Didn’t attend rehearsal

That is the only one that would piss me off. However, I wouldn’t have paid for the dress to be taken in. At that point I would have been like, “Ok. Either YOU pay or you’re out.”

I don’t think it is too late to kick this girl out.

Yep, she sounds like a bitch on wheels. Then again, I am not a part of the “BM’s only need to show up and look pretty” camp. No, I don’t expect them to be my wedding coordinator, but I expected them to be friends first and foremost, and attend anything a friend would attend, and do anything a friend would do. This is exactly why I kept my Bridal Party small and intimate. I had zero problems. But to be fair I picked friends not props. 


The only thing you can do is keep this chic from upsetting the bride. Make that your personal mission.  Try and have fun on Saturday 🙂

These kinds of posts scare me now that I’m a Maid/Matron of Honor.

She’s probably not interested in being a bridesmaid and is doing the bare minimum. The only thing I think anyone can really, legitimately get pissed at her for is the dress thing and skipping the rehearsal. As far as shower: 5 hours is a LONG time.

I had to miss a party, and came late to the shower–becuase I had to work– but missing the rehersal???? Um, no. That is the one thing you have to go to.

Why on earth would this girl pick a bridesmaid who SO clearly does not want to be in the wedding? Were there no warning?!

thats horrible. we had 2 groomsmen not attend the rehersal they had to work.. we knew about it– the thing that pissed me off the most was out of the groomsmen one got shit face drunk the night before and was 30 minute late for picutes and two guys forgot the hats we paid for– i wanted ALL the guys in gray fadoras for some photos and then had the girls take the guys hats and have a cute pic (i have a cute pic from engagement shoot with my husbands hat on) anyways because two of of six guy didnt have hats we had to forget those shoots… (i would have had all the hats at the hotel but husband said he would give the hats befor hand that the 33 year old guys would be responsbile for it and take care of it…

I wonder why this bridesmaid agreed to be in the wedding the first place?

I do have to agree though, 5 hours for a shower is waaay too long!
