So, if you look at my previous posts, you’ll see I’m eloping. I asked my best friend to be my MOH/witness and her husband is the best man/witness for my FI. We always double date, so we just thought this was a natural decision.
Well, my FI hinted that we may be wed soon to one of my friends. She cornered me and asked if we were eloping. I told her that if we were, she would find out when everyone else does. She then said, “Well, just remember, you do need a MOH.”
Oh dang! I just ignored it, but then later she said, “Remember, some of us want to see your wedding.”
This friend is twenty-years older than me, and we’ve only been friends for about 3 months. She is very emotionally unstable and I don’t know how to tell her she’s not going to be involved in my elopement. In fact, I don’t want her to even know about my elopement until after it takes place, because I’m afraid she’ll leak it to my mother. GAH!
Advice, please ladies?

Just say “Yes, my best friend is my maid of honor” the next time she starts hinting. As for the rest, don’t talk about the wedding in front of her, and change the subject when she brings it up. And tell your FI that loose lips sink ships! LOL. Good luck!

I would probably keep telling her that you haven’t decided on your plans yet. You have only known her 3 months, she can’t possibly expect to be in the inner circle yet. She can find out along with everyone else and if she has a problem with it then I’m not sure she’s cut out to be a real friend.

I would just say that you haven’t decided what you’re going to do yet and tell her about the elopement when you get back.

Don’t tell her anything! Just ignore her/change the subject/say you haven’t decided yet. And keep away from her, she sounds creepy.

Do not tell her anything. You have to do what is right for you, especially if you want to keep it from your mother. And, tell FI to keep quiet!

haha @ PinkPinstripes, she is creepy. She has randomly shown up at my house a few times to hang out… and I have had to teach her some boundaries!
