MrsSkeletonKey:  you apologized two days before for threatening to not show up. You should’ve told her what you planned to do then or kept your mouth shut, went through the day, and left after photos. That’s what I would’ve done. Sounds like you were doing a little extra for her taste. If you knew she was like that, why ask a bunch of questions? I can’t really feel bad for you. You didn’t keep to your word.

I hope you didn’t know anyone else there..because everyone is going to be talking about you.  I don’t think the bride was being nice…but to leave before the ceremony?  Your just asking to look bad.

How old is everyone involved? Both of you acted immaturely.

You both sound as bad as each other, really.

Why would you ever accept an invite to be in the wedding party of a ‘mere aquaintence’,  that was asking for trouble!

Seriously?  This is so childish, on both of your parts.

Wow. Overreactions and bad behavior all around.

I am also curious about your relationship with the bride prior to her engagement? Honestly, I probably would have walked out on her too if she were treating me like a child. I wouldn’t care what anyone thought.

You should have sucked it up and then got hammered. Booze on her dime.

Seeing as we are only getting a glimpse into this mess, it’s hard to say who is wrong.  However, I think it would be hard for a bride to top being more immature than a bridesmaid walking out hours before the wedding. Sounds to me like you wanted the attention on you. 

I personally feel that a bride can be as stressed as she wants to be on her wedding day and the bridal party should support and help her through it, not cause more stress.
