    I think some of the Bees are being a little harsh without knowing the facts!

    I have been sorely tempted to ask one of my maids to step down but the rammifications are not worth it to me.

    Smurph:  I’ve stayed out of this until now but I just wanted to say that I’m so sorry you’re having trouble with your friend.

    After she begged to be Bridesmaid or Best Man I would have thought she’d have been more interested 🙁 clearly she has a lot on her plate and I hope she can see that attending as a guest might be better.

    I hope everything goes ok for you <3

    Smurph:  Does she seem like she’s going through a rough time? This is strange. Maybe it’s for the best.

    I asked TWO bridesmaids to step down. 

    I have spoken about this in previous threads at length, but to recap:

    They were best friends. I lived with them for a while, and THOUGHT we were friends too. When I got engaged I asked them to be bridesmaids. They asked if they could be my co-maids of honour. Seeing as my best friend (who I was thinking about asking) lives in another country, I agreed. After that things completely changed. I had a hard time getting a hold of them for everything. I also found out that they were telling people that I had “begged” them to be my co-maids of honour, and they were only doing it because they felt sorry for me. It eventually came out that all the time we were living together, and our friendship after, they saw me more as a ‘pet’ than a ‘friend’.

    I fired them AND ended the friendship.
