Firing a Bridesmaid Email
How does this sound.....
I accept your apology for deciding not to attend the bachelorette party. I understand that you have finacial problems which is why it would be best if you consider stepping down as a bridesmaid. There are going to be other costs associated with the wedding and I dont want to burden you with that financial committement. I will buy your dress back, and hopefully that can help you out financially. I'm sure this is a difficult decision but I think it is for the best. Please let me know as soon as possible.
Backstory: I asked my friend to be in my wedding. I thought we've been really good friends for the past 8 years but this week I feel like things have changed. She had promised me that she would attend my bachelorette party but last night (after ignoring my calls for a week) she FINALLY Called me back and as I suspected a week before she is flaking on the bachelorette. I am now stuck paying her portion $250 (as well as my own too). I could have invited another friend but we were limited to 8 people because of the limo. I would have understood if she would have canceled a couple months ago, but this is incredably inconsiderate. She knew about her money situation months ago but still continued to confirm that she was coming. I really regret asking her to be my bridesmaid. A couple weeks ago even though she was in town visiting relatives, she also chose not to attend my bridal shower, which really hurt my feelings. I chose her over my friend from high school and I really really wish I could take it back. My other high school friend has been so sweet and wonderful to me I wish I could have her stand up for me now.
