- Wedding: July 2012 - The Gables Inn, Santa Rosa, CA
Ok, this is a spin-off vent from another bee’s post about her racist Mother-In-Law, and I didn’t want to thread-jack but it reminded me of the other day and I just have to get it off my chest because it REALLY bothered me!!!
So, last Friday I went in to try on my dress after the first round of alterations, and the seamstress was running late, so there was a little bit of a backup and myself, my sister (my MOH), and another bride and her Maid/Matron of Honor were all waiting– the bride appeared to be about 5-6 months pregnant and was just trying on her dress for a final fitting and was taking it home with her, so I told her to go ahead and go before me, I didn’t mind waiting.
Well, apparently, she had found out she was pregnant after purchasing the dress, and thus needed to do the alterations. She had elected to not tell her guests she as pregnant and had added an extra petticoat to help poof out the dress a bit to hide some of her bump– honestly, unless she tucked her hands under her belly, you never would have known. My sister feels the need, in the VERY small shop, to turn to me and loudly tell me to turn my phone on silent, puzzled, I asked her why? She replied with “Because I want to text you something, that’s why!” (again, very loud and in full view of this bride & her Maid/Matron of Honor, not to mention the seamstress. So, I pulled my phone out and flipped it on silent. She then proceeds to text me all kinds of judgemental comments about how this bride is preggo and trying to hide it, and how she doesn’t miss the “knocked up brides” (she used to work at a bridal salon) and all kinds of other very rude comments. After the first few I stopped looking at my phone, hoping she would get the hint to stop. But of course, that just makes her start SAYING some of them out loud, very thinly masked. Like commenting to the other Maid/Matron of Honor about how the bachelorette party much have been way cheaper with the bride having one in the oven, etc. I was mortified! And I was pissed!
Seriously, I don’t know how my sister turned into such a judgmental person since we were raised in the same house with the same values, but somehow she is, and I HATE it! This is just one instance of her horrible behavior, she is also incredibly racist and homophobic as well. As I mentioned in my other post, I will be limiting her exposure to my kids as a direct result of her behavior and beliefs on these things, but I feel so terrible for my nephew who has to grow up in such a toxic environment.
