- Wedding: August 2013
I think there’s a reason that in every bride, a bridezilla comes out. I don’t necessarily like the term, nor am I fan of the show — but planning a wedding (as well know) is very, very stressful. Throw in tons of opinions, complaints and other B.S., — then I don’t blame any couple for just throwing in the towel and heading over to Vegas to elope. Sounds so tempting right about now…
Let me start by this — I posted on a different thread that I’m not getting any help nor enthusiasm from my BMs. Given I understand that no one will be excited about our wedding more than me and my fiance, it sure would have been nice if some of them will show some support throughout my planning process. But to this day.. it pretty much non-existent.
First, they were supposed to buy their dress by May 26th — only 2 have ordered their dresses. The other 3? hmmm. I’ve texted, called, emailed. nothing. I’ve messaged them in facebook — READ the message, but no response. BUT — they do check Facebook, since I see them constantly LIKE AND COMMENT on other posts! Ok — fine. didnt meet the deadline? ok, I get it. I’m biting my tongue and giving them until July (dress usually arrives in 2 months)
Next.. my make up trial. I asked (by email) if anyone is interested in using my MUA for the big day — I’ll have to tell her in advance so she can bring more materials to the trial. NO ANSWER. I texted to follow up — NO ANSWER.
As a BMs gifts to them, I was going to also purchase their accessories. I asked again what they think would look good with their dress. NO ANSWER. NONE. DEAD SILENCE you can hear a pin drop.
Mind you, these emails and messages, were within the past 6 months. I do not email or text or message them every week. I know they have their own lives (one had a baby, one went back to school, one’s husband got deployed). I get it. I really do. But to answer just ONE of my emails, am hoping isn’t too much trouble. Because you see– when they have issues w/ their lives — whether its about their EX, their baby daddy’s or something, they TEXT ME, or CALL ME to talk. And I don’t mind that, because we’re all good friends. But how come when I need something — their help or opinion. I don’t get anything in return?
At this point, I just wish they’ll be a FRIEND. and support me during this very special time in my life. because if they need support in any way, I can’t think of a time when I left them stranded. I’m just really depressed right now — instead of being excited.
ELOPING… wow. must be nice.
