My Maid/Matron of Honor is very organized and creative – 2 very important characteristics, as the Maid/Matron of Honor is responsible for planning showers, etc. We’ve been friends for 10+ years and she’s my Future Sister-In-Law. However… she is such a HATER. The kind of person who always vocalizes what they don’t like about something/someone. I feel like maybe some of this stems from insecurities about herself, but it’s difficult for me to not take it personally sometimes. It’s difficult because my 2 other BMs are very supportative and excited about my ideas, but my one go-to-gal is not.
Anyone else have to deal with an Maid/Matron of Honor trying to get you down?

Well, my Maid/Matron of Honor is the opposite so I can’t complain. All you can do is call her out on her attitude. Call her a debbie downer or tell her if she can’t say anything nice, etc. Let her know to her face in an obvious manner that her hater behavior is not acceptable. Ugh it’s so rude! Where are her manners?!

I’ve had that experience. I’ve also had a few close friends who were always kind and supportive to me, but talked so much trash about everyone else to me that I had to wonder what they were saying about me to others! I find that the best thing to do is just to say as little as possible about your plans…if they don’t know, they can’t criticize, right?
