- Wedding: September 2013
Never thought I’d be posting this, but I have a bridesmaid issue. I asked four girls to be my bridesmaids – let’s call them A, L, M, and D. A and L flew in a week ago and together with D, we all went dress shopping and out to dinner. It was an awesome time and I was sooo grateful that A and L could fly down for the weekend and that D was able to take time off work to hang out that weekend. Now they’re planning an amazing bachelorette party for me and we’re all group texting about bridesmaids stuff. We even ordered the dresses this past weekend.
Noticeably absent is M. I understood that she couldn’t come down during easter weekend because she was getting settled with her new job. But now she also won’t be able to make the bachelorette party during fourth of july because of work, and “maybe we can do a short trip later”. We also couldn’t reach her the weekend the girls were in town to make a dress decision. And when I told her the color choice, she thought we were still going with a plan that we had mentioned and nixed several months ago. Normally I’m pretty understanding but I just put down $350 for her dress and at this point, I’m kind of concerned that if she lands a new project, she might call and tell me she can’t come to the wedding. The other girls are pretty peeved too, since they already took time off work and are making plans. I don’t want to be an asshole and M’s really sweet, but I also don’t want to make this wedding a burden for her. It’s not too late to cancel the dress order.
So Bees, what would you do this situation?
