    I’d wait to pick your wedding party until about 9ish months prior to your wedding.  Sometimes people drift apart, but I’m betting that with her life having been upended basically, she might be experiencing a little post-wedding blues herself?

    This is definitely a “friend” issue and needs to be resolved completely separate of any “bridesmaid” issue.

    Wait to pick! I waited until I was 9 months out to pick and am so glad I did, because my relationship with my “best friend” fell apart in that time. It was sort of falling apart beforehand but I was attempting to shore it up, and I’m glad I gave it some space before deciding. 

    Reach out a few more times and try to be really honest with her about how you are feeling.

    I would try to reconnect with her before you decide either way.  if she’s on Facebook a lot, maybe send her an FB chat/message?  maybe she doesn’t like to use her phone for some reason.  then see how you feel based on how she responds.
