- Wedding: November 2013
I couldn’t choose between three of my closest friends for Maid/Matron of Honor so I chose my sister-in-law, with whom I’m not terribly close but she is family. At first she was very responsive and very into planning everything.
Wedding invitations went out and she emailed me the day she received it to say she loved it and would send the RSVP the next day and she couldn’t wait to celebrate with us.
She planned a beautiful, very thoughtful shower. I loved it and immediately wrote her (and everyone else) a thank-you note.
Two weeks after she said she would mail the RSVP, I realized I didn’t receive it. I sent an email to say it must have gotten lost in the mail and would she let me know their meal choices. She wrote back, apologized and said she still had it and would send the next day. OK fine.
Some things came up in her life, and I reached out several times to offer help/an ear/a shoulder/whatever she needed. No responses.
Then my other bridesmaids told me that they reached out to her for the bachelorette party, and she told them she was too busy, to plan it without her and she wouldn’t attend. I left her a voicemail, said I would be sad to miss her but understood and once again offered help if she needed it. No return call. No big deal – like I said, I understand life can get hectic and busy.
So today (now 5 weeks after sending the invitations) I’m working on final to-dos for the vendors and realize hers is the last meal choice I haven’t received. Sent an email asking for her meal choices and her response is, “the RSVP says I have until Oct 1st to return it.”
WTF?? I have no words. Clearly she’s pissed off about something but I have no idea what. I left yet another voicemail. So sad!!!!
