Can you talk to her mom? Will she listen to you? I’d order the extra fabric anyway, the shop people prob know their stuff.

Aw, I’m sorry!  It does sound like she’s going through a self-absorbed time in her life.  And unfortunately you’re getting the brunt of it.  You’re friends/family are right about the dress, its her problem.  I totally get why it still bothers you.  But there’s nothing more you can do.  If it were me, I’d let go and allow her to reach out to me.  Hopefully she’ll eventually realize she hasn’t been very supportive.

Oh I’m sorry.  IS this typical behavior?  If not it might be her own post wedding blues, adjusting to married life, hormones being pregnant, or all of the above…

I’m also unsure what’s going on with her feeling excluded.  Is she normally shy, or a bit insecure/sensitive? 

But certainly, she could have her act together to help you out with the dress.

I would try to talk to her, before her vacation.  See if you can see how her life is going.  Then check about the dress situation.  How much does the extra fabric cost?  Maybe it’s easier just to order it, and be done.

 

Good luck.

i would order the extra fabric…and maybe find someone close to her size to go try it on…being too big for her is a heck of alot better than being too small…lol… and as far as how she is acting, maybe she is going through something..ya know? maybe she is at a point in life where she is trying to figure out who she is, or heck, maybe something personal is going on with her and she is too embarassed to share it. or maybe her hubby is sneaking around and she just found out or something (im not assuming,just spit balling) my cousin did something similar and i found out many years later she had…well, lets just say had a marriage where her husband didnt allow her to do alot…. sad yes, but that is her hubby. i wouldnt take it too personal. alot goes on in a relationship that the couple does not share with others…. i would just give her a lil space and let her figure it out. she might be soul searching at this point in her life…. trying to figure out who she is and what she wants…..

oh and let me add…..if it happens to be problems with her marriage, maybe wedding is making her… i hate to say jealous…maybe making her notice the reality of her situation?? maybe making her sad deep down of her situation and she doesnt even realize it??
