Bye Bye Friend

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately when it comes to weddings, you really do find out who you're true friends are. I lost a friend/ bridesmaid but that just means it wasn't meant to be... maybe our friendship was just over. Just remember who is going to be there for you... those are the friends that are worth your friendship!

I completley understand, and unfortunately this sort of thing happens and shows who your true friends are.

I know what you mean about not affording it, but then making a major purchase. But remember, they probably were planning on going on a vacation anyway, and they knew they couldn't afford your wedding AND Mexico (and their priority was Mexico). People don't want to stop their lives for a wedding I guess (it just stinks that she could have gotten a vaction AND a chance to see your wedding if she just kept an open mind and maybe choose Mexico for another year). Sometimes people don't realized how something so "complicated" could be solved with such a simple compromise. You all have such good friends that are coming, so celebrate them!

One of my friends told me she wouldn't be able to make our buck n' doe because she wouldn't be able to find a babysitter for her 2 year old in time. She told me that in September -- our buck n' doe was the end of February. I told her I found it very hard to believe that she wouldn't be able to get someone to watch him with 5 months notice. She's an idiot.


Another friend said she couldn't afford to come to our wedding in Jamaica, but I found out she could afford to fly to Ireland and f*ck around over there for 2 or 3 weeks. Niiiccce. Happens to all of us!

Wow, I can't believe how many a-holes there are out there! I really thought this wasn't super common but it's amazing how many flakey people there are.


I lost 3 groomsmen & 2 bridesmaids and spent weeks in tears over it. Both groomsmen are no longer our friends. One groomsman we haven't heard from in a YEAR, another groomsmen say he couldn't get the ONE day he needed off work but has managed to go to another DW the month before ours that he was invited to AFTER he accepted being a groomsman for us... then he had his girlfriend that I had just met email me saying they weren't coming, didn't even have the decency of a text or email from himself. I wish people were just straight up honest!


Everyones right though, it's amazing how weddings really put people in their true light and it's a rough time to find out who your true friends are in life but good to know as well that we can weed out the people that are not dependable.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
