@Leonard2B:  I’m so sorry! Being a bridesmaid can definitely be expensive but it does seem unfair that she chose your wedding to drop out of. Is she a close friend? Maybe you could talk to her about how you’re feeling.

It sounds like you really want her to be in the wedding.  Is there a way (if you can afford it) you two can each pay half on her dress and shoes- so she can still be in?

This could be an agreement between you two.

I would be upset, too! She should have declined the other wedding(s) instead of yours. 

Either way, there’s not much you can do now. Maybe try to talk to her about it? You could offer to pay for her dress in leiu of a gift, or choose a cheap dress for her. Or…maybe she could be an honorary bridesmaid – someone who helps you with planning and getting ready, but doesn’t have to pay for a dress?
