- Wedding: June 2010
so i asked my longest and best friend to be my maid of honer right after we got engaged, she has always been there for me! but soon after the engagement she seemed to be too busy to help, with anything!! i picked four more bridesmaids, my sister lives in washington state and has been helpful through support, my friend jen, who has offered to help every chance she gets, and my friend, we’ll call her M, who has done everything, planning my bachelorette party, gone on all my shopping events(dresses, shoes, lunchtime sprints through dillards), helped with my invitations, goes to the gym with me, listen’s to me cry and rant and rave. So in my mind, i was wishing i had picked M to be my Maid/Matron of Honor… but how did i tell my current moh that she hadn’t earned her keep?? well i didn’t, but today i recieved a call, from my moh… how are you? good… You? well, i need to tell you something and i don’t want to hurt your feelings… but i think you should make M your moh, she has really earned it, and i haven’t been exactly available all the time…
Even though she hadn’t been too helpful, the thoughtfulness to put herself out that way, and give up something she really wanted to someone who deserved it more than her. all this time i’ve been annoyed at her selfishness, and turns out, she needed to figure out the right way to tell me something that she thought would hurt my feelings. she is selfless and so appreciated!! and now the girl who really deserves it, gets it!
