I didn't want a bridal party...I didn't want anyone to have to completely commit so early on..I went into this destination wedding wanting it to be as less stressful and as simple as possible. No drama for me:)
SMART! In a way i wish i would have done the same but then again i am enjoying the planning parts for the bridal party as well and love the look in pics

When it came time for her to pay her deposit she backed out... I had to find a replacement, which was no big deal because I have the best sister in law in the world and asked her. It has been 3 months since the switch, and when our dresses all arrived and she tried it on with us and noticed she would be missing out, she decided she wanted back in. Even though it would have been a headache for me to find another guy to step in and then arrange for gifts for her as well and set up the same things I had lined up for the other girls, I told her she could be back in it. I had originally paid for half her dress and was going to pay for alterations because she was a student and I wanted to help her out.... She decided to come right out and tell me she would only come if I paid for half of her dress and alterations, as it wasnt fair for me to do it for the other girls and not her too..... This ticked me off, I had already had to find a replacement for her, and pay for those items for this new bridesmaid.... and now she wanted back in, and expected me to pay for this for her? I explained to her why this requet was unreasonable and she simply said "its your wedding, you should expect to pay for things"..... I realize that, and I would have had no issues helping her out... if a) She made up her mind on if she was coming or not... or B)she didnt EXPECT me to do these things for her...
That was very unfair of her....i would have explained my perception of the situation to her. People dont understand the time and energy that goes into planning and you cant yo-yo like that cause it changes everything! what did you decided finally?
