@bella128  it sucks having friends who are flaky, I have been in a similar situtation. Yeah, she could be better..but she’s still getting her shit together. Put yourself in her shoes, when I was a year out of college I probably couldn’t afford more than $50 for a wedding gift for a friend, and she is putting effort into buying favors for the game for your shower. I say don’t rely on her to plan any major part of your wedding, but don’t take it personally either.

@bella128:  I wouldn’t worry. At least to me, the issues seem pretty minor.

If you’ve invited 500 people, I’m guessing your registry is huge. So perhaps she looked at a few items and couldn’t find anything cheap. So perhaps it genuinely was out of frustration.

She prepared a game for the bridal shower and bought some mini-gifts. That doesn’t sound like someone who “doesn’t think more than 30 seconds ahead about me”.

And so she’s late for minor things sometimes…  If she’s always been like that, then you can’t expect it to change when she’s a BM. If she hasn’t always been like that, well maybe it’s a reflection of new priorities now she’s in the workforce. Either way, I don’t see any point stressing over it.
