Bridesmaids Dropping by the Day

Recommended Posts

I am really upset, and to the point of tears right now... I had 5 bridesmaids to start, one by one they are calling and saying they can't go.

One is having court issues with her boyfriends kids (they might be getting custody) so I really understand that because that is really life changing. FI's niece backed out because as most of you know hardly any of his family is going, so another one down... And now my very best friend just called to say that she can't go... I feel like crying... I am down to 2 bridesmaids.

At what point do you just say, it's not worth it anymore, and give up on your dream DW wedding...

Oh that sucks! I am so sorry.

 

Think of it this way - at least you still have 2. And even if all your BMs bail on you at least you will still be marrying the man of your dreams. It's hard when people you want at the wedding can't come bc it is a DW, but it doesn't mean they love you any less.

shelley - i'm SO sorry to hear about your BMs...but if a DW is what you want, do it! are you having an AHR? it won't make you feel better now, but maybe it'll help if the other girls can join in some of the festivities...

 

personally, i'm disappointed at the amount of ppl that won't be attending my DW (these are ppl that i really thought would be there, otherwise i wouldn't care), and am thinking about an AHR - which goes against everything i've ever wanted...

I'm so sorry! If it makes you feel any better, I don't think anyone on this board regrets having a DW, whether their wedding was 2 ppl or 200.

I am SOOOO sorry Shelley! That's really awful and frustrating and sad. That being said, it is definitely NOT a reason to question your decision to have a destination wedding! I don't know anyone as excited as you are about planning a DW and I can't imagine you giving up on that! I can imagine how hard this must be for you, but you have to consider what you and FI want, and also remember all the people that ARE going to make it... don't let this get you down! When things get stressful I just remember that if at the end of the day it's just me and Steve on a beach in Mexico, that's enough for me

Isn't that the rudest shit ever? Like you just told them in June or something, freakin losers. Not just yours, but mine and everyone's who bailed when they should have thought about their answer before saying "of course" from the start.

 

It doesn't matter though, and you will have your dream wedding because you are marrying your dream man. My closest cousin told me she was going until the week before the wedding when she still hadn't booked then couldn't afford it . . . yeah stupid because what would have been $700 over 8 months is now $1200 due tomorrow . . . I still haven't talked to her. My mom says she's embarassed but you know what? We're all adults and people need to be honest. I would never agree to be in a DW if I knew I couldn't swing it.

 

It hurts, I know, but it won't ruin your day AT ALL, trust me, you won't miss them when you see your man waiting for you!!

That irks me; she's just discovered now that she doesn't have the money??! That's totally not fair to you. I mean, it's fine if you can't afford it, but why wait until now??

 

Whatever, you're still marrying the man of your dreams, when all is said and done; that's the most important thing!! wink.gif

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
