    I would discuss it with her, letting her know that I would LOVE to be her Maid/Matron of Honor, but it was financially a bad time for me – I just didn’t have the money .

    I selected ‘Other’. Funny, this just recently happened to me and one of my bridesmaids. My bridesmaid accepted the role of bridesmaid, despite her financial and time contraints. She was too busy for me and she couldn’t afford it. When I asked her, I tried to be clear that there would be costs involved. I figured it was common sense about getting fitted for a dress, so I didn’t mention that. She accepted it and said everything was fine.

    Being the bride in this situation, I wish she would have been honest with me from the get-go. Instead she didn’t tell me until the last minute and put me through a world of stress. I don’t care if she treated me to a mani/pedi or took my to dinner or anything to make up for it. The honesty, which would have eliminated all that stress, would have been nice enough. 

    Honesty is the best policy. Don’t wait for the bride to track you down and give you the boot.
