Did you tell her it was important to you that she’d come?  That’d you’d love to spend some time with her or did you just asume that she would spent her day off with you?  Begging seems like much I would have just told her flat out how you felt.  Are any of your BMs around can they help?  Or does your FI have family that might want to help out and you could get to know better?  Turn this into a postive and next time be clear in what you’d like from your MOH.  If she continues to choose the BF over you and doesn’t help at all then you might have a bit of a problem.

I know how you feel because I also live fairly far away from where I grew up so when I go home I inform my best friends and ask if they can do something. I’ve been canceled on more than once for various reasons and it hurts my feelings.

Maybe there was a really good deal at the water park that day? Can you schedule the cake tasting for sometime after her work?

@LadyMoriarty:  Yikes that really stinks 🙁 Do you have any other BMs that can go with you? My feelings would be hurt too.

I am sorry you feel that way, however, the bridal party is it not mandatory to help out with wedding stuff. She probably felt that doing wedding stuff over a waterpark would be boring….

I’m sorry you feel this way, but its not your MOH’s responsibility to help plan your wedding and attend things like cake tastings – yes, you let her know when you would be in town, but maybe she just wants to do something fun on her day off – not plan your wedding. Just because your parents are diabetic, that doesn’t mean they can’t attend with you – both my FI and mother are diabetic and are attending the cake tasting.

@LadyMoriarty:  Wow.  I think you need to call her again and explain how hurt you are.  Maybe she won’t reconsider but you will make your point heard.  I can’t even imagine.  

Also, a waterpark?  Ew.

@LadyMoriarty:  Theres a difference between being a MOH and excited for the bride and being expected to actually plan the wedding. My BMs are all great and very helpful – but I would never expect them do things like meet with florists or caterers, etc. I’m sure she’s excited for you, but she does also have her own life and plans.

Is it Water Country?  I mean, they have more rides than Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and are fun for the whole family.  Water country water country have some fun have some fun!!

 

Sorry.  Waterparks suck, and your friend sucks in turn.  I would text her and say, “I was really looking forward to seeing you.  Can you maybe go to the cesspool another time?”
