Soooo! I’m a little…No I’m a lot pissed off. I have a ‘ friend ‘ or something like that anyway. I was helping her pick out wedding dresses and she was saying she wanted something w/ a lot of poof! So she asked to see my dress, so I took it out of the bag to let her see my wedding dress..( I really wish I wouldn’t have). She goes in on my wedding dress.
” Your dress needs more poof”
” Your dress is to white”
” I don’t like the A-line”
“Maybe I should have not looked at your dress”
(in my mind… No shit)
After about 10 minutes of telling me why she hated my dress she goes on to say ” oh but it looks good on you “… U_U.
I know everyone has their our type of styles.. And I am cool w/ that. But I also know if I don’t like something I keep it to myself… Not sit there & pick it apart. She also told me.i was a brat! All because my Darling Husband is buying me a new ring set for our One year anniversary, because my wedding ring set i have now isn’t the set, he wanted to get me.
Anyway it’s taking everything in my not to go off on her for be rude. What would y’all do bees?..
Ps. She planning a wedding that really isn’t going to happen….

I would smile sweetly and say “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all” and then maybe add in a “Bless your heart” which everyone in the South knows is just a really nice way to say ‘F$&K YOU!’ 🙂

Meh, it sounds like she was talking about a dress for her while looking at your dress. At least she said it looked good on you. I wouldn’t get too worked about it. And the situation with her wedding (whether it happens or not) doesn’t play into my opinion.

I would move on as if it didn’t happen.
I would also recomsider if there were enough things I liked about this ‘friend’ to offset the things, such as this, that I don’t like about her. If yes, I would accept this as an annoying quirk. If no, I wouldn’t have free time for her anymore.

@DaneLady: I am moving to Louisiana at some point and I can’t wait to say that! If I use it in NYC, they won’t get it

It doesn’t sound like she was so much trying to criticize your choice of dress. She was just trying to get an idea from which to base how she starts looking.

For me it’s not what you say it’s how you say it… And I wasn’t a fan of how she said the things she was saying.

@Kee_Jay22: She could either be innocently brainstorming for ideas for her own dress, or she could be feeling catty and jealous. It kinda just depends on how she said it. The important thing is how you feel in your dress.

Omg, I used to have a “friend” like this! Friends like this are not real friends at all! She’s just jealous of you. My wedding-obsessed friend also got really jealous when I got engaged and she wouldn’t help me with any of the planning (even though she was going to be my maid of honor) but she’d always have something negative to say about whatever ideas I came up with on my own. I was giving my attendants silk blue roses in their bouquets and I only went with silk because you can’t have real blue roses and she said how cheap that was and how she would NEVER have artificial flowers in HER wedding. I bought some black silk roses to put next to the pictures of my deceased dog (who I had for seventeen years), grandparents, and godfather at the wedding reception and she said how morbid it was, that black roses were always morbid no matter what, and again that she would NEVER have anything like that in HER wedding either. After I already got bubble wands for the guests to blow bubbles on me and my husband during our first dance, she said I should have got a bubble machine instead. When she saw the bracelets I bought as “thank you” gifts for my female attendants, she said they were too cheap and that I could give those to the bridesmaids but I “had better get something better” for HER. My father was going to do the music for my wedding because he’s a professional DJ and she unleashed an entire chirade about how cheap I was supposedly being by not hiring another DJ instead and about how she would NEVER ask a member of HER family to do the music at HER wedding. Oh, and if she saw any Hello Kitty merchandise (which I happen to love and I had an expensive Hello Kitty cake topper which my husband bought me as a wedding present) at the wedding, she would “snatch it right off the tables because it’s too childish.” Meanwhile, it’s fine for her to love Hannah Montana, Winnie the Pooh, Care Bears, and whatever else she’s into. Go figure!
Like your friend, my ex-friend had also been planning her own wedding for years long before either of us were ever engaged and she already had a binder full of decorating ideas, vendor contact information, etc. When I was contacting her to see when she would be available to go shopping for my wedding dress, she wouldn’t respond, but now I’m glad she never came with me because no doubt she would have said a lot of the same things about my dress that your nasty friend said about yours! I no longer speak to my ex-friend, and if this is any indication of how your friend acts most of the time, I’d recommend you doing the same as I did and cut her out of your life! If it was only a one-time thing, though, and she isn’t normally this much of a bitch, I’d definitely talk to her about it and tell her that you really didn’t like her comments about your dress.

Just got this from her
I have to get this off my chest! I understand that you was pissed off with me and that is way I didn’t get a invite to your wedding, but I was still pissed off. everyone got to be there for ur big day but me. I know I did it too myself but it was a little brat’y of u not to let me come. I am still mad, you are asking for a new ring, from that man. You need to be happy w/ what u have. I know u thinking why do I care but come on.
Now I have told you that, lets talk about my dress! =D

@Kee_Jay22: Your ring is none of her business. The fact that she keeps bringing it up (especially in a conversation that really had nothing to even do with the ring) only goes to show that she is crazy jealous! Is she USUALLY like this?!
