- Wedding: June 2013
Even before i was engaged, me and my best friends would talk about them being my bridesmaids. And when i first got engaged they were so excited and would call me all the time or ask wedding questions. I have 6 bridesmaids, 3 are my sisters, 3 are my best friends. I picked a bridesmaid dress about 2 months ago and only my sisters have ordered it, or told me when they were ordering it. And i had emailed the dress to all 6. now my wedding is only 6 months away and the dress shop told me the dress could take 4 months , so i emailed the 3 friends and asked them to order their dresses, and they acted like they had never seen the dress i picked before. another thing is my Maid/Matron of Honor (my oldest sister meghan)found a rental home about 3 blocks from my reception venue and all the bridesmaids agreed to put in money for it, about 200$ each for the week, which is a lot cheaper than a hotel. But now they are saying they dont want to stay in the house and my Maid/Matron of Honor already paid a deposit, so she will be out hundreds of dollars. i told them i know it is expensive but they chose to be BMs. also everyone of my bridesmaids has to travel here, not just them. I understand my 3 sisters are older and more financially stable but my 3 friends act like they are the only ones who have to pay for things.
what can i do without coming across as a bitch? I want them in my wedding so bad!
