So Fiance and I talked and decided the best way to cut out the drama is too cut out all but siblings in the bridal party. I will have my sister, 1 of his sisters, and my “adopted” sister with me. And he will have his 2 brothers and his sisters Fiance.
Makes things so much easier. Have also decided only going to talk about plans with mom, Fiance and wedding planner. Cutting out everyone else. The big decisions have been made, so now the decor is all that’s left.
Lost a friend of 20 years because she had a problem with my indecisiveness, and wanted me to really only be asking her opinion. So when she found out she wasn’t in it anymore, she deleted me from facebook and blocked me from finding her. So much for what I thought was a strong friendship, it was easily ruined.
But I do feel like a weight has been lifted and I can get back to enjoying the wedding process.

I am sorry you lost a friend in all this mess….but I am super super proud of you for making the decision to make it drama free and that the choice you made has lifted the stress level significantly!
Congrats……I hope the rest of the wedding planning goes smoothly for you!

Tough decision, but I’m glad it worked out for you!
Bridal parties are a very American and more recent event, they can be awesome but it seems like it causes some serious rifts in relationships. Id much rather have my friends attend and celebrate with me, than elevate them up to an awkward game of responsibility and assumption.

One of my other bridesmaids actually suggested it. She said she would be there for me on my day, but if it helped make things easier cut out all but family. She had problems with her Maid/Matron of Honor and wishes she had taken her out of the wedding.
I’m sad to have lost her, but now I know who my true friends are.
