Aw I am so sorry! I really feel for you. My “friends” are doing something like that to us–specifically, we were good friends with a bunch of people, but they got mad at me and so are trying to “steal” all the other friends! It SUCKS!

We’ll be your couple-friends! Just swing by 🙂 And seriously, don’t let it get to you. Branch out–start a new activity, or find people at church if you’re religious. You’ll eventually find the people you should be friends with, people who don’t make you pick and choose. Just think, the relationships have developed into toxic friendships now, so maybe it’s best to find out everything and know you need to be meeting new people. It’s hard, but doable, and you’ll feel happier when the stress is gone. I do!

EDIT: Sit them all down and tell them you don’t want to hear about it during your wedding events, and don’t worry about the rest. If they’re real friends, they’ll shut up and be happy for you. And you can tell them that.

Wow. *cue theme music, courtesy of Benny Hill*

That sounds intense. And I’m sorry for saying so, but almost comical. I’m so sorry that you are going through all this. You’d think that after everything that’s gone on they’d be okay with taking a rest and focusing on getting along for your sake. I know I’D welcome the change of pace!

Wow… I’m with cinemaparadiso – ask them to leave it at the door for all wedding related events. If specific people have trouble with that, talk to them one on one and ask if they would prefer to be relieved of their bridal party duties. Sucks to lose part of your party, but you can still invite them as guests and it might be worth saving the drama.

Hope they can all be mature for your sake. :/

*hugs* For real,  sometimes it stinks getting older and dealing with adult problems… hold your head up, be kind to everyone and let the pieces fall where they may. All you can do is hold your tongue, be gracious and kind to everyone. Lots of hurt feelings running rampant, I bet, and you def don’t need to be in the middle of it all!

Wow.  Just wow.  

I’d tell the people involved that while I understand and sympathize with their situation, I’d really appreciate it if they could leave the drama at home and not stir it up at wedding related events. 

Good luck!
