Wow, Bees! I went to a bridal shower yesterday and encountered a Bridesmaid-zilla for the first time. I could not get over how obnoxious this girl was.
The bride’s Maid/Matron of Honor was her younger sister and I felt awful for her. This girl was taking every possible opportunity to ignore, undermine, and disrespect the Maid/Matron of Honor and she just looked like a sad defeated puppy with a halfhearted forced smile on her face all day as this girl(I’ll call her PB for Pushy Bridesmaid) took over.
We walked into the shower and PB was standing in the doorway. She had this gigantic fake grin on her face and screeched in a sickeningly sweet voice “HIII!!! Welcome to *brides name* shower!!!” Handed us name tags and markers and told us to label ourselves, and ushered us to a table. Popped back at the table a few minutes later and told us to make sure we head to a table to fill out a couple of activities, which included writing down date ideas on popsicle sticks and putting them in a jar for the bride and groom.
The Maid/Matron of Honor just kind of stood behind her weakly smiling at us, and when she came over to introduce herself, PB walked away quickly. PB got to the middle of the room and asked for everyones attention, and when it didnt get quiet, she got this wildly irritated look on her face and screeched “UMMM CAN I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PUH-LEASE?!”
Welcomed everyone once more told everyone again about the date night jar. Maid/Matron of Honor stood about four feet away from her awkwardly. PB at the end of her speech suddenly piped up and said “OH and this is *MOH’s name*.” Didnt even mention she was Maid/Matron of Honor.
PB was the one who came around to all the tables to dictate all the other games. She also came over when the buffet was put out and said “Just wanted to let you guys know the food is out and yoire welcome to take as much as youd like!” Again, with the sickeningly sweet high pitched voice and fake grin.
Halfway through our meal, we saw her stride to the middle of the dance floor holding the date night jar and yell to the whole room “Is everyone participating in this like I asked? Guys, this is PATHETIC! Come on!!”
When it was time for present opening she sat directly next to the bride super studiously taking notes of all the gifts andannouncing to the room who each were from as,once again, Maid/Matron of Honor sat next to her awkwardly. At one point Maid/Matron of Honor leaned in and whispered something and PB shot her a NASTY nasty look and said a little too loudly “I got it. Thank you!!!!” And PB hissed over at the other bridesmaids “Um, if you guys can bring the other gifts over that would actually be helpful.” And lastly she was the one to present the bride with a sentimental group gift from all the maids and as the bride was marveling at it, she literally tugged it out of her hands and showed the room, announcing what it was.
Maid/Matron of Honor just looked like a pathetic defeated little girl the whole time with this weak smile holding on by a thread. I felt awful for her.
I wonder if this behavior will continue at the wedding as well. Its only about 5 weeks away, so we’ll see!
