Wouldn’t that be fitting!!! >:D

I appreciate your kind words. Yes, etiquette is important to me only because of the way I was raised…my mom was horrified by this girl’s behavior but she would be equally disappointed in my “display of values” if I backed out last second. The wedding is in less than a month. This friendship has been on the rocks for awhile now but it comes as no surprise to me that she couldn’t find anyone else to “fill the spots” you know? And can you believe that 4 of her bridesmaids didn’t even show up for the shower? It just feels like one big waste of time and a big disaster. I can’t wait to wash my hands of her after the big day.

Wow – some people are unreal!

that is so sad that you have to pretend until the big day then disappear as her friend… like I said before, I pity the groom
It’s realy mature of you to go through with the responsibilities as bridesmaid and I hope you have a wonderful and great day at her wedding!

Oy. I can only imagine the fireworks if anyone dared to put the diva in her place. I would talk to her if I felt that she was behaving oddly/out of character but sadly…ever since I agreed to be in her bridal party, she has slowly morphed into this crazy bride from hell. I guess I intend to just cut her out of my life ASAP! Thanks for all your kind words!
yes and no. She has always had this sense of entitlement that is entirely out of line. She has always been a really wild and crazy, attention-seeking kind of girl. Part of me wonders if she only got engaged in order to have more of the spotlight on her. It’s just been escalating and escalating over the years, and I’ve known her my entire life.

You are a very classy gal… so I appreciate that you will not back out with less than 30 days to go.
As someone who has been married before (30+ Years ago) I can give you some good news and say that it is “natural” for friends to change after there is a wedding… folks just drift apart.
So it won’t be difficult for that to happen if that is your desire… lol, once again the classy answer, as she’ll more than likely never have a clue WHY

Seriously! That is what I was thinking

No I don’t! My bridesmaids are all my best friends and I honestly expect pretty much nothing from them! I even let them pick out their own black dresses to wear. Anything they do for me is so touching and I appreciate it beyond belief! I just want them to be there standing next to me on my big day, they aren’t my slaves and don’t HAVE to do anything for me.

how sad 🙁 I would not give her a wedding gift thats for sure, you have gone way above and beyond, your gift was the shower! jsut get her a card and be done with it!
What a B***H, I can not imagine treating anyone this way, how funny would it be if nobody showed up for her wedding due to how she has been acting!

She sounds like a former friend of mine. Emphasis on the former.
A word of warning- it will get WORSE on the wedding day.
If I were you I would run, and run very fast.
There is nothing in this world worse than an entitled brat. She needs slapping. (Ok, so perhaps not literally… I don’t want to condone violence) 😉

Unbelievable. Why do some girls think being a bride means they can be a brat? Especially to friends and family?? It sucks that you had to experience her true colors.

That really hurt me to read it even though I was not the one throwing that shower. I am really sorry you had to go through that.

If this were me, she would become a former friend after the wedding.

I don’t think you ranted enough! You deserve wayyyy more of a rant than that for the money you put out. I think you should go back, edit that post up there, and really let it out. you are wayyyy too nice. Even your rant is elegant. You are a stellar friend, classy and I know, you probably won’t do that. But you should.
That sounds like the nicest shower and your efforts are not unnoticed with the other girls.
Hang in there… 🙂
