- Wedding: April 2013
I am torn on what to do, and appreciate any input.
So one of my supposedly good friends is a bridesmaid in my wedding. I am also a bridesmaid in her wedding. Ever since I got engaged (or ever a little bit before then) this “friend” has been telling some of my other bridesmaids that i am stealing her wedding ideas (like repinning her pins on public boards on pinterest?). For her wedding, she will tell her other bridesmaids what she’s doing but has SPECIFICALLY asked them to not say anything to me because i will supposedly steal her ideas (even though my wedding is before then?).
She also complains how she’s broke, yet posts on facebook how she goes on shopping sprees and spends all this money on trips, yet can’t afford to chip in for the shower or bachelorette party. I am not a competitive person by any means yet she is complaining to my Maid/Matron of Honor how people are throwing me multiple showers and parties and she isn’t getting the same thing. or complaining how she doesn’t have a Maid/Matron of Honor and complaining about my BFF and i being each others Maid/Matron of Honor.
I don’t like how she’s making this a competition. I have been good and have said nothing trying to be a bigger person and ignoring it but with the wedding getting closer I am getting more stressed out by this situation. When she does something I like I could care less, but if I like something after she does she gets PISSED.
so not only is she stressing ME out she is also stressing out other bridesmaids.
Her and I were also bridesmaids together in a mutual friends wedding and she caused somewhat of a stink but to a lesser degree. But I had hoped she had changed.
I have thought about sitting and talking with her about what her deal is and why she is saying things and doing things the way she is, but I highly doubt I would make a difference.
What are your takes on this scenario? the wedding is only 2 months away so i may be able to hold out, but not sure i can hold out for hers based on her behavior.
