Oh heck yes. I wanted to find the Bridesmaid or Best Man shoes now because there are a bunch of pretty flats in goold right now. I was able to find a ton of them for between $10-25, which was great. I showed them to everyone via a facebook message, and my sister responds with a $37 shoe that seriously looks identical to a $13 pair I found.

She called me that night and told me that it was my wedding and I shouldn’t bother with finding cheap shoes, and the rest of the girls could just ‘suck it up’ and pay more. Ugggh. This is the same sister who wanted me to change my colord because she doesn’t think she looks good in light blue, even though she’s worn light pink, orange and red (all colors she avoids) to her other friends’ weddings without complaint :P.

My sister.  Got engaged in March, picked a wedding date in June  – for Dec 31.  She calls me in Oct and tells me she can’t attend the wedding because she doesnt have a babysitter for her 6 and 4 year old.  When I offered a friend’s daughter who is 14 – she told me no one under 25 watches her kids.  She was expecting (I think) that I would tell her the kids could come, but I did not want kids at my NYE wedding.  And that was not going to change for her  – her two kids are brats and could not handle a wedding until after midnight. And I heard through the grapevine that her boyfriend wouldnt come to the wedding and she didnt want to come without a date, so that’s really why she wasnt coming. 

Three years ago same sister didnt attend my 40th birthday party for some still unknown reason. 

Sad thing is I didnt think about her not being at the wedding for one second.  That makes me feel guilty…

I’m convinced my brother’s wife has something mentally wrong with her.  She brags about herself day and night, when she really has nothing to brag about.  It has got to the point where my Fiance can’t be in the same room as her. 
I don’t know if I can deal with her for the rest of my life.

my older sister is VERY selfish and flaky. I didn’t ask her to be in the wedding b/c I KNEW that if she didn’t like something, she just wouldn’t do it and then we’d get into a fight. She’s the kind of person who won’t do anything unless there’s something in it for her. We basically had to bribe her to come to Christmas by buying her a new $300 dress to wear to the wedding (and also to guarantee that she doesn’t show up in “club clothes” like she did to my graduation: cropped tank, mini-skirt, platform flip flops). Did I mention she is OLDER?

Mt sister is very dramatic and selfish. She has this stupid hairy ugly huge dog that she takes with her every where she goes. My lovely SIL was going to be my bouncer for the dog at my wedding. She was supposed to be my Maid/Matron of Honor, but the military had other plans. Now I am sure my sister will show up with her dogs to my wedding, as she did to my brothers. Then, when I kick her dogs out, she will play the victim. Too freaking bad. She is always about her. She is also lazy, she is on disability (for what I have not figured out) and she had a great job with a great company, but I guess it is easier having the gov’t pay you to stay home. Oh, and the kicker, nothing is ever her fault. Every company in the world is out to get her, even the Mayor of our city supposedly hates her for falling on the city steps and suing the city (like he cares). Oh, I forgot she is sue happy. She even sued walmart because they banned her for bringing in that hairy dog, and she won. OMG, I could go on for days. I am absolutely dreading that I have to invite her to our wedding as is the FH.

Oh my goodness!!!!

I totall know ALLL about dramatic family members! My family is like a bad episode of Jersey Shore meets Desperate Housewives. It is at the point were I can’t even have the big traditional wedding I always wanted because I know someone will try to start something or it everyone will sit there in icey silence without saying anything. No thank you! Hey anyone with crazy families want to give me help?? I’m trying to figure out a nice way to word Just Married on a postcard to both extended Family and immediate that lets it be known that I am married but without looking like an invitation and without directly saying “Hey sorry but I just didn’t want you there”

@jo.lee: Do we have the same sister?  Almost identical tantrums about dress color and shoe color (I’m just letting my girls wear whatever silver strappy shoe they want)…

Let’s just say that the ringtone for my sister is the “I’m a Tumor” song from Family Guy…

I think all of our sisters might be the same person. I am seriously considering not having any Bridesmaid or Best Man to avoid having to work with my sister or have to explain why she isn’t one of them… I am preparing for WWIII. I dread the attitude about every decision and then the passive aggressive behavior that will definitely follow. FH is ok with no Bridesmaid or Best Man too 🙂 I love him!

OMG. My sister is SO dramatic.  My sister is 20 and very different than I was at 20.  She’s immature, unorganized, without drive, etc.  She got pregnant when she was 18 and told me that my parents couldn’t come to my law school graduation because she would have just have had her baby! WTF?! I mean, have the guy who knocked you up stay with you…law school graduation only comes once.

 

Now that she know I want her to be my Maid/Matron of Honor, she goes and gets tattoos….ON HER CHEST!!!!  SHE KNOWS I HATE TATTOOS!  PLUS, THEY LOOK HORRID!!!!!!! Now I either have to have a really high cut dress or ask her not to be in my wedding party.  It’s a difficult place to be.

@KendraJ: Have her wear makeup to cover them! Ugh I would hate that. There is a pray that works really well too, it’s for legs, but I sprayed my sister down with it for her wedding, lots of layers, but it worked! You can find it at drug stores too, super cheap.

@Phofe2774:  We’re having a small wedding and the early quick decision was no bridesmaids or groomsmen.  I can’t tell you how easy it is not having to worry about them!  Especially my sister, who is throwing a fit over coming to our destination wedding.  Well guess what sis…you don’t have to come!  But she insists she has to so she can make my life miserable.  We already had to choose a wedding date around her schedule, the additional whining of how we aren’t taking family into account and how much cheaper her wedding was is starting to get to me.  I asked if I could borrow my grandmother’s ring to honor her at the wedding, like my mom had let my sister borrow.  I got a response 4 months later letting me know she had graciously DECIDED to let me borrow it just for the wedding. 

 

Whew, that was a vent.  I could get a much longer post regarding just this topic 🙂
