I was having some issues with my bridesmaids, specifically my maid of honor who i met when i was 2 years old, and thought I was going to have to switch it up which would have been heartbreaking and friendship ruining considering I’ve been friends with all of them since I was a little kid. In order to save that situation, my fiance and I had a conversation with them saying that -we were incredibly happy together and ready to be married depsite our age (23 and 25) and we really needed them to get on board and be supportive of our wedding. As a Bridesmaid or Best Man, you have a monetary, but moreso an emotional responsibility to the brides (as long as she’s being reasonable) and I will be there to do the same thing for you when you get married.- after this conversation, everything kind of changed, I don’t think my bridesmaids realized that they were being bridesmaid-zillas until that time. And rather than attack them, I told them how I felt, which I think was incredibly helpful. All of my BMs are fulltime students so I constantly send them little thank you ecards and let them know how gracious I am of their help, which also helps them stay on board (I think, anyways).

 

So bottom line, tell them how you feel but don’t attack them and if they don’t respond, ask them if they still want to be your Bridesmaid or Best Man… I really hope it works out for you!
