Wow! I’m so sorry to hear that; so after your Maid/Matron of Honor has purchased her dress, etc she is decided to drop out? It seems very odd and I would think that she’s been planning financially for quite some time for your wedding; maybe something very serious has come up and she’s not ready to share.

In any case she does need to let you know ASAP! Sorry again, this is the last thing you need 1 week before the big day

I’d nicely tell her that you understand her difficulties and at this point, with it being this close to the wedding you are going to ask one of your other girls. If she’s still able to make it, you’d love her to be a bridesmaid…

Find out the details of her real issue later, right now you need to hand the details of your wedding first.

Oh no, hope she can make it! How awful, something must have happened that sucked away all her funds. Just wait it out, you can’t control people (not to say you’re controlling, just saying). You can ask someone else to be a Maid/Matron of Honor the day of, no worries.

oh, no!  I know how you feel.  Two of my Bridesmaid or Best Man dropped out about 2-3 days before my wedding.  I thought about trying to find someone to replace but I knew she couldn’t get her dress in time and I know she could fit into any of the BMs that dropped out.


I kept them in my program but instead 2 of my bm walked down with 2 gm.  They were very happy to do that!  Pictures didn’t turn out that bad either.

You can read my post on it. http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/two-days-after-wedding-but-still-annoyed-with-my-two-bm-who-couldnt-come

Yeesh- did she not know this sooner?  I’ll keep my fingers crossed!

Vanilla this happened to me too but my Maid/Matron of Honor would have been flying in from Germany while pregnant and with a 2 year old so I at least knew why she couldn’t make it.  She let me know in plenty of time and I was able to get a back-up in.

I like 2010bridetobee’s advice.

Don’t stress, it will all work out in the end.

My sister did the same thing to me! After planning and talking to me almost everyday about the wedding! Its crazy! I would never do that to anyone, you are given heads up way in advance to know if you can afford it or not, or if you really want to be a Maid/Matron of Honor or not.  This isnt like a game, its a serious day in our lives, people just dont take it seriously
