- Wedding: June 2010
So, I am getting married on Saturday!! I know I should be focusing on other, more important things but this is kind of bothering me. One of my bridesmaids STILL HAS NOT picked up her dress (the wedding is on SATURDAY) and hasn’t responded to the last 3 phone calls. She will need to have it altered but I don’t think there will be any time, which is fine if she wants to wear her dress that way, but why hasn’t she picked up her dress yet?? It’s been weeks since the dresses have come in. She also canceled on the rehearsal/rehearsal dinner and ever since I got engaged, she’s basically stopped talking to me even though I’ve tried to reach out to her and ask her if everything is ok.
My Maid/Matron of Honor has been pretty great throughout the whole process, but she’s kind of dropped off the face of the earth in the last two weeks and we were SO busy with wedding stuff last weekend. It would have been nice if she called over the weekend to see if I needed anything, considering that the wedding is on Saturday and we had SO MUCH TO DO and I found out later that she spent all weekend hanging out with friends and running errands with her boyfriends’ family. I’m not saying that she should have devoted all weekend to me, but I’m a little hurt that the wedding is a few days away and she didn’t even think to call and see how it’s going. (I know, I sound crazy right??)
Another Bridesmaid or Best Man flaked on the bachelorette weekend at the last minute, didn’t know when the shower was so she didn’t show up until the very end when the other girls called her, etc.
I know I probably sound like the biggest bridezilla in the world, but honestly I’m just a little hurt by how my friends have acted throughout this. The only one that I’ve talked to about any wedding stuff is my Maid/Matron of Honor, which is probably why I’m even more sensitive about her than maybe I should be.
I know I’m probably being over-sensitive to all of this, but it would be nice if my friends showed a little excitement about my wedding and acted like they care. I realize that no one is going to care as much as I do (and they shouldn’t!) but I just feel a little hurt by how certain friends have been acting. There are times when I really wish I had a much smaller wedding party, or no wedding party at all!! Any perspective about this would be great.
