Thanks Jac. At least we can move on from here. hug2.gif

I know it sucks, but maybe your relationship can improve now and she won't feel so pressured. Or, she might not come around again for a while. My ex-BM still hasn't called me, didn't come to showers, or the AHR. I think she is embarrassed and still feels guilty and it has snow-balled. I don't want to say that to freak you out, but some people do strange things and you need to remember it's not your fault.

Big Hugs!
Oh geez Erin I'm sorry to hear that. That is really, really sad. sad.gif I can totally understand how something like that would happen though. She just wrote me and said "Thank you again for understanding Jaime, and like I said please keep me in mind for things because I really do want to be there with you." so I'm pretty sure we'll be fine. Like I said, I'm just hurting right now and I'm pretty sure that's normal wink.gif Sucks, but normal cheesy.gif

Again, I'm really sorry about your friend... I wish no bride had to deal with some of the things our BDW gals have had to go through. There has been some really nasty and terrible stuff.. I'm really trying my best to "go with the flow" as much as possible and not try and control everything (I'm totally a "Type A"). Like I said, BDW has really been a saving grace in my life in that respect and I'm so very happy and lucky to have all of you girls to learn from and share with... grouphug.gif

I think it is really good that you confronted her now. I, like yourself, like to avoid things. I took the "confront the situation early" approach with my MOH. Here is the thing she didn't bow out gracefully, she has stayed in her role yet done nothing. I know she has had a really bad year and I could tell her heart isn't in it. It has been really hard for me to keep from getting mad at her b/c this is a once in a lifetime for me and she is supposed to be my #1 person. I would have stepped down in her shoes. So for most of this year I have thought as BDW as my MOH, that sounds strange but this is where I come for advice, to vent, and to be excited for my wedding!


My point is atleast you will be able to salvage a friendship with this girl, I will not. The worst part is that she is FH's sister and I can never truly end a relationship with her.


I wish you the best with your friend and your wedding!smile159.gif

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
