- Wedding: June 2010
So, I have pretty much no close friends, and no sisters. I really didn’t want to stand up there on the wedding day all alone when my fiance has a Best Man. So I asked a girl from work that I hang out with occasionally.
She can be very immature (she’s almost 21 and doesn’t know how to work the stove…yeah) and is a total ditz sometimes, but I have fun with her, so I wasn’t too terribly worried. I didn’t make her throw me a shower or anything. All her duties include is get a purple dress and be there on time.
Well, now that we have a little bit over a month to go, I told her she needs to get a dress soon. I found a couple online and sent them to her, and she liked them. However she really wanted to try them on first. Ok, whatever. We made plans to drive the 1.5hrs to the store and get a dress tomorrow.
I get to work today and saw she called out. Weird, so I txted her asking what’s up. She claims she’s sick. Then later on, when I get out of work I get another txt asking me to call her when I get home. I do and she says her new boyfriend broke up with her and so she got herself all worked up and stayed up all night crying and making herself sick. So she’s canceling on me.
I’m afraid she’ll never get around to getting a dress. I’m also getting scared that she doesn’t even want to be in the wedding. A month ago I had to go through our work’s request off book to add vacation time to the week of my honeymoon, I saw that the week of my wedding was unavailable to request off anymore. So I told her because I was worried my other 2 friends from work wouldn’t be able to come. She got all freaked and asked why I was looking at the day in the first place. ?! Does that mean she didn’t even request off my day? Maybe I’m a bit paranoid by her flakiness, but I’m getting worried.
Should I just buy her a dress through online and be done with it? Or does this require a long chat? She avoids wedding talk like the plague, and I hate to bring it up because she might freak on me because she takes things far too personally.
Ugh. I’m starting to regret asking her.
