Bridezilla’s Letter to Bridesmaids Who Cannot Take Another Day Off for the Wedding


Hello All,

My apologies for sending this information out via email but this is the only way to get my thoughts out to each of you together and I think it’s important for each of you to review.

You girls, my closest friends have been my friends for a number of years and with each one of you I’ve had upsetting events, i.e. you couldn’t create my invitations, asked me to tell one of your friends that they are not invited to the wedding because you do not feel comfortable telling them yourself, or just decide not to connect with me on my emails or phone calls.

And now I’m receiving notice that some of you are not able to make it up by Friday morning (August 10th) to participate in our girly morning with our mani’s and pedi’s, where I would have the opportunity to thank each of you for being apart of my day/weekend. I am literally crushed from the above items, I may appeared to you not to be, but I was at the time those events happened and I still am.

I have had a lot of time to think about my wedding – one of the most important days of my life and I spent time thinking about who I wanted to be in my wedding to share those moments with Tom and I.

I selected each of you because we have shared so much time together chatting, laughing, and crying over everything and anything. Our friendships span a number of years and events in each of our lives and I wanted to share with each of you that special moment.

I know life goes on around the wedding and that there are some things in life that change, a big move for one, a baby for another, a new job for one, and an engagement for another. Very exciting and momentous occasions have happened for all of us the past year and a half and I’ve been very happy to have been apart of those conversations and hearing about the new developments and what’s next in each of your lives.

All I ask of you is to come together for this special weekend for Tom and me. I don’t want to hear that you’re unsure if you can get Friday off because you started a new job and unsure you can take the day off or you’ll have to wake up at the crack of dawn to drive to NH. I’m your friend, a bride getting married, I’m worth taking the day off and I’m worth you getting up at the crack of dawn for.
