Wow she sounds terrible. I would just let this friendship go. You DEFINITELY shouldn’t be the one reaching out to her

Honestly, your “friend” is a bitch and what she did was terrible. You are lucky to know now that you don’t need her in your life. I would cut her out of my life since she is not a real friend.. Try to concentrate on the positive. You got married! Congrats! And I’m  sure you had an amazing day and she was just a small part of it.

Let her go. It will be hard, emotionally, initially… But long term you are better off without this person. Remember everyone’s perception is their reality and she has obviously perceived you as doing something poor to her. From what you said it makes no sense, but to her I am sure it does. Why do you feel you need to have a conversation with her? Closure? Or do you really want her to still be your friend? Enjoy being a newlywed and chalk it up to a life experience.

your Maid/Matron of Honor is a terrible friend.  Focus on the girls who were actually there for you–it sounds like all of your other bridesmaids showed up for you.

She sounds like a real peach! I would be really hurt too, I’m sorry bee! Now you know what kind of friend she really is, I think I’d let this friendship fall by the wayside. Even if she thinks there are legitimate reasons for her behavior, she was being terribly selfish and inconsiderate the one time you needed her to just be there for you. You deserve friends who are supportive and actually care about your happiness. Let your other maids know how much you appreciate them and forget this sucky friend.

At first I was going to say… well, she doesn’t NEED to stay with you the night before…

… but then the rest of this… oh God. I am sorry. She is not a good friend. She should be reaching out to you. Even though it hurts, it might be time to let this friendship go if she can’t support you ONE day, on your wedding day.

Apart from the fact she is perfectly entitled to go out the night before the wedding (could have been the work function was planned before you made the plans to have all the bridesmaids over) she has acted terribly towards you, and she should reach out to you not the other way around!

danysnow :  OMG i thought one of my bridesmaids was difficult. But WOW!!! 

I dont think i would talk to her again. What for? If she had apologized maybe you could eventually work it out, but she is mad at you and being snappy at you. Heck no, dude. 

I hope you had a wonderful wedding despite all this.

Drop her. She’s a selfish person…and I’m getting a hint that there’s possibly substance abuse going on here. 7 hours?! Come ON. It was YOUR wedding day. Yet she thought only about herself. And that wont ever change. Save your sanity and move on.

Your friend was WILDLY out of order.

My best friend partied a bit too much the night before the wedding with the rest of the wedding party and so she didn’t really party with us the night of the wedding – and that didn’t bother me in the slightest. She’s the one that missed out!

But the fact that your friend added huge amounts of stress and disorder to your experience of the day is incredibly selfish and mean. I probably wouldn’t want to continue the friendship after a stunt like that.

Your friend isn’t a true friend.    At least you know what she really thinks of you.   Plus why would you leave your evening dress at her place.   

I would have taken my things and left after seeing what state she and her co-workers were in.

Beth7210 :  Yes she’s entitled to go out the night before, but the #nightoutbeforethewedding is an odd hashtag for a work function or anything else preplanned that the bride wasn’t even invited to.

I agree with PP above, I suspect drug abuse. New friends, extreme breaking of promises, erratic behavior, major change in personality. lying, and playing the victim. 

You shouldn’t reach out to her. If she wants to contact you she will, either still a partyer, or having seen the light. Then it is up to you to decide if you want to reestablish ties.
