- Wedding: April 2014
So my wedding is in 3 days, on Wednesday. I have one Maid/Matron of Honor, and one Bridesmaid or Best Man. The Maid/Matron of Honor lives out of town, the Bridesmaid or Best Man lives in the same town as me.
About 3 months ago I told all the girls invited to the wedding to reserve last night for a hens night. It was about 4 days ago that I found out nothing had been planned for my hens night. No activities, no dinner, absolutley nothing.. Im not bumme dabout that, but moreso to the fact I asked my Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man to come and get nails, facials, massages etc done today before we went drinking and to dinner.(all the beauty services paid by me)
So I text Bridesmaid or Best Man to see if she needed a lift to come to the spa day(as she doesnt drive, and whenever we meet or go out, I have to pick her up). So she messages me back saying she doesn’t want to go anymore. So I rang her and asked why, I mean it was just supposed to be a fun day out with the girls, not trying to “perfect” ourselves as such. But then she said she cant afford it, I said Im paying. Then she said she’d feel guilty, to which I responded just take it as your Bridesmaid or Best Man gift from me. Regardless of what I said, she still refused to come, which ended up costing me $50 anyways as they take $50 if you break an appointment without 2 hours notice.
So that was all fine and well, Maid/Matron of Honor, Mum, aunt and Future Mother-In-Law all went to the spa, then we went to a bar next door and had a cocktail. Then went home to continue with drinkies, which I then asked Bridesmaid or Best Man if she would want a lift before I got too intoxicated to drive. To which she responded no, Im not in a drinking mood. Fair enough, whatever. Fast forward to an hour before our dinner reservation(7pm) I text Bridesmaid or Best Man to confirm the restaurant, she already knew the time. She then text me back saying that 7pm is too late for her, and she’ll pass! At this point I started to get cranky, she skipped EVERYTHING on my hens night/bachelorette day.
What really peeved me off, was the weekend before was her birthday dinner, was started at 6:30, 30mins earlier than my dinner this weekend. I would also add, she insisted I take the day off work for her birthday to drive her to get her makeup and hair professionally done and tan, wax etc etc..
Sorry for it being so long, but just needed to put it out there how annoyed I was Bridesmaid or Best Man.
