Update on Maid/Matron of Honor issue.
I talked to her, I was so nice, I tried explaining why I was upset.
She FREAKED. She was sarcastic, she told me that “I guess your not the best friend I thought you were”
What do I do? She never acts happy for me. She called fellow Bridesmaid or Best Man a bit** for trying to help. Called Bridesmaid or Best Man a control freak for helping me pick out my dress. Did this in front a group of people who weren’t involved.
Her boyfriend is also in the wedding, but I don’t even see them lasting until the wedding. Ugh this is so hard. I know It wll only get worse. Any advice my fellow bees? Sorry for ranting about this continuously. (sp?)

Decide if she is the kind of friend you want long term. Or are you friends now just because you were before? Not all relationships stay the same. Then that is your answer

Maybe she was hurt and defensive and once she calms down you guys will have a more productive conversation. Good luck.

@lefeymw: That’s a great way of putting this. That really made me think, thank you. 🙂
@amyisnice: Unfourtunatley I’ve tried talking to her three times. Two times weren’t successful, this last one only made it worse :/ I knew it would.

I agree w/ @lefeymw. If you want to maintain this friendship, continue to put up w/ her BS. If your tired of it, let her know that its not working and refund the cost of her dress. The last thing you want is a Maid/Matron of Honor who doesn’t give a damn about you and destroy your wedding day. You don’t need the continued stress or drama.
By The Way, I know several brides that stopped being friends w/ members of their wedding party. It happens because life happens. This wouldn’t be the 1st friend that you may eventually outgrow.

Maybe something is going on with her? Maybe give her some space.
