- Wedding: February 2011
I’m so happy to have found this sight, even though we’re super close with two months – it’s nice to feel like your not alone in all this planning:)
I had the unfortunate event of having to ask a bridesmaid to not be in the wedding. It has been a long time coming and some things were said/done which put me in an awful situation with my future brother -in- law, and when I attempted to talk it out, her temper blew and it was over faster than I had expected or wanted to happen. It’s hard to describe the situation in so few words, but it was something that needed to happen. Her and I have been friends for many years, but I feel as though we are at completely different points in our lives. I would have to babysit her whenever we were at social functions in fear of what she would say or whom she would offend. I just turned 30 last weekend and realized I’m too old to put up with this and quite frankly I’m sick of excusing her behavior…and it really drove it home when she attacked my future brother in law.
I am sad that this had to happen especially so close to the date, but I was so fearful of what she would do/say at the upcoming wedding events I feel that she left me with no choice. Has anyone else had to deal with situations like this? It has really made me regret asking girls to be my bridesmaids without really thinking it through…but it has been a year since I asked her and so much has happened in that time. I need some words of encouragement…
