Why did I think I was immune?! My BMs are in factions and fighting with each other about the weekend of the bridal shower and bach party. I’m pretty upset and I feel bad for my 20 year old sister who’s in her last semester of college and should have better things to worry about than playing mediator. They live in all different places, so I’m mostly worried about the Bridesmaid or Best Man who took charge of planning AND lives farthest away. Agghhhh I am so mad right now! Btw, the two who are complaining didn’t voice concern when this started to be planned in November. I know all this because my sister is telling me how stressful it is.

You could always decline a shower or Bach party.
Personally I would stay out of it and let them sort it out.

I know this goes against the grain, but to save my sister the hassle, I would determine the date and tell her to share it firmly with the girls and blame it on me if she had to.

I would let them deal with it. You can step in and tell them when you are available though, if that would help.

I’m trying to stay out of it. I just wish the two weren’t putting my sister and other friend in this situation, and obviously they are all my friends but not friends with each other.

Are the fussing over WHEN it is? I think you should dictate that!

Yeah. One girl’s ldr bf is coming in that weekend and staying for the summer, but I don’t get why she scheduled him to come then when she already knew about my bach plans. The other girl’s bday is the day of the shower but she didn’t object to this before. Ughh.
I’m most concerned with the girl who lives farthest away because she’s the one who’s taking charge. The other two are just complaining and my sister is in the middle.
