- Wedding: March 2013
So my older sister (only sibling she’s 32 I’m 24) has been making me crazy!! When I got engaged in July she instantly started acting nuts, repeatedly asking if she was my Maid/Matron of Honor. I really wanted my cousin to be my Maid/Matron of Honor because we’re really close and she totally gets me! Well my sister kept asking, keep in mind I wasn’t her MOH! Finally I decided to make her matron of honor and my cousin maid of honor.
Then when it came time to pick out dresses I sent pictures of my favorite dresses to my four girls to see which ones they liked, 2 girls liked one dress and 2 girls liked another so I let them get the dresses they wanted in the same color! Well the one my sister and cousin picked was one shoulder with an optional second strap and the other 2 girls had strapless. I ended up deciding to add a one shoulder to my wedding dress so my cousin said they should add a second strap so I would be different. My sister was pissed, at first she said she didn’t want to add it but finally caved.
I’m wearing a crystal headband for the reception, she sent me a picture of a headband almost exactly like mine and said she was ordering it to wear at the wedding. I politely asked if she wouldn’t since ill be wearing one ..again she was mad but finally agreed.
She insisted i invite her mil, so I did and she rsvpd yes and now 11 days before the wedding my sister says her mil may not be coming and that I can change the guest count right? Wrong! She was on the phone with me when I was paying for the final guest count! Shes been doing things like this the whole time! I haven’t had anything stress me out as much as she has during my wedding planning! She’s picked on one of my more quiet bridesmaids and has overall been a pain in my ass!
Now tonight she calls to complain about having to pack for her flight tomorrow and says she’s going to wear a different dress to the bachelorette party and says its purple. I said well you know everyone’s going to wear black and I’m going to wear purple (my wedding color) her response? WELL THAT’S TOO BAD! I got off the phone I was shocked.
Ladies what do I do? I’m furious. Originally I had her standing next to me in the ceremony and I’m thinking of having my cousin there instead because the thought of standing next to her is making my skin crawl. I’m sorry this was so long but what would you guys do?!?
