- Wedding: July 2014
My Maid/Matron of Honor has been complaining about everything, but tries to disguise it as not complaining.
Just one of many examples: Maid/Matron of Honor calls me up to confirm a zip code for the bridal shower invitations (it is the only task she is doing related to the bridal shower, my future-in-laws are hosting the shower). I told her I’d google it for her, she said she already did… after we agree on the zip code as being correct, she then goes on to complain about the cost of the postage and the time it takes to fill out the envelopes. She even aksed a bridesmaid to help her with splitting the 12 dollar cost of postage. She couldnt even front the 6 dollars. She insisted that the other girl give her the 6 dollars before she mailed them. My bridesmaid left her job early so that my bridal shower invitations would get mailed out on time…
My issue is that she has gone on 4 vacations, to 7 concerts, on 2 “shopping sprees”, to many VERY expensive dinners… in the past year. I wouldnt care but she has been asking my bridesmaids for rides to places because she is low on gas money, she asks them to lay out money, to split things, to plan everything around her work schedule (because she is so tight on money and needs to work).
I dont know what to do. Im not expecting her to make my wedding a priority. I just wish she would stop making life hell for my bridesmaids and stop complaining to me about every minimal task she has done. Ive said multiple times “you sound overwhelmed, is this too much for you to do? Its not a big deal if you cant do it?” and shes always turning me down.
What would you do?
