- Wedding: September 2010
When FI and I got engaged last year in September (getting married in two months!) I knew immediately who I wanted to ask to be my bridesmaids (my sister/MOH, FSIL, and my two best friends that I grew up with). Well, one of my “best friends” has been anything but. Shortly after we got engaged she began dating this guy that she met on MySpace. And to be perfectly honest, I really don’t like him. He’s one of those people who ALWAYS has to be right about everything, is an expert on everything, his opinion is fact (which is probably my biggest pet peeve), and he brags on EVERYTHING that he does. And I’ve only hung out with him twice, which might not be enough time to really get to know somebody, but I really don’t like what I’ve seen so far. And the worst part is that her entire personality has changed since she started dating him. He lives about an hour away and doesn’t drive so she goes up every weekend to see him and then turns around and complains that I never spend time with her. She keeps making comments about how much money FI and I spend on sushi (which isn’t a lot and isn’t any of her business). And she makes snide comments about where we’re having our reception and how much it costs, the computer we bought, our honeymoon, and other random stuff.
I just found out that she’s giving my sister/MOH grief about planning my shower. Just arguing about everything and having to have the last word (JUST LIKE HER IDIOT BOYFRIEND!)
Our venue has an upstairs dressing room area for me and the girls to get ready before the ceremony. And I did give her a plus one since she is a bridesmaid. But now, she wants him to tag along (since he doesn’t drive) to the reception hall with her while we’re trying to get ready and take pictures. And I told her flat out “No” that he absolutely could NOT hang with us while we were getting ready and that he couldn’t hang out downstairs at the reception hall because they were going to be setting up and the guys were going to be taking pictures there once they finished getting ready at FBIL’s house. Her response? “Taking pictures doesn’t take that long.”
I have had it! I am so ready to scream at this point. I don’t know what else to do. I will be a b**** and go bridezilla if she even attempts to show up with him in tow on my wedding day and kick his a** out of there. I feel like she made a commitment to me by saying yes to being a bridesmaid so I should get one day of her getting ready with the group and taking pictures (which go along with being a bridesmaid!) and she can babysit her boyfriend after it’s all over.
