- Wedding: June 2010
My friendship with a couple ladies from college begin to dwindle during my engagement. I made the mistake of asking my ladies when I first got engaged and so I was pretty much stuck with them. Movies and television really led me to be heartbroken. My ladies were not really interested in anything wedding related. I had to beg them to buy their dresses, no one threw a shower, bachel. party, nothing.
One friend in particular stopped asking me to do things during the engagement. She later told me that I had a “good man” so I shouldn’t want to go out. Meanwhile she broke up with the father of her child and began looking for replacement dads and her own husband. I know there was a twinge of jealousy but she really let it show.
For her best friends wedding she went all out with her hair, makeup, and nails. She bought her a gift and everything. For my wedding day, she wore pumps with her dress when everyone else had strappy dressy sandals. She didn’t do her hair, makeup, or nails. I didn’t ask them too but it’s like c’mon. She complained about my photographer the whole time because she wasn’t taking the traditional ‘line everyone up for posing’ photos and making sure everyone’s baby hairs were in place. She was constantly texting someone or adding statuses to her twitter and left after the ceremony without telling me to pick up her daughter. She acted bored the entire time. Even my husband is mad at her for the way she acted.
Anyway, i’m just venting but choose your bridesmaids carefully and forget etiquette. Kick a bridesmaid out if they can’t even pretend to be the least bit excited. Everytime I look at my pics I remember the way she acted.
