    Yep! All of them gave me issues!

    Yes, but only one or two gave me any trouble.

    No, smooth sailing for me!

    No bridesmaids for me!

    I had some bumps in the road with two out of five of my girls.  One of them was just flakey and I wasn’t sure if she was actually going to be at the wedding (She lives in Colorado, I live in Ohio, she bailed on my shower and my bachelorette party.  Neither of which I ASKED her to attend, she told me over and over she would be at both).  The other one was in the process of leaving her husband but refused to talk to me about it.  There was a bunch of B/S surrounding it. 

    Honestly though?  I didn’t let them stress me out.  I didn’t let them ruin anything for me.  There was a reason I asked them to be in my bridal party, and it meant the world to me to have them there for my wedding.

    This is why I didn’t have a bridal party.

    Future Sister-In-Law was something else (she and the dress situation), but she apologized at the wedding to me, so we kissed and made up. She still does things that irk me, but wedding crisis averted, and all is forgiven.

    I had four attendants. The only one to give me grief was my sister/MOH. She dubbed herself the “Bridesmaidzilla” and claimed she had veto power for wedding decisions. It took two blowouts between us before she reigned it in. The biggest fit she threw was about her dress. Since I picked a brown dress for all of the girls, she claimed she looked like a piece of poop which she didn’t. However, I felt bad bc I think a lot of her protests about the dress stemmed from the fact the other three girls are very slim, and she isn’t. I wanted the girls to look uniform, but since I love my sister and wanted her to be comfortable, I let her pick a different dress in green (as long as I approved) since it’s still within my color scheme, and she’s the Maid/Matron of Honor.

    My bridal party consists of my best friend (MOH) and brother (bridesdude) so I don’t really anticipate any drama…  both are way chill.

    I had major drama with one of my three bridesmaids. She’s no longer in the wedding party and we’re not friends anymore.  The whole blowout still baffles and frustrates me .  I really thought I had all my ducks in a row; I’m paying for their dresses and letting them pick whatever dress they want in a designer’s line within fabric and color constraints. She had absolutely zero interest in the wedding details(except wanting to know if I was inviting anyones else from high school) and never provided any input on the dress lines I was looking at.  Then she says that none of the dresses would work for her and her religious clothing constraints, didn’t provide any alternatives, and says she wouldn’t be offended if I asked her to step down for the sake of my photographs.  There’s other stuff but that was the gist of it.  I’m still WTF over it.

    I’m 23 days away from my wedding, and I’m just running into a little bit of trouble now. I specifically told my Maid/Matron of Honor that I did not want to play “penis games” at my bachelorette, and she was planning on doing it anyway. So one of my bridesmaids stepped in and now Maid/Matron of Honor has her nose out of joint. It’ll blow over, but it’s annoying right now, haha.
