I got this question from a friend of mine who is getting married in the late fall and I thought it was a good question to share with you today since it seems like one that comes up a lot.
She (the Bride) told me that only two of her bridesmaids can go to her girls' weekend in Vegas and she wanted to know if she should I say something to the three who are not going?
I truly believe it takes a lot to get the nerve up to let your BFF know that you cannot attend one of her cherished wedding events especially one as fun as a weekend getaway but I truly believe that this is one of those times when silence is golden. We are not all on the same page when it comes to life and a lot of time the reason bridesmaids (or other friends) are probably skipping the Vegas getaway is usually because of financial issues, work obligations or time constraints. Truth is, these kinds of weekends are really difficult to pull off even for the most loyal friends. Talking to them about their decision not to go would only make all of you feel uncomfortable. Instead, schedule some local fun with the girls who can't leave town.
