It should have been the first thing you said when she asked you to be in her wedding party since you weren’t actually friends.

Doesn’t sound like there was much of a friendship to ruin in the first place. Not saying you shouldn’t be hurt by how your “friend” used you. But you can’t squeeze blood from a stone and you won’t get an apology out of your “friend”.

LOL, and even if not,  “Relax child.” has to be one of the most pointlessly irritating /patronising of responses.

j_jaye :  Your friend sounds like an absolute ass, and it does NOT sound like you just randomly took it upon yourself to do this, that, and the other without being asked or guilted or whatever else. Nevertheless, you should really take this as a learning experience in standing up for yourself: you don’t have to say yes to everything everyone expects you to do, especially if it requires tons of money and/or time. 

Your friend is a bitch, though, and you shouldn’t reach out to her anymore.

beth2148 :  I’m confused you say you guys aren’t even close anymore why were you in this person’s bridal party let alone Maid/Matron of Honor then is there something I missed? Yeah she took advantage of you and was rude but since you guys aren’t close (still confused as to why you had the biggest role in her wedding) this is a friendship I would just let dje out.
