I got engaged the end of May, and by the end of June my bachelorrette party was planned. We all live on the east coast and wanted to do Vegas, we decided on 3 nights since the flight is so long. More then half the people invited have already bought their plane tickets. This morning my Maid/Matron of Honor emailed to tell me that she wants to run the Boston Marathon this year, which happens to be on the 2nd day of our trip. We basically planned the whole trip around her schedule, she is a teacher so cant get off whenever she wants. She asked if we could change the date, I told her no since people already bought tickets.
But now I feel really bad. Either she cant run the marathon which would be a huge thing for her. Or she is not going to be able to go to my bach party because it is crazy for her to fly out there for one night right before the marathon. Am I crazy for feeling guilty either way?

Don’t wanna be insensitive, but it’s kind of her fault. She has to make the decision. It would be horribly rude to all of your other friends who are coming to change it now!

Ok first.. I noticed your name.. I have a lhasa too he is my bbaabbyy!
second, IDK.. I think as a Maid/Matron of Honor you need to be there for the bride, and like mouse said.. everyone else shouldn’t change their plans because of her. You only get married once(well.. sometimes) this is YOUR bachelorette party, she should be there. They’ll plenty of other marathons. I’d be pissed, personally.

I agree with Mouse. If people hadn’t bought their tickets yet then I’d say move it but that’s not the deal here. So Just let her know that you want her to still come to the party but that you can’t change the date. Don’t feel guilty she was in on the plans. Besides I hate to be the selfish bride but there are plenty of chances to do the marathon there’s only one chance to go with you to your party!
