My (eight-years-younger-than-me) sister can be rather, well, self-absorbed.
Recently she asked me how many of her friends she could bring to the wedding. I told her she could have a plus-one. She made a face and made a sarcastic comment about my generosity.
I managed to politely point out that she could have her friends at her own wedding.
Later I had a moment when I seriously considered asking her not to be maid-of-honor because I don’t think she’s reliable and thoughtful enough to be there for me. Then I remembered that I do have friends who will be there for me (who don’t want to be part of the official wedding party) and decided against it.
Just needed to vent and see if anyone else out there can relate!

Not the same but still sister drama. My (eight years older than me and still unmarried) sister is planning my entire wedding and I’m not even “officially” engaged yet. She either shoots down my ideas or doesn’t even bother asking me for them, and worst she is definitely planning what she would want and our styles are VERY different. I definitely want her to be my Maid/Matron of Honor but the way things are going now there WILL be a showdown once the ball really gets rolling. Hope things start looking up for you and that your sister realizes it will be her day someday. 🙂

The closer it get to my wedding, the more drama i have with one of my sisters. She’s four years older than me, and she is totally showing how jealouse she is and not just that im getting married. I asked my younger sister to be Maid/Matron of Honor, and that didn’t go over well, now she’s upset that i don’t have any jobs for her to do (b/c i kow she won’t even attempt to do them right) and it goes on and on…

The annoying thing is she doesn’t want to get married so she knows that means no wedding. So I’ve instead of doing the whole, “you’ll get ____ when you have a wedding of your own” it’s “well, if you don’t want to get married then I guess you won’t get ______.” What else do I say?
She’s just used to being the baby and getting the attention, having things about her, etc. Thank God for my online bridal support group (you all!).

Sweetie–we all have sisters like that. I had to follow up with my younger sister 4x to get her to pay for her Bridesmaid or Best Man dress. I was obviously a little frustrated and the owner of the bridal shop said, “There’s one in every bunch and it’s usually a sister. We’re used to it!”. She also puts down everything I pick. Luckily we live thousands of miles away from each other…
