- Wedding: August 2009
Urgh! I’ve actually posted about this friend in the past. She’s getting married this summer, and I adore her. I’m incredibly happy for her and can’t wait for the wedding to celebrate with them … and to be over!
I hate saying it because I despise this word, but she’s become a B-Zilla.
When she doesn’t talk about the wedding, she’s her normal, calm, wonderfully lovable self. During wedding talk, it’s a whole other story.
So far, she’s:
– Sent FB messages to her guests with updates on their registry. And no, they’re not mistakes. If they’ve added a crockpot, we all get to know about it.
– After spending an ENTIRE day with her visiting about four bridal salons in the city, AND spent half a day driving to a salon that was 90 mins each way, she got upset with me when I wouldn’t drive ANOTHER 90 mins with her to see yet another dress in a far-away location.
– I’m a wedding vendor, and of course I would love to help her out with her wedding! I’m more than happy to, in fact, and of course I won’t charge her any fees. BUT, she’s totally taken advantage of it, and I had to tell her that my full-time job isn’t planning her wedding. In the end, she understood, but she have me some ‘tude about it.
Just now I got a voicemail from her that more or less demanded I drive 30 mins each way to her house and overnight her veil because she’s out of town and doing her hair trial tomorrow. Should I mention that I work 8-5, and get home at 6 p.m. after a long commute? From my house, it’s a 30-min drive to hers (without traffic, which there always is), not to mention I work most nights as a wedding vendor (which I’m doing tonight). She knows all this. What gets me the most though, is that in her VM, she said, “I need you to … ” and never once said, “Thank you, this would be a huge help” or “Could you do me a favor?”
Technically, when it’s all said and done, I could do it for her. It would just be a huge inconvenience to me, and I probably wouldn’t get home until 10 p.m. I haven’t decided yet.
As a former bride, I get the stress. I really do. But she’s just ridiculous! Mind you, I’m not even in the wedding party. I just needed to vent because it’s always one thing after another.
