Try phoning her instead of relying on email. Email is so much easier to ignore than a phone call.

Just touch base with her- see if there is anything going on in her life that is getting in the way of her responding, or if she may want to step out of the Bridesmaid or Best Man role.

It sounds like the Maid/Matron of Honor was calling…that’s really rude, to be ignoring all the attempts at contact.  No advice, just sympathy!

@ENarcy: sorry, missed that. I would send her another email and say that if I didn’t have a response I would assume that she was stepping down. I would phrase it a little more gently and caring but that would be the message.

Have to agree with Julies. I would e-mail her and tell her you are assuming she is not interested in being a bridesmaid anymore, so you will assume sje is not one anymore. In a nicer way thoough. Tell her if problems have ome up, or something then you understand. If she doesn’t answer your emial in a few days, then I would phone her, and leave the same message in a shortened version if she doesn’t pick up. If she doesn’t respond in a few days, then I would assume she doesn’t want to be a bridesmaids anymore, If in a few months she starts contacting you again, and talking about how she is so excited to be a brdiesmaid or whatever, or starts talking like she is still a bridesmaid, I would let her know that you tried getting a hold of her a few months back lots of time, and she never answered you, and you assumed she didn’t want to be a bridesmaid, so you have been planning things which did/do not include her, since she never got back to you.

Sounds like she doesn’t want to be a bridesmaid. Proceed as if she isn’t one.

I’m sorry to hear your having issues with someone you thought would like to be apart of such a special day.  I’m in a similar situation.  At this point I think I will just continue to include her in (emails or texts) but not be shocked if she doesn’t get the right dress.  Good luck to you!
