@BridieBea:  I don’t/didn’t have anyone like that in my wedding. She sounds annoying and like the type of girl I would have beat up in highschool.

Woooooow you would hate me.  I’m an Anthropologie loving pink wearing kitten cuddling glittery girl who says “totally” too much and is going to a Taylor Swift concert next year.  I tend to overreact to things and cry pretty easily especially when stressed and I’ve had people say the exact same things to my face that you’re saying behind her back.  But there’s more to me than meets the eye and I bet there’s more to her too.  I think you like her more than you’re letting on because asking someone to be a bridesmaid out of pity is kind of nuts (and I bet she needs your pity a lot less than you think she does ;).  How bout ya stop hating and try to get to know this girl better, since she’s, ya know, YOUR BRIDESMAID.  Perhaps a Taylor Swift concert? 😀

Yep, I know her.  I have no advice for it other than to grin and bear it, though!

@BridieBea:  Could you find some common ground with her?

I am not sure I know anyone quite like her. I have some of the traits you describe.. like I am girly and love glitter and stuff but I also love contact sports and action movies and don’t wear pink very often lol. Maybe she has some non-annoying traits too?

Are there any tasks you could delegate to her that you would rather not do?

I guess it was nice of you to invite her to be a Bridesmaid or Best Man, but at the same time I hope you’re nice to her vs. making it apparent how much you dislike her, since really you didn’t have to invite her to do this and you’re only doing her a favor if she actually enjoys it.

Maybe you just need to get to know her better. It sounds like she may be very insecure and uses the girliness as a sort of coping mechanism. I’m imaginging Cyndi Lauper in the “Girl Just Wanna Have Fun Video” haha…

Everyone’s got to dance to their own drum, and just because you think someone beat is crap doesn’t mean your isn’t….I don’t know a single person so wise as to sit and judge others, so I would look at this exhuberant and refreshing person as an opportunity to learn some things. 

You certainly don’t have to decide that you “adore” everything she does or even like it, but I really respect the attitude she has for life, a vivacious and happy person who approaches things with zeal and vivacity…a fun and tilted perspective in a world of crushing reality and pessimism….so, take away the superficial distractions and get to the nuts and bolts of her. 

There’s good things, there’s bad things, just like a salad bar, take what you like and leave the rest.

I bake and decorate cupcakes, dress vintage every day, burlesque dance to old records and every second word I say is “fabulous”.

I am also not engaged yet, but have discussed it with my man. Though I have always drooled over wedding things even when I was single.

Would love to have your SIL be my bridesmaid! She sounds fun! lol

Lol, pretty sure I AM that girl, though I don’t have tantrums. 

Oh well! There are much worse people in the world. ^_^

@Nona99:  Agreed!!

 

This girl actually sounds really sweet to me, and like someone who has a really good aura.  I would just advise you to try and find some common ground, and to try and accept her quirks with love.  She is family, after all!

She…. Actually sounds just like me. Except I’m 23, not in my 30’s. But I fully expect I’ll still be that way in my 30’s. A coworker always tells me that I have “glitter syndrome.”
