Thanks for the UPDATE with Reply # 17
IMO, that is the game changer… him being in the Bridal Party… HER Bridal Party, and being essentially a male-version of the Maid/Matron of Honor (Man of Honour)
Therefore, I wouldn’t read a whole lot into it.
It would be like any Bride getting ready for her big day… many Brides starting very early in the morning…
And certainly bringing / arranging for Breakfast is a very common role for the Maid/Matron of Honor (can anyone say Mimosas ?)
The Bride probably didn’t mean any offense, she just might have not said it well… considering her Bridal Party is a bit outside of the norm…
“Can you come early, bring Breakfast, we can have a bit of family time… and no offence but can Nick come up later with Dad?”
I think the confusion is in the wording… family time is slightly different than saying Bridesmaids time… but then again, he’s not a maid is he (and I sincerely doubt he’ll be fulfilling the role in the usual way… doubt he’s going to be in the room the whole time she’s in her undies or getting dressed)
You are right in further UPDATES by saying you are going to let it go… and just make other arrangements to fit the now altered schedule.
That would be the HIGH ROAD in my opinion for this situation. I mean, maybe she didn’t mean anything against you whatsoever, she’s just focussed in on Bride World… (lol, happens)
Better to just go along with it all… rather than rock the boat… because if she didn’t mean it in a malicious way, and you do say something, well quite frankly you’ll look like the “My Brother’s Freaked Out Fiance”… and ya don’t need that.
It is her day… best to just get along as she’ll soon be family anyhow.
If there are going to be ISSUES between you 2 gals … there will be bigger ones to come down the road I am sure.
Just my 2 cents
