hoping someone here can give me some advice. I have asked my best friend of over 20 years to be in my wedding party. We've known each other since I was in fifth grade and she was in sixth. Since I've asked her though, it has been difficult to pin her down about (1) a budget for her dress and (2) getting her to go shopping with me for her dress. I had initially asked her to be my maid of honor, but when she informed me that she would need to know approximately 10 weeks in advance
when my fittings, etc. would be, I reluctantly asked her to step down as my maid of honor, which she did without much of a fuss. But even now, she is being difficult to pin down for the budget and dress.
I'm really worried I'm going to lose my best friend over getting married. My fiance, parents, sister, and I are all really worried she may bail on me the day of the wedding. Can anyone offer any advice as to how to handle this???? Anything you can suggest will mean the absolute world to me!
