@cruzan1978: The best thing for you to do is just be there for them, try not to take their bitter words in anger and keep them going. Im so sorry that your friends have to go through this but I think your wedding will be a good distraction for them and might just give them a renewed sense of hope and love

@cruzan1978: So far, you are doing it right. They defintiely need a shoulder to cry on, and you’ve given them that. You seem like a great friend. And I don’t think they are angry at you or jealous that you’re getting married, but they are, like you said, left with a bitter taste in their mouths. Especially since your Matron apologized for saying negative things, that shows that they are both still going to be there for you and support you. But yeah, a good, old-fashioned, girls night out sounds like it’d be fun. Go out and see a funny movie. Go shopping (or window-shopping, if you are like me lol), go to walmart at 3am for the biggest tub of ice cream you can find, and just dig in while watching old disney movies or something. But I would say, keep it up, and let them know they are loved.

As for the photo-shoot, I’m not really sure about that. Since you did plan it in advance, you should still tell them, I’m just not sure when. I suppose only you will know when the time is right, because you know them best. (Or at least better than me.) Is it just meant to be a fun glamour shoot type thing? Or is it like a bridal shoot before the wedding? If it’s a fun glamour shoot, maybe they will be all for it, it could be a ton of fun. Anyway, let me know how it goes, I’ll send a prayer up for them both.

As we speak, one of our Ushers is here, heartbroken & confused. I am lost as far as what to say or do but what I am finding is that letting him vent, staying neutral, and reminding him that his ex (one of my BM) is 1/2 at fault for the lack of communication. If you find any magic tricks to make this easier please let me know! 😉
