- Wedding: August 2010
So, i am having more and more problems with my maid of honour as the wedding draws closer.
She is already happily married, has three children however she seems to think that she can use my wedding to ensure that SHE has the most spectacular day ever. I dont like being rude but this is MY day!
It first started with hair, we had all decided that the bridesmaids would be wearing flowers in their hair however she kicked off because she wanted a tiara! I stood my ground and said that even im not wearing a tiara so there is no way she is.
Then it came to the dresses, which she liked, but wanted to buy a shawl to wear over it, bearing in mind she asked for a strapless dress i was a bit peeved as none of the other bridesmaids would be wearing one and i think she would look out of place – so i made up an excuse for her not to have one! Shortly afterwards she just went ahead and bought a corset to wear under her dress, now this isnt a huge problem but the dresses are very thin and you can see the corset through them as they are tight, never the less i thought there isnt much i can say about it as it is underwear!
Finally, and this has been the last straw – is the shoes, she wanted shoes with diamantes all over them, they were like somethin out of the wizard of oz only not red! I flew off the handle basically and said no and suggested some others, she has said she doesnt like any of them.
What makes it even harder is my other bridesmaid is being great, she has basically said its your day i will do what you want, why cant my maid of honour be the same and considering she has already been married you would think she understands. It is really stressing me out, so much that i have had to take some time off work as i have been getting migraines which i am told are being triggered by stress.
I thought the whole point of having a maid of honour was to take the stress off the bride?!?! HELP!!!! How do i deal with this???
