Bridesmaids: Can I Uninvite a Bridesmaid?


I asked my older brother's girlfriend to be my bridesmaid, but they've since broken up. Do I uninvite her since I don't expect her to be part of my life, or is it assumed that she's no longer in the bridal party?


Yikes. While kicking out a bridesmaid is the number-one no-no, this is an exception. Nip it in the bud before the planning goes any further. Don't anticipate her backing out on her own. Your brother's ex probably assumes the invite has been revoked, but we think that it's always better to be clear. Call her (no emails) to explain the awkward situation for you (and your family) should she attend the wedding, let alone be in the bridal party!
