Hello forum, I have recently found out one of my bridesmaids plans to leave my wedding early to try and make it to another wedding over an hour and a half away. I don't know how to respond to her, but I am really offended because we've been longtime friends and been through a lot together. I also invited her parents to my wedding as well. She recently broke up with her longtime boyfriend and he is a groomsman in the other wedding she would be leaving mine for. I understand she has other friends, but my feelings are hurt because she is in my wedding party and it seems like bad etiquette. I was under the impression that as a bridesmaid you agree to stand by the bride on the (whole) day of her wedding. Am I wrong for thinking this? I would understand if there was a family emergency or if she was sick, but leaving to go to a wedding her ex is in isn't something I think I can look past. I'm thinking of giving her a choice: a) be my bridesmaid and stay or b) don't be a bridesmaid in my wedding and leave early. I love her and I still want her to come, but she hasn't been a good friend to me lately and this hurts my feelings.
