I don’t think so. I think you need to breeeeeathe a little bit and take the mental equivalent of a hot bath and a good nap (this may involve alcohol, i know it does for me) and say…. Fuck it. What is “Maid of Honor” other than a title that lasts a day? Keep in focus who you are, who she is, and how long this will all truly last. Do you think you will get enough help from Maid/Matron of Honor A and your local friends? If so, great. If not, maybe you will just have to accept that Maid/Matron of Honor B doesn’t really want to help.

The kneejerky reaction might be to tell her to step down. But is that drama worth it? And what would you do – promote someone else? This all may be more trouble than it is worth. Perhaps B should be a MOHINO (Maid of Honor In Name Only) or maybe a MOHINOSTAD (…Simply To Avoid Drama). Let her come have fun at the wedding and if she doesn’t want to contribute anything else, so be it. Maybe your friendship will fizzle out completely after the wedding. And is that a horrible thing? It’s a bummer, but people grow apart.

Sorry if this response was a little disjointed, I just got out of a physical equivalent of a hot bath (as in… a hot bath) and so I’m not very eloquent.

But I like your writing style and I think you are smart and that you will be able to interpret my babblings. 🙂
