I actually had two maids of honor – two of my sisters. One has since run off with her boyfriend and eloped. She isn’t talking to us. He is in the military and is apparantly getting deployed, so they likely won’t be attending the wedding. I’m not sure how to deal, I’m just trying to take it a day at a time. And I guess I’m lucky I had another maid of honor to fall back on!

You are not alone- I’ve heard stories upon stories of things like this happening. Most likely, it will probably happen to me since my 2 MOH’s are super important people now. Im thinking cardboard cut-outs of them and Michelle Obama standing with me at the alter will make me happy.

So sad to hear your situation.  It sounds like you have a good attitude about it and like you are a great friend.  Unfortunatly these things do happen; it is difficult to get the world to work around one date and location!  I wish you the best of luck in finding another friend to be there by your side on your special day!

I had a bridesmaid leave to work in Iraq, but I pretty much knew she wasn’t going to stick around for the wedding.

I’m sorry to hear about your situation; try to take comfort in the fact that even though she would be happy to be at your wedding, she’d be miserable at work, now she can think of you on her wedding day and be completely happy.

I’m sorry. It’s unfortunate.  I couldn’t have two of my friend in my wedding.  try to make the best of it.  Maybe there is someone else who could fill in, who would be delighted.  Or maybe think of the blessings of a smaller Bridal Party.  (Less bickering, fewer expenses…)  Good Luck.
