First of all, Hi!! You’re another Charleston bee, that’s fab 🙂

I think honestly it might be financial. Perhaps she was hoping to get a good tax refund or something, and it didn’t come through, or something like that. If she’s not answering calls, I’d just send her a facebook message asking her to respond to you by the end of the week. If she doesn’t respond, send her another telling her that you’re going to have to assume she’s out of the party, but that you still want her to get in touch with you in case something’s wrong and you love and miss her.

I soooo just went through the same thing!

Before you replace her, I would try sending her a message/e-mail one more time asking what is going on and if she’s okay.

I would try and talk to her before you replace her (I know you have tried).

Maybe you could write her an email (or FB msg as you know she is on there) explaining the situation and asking her whether she still wants to be involved!?!?!?!

Good Luck and welcome to the hive!

Hi Brianne,

I’m sorry to hear that dilema. I think it’s best to send her a message via facebook or email if you can’t reach her over the phone. Plus, you can leave her a voicemail that how important it is for you to organize for your wedding, and that you are stressing out about this matter. And you hope she will understand, and remain great friends. Because this is your wedding, so she will understand for you in anyway when you are worrying and stressing out with your planning. Good luck!

My first guess would be financial reasons, as I have seen other weddings where this is a factor, and this is what the attendants did!  However, you offered to help pay and she still said no, so I’m not sure what’s going on then.

I agree with the other ladies above.  If she isn’t answering her phone, contact her through facebook.  Some people have anxiety with confrontation in person or on the phone, and would rather correspond by writing, as it gives them a chance to think over what they are saying!  Maybe she feels that way?

Good luck, you sound like a good friend!
