I think you’ve been kind of harsh to your other candidates, because both of them seem to have serious real life issues going on that I think it’s unfair to expect them to sidelinefor your wedding. They could have been more upfront about them, though. Still, it’s unfortunate that you’ve had to switch a lot and I hope everything works out for you.

Oh wow I am so sorry that you had to go through this. I think that even though they are dealing with their own issues they DEFINITELY should’ve been up front with you. A simple yes I would love the opportunity but BLANK & BLANK are going on with me so I’m not sure I can.

I’m glad that you have a great friend ready and willing to be by your side.

So sorry you had to go through all of that.  It’s the reason I decided not to have any Bridesmaids – having a Gay of Honor is pure genius!  Love it!

@cirrus:as a bride who has dealt with losing 2 bridesmaids, 1 who lied to me for months, moving is not a “serious life issue” in my eyes.  something like a serious illness, death and things of that nature are “serious life issues”  These girls should have just been upfront from the beginning and if it wasn’t something they knew from the beginning they should have been honest and told her when they found out.

to the OP I can feel your pain but in the end the people who mean the most and are your real friends will be there for you, keep your head up.

@ENarcy: I agree that they should have said something right away.
