I am in need of your awesome advice again! I seem to be having a little MOH...situation.
So here is the backstory....
When FI and I got engaged, I knew instantly that I wanted my two best friends to be co-MOHs. We confirmed with all VIPS a good date that would work for them and settled on Oct. 18, 2014.
Once I had my BMs selected and confirmed, I got budgets from everyone ($250). We picked out a dress that everyone loved in the store and looked fabulous on everyone's body types. The dress came in at $150. Bonus!
Fast forward to about a month ago. One of my MOHs (we'll call her "K" for this), loses her job. I have been trying to be there for her through this, but she is always up in the mountains taking ski weekends which I am not quite sure how she is affording them...my other MOH and I have been having our weekly girls nights without K. K isn't interested in girls nights now she says. I have tried talking to her about this, but she blows me off.
So I get a text from K yesterday saying that she doesn't think she can afford her dress now because she doesn't have a job. I immedietly tried calling and was forwarded to VM. So I sent a text and said, "K, I completely understand! I couldn't imagine not having you in my wedding over a stupid dress. How about this, you let me buy your dress for you as a gift, but in exchange, you have to help me with makeup ideas. You are so much better at makeup than me!" She never responded...nothing. Until just now. She texts me and says she doesn't know and that the dress is way over her budget and it doesn't even look good on her. I respond that she looks fantastic in the dress (which she does!) and that she doesn't need to worry about the money (which she doesn't). She then says that she doesn't even know if she will be free on Oct. 18th...wth?
I am so confused. Do you think she misinterpreted my text? K is one of my bffs and I can't imagine not having her at my wedding. It just seems I am being met with excuse after excuse. Any suggestions on what to do next?
