- Wedding: July 2010
My Maid/Matron of Honor was supposed to be my best guy friend (I was his Best Man) but Fiance wasn’t comfortable with this so I gave it to my next closest friend. I have one other bridesmaid, and then my “attendant” (best guy friend). So anyway, my bachelorette party is supposed to be in a week and my Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man have planned NOTHING (my best guy friend can’t participate). They haven’t even paid for their $35 dress!!! I haven’t had a shower or anything, they are not from out of town, and I told them the only present I wanted from them was their participation. I don’t know what to do. I thought my friends would be great at this but they’re failing miserably and I’m very sad. The other day I was talking to my Bridesmaid or Best Man and she was very clearly trying to get out of buying shoes or doing a Bachelorette party because of expenses. Now, I realize we are all broke college students, but then why did you agree to be a BM? And really, how hard is it coming up with THIRTY FIVE DOLLARS! Sorry, this is just a bit of a rant.
By the way, I even sent them an article to offbeatbrides bachelorette party suggestions, some of which are quasi-free!
