@SouthernBee33:  I’m sorry you’re dealing with all this drama.  It’s up to you if you want to accept someone throwing you a shower (or multiple showers).  If you don’t want her to throw you another lingerie shower, you can tell her that you don’t feel comfortable because bridesmaid3 is throwing you one already.  It would also be nice for you to let the other bridesmaids know that they’re not required to come to any of your showers or bring you a gift (although both would be nice).  They’re only required to show up clean & sober, in proper attire on your wedding day.

 

The nice thing to take away from this is that you have a lot of people that love you. 🙂

@SouthernBee33:  If it makes you feel any better, most people i know (including me) have dealt with their fair share of bridesmaid drama, both as a bride, and as a bridesmaid.  It sounds like the problem is solved – she’ll bring a dish, and you shouldn’t have to give it one more thought.  I understand wanting to make sure everyone around you is happy, but she’s an adult (I’m assuming) and you don’t have to coddle her.  If she said she’ll bring a dish, you can hopefully move on.

@SouthernBee33:  And if she continues to behave badly, just do your best to ignore her and focus on the fact that you’re going to marry the love of your life.  🙂

I feel your pain!! One of my closest friends is trying to control everything…thats just her personality and she complains to me…about my own family! Unfortunatley I don’t have any advice for you – I tried to let them know my cousins were really excited about planning the bachelorette party and to let them do what they wanted and that still didn’t really work.

You could ask her to organize a little after rehersal dinner get together with the girls? a quick slumber party the night before the wedding? That might be fun for her…and the girls will already be there. Tell her it should be low key – movies, popcorn, maybe facials? That could be cute and she could plan everything from matching pjs to making the hot chocolate!

Good luck – this is your time. Listen with one ear. 🙂 That’s what I do.
