A bride-to-be has considered demoting her bridesmaids after they missed her hen do.
The bride was left seething with anger after half of her bridesmaids chose not to attend her big day, with one of them not even bothering to offer an excuse.
In a post on Mumsnet, she explained: "I have 6 bridesmaids and have just found out that 3 of them aren’t coming to my hen do.
"One reason is that they don’t drink (but they are ok in drinking situations), another because of the money (yet they go away 3 to 4 times a year and are a blood relative), and the other one hasn’t given a reason but I've known her for 20 odd years, and she is going away for another wedding abroad the following month.
"Am I unreasonable for being annoyed? Would you demote bridesmaids for not being there for you or am I overreacting? (sic)"
