I found my dress yesterday!!! But I was with my mom and my Maid/Matron of Honor was not with me. When I told her I found my dress, all she could say to me was..”i am really hurt.” I ended up losing my excitment and found myself explaining how I found my wedding dress and trying to comfort her and HER feelings…..when I feel like I should have been jumping up and down. I am hurt by her reaction, and kinda upset. What should I do?

Maybe find out why she’s upset.

Maybe there is something more that makes her THAT upset about not being with you. It’s not your fault you found THE ONE while she wasn’t there to see. It’s not like she won’t be included in so many other aspects of the wedding and planning. Plus, you were with your MOM! Not just some random friend. I think it will be okay. Just talk to her now, and don’t let things fester and bottle up as time goes on.

This is where ladies need to learn to accept that people who are getting married are going in different directions, will make decisions all by themselves, do things independently or with their husband and family coming first, and if they are true friends they will draw you a map, applaud your decisions, embrace your individuality, feel warmed by your family ties and raise a glass in a toast to your friendship and just love you for who you are!!! Uncondional friendship is what its all about. You should not have to feel bad about your choices and that she can’t be there for every.little.thing. Celebrate your dress!

Did you invite her then decide to go earlier with just your mom? Or was she not invited at all. Did you have other friends there? I think we need more info on the situation. I can see why she’d be hurt if she wasn’t invited since I’m assuming she’s your best friend.
