- Wedding: September 2013
This is totally weird to me but maybe I am off base ….
One of my BMs and one of my fiance’s groomsmen are engaged to each other (we’ve all been friends for quite awhile and the two of them actually introduced me and my fiance).
Anyway, we’re all pretty close and get along really well, but any time me or my fiance sends them a text about the wedding plans, they get all huffy and weird.
Example: I sent my Bridesmaid or Best Man texts regarding dress shopping, the shower, and some pics of accessories to get her opinion. It took her forever to respond (normally she’s a warp-speed texter) and when she does, she acts all short and pissy. She told me once she was a little upset that I didn’t call her personally about this stuff. HOWEVER, usually after I text, I will follow up with a phone call to be nice and to chat.
The reason I send stuff via text is so I can include all of the BMs at once. The girls are all spread out all over the place geographically and they have totally crazy/different schedules so I figured texting would be the easiest form of communication.
Again, I DO call as often as possible as well.
And for the past week, my fiance has been texting his one groomsmen (my BM’s fiance) about getting fitted for his tux (it has to be done within the next 2 weeks) and he has not answered.
My fiance works nights so texting or emailing is really the only way he can communicate. He is sleeping when everyone else is awake, so with texts and emails, the guys can respond without waking my fiance up and vice versa.
But this groomsmen reacts weird and offended by a text!
What is the deal here?!?!?!
The weirdest thing is that when we are all together to have dinner or go to a bar or whatever, everything is totally cool. We discuss wedding stuff, house stuff, everything without an issue ……
