Bridal Party Etiquette: Being Asked to Leave the Wedding Party

Awkward! Being Booted From a Bridal Party

Hey, it happened to me, and with all the high drama going on, I had no problem with it. I wasn't even booted as much as downgraded from maid of honor to bridesmaid. And, honestly, with an already-too-tight-dress, I didn't want to be anywhere closer to the center of attention. Having to be socially prim for one night made it hard enough to breathe; I was relieved to escape the responsibility.

The Sugar network is flush with engagements this week, but for those of us not getting a ring, we're likely to be asked to say "I do" to a whole lot of things, such as being a bridesmaid. Have you ever been asked to walk down the aisle only to get the boot? Or perhaps you've been demoted in the bridal party hierarchy? I imagine most of you wouldn't feel as good about getting booted from a bridal party as I did — so what would you do?
