I’m sure you’re confused…
It’s honestly nothing, just one of those things that makes you go, “who the actual F*CK do you think you are??”
Long story short, my FI’s best man who lives out of state and I’ve only met once has a daughter with his EX-fiance. I’ve never met her or the kid, but I hear she’s total trash. For the sake of the story, we’ll call ex “Sara” and daughter “Anna”. Anyway, best man says to FI the other day, “Sara wanted me to relay a message to you: why isn’t Anna the flower girl?” Apparently, she gave him some sh!t about it and was highly annoyed her daughter was not asked.
First of all, WHO THE F*CK ARE YOU, WE HAVE NEVER MET! Not to mention, she’s supposed to be a real piece of work. Probably better we never meet face to face. Secondly, how does she know the position hasn’t already been filled by a niece or cousin or anyone? We’re actually not having any kids in the wedding or attendance. I said to my FI, “Tell him to tell her if she wants an answer to that, she can ask THE BRIDE.” I mean, it’s not even a reason to get upset. Just…WHO do you think you are?? MEHHHHHHH.

Your post literally made me “LOL”! Talk about tiger lady! You went ALL the way in! As for the ex-fiancee… well I’m hoping she does have the balls to ask you and I patiently wait for the update if she does. GET EM!

CocoClassic: Like I said, it’s not even worth getting upset over b/c she literally is no one to me, but the fact that she gave her ex (our best man) sh!t about it and felt the need to “relay a message” to my FI?? WHAT!?
It provided a little excitement for my otherwise boring week. I said to my FI, “Why do you tell me these things? You know I get crazy!”

BurlapnLace: Wait so this girl isn’t even with the best man anymore? So isn’t invited to the wedding? That makes it even weirder lol.

I have 2 gorgeous nieces age 2 and 4 who live in a different state from you. Why aren’t THEY your flower girls? Huh? Huh? I am so insulted you never asked my nieces, whom you didn’t even know existed, to be in your wedding. FOR SHAME! By the way, they usually run and yell in church because their church is very casual and kid-friendly. They will liven your wedding up!

BurlapnLace: I hate people like that. Clearly the work revolves around them. I like your reply though!

Wow…that’s just absurd. Some people have no respect for etiquette or basic manners. Personally, I don’t want a ring bearer or a flower girl because I don’t want all my cousins shoving their children down my throat for the role, and it’s always more hassle to get the kids in line and make sure no one cries. I’m sure they’re adorable in other Bees’ weddings, but I just prefer to keep it simple.
What blows my mind is that this chick isn’t even invited to the wedding! Maybe she’s hoping her daughter would be the flower girl in some crazy scheme to get back with the best man? I’m just facepalming at the craziness of it all.

My crazy sister in law has been campaigning for her daughter to be someone’s flowergirl for years. She prompted her daughter to tell her grandmother that she was available to be the F/G at her cousin’s wedding; when the bride finally found out, she was furious. Then she suggested that she ask my daughter. Mine had trouble keeping a straight face, because: she’s seen the girl all of 5 times in her life, our family has adult-only weddings, and she was 10.5 at the time. (When my daughter marries this fall, the kid will be in 9th grade and she isn’t even invited). The SIL is well known for having a narcissistic sense of entitlement, but this is the 2nd post I’ve read on the Bee today, about arm-twisting to be a F/G. It’s not Prince Harry’s wedding, people!

It is very interesting how a wedding makes other people think that this is an opportunity to showcase their kids any chance they get.
My sister has a daughter who sings, dances and does so on stage a couple of times a year at concerts at so forth. She asked me if her daughter could sing at our reception – in front of her daughter, so I wouldn’t say no! I said no.

BurlapnLace: are you sure the best man isn’t asking because he wants to know, and just blaming the ex? Seems a bit odd to me, even if she did ask him he didn’t have to ask your FI.
