- Wedding: July 2013
My Matron of Honor like anyone elses is my best friend, we have been friends for ten years and been through everything together and I can honestly say there was no question in my mind that I wanted her next to me on the most important day of my life. She and her husband didn’t think they were ever going to have a baby becuase of serious female medical issues she has. They had tried for four years even after being told it would happen before they completely gave up. Just three weeks after I got engaged she found out that she was pregant!!! I was sooo excited for her I couldn’t help but cry with her, I always knew she would be an excellent mom and felt every bit of her pain when she was told that it would never happen for her. She is like a fourth daughter to my parents and truly is part of my family as I am to hers. I have shopped and shopped with her for baby things and mommy to be gifts, but I feel like my wedding isn’t as important to her as being pregnant is. Don’t get me wrong having a baby is a HUGE deal but I feel like getting married is just as big of a deal. I don’t know what to say to her to make her see how much this sucks without hurting her feelings or making her feel like I don’t care about what she is going through. I took her with me as part of the group to help me look for my wedding dress, and all she wanted to talk about was her up coming baby shower. My mom knows how much this bothers me, because that day should have been mine and I feel like it was made to be about her. I just wish she could step back and walk in my shoes for a littel bit. 🙁 What should I do?
