- Wedding: October 2010
Help! I can’t tell you how upset I am, well I am not sure if upset is the right words to describe how I am feeling. So let me put it this way… I am frustrated with my Maid/Matron of Honor. It seems that every time I plan something wedding related she is unavailable or cancels. When it came to shopping for my dress she was not able to come on one particular night, which just happens to be the night I found the dress and since I wanted my mom and daughter to see the dress and would love my Maid/Matron of Honor input, I scheduled another appointment for that Saturday at 10am. I asked my Maid/Matron of Honor to come along, but she was busy, ok I understood, as my request was last minute but it would have been nice for her to come. So the next wedding event was a lesson in diy invitations, she was scheduled to come with me and at the last moment cancel. Luckily my other best friend and bridesmaid was able to rearrange her schedule to come with me.
So you ask what has pushed me over my edge, for three weeks we have been planning a shopping trip to pick out the bridesmaid dresses, since the color of the bridesmaid dresses will ultimately determine the final colors to be used in our wedding it is imperative that we decide on this shortly, and once again I get a text message from my Maid/Matron of Honor stating that she can not come that something has come up. So off I go with my two bridesmaids, and we end up finding a dress that looks great on my size 6 girl and on my plus size sister. The problem is they don’t have the sizes in the store and they are on clearance, but a store in Toronto has them. So I send a quick text to my Maid/Matron of Honor, who replies, you can’t make a decision without me. So I quickly texted back that they are perfect they look great on and they are on sale. So she gives me her size, she is also a plus size and I am very concerned about my girls looking their best and since my sister is a bigger then my Maid/Matron of Honor, it should be fine. So we drove 45 minutes to the store only to find out that the dresses are not actually in the store but are to be delivered during the week. So, a little deflated we left.
So yesterday my Maid/Matron of Honor texts me and asks me what I am doing that evening and if I could take her to see the dress. I told her I could rearrange what I had planned and we could go, so I make arrangements for someone to watch my kids and 40 minutes before I am suppose to pick her up she cancels. I also got a call that 2 of the three dresses are in at the store in Toronto so my sister who is still a little worried about the dress fitting would like to go on Thursday to try on the dress before we make our final decision.
What should I do about my MOH? Just tell her this is the dress and deal with it or continue to try and take her to see the dress. They are only willing to hold the dresses until Saturday. For me doing different dresses on all the girls would drive me crazy since I am such a control freak, and if I did that I would have to approve each dress, this way it is easier, and did I mention that these dresses are 80% off!!!
