i’m sorry they shut you down.  i can totally understand you wanting to do a little recap and discuss your lovely day with them.  especially as they attended, you want to hear their thoughts.  it’s not like you’re bragging to them.


as for T, some people are just nasty and while you can’t do anything to change that, you’ve done the right thing by limiting her presence in your life.  i’m sorry she was such a debbie downer but try to not let it bother you.  it only hurts you in the end.

Sounds to me like she is jealous of you!

Girls who spend their time doing things like that (saying negative things about others’ special days) usually have low-self esteem or other insecurity issues.

And your friends should have stood up for you more!  I couldn’t imagine just sitting there while somebody – anybody! – bashed my friend’s big day.  

What the heck?

Sounds like T loves to stir the pot and knows how to ruffle your feathers.  🙁  I’m sure her comments were even more biting because of what happened with your family members.

It’s upsetting because T’s behavior is hurtful.  Just remind yourself that you know what a negative person she is and I’d do whatever I could to steer clear from her (even if that means missing out on the big group events and planning smaller events with people you actually enjoy seeing).

@JesskaLynn:  ditto on the jealousy thing!  Unfortunately, SIL does this to me…she actually called me a slut in so many words the other day!  I know she does this because I get along great with her family and she had a hard time getting used to having another woman in her life.

I know how you feel with having people in your group that you don’t generally care for.  Just keep in mind that you only have to deal with her occassionally.  Why don’t you try and have a smaller get together with only a few of the closest to you from that group.  Maybe the ones who were more sensitive to your feelings that night?  Everyone deserves a recap about how wonderful their wedding was!  Chin up!  I’m sure it was fabulous!
