Yikes! Sorry your sister has turned into such a nightmare. I’m glad you posted this and I hope brides will read it and see things from Bridesmaid or Best Man perspective. I think a lot of normal women turn into bridezillas because they get so focused on their wedding that they forget it’s really not a big deal for anyone else.

Weddings make people go Cray- cray.  Even the brides.

I wouldn’t judge the forums to hard, We can olny judge by what we are told. and if she was ” light on the details” … well you can see why they might be inclined to agree.

Good for Bridesmaid or Best Man B and your cousins for hightailing it out of there.  A BM’s olny job is to show up and look pretty.  It’s a bounus if they want to do arts and crafts with you.

I can see how it would be upsetting that Bridesmaid or Best Man A couldn’t come to anything,  but she did say she was ok with anything they picked so your sister still doens’t have a leg to stand on.

but your sister needs the reality check that no one is as excited about her wedding as she is.

@Monkeymia:  Wow! That is absurd! Maybe she didnt give all the details when expressing her feelings on the wedding boards (this one?!!??).

I think Bridesmaid A was SUPER supportive and made sure to express to the bride that she was indeed upset about missing some of the wedding DIY meetings and she agreed to go with whatever dress the bride picked out and pay $X amount. IMO the duty of the bridesmaids needs to be addressed from the beginning if the bride has certain expectations (mine is to just show up on the wedding day and be happy for me, but I know some disagree and have more expectations).

I’m sorry your sister is acting the way that she is and its very odd that she is now going around asking almost complete strangers to be her Bridesmaid or Best Man and is then STUNNED and upset when they decline! I hope your sister comes to realize that she is acting like a child, and I think it might come to head when she doesnt have anyone to stand next to her on the wedding day! I hope everything turns out well and all I can say is that weddings sometimes turn good people into crazed beasts!!

Sheesh, I wish my bridesmaid was more like Bridesmaid A. At least she let her know she couldn’t make some things or even reply at all. Atleast Bridesmaid A communciate to her about everything and she knew she had a busy schedule before hand.
