- Wedding: June 2011
she is younger and just got married in july. I paid for half of her wedding and literally planned it, coordinated the whole thing, the rehersal, ordered her bm dresses on MY CC…made her cake, made her boquets and centerpieces, booked her venues, got the prices down, decorated, favors, hair, makeup, a discount on her dress, veil and alterations (bc i work in a bridal shop) hand made her invite,, did her entire shower…put it this way all the bitch had to do was show up. She made my life a living hell throughout the entire process. kept placing orders with no regard to how much more it was going to cost me. I had to deal with her white trash inlaws on a daily basis (who turned out to be quite nice just inlaw-zillas during the planning process) when it was over, she said she learned everything that goes into a wedding and assured me when i get married next year..as my sister and maitron of honor she will do everything she could to make my wedding as perfect as i made hers. Really bc i hadn’t noticed…i have bought my own invitations, my own favors and have planned my own bachlorette. why b/c she hasnt done it and i wont leave it up the the bms..its not their job. She came with me to order her dress and only brought $40 with her..i guess she still has her habit of relying on sissy to foot the bill…..um ive been engaged for 2 1/2 years..i was totally not mad that she swooped in and had a shotgun wedding before mine…nope didnt care..bc when it was mine turn i really thought she would be there.
not so much
i planned a girls night for me and the wedding party to put together the favors for the shower and the shower invitaions. bought a cake, apps, chips and stuff for martinis…imagine my dissapointment after 6 of my nine bms text me to say they cant make it last minute….i call my sister “where are you” …jen-“oh i dont want to come” julie-im sorry what” jen- oh i never said i was going to do allt his stuff like of course ill be at the wedding and bachlorette but im not hanging out with you and your friends i dint even know those girls besides, i have to go to my grandmother in laws for dinne…id rather do that”
Just like that………..EPIC FAIL AS A MAITRON OF HONOR…
i have a maid of honor as well…she is my best friends fiance…yes they decided to get married after getting wedding fever hearing my fi and i talking about our wedding..they decided they (moh to me and best man to him) despite their obligation to our wedding…are going to get married 3 months after us…guess what i dont think mine is as important anymore..in fact i know it isnt ..she was a no show as well.
