Aww, big hugs to you! My guess is that if you are barely talking, she may already have a slight hint that something is up, or maybe even she is starting to feel the same way as you are. Can you just give her a call to talk about your friendship and where things are at? Maybe you two can come to a conclusion together…

Agreed- you don’t want to make that significant of a change without talking to her. Is there something major going on in her life that she doesn’t feel comfortable discussing with you? Maybe you inadvertently upset her, and a simple conversation would clear the air??

Just say that you don’t want your wedding to be a burden to her as the Maid/Matron of Honor is required to do a number of items. Approach it from the stance that you are concerned about it being a bother to her and come together mutually on that decision. That is what I did- My former Maid/Matron of Honor is still a Bridesmaid or Best Man in my wedding (just no longer the MOH) and our friendship is intact.

As i was writting this post she and i talked and we decided to not have her as my Maid/Matron of Honor she stepped down and is going to be a bridesmaid.
I guess its all better now.

That’s probably for the best. I wish I had had that conversation!! Props to you for being strong enough to confront it now.

Hey you guys, just wanted to give you guys the newest info on this topic. Well since i last told you guys, we kept it as my friend staying as a bridesmaid. Well a couple weeks ago i asked all my bridesmaids if they had recieved their dress. Well i asked my friend and she took a fairly long time to reply so i knew something was up, she finally text me that she never bought her bridesmaid dress because she could not afford it due to other expenses. So i asked her ok so are you planing to buy your dress, after about a 2 hr wait she told me she could not be a bridesmaid in a wedding she had no involment in. Lets start with her involvment well i would ask her to help me do certain things and she could never find the time to help me or had anyone to watch her son, so as the days went by i stopped asking her for her help. She said our friendship was no longer the same So thats the reason she could not be in my wedding! I was mad, so i did bad and accidently lost her invite, i just feel it she no longer thinks we have a friendship why should i invite her and make me miserable!
