How do i stop my bridesmaids from fighting on my wedding day?

Daniela, on April 30, 2023 at 3:21 PM Posted in Etiquette and Advice 0 6

Long story, but there was a family rift between my mom's side of the family and my dad's side of the family. Now neither sides get along with each other. I have multiple bridesmaids from both sides of the family, that's caused some problems. I had to kick a few relatives out of the engagement party because they kept bickering.

Then when we were buying bridesmaid dresses, the matron of honor took a swing at one of the bridesmaids. I have been trying to keep them apart, but that's going to be hard the day of and I don't want a war at my wedding. I just want everyone to stop attacking each other, just for one day. How do I keep the peace between the bridesmaids?

    Elope? You apparently have some very colorful friends and relatives.

    Eloping is your only option. It is not your responsibility to end family rifts.

    Wait, you're the bride with the drug handouts guest?! No I agree with everyone else, either you don't have any family members as part of your wedding because none of them can seem to handle a social setting, or you need to elope. Elope in a destination wedding to make the news of eloping seem less harsh to your family.

    But there's no way you're going to stop your bridesmaids from swinging at each other while monitoring another guest to make sure they're not passing out drugs to people. No bride deserves all that on a day where the attention should be on her and her husband.

    Between this and the guest who wants to sell drugs at your wedding ... I'd cancel the wedding and elope. You don't want to spend all that money on what could end up being a trash fire.

    Surround yourself with respectful family and friends.
    Whoever is causing drama should be uninvited.
