It’s so frustrating when bridesmaids can’t get along. There is always drama when it comes to weddings, mainly b/c it is a mesh of a ton of personalities that don’t necessarily agree on things. So whenever I’m a bridesmaid, I usually defer to the maid of honor. When she’s not doing her job, I do my best to help pick up the slack so that the bride has a good day. I know it’s hard to swallow pride and get along, but it’s only for a short period of time, and you may never see those people ever again after that…so why create tension and issues.

I’m so sorry you’re going through this. Maybe you could have a little mini intervention and let them know that their attitudes at the shower were a little off-putting, and you appreciate everything they’re doing for you…even if it can be frustrating to work with your sister. Sometimes a thank you goes a long way.

I agree with the PP. My Maid/Matron of Honor and one of my bridesmaids used to be friends and had a falling out at one point a year or two ago. They pretty much loathe each other now. I know it must be difficult for them to be coordinating everything and having to have so much interaction but the bottom line is, it’s all for you and that’s what they should be concerned about.

It’s only a short period of time they are forced to be civil and they must love you if they agreed to be part of your big day. Try sending them an email and tell them that they shower was nicely done and you apprceiate all their hard work. Tell them you know it’s never easy being in a wedding (let’s be honest, no one LOVES being in weddings, they really are stressful) but you love them for being great friends and a great wedding party.
