and spend a special day together. Not because you’re looking for a free decorator/party planner/etc. I don’t get where all these expectations come from.

You “replaced” a bridesmaid with “someone who should’ve been there in the first place”?  Why didn’t you just ask the person who “should’ve been there in the first place” first?  Maybe you wouldn’t have had the issues you had if you would’ve done that!

@Waitingbee57:  How about the fact that sometimes it is not the bridesmaids who are the problem/being a bad friend.
