I’m still a long way from the wedding, so no stress from the wedding party yet, but gosh that sounds bloody frustrating!! Sure, they’re not going to be anywhere near as interested in your wedding as you are, but surely they could at least fake some interest?

I suppose you could have dropped some hints about pre-wedding parties, so they can kinda get away with not asking about that (especially if they’re unaware of the ‘traditional’ bridesmaids’ roles), but I’m sorry you’re having to deal with all of this.
Sorry I don’t have any advice, but I’m sure someone else will! There’s loads of brides with crappy wedding parties.

I feel exactly the same way. My MoH NEVER brings up the wedding (except to say she can’t make the bachlorette party because she has to work or can’t come in early to help me like she thought cause she has to go to FL? ok). One of my bridesmaids skipped my bachlorette to go to a family party in New Jersey because she knew she’d see me this summer, but she won’t see them until Christmas. Umm ok. But I have one bridesmaid that although is too busy with a newborn to help constantly sends me love and support and one that flew in and made my bachlorette so special and is so into weddings that she is prob more excited for me than I am for myself. I guess it’s just hard for some people to care about weddings or other people’s weddings or Idk. I definitely have spent a lot of time crying and feeling hurt (my family is far away too, so I’ve just been doing everything alone lol…I even had to ask my Future Mother-In-Law to come to my dress fitting, so I wouldn’t have to go alone, but…it is what it is, and people do the best they can which sometimes isn’t enough. If anything, I’m the first to get married, and I’m going to be a kicka$$ bridesmaid because I see how important it is emotionally more than anything!

In terms of dresses, send an email saying the place says they will be charging a rush fee if girls do not order by (make up a date). That will get the dresses bought trust me. and hang in there! Im sure it isn’t personal…weddings bring up a lot of jealousy, inferiority, fear of change, etc.
