Um, no.  No, you’re not.

Your “friend” is being bratty and spoiled.  No one owes her a gift, for pete’s sake, and it sounds as though you already went above and beyond for her.

i’m confused. did you buy them the vacuum cleaner and give them the desk? why is she asking if you’re going ot give her a present? more importantly, why are you friends with this girl?

Holy spotted cow! Are you kidding me??? No, you’re definitely on the right side of this issue. Wow. She must have a serious princess complex. Maybe you should give her a few free sessions with a therapist as a one year anniversary present? :/

I almost stopped reading after the "how dare you" for asking about the bachelorette party.

So glad I didn’t cause that was FASCINATING. I’m sorry but what an a-hole this girl is!!! She is a rude jerk. You went above and beyond, as did the NY bridesmaid and if I were you, I would straight up tell her she’s being a huge ungrateful b*tch!

@nicannette: She obviously needs a lesson in manners/etiquette.

That story totally disgusts me, I’d tell her to cram it with walnuts. I wish I could compose a more thought out response but I’m so in shock.

Personally, I don’t know that I would really consider the desk a wedding present. 

However, you still got her a great shower gift, hosted a bachelorette party, and acted as MOH.  You didn’t need to give her something beyond that. 

Did you give her a nice card or anything like that?  From a bride where some members of our wedding party didn’t even give us a card, I can understand why she might be upset about that.  I selected my BMs because they were my closest nearest and dearest friends.  I would have really loved a little card or other sentimental gift to remember the their support of our wedding.

Good Lord, I’d send this girl an etiquette book STAT, with the ‘no gifts required’ section highlighted for her.  Then attach a letter giving her a piece of my mind, and explaining that this would be the last she’d ever hear from me, as I have no room for selfish, toxic people in my life.  What. A. B*tch.

I’m still wondering why she was counting gifts the day after her wedding? I mean doesn’t she have better things to do like have sex with her new husband or better yet go on a honeymoon? I mean, I appreciated every gift we got, but it was almost a chore for us to finally open the gifts and track what everyone gave us. They were the last things on our mind..

@MissSawyer- Cram it with walnuts lol so funny.

@nicannette- I was totally disgusted by your friend’s attitude and after all you did for her. I honestly don’t think I’d let that slide at all. I’d tell her to her face how rude she’s acting and remind her ALL that you did for her and say you cannot continue a friendship with her if she doesn’t #1 apologize for the way she acted #2 change her ways. Who wants to be friends with a spoiled brat like that anyway?

Also I got married this past weekend and yes after opening cards we noticed that we didn’t get some from certain people but we in no way contacted them to inquire about it! We actually have 2 people that contacted my parents to say they accidentally forgot to put the card in the box and were mailing it, ya know what, we got one yesterday. I honestly couldn’t have cared if it showed up at all, I was just happy that people were there to celebrate with us. Your friend obviously only had a wedding to get gifts and be pampered and spoiled is what it sounds like. It also sounds like she has no etiquette or class.
