I need some help and advice. I am planning a wedding that is about 6 months away. I recently had a bridesmaid and (I thought) good friend break up with her boyfriend (a groomsman), move back in with her parents, and basically cut all contact with me. When I have been able to get in touch with her, (about 2-3 months ago), she insists she still wants to be a bridesmaid. I am getting really frustrated because she doesn’t call or try to maintain a friendship with me at all, and I would really rather she just step down, but I don’t know how to handle this situation. why would she want to be a bridesmaid, but not want to be a friend?

Your friend is probably going through a very tough time. Instead of expecting HER to reach out to her, how about you be a good friend to her–send her a nice card or just reach out without wedding stuff being the topic. Text her and say hello. Maybe she feels like she can’t talk to you about her problems because you’re in engaged land and she just suffered a big break up. Or that every time she talks to you, all she hears about is wedding stuff (not exactly on her mind, you know?). Not to mention her ex is going to be in the wedding, too. You could also just ask her what’s up, that you haven’t heard from her in awhile, is everything ok, etc etc
