- Wedding: October 2013
We are 5 months away from our wedding. I gave myself lots and lots of DIY projects to save on some costs.
Everyone that I mentioned my plans of the items I was going to make (like candles as favour gifts and invitations) had volunteered to help. Which is great but I didn’t really feel right about pushing too much on people and tried to do more stuff myself. I know everyone has a life and if I felt that I could complete something on my own I would do just that.
My Bridesmaid was really helpful with part of the invitation making and I so appreciated that… took her out to dinner as a thank you.
My Maid/Matron of Honor 3 weeks ago told me that she really wants to help with the invites (I am only about 30% done and still tons of work left) so I asked her last week if she is available on the weekend to come over at all. She seamed excited and said Saturday would work best for her so we made plans on that day.
I figured we will have dinner first and then we can work ok the invites. I also picked up her bridesmaid dress at the store and she was going to pick it up from me.
Well Saturday came and it was a busy day… but I rushed my Fiance to get everything done that we needed to because I still needed to make dinner as Maid/Matron of Honor was coming over at 6.
Well, 6 came and no Maid/Matron of Honor.
At 7 I figured we will have dinner and I messaged her and called her but with no luck.
So by 8 I figured that she is not coming and it was too late for me to start working on them and actually didn’t really feel like it anymore.
The next day she messaged me saying that she was at her sisters house and she forgot she was supposed to come over.
I didn’t say anything but ”ok, no worries”. But it really kind of hurt that she forgot.
So I don’t really feel like asking her anymore to help with this stuff anymore because I am not sure if she will come… this is not the first time it happened in our friendship.
In her message to me she didn’t even ask if we could maybe do it on another day, just said that she forgot and sorry.
So I have tons to do and will try to do it this week but it just kinda sucks.
