I wanted to have a small engagement party just for the bridal party, so that everyone could meet and get to know each other. It was stressful enough to find a date that would work with everyone's busy work schedules, college schedules, etc. I also kind of made it obvious on the invitation that it was really important for everyone to be there. So everyone said they were coming, but two hours before the party, one of maids texted me and basically said she was too tired from work too come. Is this a liable excuse for me to be upset? I'm just concerned that she isn't going to be reliable for other way more important events. Plus my maid of honor was hoping to meet all of the girls too so she can start getting the bridal shower planned. I haven't really said anything to this girl yet, I'm not really sure what I should say or how I should approach it. What do you guys think?
