I would stay in. If she decides she wants to “cut” you, fine, but your being a Bridesmaid or Best Man doesn’t conflict with your wedding.

If you can afford the dress and want to do it go for it… All I am making my girls do is get the dress and turn up, so as long as she isn’t going to dump a whole pile of stuff on you to do AND you WANT to be bridesmaid go for it, if you don’t want to be Bridesmaid or Best Man then she is giving you an easy excuse out 🙂

hmmm I don’t know if I would personnaly want to be in someone elses wedding two weeks before my wedding. I know there will be a lot of loose ends to tie up , and I’ll want to be relaxing… not sure if I’d want to chuck out a lot of extra money and time so close to our own date…but if that doesn’t bother you , then go for it! It also depends on how close you are to her. If it was a best friend, then I would, but if it’s a friend you’ve lost touch with then maybe you could let the other girls take priority?

There’s a lot of money involved though to be in a wedding compared to being a guest. I know that we will have final payments to make a couple of weeks before our wedding leading up to the last minute and I won’t be wanting to think about hair/makeup/dress/…. whatever else you need to buy for someone elses wedding. It can get so expensive. If the money isn’t an issue though, I don’t see a reason why you shouldn’t be in the wedding party… especially if you’ll be going to all of her events anyways, like the bachelorette party and showers etc.
