It sounds like you are the type to be the bigger person and you should do just that.  Some people are always miserable.  Just remember that you can’t change other people or control their actions, you can only control and change you.  So don’t let the brat get to you.  Don’t expect anything helpful or nice from her and you won’t be disappointed.  Her role, as you said, will be to walk down the aisle.  Whether it’s jealousy, pettiness, or a love for drama, this girl is not going to be anything more than that for you.  It’s great that you have a supportive fiance, and hopefully other bridesmaids that will fill her gap 🙂

Stop trying to engage her and leave her alone, right now you’re giving her exactly hat she wants which is attention. In fact I’d try not to engage anyone and just do your own thing, finish up your wedding prep, and steer clear of anyone trying to cause drama. If they think youre being distant just  tell them you have a lot going on trying to finish things up.

Why not ask her out to lunch or something? And try and have a fun girl date that will soften her up. That way things might not be so tense..?
