- Wedding: August 2013
Ok so here goes… Sorry item a bit long…
I got three bridesmaids,,, my longest friend of all time, my sister and my bestie Who is my moh…
My longest standing friend just got married last year in aug and I was a bridemaid for her… When I asked her to return the favour she was shocked as she didn’t think I would choose her as she isn’t really in my close circle of friends,,, she’s just a old friend and we have a lot of history. as far as I remember I didn’t bat an eye lid about her choice of dark purple in mid summer however she has been really horrid and inconsiderate about my colour choice considering she has just been a bride and should know what its like trying to please everyone.
i bought my dresses on eBay,, including my own and I asked for a pale pink for them ,I got more of a baby pink but I thought I can’t be picky and just sucked it up that they will be slightly brighter. she being the bigger side of a uk 14 was txting me explaining she was really nervous about a dress being picked out for her as special occasion dresses have alway been a big deal for her as she hate most parts of her body… I reassured her that I only picked dresses with her in mind and that I hope that she likes it..( I chose a maxi chiffon dress with a lace up back for those inches that would be gained or lost…) I took it to her house and heft it with her husband and awaited her reply.. To which She replied very coldly its fits the colour will grow on me…. I was really shocked and upset about this.
Weeks went by before I said anything… And when I did I explained that the comment on the colour really wasn’t helpful and I would have expected better coming from someone that has just been a bride and should know what it’s like… Anyway she ranted on at me explaining she has always hated pink and doesn’t understand why I’m so surprised…and while she was being honest she thought she would have a pop at me about the fact I wasn’t helpful leading up to her day ( what she seems to forget was that I’m a stylist and I blow dryed her mum and another bridemaids hair on the big day )she also compared the fact that she took her bm to a shop and ask them to choose and I gave her a picture… I myself had only a picture to go buy because I bought mine off the same site… so we resolved the issue by just trying to forget about what was said… However she’s still turning everything back round on her and her body” issues.
ive planned a bridal day because my friends didn’t get to see me pick my dress because I also bought mine off ebay and I want to see them all in there dresses and she’s once again is turning it back round on her and saying she only wants to try it on In front of me and not my other friends… What’s she going to be like on the day off she doesn’t want to wear it now? we’re only going to see her arms and chest which funny enough thats all u see when u wear a maxi dress.
She has also mentioned that the hairdresser price is expensive and she made a point of saying she will have to do overtime ( talk about make me feel guilty) and yet she has forgotten that I have sorted her and everyone else 2 nights accommodation for the wedding. I am now looking at getting it dyed to make it lighter of even buying new ones because I hate that fact she’s made such a fuss. I sick of Worring about how she’s going to be on the day. I don’t want her hiding I front of other people when the pictures are being taken… I want they to enjoy the day and the dress.
