I had no issues with my bridesmaids, but then again I didn’t really demand a lot from them.  They didn’t have to buy a dress/jewelry/shoes, I took care of their accommodations, etc.  I told them they could wear whatever they wanted and all they had to do was show up and have fun.  It worked out perfectly.

I’m so happy to hear all the good experiences ladies have had with their bridal parties! Like you, OP, not only were the Bridesmaid or Best Man crappy but so were our Groomsmen. And we asked nothing from anyone! No parties, no help, nothing. Get an outfit, show up. Sadly, I am only friendly with one Bridesmaid or Best Man and Fiance had not heard from a single Groomsmen. And these were friends we had for years and years. Some people just plain suck! Enjoy your day and forget these rude people!

I’m sorry that your Bridesmaid or Best Man are acting like this.  Your Mom is right don’t let others ruin your wedding experience for you.  I really wanted to keep things simple for my wedding. I am only having 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man and my MOH.  I felt like the more people that I got involved the more potential BS I may have to deal with.  Unfortuneatly, people don’t always behave the way we hope. The 2 in my wedding party are long term, close friends and I feel I can be honest with if issues come up. I haven’t had any problems so far.  I don’t want to sound harsh, but do you think you may need to look at who you consider “friends”? and what behaviour you will accept with a friendship?  Good Luck.
