- Wedding: August 2012
Biatch, biatch, biatch…ok, that felt good.
Let me start off by saying that I’m not one of those brides that thinks the world revolves around them. Quite the opposite actually. I had one friend show up to my shower yesterday, which made me sad, but definitely not mad. Its summer and people are busy…I get that. Attending the wedding is more important.
Well, I had invited the best man’s wife to my shower, who I thought was my “friend.” Guess not. We’ve been on 2 vacations in the past year (along with many other gatherings) with the best man and his wife, the most recent at the end of April. While in the car to our vacation stop, the best man’s wife expressed excitement about receiving my bridal shower invitation. She was even disappointed to hear that some of my registry gifts had already been bought; guess she likes to have choices.
The real clincher was when we were visiting the couple last weekend for Memorial Day, and I had spent the entire day Monday shopping with my “friend.” Before we left their house, which is 3.5 hours away. I had asked the wife if I would be seeing her next weekend at my shower. She responded yes, they would in the area and had some stuff to do with her family, who lives by us, later the night of my shower. I had my mom mark her down as a “yes”, which was around $30 a plate at the place where we were having my shower. Seriously, why lie, if you had no intentions of coming. Save my mom the money.
I now realize she thinks nothing more of me than just her husband’s friend’s Fiance. Fine. I don’t need her friendship. I may have few friends, but they would never act this selfish. <Edited: sterotypes aren’t nice – I have removed my generalization.>
I haven’t said much to my Fiance about it, because I don’t want to come in between him and his best friend, so I’m venting here. I just hate the fact that I’ll have to continue to act nice to her, whenever I see her. Grrr…
I just don’t get people….
What would you do if this had happened to you?
