I think you handled this situation with grace; if you were trying to contact her, you tried to be polite, understanding of her time and other commitments, but ultimately if she couldnt be there on the day you needed, then thats grounds for being realistic and changing your Bridesmaid or Best Man. I think you also handled the changeover well, and tried to explain and Im sure your friend will understand in time.

Weddings are very complex creatures; take expectations, dreams and hopes and cross them with reality and unfortunately some things will let us down. The positive in all this? It seems you friend was understanding, that hopefully the friendship will be fine in this, and that you can rest easy knowing that you handled yourself with dignity and grace, and understanding.

You should not feel bad at all.  She knew what her responsibility was when she accepted a place in your wedding party one year in advance.  Her nonchalant attitude makes me think that she doesnt care whether she’s in your wedding or not, so why should you.

It’s times like these I’m very happy my husband – to – be and I chose to do a Destination Wedding with just a small handful of family there with no bridal party.

no way should you feel bad – you did everything right and were such a patient sweetheart throughout. please don’t let this weigh on your mind, you did everything you could and she was just plain inconsiderate.
