A bride has been left in a difficult situation after revealing her maid of honour has pulled out two weeks ahead of her big day.
The anonymous Australian woman posted on Facebook, where she said she has ‘fallen out’ with her maid of honour and best friend over the ‘smallest thing’.
‘It was so tiny, but she went ballistic at me and told me she doesn’t want to be my maid of honour anymore,’ she wrote.

‘I’ve tried reaching out to her but she isn’t answering! I don’t even know if she is still my maid of honour.
‘She had her boyfriend tell my fiancé that she doesn’t ever want to see me again.’
The woman concluded her post by saying she is ‘so upset’ and has ‘no idea what to do’.
It wasn’t long before dozens of others weighed in with what the bride should do.
Many agreed that she should ‘give it a day or two’ to let things blow over, and then check in with her friend to see how she is doing.
‘Give her, and yourself, a couple of days,’ one commenter wrote.
‘Then, go around to her house, and see if you two can talk, or meet out for a cuppa. If needs be, just don’t have one. Or get a bridesmaid to step in.’

Others said she should simply ‘move on’.
‘The last thing you need is the stress of trying to figure out if someone you chose with such an important role like maid of honour will be there to stand by your side on what is supposed to be on the of the happiest and best days of your life,’ one commenter wrote.
‘Give it a few days to see if she will come around and if not, move on (especially if you’re saying this was a minor issue).’
The commenter added: ‘This might be a blessing in disguise. You don’t want to look back at your wedding photos one day at a person who didn’t truly have your best interests at heart.’
Many agreed that during wedding planning, you often learn people’s ‘true colours’, and while there are people you thought would always be there, the ‘sad truth’ is this isn’t always the case.
Another added: ‘Sounds like she’s using this as an excuse to get out of it if it was a small disagreement. Find someone in your family to take the place’.
