In My Humble Opinion, you haven’t done anything to make her uncomfortable to begin with and she’s just being selfish.  I would think she needs to put her big girl panties on and realize life isn’t all about her and she needs to be happy for her best friend.

But, I guess that doesn’t help you.  Maybe you can do something just you and her.  Dinner, your treat? Maybe not talk wedding and focus the whole night on what she wants to talk about.  Or at the end discuss the wedding, how important she is to you, and why you picked her to be Maid/Matron of Honor and maybe that’ll change her attitude.

I hope I don’t sound awful, but it is not your job to make her feel more comfortable.  She is acting out of jealousy and is being childish.  You sound like you are doing everything you can to make her feel like she is part of your big day and your life.  If my Maid/Matron of Honor acted like a 12 year old child on the day the is supposed to be so important (trying on dresses, right after you got engaged. etc) I would probably would have dropped her.  If she was your true friend, she would be happy for you and do what she could to make it special for the two of you.  I’m sorry you are going through this.  For you, I hope that your wedding is the most special day you have ever had, and that your Maid/Matron of Honor will come around and enjoy it with you.
