@MexiPino:  Are you looking for advice or do you just want to rant?  If it’s just a rant, that really sucks!  Are you going to do it?

I’m the type of friend that would say, “I love you to death, I’m so happy for you, but you’re being a huge bitch. Knock it off.”

I’d want someone to say it to me.

@MexiPino:  actually, your friend ventured into bridezilla territory a long time ago.  I’m not making my bridesmaids do anything except wear matching dresses to my wedding.  Since when does being a bridesmaid include manual labor?  She is taking total advantage of you and I promise she will not repay you when it’s your turn (by then she’ll be too busy nursing or something.). Nicely tell her that you are way too busy at the moment to make any changes.  Period.  Stop letting this selfish, self-obsessed woman walk all over you.  Wow.  I’m shocked that people have the nerve to demand so mfrom of a friend.  Wow.

Oh GOD! Thats not OK! As a bride if I realized that you’d already finished it, game over… I’d figure out something else to do with the new fabric… and truffles 2 weeks before the wedding? Oh heck no! Can you tell her that she’ll have to pick one or the other because you just wont have enough time to do both without dying? If she’s a great friend she will totally understand and admit that she just got a little caught up in the excitement. I hope you dont have to do all that!!

Could you incorporate the new material into the table decor in some other way, like as a runner or something? Otherwise I would just straight up tell her no. Asking you to redo something that labor intensive two weeks before the wedding is a step too far. I am doing a lot of DIY for my wedding, but my bridesmaids are involved on a strictly voluntary basis.

What a bridezilla! That’s just NUTS! You’re a much nicer person than I am, OP, because I would most likely sit her down, give her a pair of scissors, a needle, a thread and her precios new fabric and say something like “Here, make new bunting, have fun! And while you’re at it, make the truffles too, here’s the recipe!”

The girl needs a big reality check. If I ever go this crazy I hope my future MOH kicks me where it hurts!

@MexiPino:  I totally hear you.  I agree it’s wrong of her to ask…so rude to not even think about you in this!  I hope it works out for you!

@MexiPino:  Yes but you are also her best friend and need to talk some sense into her:

No one cares about table decorations.

Everyone likes good food.

If I was you, I’d say, “Sorry, it’s too close to the wedding, it’s got to be one or the other, and I highly recommend the truffles”.
