Dear Brides – my wedding is 4 weeks away, and the dresses have come in. There are 5 bridesmaids altogether. We all live miles apart, but the wedding will be in CA where the rest of my family is and so is this bridesmaid. I think she is lucky that she doesn’t have to travel like everyone else. We were in law school together so we go way back. My fiance also likes her and they get along so well.
The problem with this bridesmaid is, she is totally unresponsive of late. She was excited for me at first, then as the months passed on, she became more and more unreliable. I am paying for everything so I haven’t even asked her for a dime – just to be in touch with the rest of us and know what’s going on. She never responds to her emails or voice messages, and when she does, she is busy and will “call me back”. She never does. Today I totally lost it, and told her she was fired. She laughed, said she was in a meeting, and that she would call me right back. Then she said I was joking and I can’t fire her. Well, she never did call back.
I am fuming and just about done “begging” her to be my bridesmaid. She is a size 0 so I have to find someone who can wear her dress. But I feel hurt that she is so unresponsive to my big day. What should I do? A part of me thinks I should just keep her, but her total lack of seriousness has worn my patience thin. Please advise!!!!
