Do you have any sisters/female cousins that you could have instead?

That way you can tell her you want to keep your bridal party family 🙂

That’s really tricky! I guess you’ll just have to weigh up whether it’s worth damaging your friendship over not having her as your Maid/Matron of Honor…

Can your other friend be another bridesmaid and can you just tell them you’re not having a maid of honour, that they’re both equal bridesmaids. Then maybe your other friend can help reign in the friend you’re worried about if she makes it too much about her….

 

Sorry, I’m not much help 😛

Just tell your friend that your Fiance is actually really excited about planning with you (whether or not it’s 100% percent true that he wants to spend hours pouring over pictures of different shades of pink flowers) and let her take reign on things you’re comfortable with (bridal shower, bachelorette party, helping pick/make favors, etc)

Good Luck!

ETA: I don’t think it’s horrible to give her guidelines. And if she goes overboard, just say something like “that’s really not my taste, but let’s put it in the pile of ideas for when you get married” *insert innocent smile* /end discussion LOL

I agree with PP about guidelines. If you dont want to damage the friendship by not asking her, then I would do that. Give her certain things that will keep her attention and make sure you set up some rules UP FRONT. If youre not used to saying “No” or standing your ground, you will NEED to start now lol or it will get out of control!
