Did you have a falling out with the bride after the wedding? Were you ever upset with how you were treated/mistreated? It just seems with the wedding industry lately that bridesmaids are sometimes treated as props or accessories instead of real people.

I’ve been in a few weddings now. Each with their own stresses. I found that the brides flaws or the few parts of their personality I didn’t like were exaggerated by the stress of wedding planning. No friendships lost, once weddings ended things got back to normal. I’m actually paranoid that my bridesmaids resent me right now. I’m sure I can be just as difficult as I thought they were being.
I only know of one friend who is no longer friends with a bride Turns out the bride had been cheating the whole relationship and applied for an annulment immediately after the wedding. Bridesmaid or Best Man friend wanted nothingggg to do with that crazy train.

I think the accounts are getting flagged (I’ve been flagging them too) but the person keeps getting new accounts.
To answer your question. I’ve been a bridesmaid 3 times and all were for my cousins. I’m still very close to them. But, I was a teenager for all their weddings, so I wasn’t given much responsibility or tasks, and my mom paid for my dresses and things. They seemed to treat each other well. Not a lot of my friends are married, so maybe I’ll be in some of their weddings.

Soooo to get back on topic, this is a super relevant convo for me right now as I am a bridesmaid promoted to Maid/Matron of Honor three weeks before a wedding because of a falling out!
The original Maid/Matron of Honor and the bride are apparently done for good, like, forever, and I am now stepping up. I don’t mind… I truly don’t… because I actually had a pretty uninterested/uninvolved Maid/Matron of Honor myself and know how critical it is for your girls to actually take an interest in your wedding.
I think the majority of falling outs happen between brides and bridesmaids who have not been through the wedding planning process, or bridesmaids who were low-key-courthouse-types. At least, that’s been my observation.
