Bridesmaid Dropped Out With 10 Days to Go

My friend and his wife where both in the wedding and due to covid and a job switch he can no longer attend. His wife who I thought I was close friends with refused to anwser my calls when I went to check on her. I had already let her picking a short skin-tight dress slide and she had rubbed some of my friends the wrong way. I pretty much had to get the anwser from my friend that she wasn't comforable going.


I have done everything I could for this girl and I know saying anything will just hurt my friend. Her excuse is that she only knew ten people at the wedding...that she was sat with...out of 30 people, the rest being family. I had just ordered her gift, an accesory for her dress, and booked a suite so she could stay with us.

    Oh no Smiley sad Can you return all of that and get your money back? It seems like it would be in the return period, unless you ordered customized things with her name on them.

    Do you think she dropped out because her husband did? That wouldn't surprise me, I've seen that happen before

    I got everything early so I'm stuck with it all. I kind of felt like she wasn't into it anyway, which was bothering me beforehand. I'm more upset that she wouldn't take the time to talk with me. It put the friendship into perspective though.

    Even the suite? Usually hotels let you cancel up to at least 72hours before.. But yes that would have also done it for me, at anytime she could've told you that she didn't want to be a bridesmaid.

    So sorry to hear. Sounds like she never wanted to be part of your wedding. Give her the stuff before the wedding, wish her the best in life and keep it moving.


    When she sees that you haven’t lost a beat, she’ll ask to come back. Tell her no thank you, you don’t have the energy to be disappointed again.

    I'm sorry you have to deal with that. Honestly I think you done way too much to cater to her as it is. It's your wedding not hers, she should be doing what you want not the other way around. I would try and sell the stuff online to at least get some money back. And tell her you no longer need her anyways. And stop reaching out it seems obvious she didn't care to be in the wedding anyways.
