I am planning my sisters entire wedding. Including bridal shower, bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner and wedding. She is having 7 bridesmaids including myself. I had asked not to be in the wedding since all the bridesmaids are 20 years younger and I would of been fine in a different role. Our Mother is deceased. She wants me to be Maid/Matron of Honor. Her best friend was just married last month and my sister was Maid/Matron of Honor. She did the traditonal stuff such as shower and bachelorette party but had no say so in actual wedding since the bride and her Mom planned everything. As it should be!!! The friend which I love dearly keeps coming up with surprise things to do at the wedding. She had a photo booth set up at her wedding ( Not actual booth but back drop and props) We are doing a vintage photo booth back drop and hiring a seperate photogragher. She called me all upset stating that her and her Mom had already hired the same people they used as a SURPRISE. You do not surprise people on the wedding day!!! What she had was not even what my sister would want or even have the same thing her friend had 3 months before. She said they would come up with a different idea. She texted me the next day saying they had decided to hire the videographer. We already have a friend doing it. I have never heard of a bridesmaid or any one else getting involed in the ACTUAL wedding stuff. She has never asked what we needed. I did ask her to plan a friend shower since we are doing a family/bridesmaid only shower. I asked my sister if she wanted her to plan the bachelorette party and she wants me to do it. Am I overreacting? I just think this is very weird!
THANKS FOR LISTENING!
