Well..if I weren’t close to her and didn’t intend on being friends, I’d step down.  Unfortunately, you’ve already put a good deal of money into it.

lol, you should totally bring your fi, and if she asks “why’d you bring him?” you should just say, “oh….you mean you’re ACTUALLY enforcing etiquette???? I thought you weren’t since you haven’t in the past”, but I’m a total bitch with things like that, you sound like a nice girl.

Yeah, I read #1 and I was like “meh, not so bad” then I read #2 and I was like “wow…”. I read #3 twice out of disbelief, and by the time I got to #5 it has been confirmed that this is much more than poor etiquette and this girl is flat out a selfish, spoiled little brat who has no sense of tact. (Sorry for the bluntness.)

Wow… the way people think they can be behave – and really probably get away with everyday – just blows my mind.

I’m sorry you are dealing with this woman.

The others may revolt if you led the way, but that might convince her to stop treating you all so bad too.  Suggest either doing your own hair or finding your own salon to get it done at a reasonable price and see how she reacts.  If she flips out, I say you have every right to drop out of the party.  Her wedding is in the fall, you aren’t that close to the date, and if she has uneven sides so what?  She made her bed and now she has to lie in it.

Oh please, tell us the other stuff that you left out. This girl seems too bad to be true. You’re an angel for putting up with it so far.

I’m speechless. This girl is beyond rude…this is insanity! I would have dropped out a long time ago!

I would also like to know what else this girl has done.  I had a somewhat similar situation with hair (but not $200, wow!) and just told the bride that I couldn’t afford it.  As far as dropping out, the wedding is in the fall, so she has time, big deal about uneven sides, she hasn’t made up programs, and I don’t see it as sticking her much (althought if several people did, that might be what she needs to realize she needs to change herselfish ways).

Wow…rudness abounds! To not even send a wedding invite to the wedding party and not invite them with guests is ridiculous! Plus requiring $200 for hair is out of control!

I have visions of this person going through an etiquette book and checking off the ones she has violated so far, with a view toward working on violating the rest!

Wow – what a doozey! “Bring your checkbook”???? That’s BEYOND rude! And why would you advertise the fact that some guests aren’t invited for the dinner? Very odd.

I think you should encourage all of the other BMs to sit down with her and gently explain that the way she’s acting is hurting the people around her.  Telling people they’re not invited to dinner is extremely rude and hurtful, especially to the Fiance of one of her bridesmaids!!  How awful!  Generally I am pretty forgiving of brides because I know how stressful wedding planning can be and how fed up you can get with people always expecting things from you, but that doesn’t seem to be the case here.  This girl clearly cares more about her wallet than her friends, and that’s just not cool.  As her bridesmaids, you all need to set down with her and intervene so that she still has some friends left when this thing is over!

I think this girl needs to have a reality tv show because seriously, I’d love to see this all go down… How does she function in the real world without getting her butt kicked every day?!

I’m not much of an etiquette person, but this is insane. What is her problem? Is she always like this? I don’t know if she’s in your wedding or not, but someone this rude would not be someone I would even want to invite. Does this bridal salon do celebrity hair or something?- because $200 is ridiculous!
