So one of my bridesmaids is a friend I've had since high school. We've remained close after all these years. Recently she just started disappearing off the face of the planet. She isn't responded to texts (I believe her phone is off) and when I fianlly do get ahold of her she just gives me weird stories about why her phone isn't working. We're going to look at bridesmaid dresses in two weeks and I asked her what her schedule was like so we could plan which day would work best with everyone. It took her over a week to respond and she basically said she quit her job and didn't care and gave me someone's number to "get in touch" with her "if" I needed her. She's known about us going shopping that week for 5 months, so it's not a sudden thing. I just don't know how to go about talking to her. If she doesn't want to be in the wedding she won't hurt my feelings in any way. I'm not gonna ask someone else to take her spot because that's rude. I'm just concerned with her dropping out like a day before the wedding (she did this to one of her other friends, so she claims). I don't wanna hurt her feelings or imply anything. But I feel like for one She can't afford the dress at this time, considering she is job and phone less.
