BeachBee1988:  I agree with your comments about the budget – this annoys me! My parents paid for our wedding too (majority anyway), and I still had a budget I had to stick to. It’s not like I could have asked my parents to pony up more money…

Shoot4theMoon:  I know!  It makes it double worse!  You cheated on her and are already engaged?  This tells me he doesn’t take engagment seriously if he is jumping from one engagement to another.  His relationship with “C” won’t last.  He’ll cheat on her too!  And he’ll be engaged to the new one….

Why on earth did you have to dance with your ex?!?! Were you two the only people in the bridal party? Did you also have to walk down the aisle together?

I actually can’t get past that she made OP dance with her ex… that is INSANE.

llevinso:  Yes, I stood up with and danced with the ex.  All the bridesmaids walked down the aisle with their groomsmen.  When it came to me, I walked halfway down then my ex walked up the aisle and we walked the rest of the way down together.  We danced together when the bridal party danced, along with the parents and grandparents, but fortunately it was only for like a third of a song.  I knew about it going in and said I could handle it but it was much weirder than I expected it to be.

LaurieW:  Yeah, he proposed to her like 7 months after we broke up.  They’re soul mates according to her Instagram (major eye roll).

sunnierdaysahead2:  I still don’t get why YOU had to be paired up with your EX??? Obviously there were more people in the bridal party. Wouldn’t it have made sense to have you walk with/dance with someone else? With all this crap you’ve gone through, that’s honestly what pisses me off the most! I would never even SUGGEST that one of my best friends walk down the aisle with a guy that cheated on her and broke her heart! 

You’re a better person than I, because I would’be told off this bride long ago.

llevinso:  Oh, I had to be paired with him because he was the best man and I was Maid/Matron of Honor and it would have looked so awful to pair me with another guy (insert another eye roll). I did know that when I accepted to be Maid/Matron of Honor but that was also before he proposed to his now-FI and I broke up with the other guy I was dating so a lot did happen between then and the wedding.  I haven’t spoken to the bride since the wedding.  I’m giving myself some space.

Actually, looking back, when I accepted Maid/Matron of Honor role, it wasn’t totally certain that my ex was going to be Bridesmaid or Best Man but I knew it was a possibility.
