My best friend is in my bridal party. Lately she has been lieing to me about everything she can. Just stupid stuff. I really don’t want to be friends with her anymore and can’t really trust her. I am planning on slowly pulling myself out of the friendship. How do I eventually tell her that I don’t want her in my wedding anymore? She doesn’t know that all the lies she has told me I know are lies. What would you do? She knows when and where my wedding is as well, what if she ruins it?

You need to sit down and talk to her before you automatically pull out of the friendship. Lying is never okay, but is there some sort of reason behind why she is doing it? I would nicely call her out on her lies and see what she has to say. There may be something going on that you don’t know about.

Yes, I know from experience that a friend lying usually has nothing to do with your relationship but rather their own insecurities about themselves. Is she lying about major things that have to do with you and your relationship with her or is it more insignificant stuff like how much she paid for her fake chanel purse??! You know trivial stuff that’s so important to some people but in the end doesn’t really make or break a relationship.

A friend of mine was in a similar position and in the end she asked the BM to either step up and help out with the duties or let her know that she was no longer going to be able to continue in the role. The BM chose to step down. I think that if the friendship appears to be going sour it gives the BM a way to back out in a non-confrontational manner. If she’s being that catty, I think she will.

I agree with Scribbles! I think you need to have a heart to heart with her and give her the opportunity to step down! Likely she feels the same way as you and will happily step down!
