@Jacqui90:  I agree, I don’t think this is an email type conversation.  Good luck OP

If she’s flaky and unreliable, I would emphasize heavily how many obligations and commitments are involved in being a bridesmaid, and then say something like “I know you’re often so busy and your life is a little unpredictable, so I didn’t want you to feel guilty when you couldn’t make it to all these plans.” Obviously phrase it however makes the most sense to you, but I think that might be an approach that’s both honest and kind. And like PPs have said, in person.

how about pointing out that her trash talking is really just proving that she’s not bride’s maid material?
