Tell them to suck it up. The wedding is about you, not them. They can ignore their differences for one day.
Why does everyone assume they are going to ruin the wedding? They hate each other, not the bride. They just need to stand next to each other for half an hour - big deal. Do people really think they are going to start a fist fight in the middle of the ceremony? I highly doubt this is going to be an issue.
Tell them if they hate each other so much, they can leave. Three weeks is a short time to find new bridesmaids, but you don't want them ruining the wedding.
If the choice is between having a nice wedding and having your bridesmaids ruin it, then I would get rid of them all together. It depends entirely on how selfish the friends will be. My sister ended up cutting the wedding party entirely and just walking down the aisle with our dad. The bridesmaids were trying to make choices about how the wedding would go, complained about the dresses not being the color they liked, and were stressing out my sister. The groomsmen were trying to replace the bridesmaids with their wives, complained about how much time was wasted, etc. Sometimes it is better to just get rid of the problem, simplify the wedding, and move on.
#31. Jesus! I totally understand why your sister cut it short! Those people were being horrible. As for this FML, I think it's safe to say OP doesn't want to replace or remove the bridesmaids. Otherwise, she probably wouldn't have submitted this story to a site name Fuck My Life.
Well you have 3 weeks and you can change bridesmaids if by then they can't see eye to eye for your day. If you have sisters or something just choose them.
