- Wedding: March 2010
Ever since we were small, my mother has always told us that we had to be each other’s MOHs. There are only 2 of us, and yes we fight, mostly about stupid things like clothes or who’s gonna drive. She is younger than me by about 18 months, and I know from living with her for over 20 years that she is self-centered. Having her as my Maid/Matron of Honor pleases my mom and also saves me from offending any of my close friends by picking 1 and not the others, and I got to have all my best friends as my bridesmaids anyway.
We were both in a friends wedding last year, but my sis is supposedly her “best” friend, and I ended up helping her and doing sooo much more than my sister, I was really happy to help and I do love doing wedding things, but my sister was just like…ughHH we have to go there AGAIN…..
I went to go look for a dress in Miami with her and my mom. We were there for a week and I only went to 3 places. By the second stop she had had enough and left to go get coffee and was telling me oh hurry up, I have other shopping to do. So a few days later, after I had slept on it, I decided I wanted the first dress I tried on. It was from GroupUSA which is inside of a shopping mall, and when we got there, she said well, i’m going to forever 21, bye. Didn’t even care about me trying it on for the final make-sure-it’s-really the-one time, or picking the veil, shoes, etc.
And I’ve been telling her for a few days that we should go see the seamstress soon and ask her is she would be able to make the bridesmaid dresses, and yesterday i told her again, she said…”well GO then, it’s UR wedding…” and then we had a big fight about WHY SHE HAD TO GO, and NOT all the other bridesmaids. So I had to try to get some other ones that live here to go as well.
Sorry this is so long….. and the final straw that broke the camel’s back: one of my out-of-country bridesmaids made a comment on a pic i had on facebook, she said something like…”great pic, can’t wait to see u as the beautiful bride” which my sister commented after that…”you mean, Bridezilla!!”
I don’t understand why she is being so mean, it’s not like “it should have been her” -I’m older and I’ve been with my fiance for years longer than she’s been with her boyfriend. And I haven’t asked her to do ANYTHING except go with me to see the seamstress. And believe me I WON’T BE asking her to do anything else……
I guess I’m just sad that she doesn’t seem to care or isn’t excited like my other bridesmaids….I guess I’ll have to rely on them and not her.
Sorry I just had to vent…..anyone else have a not-so-great MOH???
