Hi Everyone, I hope I'm posting in the right area! Just looking for some advice!
I got engaged July 2010, a week after the engagement I picked my bridal party, each girl said they would attend our wedding in Dominican Republic. My wedding is now less than 5 months away and one of my bridesmaids just told me she's not coming anymore. The bridesmaids dresses just arrived last week, the girls have paid half of the dress cost so far, they pay the rest when they pick them up. I don't know if I should make her pay for the rest of the dress, or if I take on the remaining cost...? I've also purchased personalized gifts for each bridesmaid, should I still give her, her gifts?? I've spent quite a bit of money on these gifts to show my appreciation to our bridal party for attending our wedding and now I don't think she deserves the gifts. But what the heck am I going to do with these gifts that have her name engraved on them?? Should I tell her how angry and disappointed I am? Or should I be the bigger person and be understanding and leave it at that?
Any help is GREATLY appreciated!
