@MeadowsBee:  If they got the emails etc. I agree that they were rude and discourteous not to respond.  They  should have gotten back to your Maid/Matron of Honor.  I don’t think there’s much to be gained by dwelling on it though.  They may be nice people, but totally unreliable.  Going forward, you’ll know that.

One way I’ve been working around the contact issue is by setting up a totally private, secret FB group. That way everyone can see what everyone is saying, and let’s face people, even if people aren’t checking email, they are probably still checking facebook!

I agree with PP above who mentioned about laying things out a little clearer. Don’t be afraid to say something like, “I need to know by (date) who wants time with the hair and makeup people, because I’m booking. (Date) will be the cutoff.” Then when the date comes, make your booking and move on. They might be hesitant to discuss it because of financial constraints, so take the pressure off. “It’s not mandatory; if you want it, let me know. If not, no problem!”

I have a bridesmaid who is not married, not busy, wealthy, and still not at all involved in my wedding. I had to harrass her to order her dress and she showed up to my shower 2 hours late. Just deal with it.
