@TwoCityBride:  Oh no she didn’t.  That’s not my-wedding-is-making-me crazy, that’s born-and-bred crazy, it just took a rough patch in the frienship to rear it’s ugly head.

It’s one thing to be disappointed that a good friend can’t be there for your wedding, even if she (mis)led you to believe that it was a different month (she’s not taking any responsibility for that)…but to make it personal and insult a “friend” because you’re throwing a tantrum like a toddler? Um, no.

She has to get over it & if she doesn’t, her loss!

@TwoCityBride:  You have a life. PERIOD. To you her wedding day is just an event, a celebration you were invited to, not a priority. Do the things you have planned that affect your life. If she gets angry at you for it she needs a serious reality check.

@TwoCityBride:  It’s sad to see a friendship go this way after so many years of good times….maybe give her some time to cool off and get her head screwed on straight, and maybe a non-verbal communication would be helpful, I think sharing your point of view without a conversation that could de-rail might be helpful.  A letter, perhaps, explaining that you had every intention of being there with bells on when she said it was in May, and made some other life plans accordingly…..and that YOU feel hurt that she didn’t tell you about the significat change in date because now you’ve made work commitments that you can’t break and had SHE been responsible enough to correct herself you wouldn’t have made those plans. 

I’m not into blaming sides, but she really needs to see the part she played in this, both in the creation of the “problem” and in her handling of the “problem”.

And if she doesn’t get that…..then she probably isn’t a true-enough friend to fight to keep, sadly.
