So frustrating!! My best friend and one of my maid of honors(i'm having 2), has complained about pricing and where were going since the begining. I even got the prices down and she still complained and now I don't even know if she is coming or not! She has complained so much that I don't even want to talk to her about it anymore so I'm just going to wait to see if I get her reply in the mail. But I try as should you to keep a happy mind hopefully things will work out for you.

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...
