- Wedding: October 2011
I am falling apart and struggling with the way my sister treats me. She is a drunk and has no remorse for her actions. I asked her to be my maid of honor and she accepted, I think I did so because it seemed like the right thing to do and I wanted us to be closer. Bad choice on my part, but was hopeful she had changed:( .
After much thought and consideration we decided to have a destination wedding. She believed she should have been involved in decisions that had nothing to do with her. Where we got married? The color bridesmaid dresses I picked? (which by the way all the girls picked whatever dress they wanted in a charcoal grey) I don’t care. She has been evil and thrown huge drunken tantrums and screwed my other bridesmaids over in regards to $$. She recently sent me this mean email. That has ridiculous statements and just lies.
For example she thinks our wedding will cost her $4500 to attend…one person. It isn’t even costing my fiance and I that much for 8 nights? I have never had to buy shoes from target for a wedding and I have no idea what she is referring to with the $150.
I know you all are dealing with your own issues and stresses but I am just heartbroken and feel like I am in a nightmare. This shoudl be a wonderfully fun time and I am miserable because of her. How do I cope with this?
Here is the letter:
So, as sorry as I am and as bad as I feel about the way I handled things in NE…you apparently have no problem going around talking about every single penny I’ve spent on myself for the past 2 months while sending me pics and showing up to grandpa’s dinner in shoes that cost more than I’ve spent on myself in like 5 months (yes, I looked them up when mom asked me how much I spent, $40, on a $215 BCBG dress that I could still re-sell and make a profit so u know)…it puts you on the same level as me. It doesn’t make you better just because you weren’t drunk and loud. FYI, I just got done cleaning mom’s house for the past hr because it was absolutely disgusting and smelled horrible…even though she’s been a shitty mom lately to everyone except you…
