- Wedding: April 2013
Ok fellow Bees, I need your opinion.
I’ve been talking to my Maid/Matron of Honor, who is also getting married, and she is encountering a little bit of drama. She was asked to be the Maid/Matron of Honor in another friend’s wedding, and in turn, she asked the friend to be one of her bridesmaids, along with me. This friend had a fit over the fact that she didn’t ask her to be her Maid/Matron of Honor too (she asked her sister to be for pete’s sake!), and went into a silent moping fit, claiming that my Maid/Matron of Honor had promised – back in sophomore year of high school might I add – that they would be each other’s Maid/Matron of Honor, and people would be confused why she wasn’t (though really…no one is). My Maid/Matron of Honor has been trying so hard to be the gracious person and turn a blind eye to the baby fit.
The friend eventually apologized, and was acting excited again, but now she is being mopy and rude just like before. Since this is a mutual friend of ours, and I know her attitude, I told my Maid/Matron of Honor she needed to dump her as a bridesmaid and ask to be taken out of the friend’s wedding. She doesn’t need the drama and negativity with her own wedding to plan, and she has 3 other bridesmaids other than her Maid/Matron of Honor, and 2 junior bridesmaids to spare. But she’s having a hard time bringing it up. Her Fiance agrees with me, and one of his groomsmen is the mopy one’s Fiance.
So Bees, throw your opinion out there! What do you think she should do? Keep her and risk a meltdown before/at the wedding from this friend, or dump her and her role as the friend’s Maid/Matron of Honor before things get too out of hand?
