is it possible something is going on in her life that is preoccupying her? My best friend has been MIA lately, not responding to texts or emails or calls, but I know she’s working 60-70 hours a week and trying to plan her own wedding on top of it. Might be worth checking in with her on a general level to see how she’s doing, rather than trying to talk to her about your wedding.

Join the club. I have had a least a Bridesmaid or Best Man not return texts or calls and  my Maid/Matron of Honor. It was soooo frustrating. But I ended up talking to them and told them I know u are busy, but as soon as u could, please respond back about wedding stuff. I mean I had a span of 2 weeks between the time I texted and the time one of them responded! Quite annoying. And one of them I asked for a pic for the wedding website, never heard anything from her about it. I just picked one from her FB page.

This is another reason y Im doing most of the planning by myself. They are too busy and I can get alot done if I dont have to rely on busy gals!

Anyway, worst case scenario, pull her out of the wedding party, but see if u can reach her. Do u want to go through this while planning?? If she was interested, she would have called u.

Good luck!

@lkat321: this is a tough one. She could be avoiding you just because she doesn’t want to talk about wedding stuff (i.e.  she really doesnt want to be in the wedding) or something could be going on. My Bridesmaid or Best Man stopped responding to me for like a week and when I finally got in touch with her.. she had been sick! So you might not want to push too hard in any case. Just keep trying to get in touch with her..

@lkat321: that sounds like a good plan. If she is dodgy about talking Bridesmaid or Best Man stuff though.. I honestly think she might make promises to come to the wedding and not. I have a friend like her.. She is a great girl and I would love for her to be at my wedding.. but I know she wouldn’t show. She literally lives 45 mins away and I haven’t seen her in MONTHS. Even when she says she is coming over (i.e. Thanksgiving DAY) she didn’t AND ignored my phone calls. I am not even going to stress myself with asking her to be in my wedding.. its not worth the hassle. It seems that you intentions are are good and you want someone close to you to stand by your side but it doesn’t seem like she is up for that responsibility.
