Most of you know that I’m planning this wedding long distance. I’m going up to my hometown this weekend where most of my family and friends live. My aunt is one of my BMs and I asked her and my mom to go dress shopping with me on Friday evening. I haven’t seen her since March 5th, so of course I miss her terribly.
Now my aunt and her hubby love the bar scene and they are alllllways going out. Seriously, like at least 3 nights a week you will find them in a bar w/ their friends. I think it’s great and if I lived in the area I know I’d be going out with them all the time. 😉 Anywho, she told me she can’t come because she’s going out to the bar with her hubby and some friends.
I’m really bummed out. I know for a fact that she goes out all the time and I guess I just don’t understand why she can’t swing by the dress shop before she goes out drinking. I know I shouldn’t expect her to cancel plans on her friends, but they will survive for an hour without her, right?!
Anyways, I know she doesn’t HAVE to come, but I really wanted her there. FWIW, she got married last year, I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man and came upstate for all sorts of wedding things. I guess it just hurts because I put in a lot of effort to be there for her even though I live 4 hours away, I just thought she would want to do the same for me.
People can be lame sometimes. 🙁

Yea we’re going to the shop around 5, but I guess they’re going to a happy hour right after work.

That is a huge bummer! Sorry 🙁 Have you tried explaining to her that this would really mean a lot to you for her to be there? Or possibly having your mom talk to her about it?

🙁 That does suck. I get so angry when my friends choose the bar over other things (and it happens often…guess I need some new friends lol). Did you tell her you are really sad she “can’t” come? Maybe she doesn’t know how much it means to you.

I’m sorry! If it makes you feel any better, i went with just my mom and it was really special. Then my Maid/Matron of Honor came with me the next day and we tried it on again and it was still really great!

Thanks ladies, I will try talking to her again tonight and maybe let her know how bummed I am that she can’t come.
@kingytobe: I originally just wanted to go with my mom, but SHE felt weird about being the only one there haha. She’s like shouldn’t we get some girls your age to come and get their opinions? She’s so funny sometimes. I think my Maid/Matron of Honor is going to come, so that’s making me feel a bit better. 😀 She’s the best, I think I’d go crazy without her.
