It’s annoying but don’t let it get to you.  It may be better that she’s not there so you can really bond with your girls.

Yeah I said “What??” too when I read that she wants to get her face done at a store.  In my experience, store make-overs are hardly professional-looking and often turn out bad.

Did she tell you the reason she can’t make it by noon?  I would expect her to keep that entire day free, knowing that she’s your bridesmaid.  See if you can find out her reason.

IMO, a bridesmaid has every right to get her hair and makeup done wherever she wants, especially if she’d rather go to a stylist she’s familiar with and trusts.  So although it does seem pretty ridiculous that she would turn down free hair and makeup, that is her decision to make.

I think she is trying to distance herself (for whatever reason), and I’d let it go.  It’s not worth analyzing or worrying about.  You were gracious and extended a lovely invitation, and she declined.  I’m sure the luncheon and time together with your bridesmaids will be lots of fun and you will not even miss your SIL.

Yeah, I don’t think you’re wrong for being upset.  However, she has chosen and ultimately, you have to let it go.  I would definitely be annoyed.  I wouldn’t reply back saying you understand or that it’s okay, just be absolutely clear when she needs to arrive and if she’s someone who is generally late, then I would put in a 30 minute buffer window before you really need her to be there.
