Courtney Duffy begs Jetblue for refund after the bridesmaid is dumped by bride- social media debates moral ethics of sharing story live and bride behavior.

Dividing social media is the story of ‘jilted’ bridesmaid, Courtney Duffy after the financially hard pressed student recently found herself being dropped by the bride after having invested in a JetBlue ticket.

Duffy an MBA student at Ivy League school Dartmouth College decided to share her drama (for reasons not entirely clear) on social media after posting an email she’d received from the bride to be, axing her and demanding she return her outfit – a jumpsuit – for a newly appointed replacement to wear.

According to the email, the bride to be felt compelled to drop Duffy after the busy student was unable (or unwilling?) to fulfill all the necessary duties of being bridesmaid.

The email has divided social media, with many branding the wife-to-be a ‘bridezilla’, while others defended her view that bridesmaids needed to dedicate a large amount of time to the role.

Discarded Courtney Duffy bridesmaid, ‘laughing and crying.’

In her social media post under the handle, @cduffy90Duffy had also made it clear that she had by all means had to avoid the upcoming wedding at all costs, while noting she was ‘laughing and crying’.

According to Duffy she tweeted JetBlue to tell them she’s booked the cross country flights for the wedding but now wanted to avoid it ‘at all costs’.

‘SOS @JetBlue! Booked my X-C flights for a wedding, then was asked “to relinquish” my “duties as a bridesmaid” & mail my bridesmaid outfit X-C so another girl could fill in and wear it (Happy bday to me!) I am laughing & crying & must avoid this wedding at all costs. Pls help?’ she wrote.

The budget airline responded with an offer to help by paying for a ‘girls’ weekend’ to patch up the relationship.

Posted JetBlue, ‘Hey Courtney, we’ve been thinking. The jumpsuit may have been borrowed, but we’ll bring the (Jet)Blue. When you’re ready to patch things up, we’d like to help make your old friendship feel like new. A future girls’ weekend is on us!’

Duffy later posted two more tweets thanking Jet Blue and saying she had been surprised by the response to her post.

‘Wow, did not expect this response – clearly the situation resonated. Thanks @jetblue for providing the refund I was hoping for, and thanks to everyone for chiming in with well wishes, humor, and even devil’s advocacy,’ she wrote.

Adding, ‘Weddings have gotten totally out of control – this is about more than just an email. I’m hoping this thread reminds future lovebirds and bridal parties to keep their feet on the ground :)’

The bride, identified only as ‘Alex’, was revealed to have told Duffy her request was ‘one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to ask anyone’.

The dilemma led to a divided social media, with most siding with the jilted bridesmaid, while others sympathized with the bride. Below are a selection of tweets this author came across (who knew being a bride or a bridesmaid was fraught with so much fallout potential…) see what you think?
