I have the same problem!  One of my good friends and I had planned on being in each others weddings until I got engaged.. she stopped talking to me!  And then  my Maid/Matron of Honor (that I’ve been friends with for almost 10 years) came on vacation with my family and I 2 weeks ago and (long story) totally betrayed me and told me she doesn’t want to be my friend anymore.  So now instead of having my Maid/Matron of Honor, 3 bridesmaids and my junior Bridesmaid or Best Man – I have 2 bridesmaids (one of which I’ve only been friends with for a year) and my junior Bridesmaid or Best Man.  If I could go back I wouldn’t have asked any of them and only have my flower girls and ring bearers (Royal weddingish?!).  Ahh so stressful!!

I know its hard 🙁 I never had luck with friends.. I don’t know what I’d do without my fiance! And I always wished I had sisters.. even more at a time like this.  Of course my fiance could have 20 people for groomsman if he wanted to lol.  I hope everything works out for you!

i had the same issue my nest friend of 10 years was my maid of honor my sister a bridesmaid, and my husbands lil sister was a junir bridesmaid but i chose a “friend” to be a bridesmaid as she kinda talked me into it. i shouldve never listened she was an awful bridesmaid. didnt participte in anything, dress shopping, bridal shower, the wedding itself except for cake tasting!!! WTF i know, the day of the wedding i came to find her dress didnt fit her zipper burst and the seams on the dress were ripping, she had 5 months for alterations and couldnt even do that. its not the lack of money as she is a manager for a huge retail store. my advise to you is to choose your girls wisely, not who is your friend right now but who will be there for you in years to come. i hate looking at my wedding pictures and she in all of them. ive only been married for 1.5 months and we are done talking and no longer friends.

just be careful as my “friend” was my husbands bestfriends girlfriend and we hung out a lot and she was all excited about the wedding in the beginning but it soon went away. just remeber the pictures youll have forever and you dont want people who dont support you and werent there for you to be there in all of your memories. my wedding was perfect with the excpetion of my bridesmaid
