- Wedding: August 2010
When talks of me and my fiance’s wedding started my two closest cousins/best friends let me know that they wanted to be my bridesmaids. I felt this was the irght choice at the time. We always spent so much time together and always had fun doing everything. we were basically insperable. I asked them to be my bridesmaids when my fiance and i chose a wedding date and they agrreed. For some reason I thot they would be the best bridesmaids ever! (they even fought over having the title of maid of honor) And did i forget to mention they’re sisters? well anyway, as planning started they grew very flaky. neither of them would answer their phone calls of were willing to discuss wedding plans. They were always reluctant to go try on bridesmaid dresses. It got to bad that i would go bridesmaid dress shopping alone and take pictures and send it to them to ask for their opinion but i would never get a response or the only response iw ould get were insults and profanity such as ” are you trying to make me look ugly on purpose?!” My search for their bridesmaid dresses just ended yesterday. it took me 9 months to decide on purchasing dresses for them. it freaked me out because my wedding is in less than 3 months! i decided to go with a color that i originally didn’t want because it was the only dress that came in their size that they would actually try on. I had one of the 2 bridesmaids with me at the time of the purchase so she was able to try it on. Her siste ron the other hand was reluctant to even drive to my house to try on the dress. she finally came over the next day to try on the dress. when i opened the dorr they didn’t even say hello. all they could say was ” why the h*ll am i here? i hate you and i hate dresses, i don’t wanna be here.” i didn’t wanna start a fight of seem demanding so i just handed her the dress and she insulted the dress saying ” you really think im THAT big?” i told her it would have been great if she went to try it on at the store but i just went with my gut feeling and bought the dress i thot would fit her. she slipped the dress over her jeans and gave a list of complaints. i didn’t know what to say. i was afraid that if i opened my mouth i would give them both a peice of my mind. Neither of them have ever offered to go to a dress fitting with me and are not romotley interested in attending my final dress fitting. They also complained about me choosing them to be bridesmaids because they figured bridesmaids had to take on too much responsibility. (mind you they havent done a single thing besides drive to the bridal shop 2 times ) They then yelled at me and told me i “never do anything right” because i went cake shopping with my fiance instead of them. ( i invited them to go but they decided to go shopping at the mall instead and got mad when i tried to share with them how tasty the cake was )What should i do? they have made the entire wedding planning process a complete hell. I am in a huge pickle now. the wedding is in less than 3 months and i am very unhappy with my bridesmaids. They have always been my best friends, their mom was like a second mom to be but they have recently made a complete 180 and turned into complete jerks. what should i do? everytime i try to confront them they think it’s a joke and laugh it off and give me an extra earload of complaints and insults….
