Heh, I love your adjectives, and how PB never ‘spoke’ but ‘screeched’.

Sounds like a shitstorm under the table. I always get frustrated at the wet noodles who don’t stand up for themselves. Of course a person can’t always have a big dramatic scene to in front of everyone to reassertion their sense of self respect, but a few subtle suppressed smiles at PB’s worst behaviors, and a half eye roll here and there at least let the other guests know you’re laughing at this sad person behind her back…

I see nothing wrong with “PB”. To me it seems like MOH was to timid to take front row in everything, so someone had to do it, and it ended up being someone who wasn’t scared to be loud, or push for the bride.

Unfortunately when it comes to large groups, like showers, someone needs to take control and keep things movng. Sometimes that person doesn’t use the best manners, but at least somebody was keepng thngs going. I have no problem theat this was a BM and not the MOH, I would thnk nothing of that.

ChicoryCreek:  She def sounds Type-A, but I can sort of relate. So, I don’t really have any input on that. I did want to just post and tell you though, that I really loved your writing style. Not sure if you are a writer or have ever considered it, but it was quite entertaining and def painted a picture for me. : )

I didn’t designate a MOH, if I did it would be my 21 year old god daughter.  she could not take charge.  I had 1 type A person as a bridesmaid and she did EVERYTHING for me.  some people thought she was being too “momma bear” and felt me out if I thought the same.  i’m sure they thought “wow we’ve been friends for years, who is this new girl taking over?”  nope, i NEEDED her to take the reigns.  she organized the bachelorette, timed out everything, stepped up to be the one to help my mom and me get me into my dress, took out a tide stick when she saw a spot on my dress (lol), basically wonder woman.

At least someone was running the show.  I’ve been to wedding showers where nobody knows what to do or say.  I’d rather have someone doing the job rather than a group of women all staring at each other not knowing what to do.  If the MOH wanted to run the thing, she should’ve taken over. 

If you want to be upset at anyone, it should be at the MOH for acting like a doormat and not doing anything about the situation.

My MoH went a little coo-coo on the day of.  She was very bossy and demanding of my vendors (and a little rude from what I hear).  It was a little embarrassing after the fact, and I even called two of my vendors to follow up and apologize on her behalf.  I had developed relationships with these people after months of planning, and to find out she was ordering them around and saying ‘the bride isn’t happy with ___, fix it NOW’, I was a little miffed.  The piece that bothered me was I didn’t even complain or take issue or express that I was ‘unhappy’ with the things she was being so vocal about (and they weren’t even issues … too many flowers on a table, REALLY!!!  I ordered them all and I loved them, I didn’t want them to disappear, and how can you have too many flowers:) )

ChicoryCreek:  That sounds pretty crummy for the MOH, I’d feel bad on her behalf also.  Some of the responses here are odd to me, I’m all for giving people the benefit of the doubt but shooting a nasty glare at the MOH during the shower is kind of telling…

She sounds like a piece of work! I would have been embarrassed if I were the bride.  How awkward.
