@MrsFutureG:  Is she having financial difficulties? How close are you two? Those are the only two things I can think of to make her behave how she is.

@MrsFutureG:  Yeah, I can understand that. I am a planner by nature so it drives me crazy when others aren’t…and then I have to accomodate them at the last minute. Usually, I don’t 😛

Since you say she’s always been a bit flakey, is this more than usual? I would be annoyed by the runaround too. When she tried to turn your Bparty into the party she would want for herself, do you think it wsa out of jealousy?

@MrsFutureG:  she just sounds like a flake.  I’m super organized and a plan-a-holic, my sisters (2 of my BM’s) not so much.  I know they’re going to make me mental.  Thankfully BM#3 is a totally planner and a great listener and I vent to her (and you bees).  My other Bridesmaid or Best Man, so far, she’s been fantastic – but she can be a little flaky.  I’m crossing my fingers and hoping for the best!

Wow, I thought my sister was flakey, but the worst she did was generally turn up about 2 hours late for everything, not at all or with boyfried in tow. I did feel sorry for the Boyfriend or Best Friend when he got dragged to bridesmaids dress shopping. Your friend is a whole new level.

No advice I’m afraid but good luck holding it together for the last few days.

why isn”t anyone standding up to her? why would you wait for her when you had to be somewhere at a specific time?

Why not say to her “the bachelorette has been planned for a year, I’m sorry we cannot accomodate your changes”


The dress thing seems like yu gave them free reign, so I don’t think this is a big deal. get it’s annoying, but it really doesn”t matter.
