@FutureMrsKenward:  No. You are not mean. Wedding dress shopping traditionally is a Mother/Daughter/Sisters event. She is being insecure and overreactng.

If your wedding is so “lame” does she still want to be MOH??

Frankly I would tell her that she is being mean, you love your mother, this was HER time with you and you would appreciate it if she had a better attitude.

Uh, this girl sounds extremely immature, and not really that good of a friend! And just a brat! Who is she to tell you who you should go wedding dress shopping with? I took my mom, my mom was the most important person that I share this with in my eyes. She’s my MOTHER, this girl is a friend. And then to call you names? immature

#1- WOW! I LOVE your dress! That is STUNNING!

#2- Your friend is being a little psycho. And by a little, I mean a LOT!

@FutureMrsKenward:  I guess if your wedding is that lame and she seems to hate your mother that much perhaps she shouldn’t be a MOH. I know if it were me and my BFF made a big deal about going dress shopping with my mom, she wouldn’t be my MOH anymore.

Your dress is really pretty!  And based on this and your other thread, your MOH sounds like a baby.  I can’t believe she is 27… she sounds like a junior high girl and anyone who WAS a junior high girl at some point knows that this is not a compliment.

Serious talk, are you sure you want her to be your maid of honor?  She is already putting such a damper on things and there’s a year left to go… you want to have fun and have people around you who are excited and happy for you, not second guessing you and being selfish.

I love your dress!

Anyway, she reacted poorly.  There are a lot of people who want to be part of the experience, and it can’t always include the entire wedding party.  I have multiple bridesmaids who are out-of-state and couldn’t attend dress shopping, including my MOH.  I was bummed and I’m sure they were too, but everyone was happy and supportive when I found the dress.  I’d let your MOH calm down and see if things improve.  If not, I’d reconsider who to have as the MOH altogether.

@FutureMrsKenward:  Wow, what a brat!  My mother was the only one who helped me pick out my dress… 

My MOH lived in Texas, but still… it was for me and my mom.  And really – for me.  Since it’s my dress and all.  You probably missed out on a whole bunch of drama.

@FutureMrsKenward:  You dress is beautiful and your MOH is annoying. Does she have a bad relationship with her mom? She’s being selfish and immature. Sure, lots of people take their Bridal Party to their dress appointment, but not everyone does and there’s no reason for her to throw a fit about it.
