@Bostonbelle:  I’m sorry to hear this.  Keep in mind, Bridesmaids are not obligated to attend anything except for the wedding itself.  It’s unfortunate she dropped the ball on the games, but it’s not hard to come up with a few simple ones.  As long as she is there for you on your wedding day that’s all that counts.

@Brideonabudgetlauren:  sorry, but I agree. I think she is trying to be there for 2 people that mean a lot to her. Her friend in the marathon AND you. And if she was in charge of games and didnt do it then why didnt your MOH or mother do it? I am not expecting anything from my bridesmaids other than to show up on my wedding day so I will not be disappointed if they dont make every event or dont plan anything.

If she’d rather go to the marathon, that’s just how it is. At least she’s coming at all. Can she help come up with games prior to, and then deliver them to the MOH beforehand? I think you’re overreacting a little and it might be time to take a step back.

Sorry the only “real” thing that a BM has to actually do is stand up for you at your wedding. The other stuff is just bonus.

@Bostonbelle:  I understand and just bc I dont ask my

BMs for anything doesnt mean that I dont think that it sucks/hurts that I feel I cant. I have 6 and have been friends with most of them for 10+ years. I just know that some would do some things and others would do nothing. I couldnt even get them to go look at their dresses so I just picked something with my

MOH and told them the style # and color. Being on here helps you in many ways especially to realize that your day is really only important to you. My FI doesnt even help. I hope you can forgive her and just focus on the fact that regardless if she helps you wil have an amazing day and get to marry your FI : )
