This is really disappointing, to say the least, I’m sure. It kinda always seems like (from my experience and others’ posts) that bridesmaids are either awesome or missing in action. I’m really sorry about this.

Do you think you could talk to your sister, since she is the maid of honor and should be leading the charge, and ask her if she was planning on doing anything? If she says no, maybe you could ask another friend, family member, or co-worker to jump in and do it?

Also, maybe reaching out to the ones you haven’t been in touch with and ask them if they still want to be a part of your wedding and if not, no hard feelings. I’d rather not have debbie downers standing next to me on my big day.

Good luck!

That sounds terribly frustrating! I agree with KT… talk to your Maid/Matron of Honor and try to get in touch with the BMs. Maybe if you approach the BMs like you’re worried about them (“Hey, I haven’t heard from you in a while and I’m worried that something’s wrong”) they will be more apt to respond? After all, if someone’s been MIA for 2 months, something could have happened in her life. 

If your wedding party lets you down (and it seems like they are) maybe talk to your parents or a family friend and see if anyone else would be willing to host/co-host/pretend to host. 

Good luck!

I totally know what you mean & I just started using this site, I think I’ll feel the same way about the people on here compared to my bridal party 😛

My Maid/Matron of Honor lives accross the country & she’s the only one thats gotten her dress let alone PICKED OUT her dress & they’ve all had the choices for 3 months now. My sister lives across the country too & everytime i say something about the wedding to her she doesnt seem to care or want to talk about it (really fusterating) and my other 2 bridesmaids are my FH’s sisters who live here but they’re not too helpful.. no one (except my Maid/Matron of Honor partly because she’s newly engaged) has asked me anything about the wedding in a couple months now 🙁

Sorry to hear what you’re going through. It’s tough & fustrating, i know. But we’re all going through or have gone through planning a wedding so we’re all here dor you! 🙂
