- Wedding: January 2012
I feel ridiculous even having to ask this.
First I will start with the fact that I dont have very many close friends. My Maid/Matron of Honor is my friend who lives in DE, Bridesmaid or Best Man1 is my older sister, and Bridesmaid or Best Man2 is my best friend since 2nd grade. I have yet to get everyone together to get their dresses. I feel like I am bothering everyone just to get them to the store. I understand that people are busy but I NEED some of their time to get their dresses. I’m not asking for any help from them (except the MOH) to plan the wedding. My older sister has 4 kids and has her own day care business while my bro in law works over an hour away from home. I understand that she is crazy busy.
The other day at work was so frustrating so I put “OMMFG” on my facebook page. Then I called the bridal store we are using to find out if they will be open the day before Memorial Day. Just my luck, they aren’t since all my ladies were available. So I text my sister to tell her they were closed. She said she might be able to get her mom to watch her kids while we go to the store and come right back. THEN she got on facebook and saw my OMMFG comment and I guess she thought it was towards her so she said “why don’t you just kick me out!”…meaning..kick her out of the wedding. I told her the comment wasn’t about her and it was about the offenders that I supervise. She never responded.
I think I need to say something to her but I’m not sure what to say. On one hand I think she feels bad that she hasnt been available for me and on the other hand maybe she just wants to be let off the hook of being in the wedding. I want her to be in the wedding but I dont want her stressed out..or me. I dont want to start any fights. I’m already stressed enough about multiple other things.
Any suggests on how to approach the situation?
