- Wedding: September 2012
So my Maid/Matron of Honor is my Future Sister-In-Law and she is great! We’ve known each other for practically forever and there was no doubt in my mind I was asking her to be my Maid/Matron of Honor. So everythings gone great with wedding planning & I talk to her almost daily about wedding stuff. We really wanted a couples shower, so my Maid/Matron of Honor and FI’s best man (my brother) are throwing one for us & they’ve already started planning.
The problem starts when a friend of FI’s family starts messaging my Maid/Matron of Honor on facebook telling her she isn’t doing her “job” as a MOH! This lady is in her mid 50’s, and apparently has decided that my Maid/Matron of Honor needs “help”. My Maid/Matron of Honor politely tells her that they’re fine doing the planning and they don’t need help, but thanks for the offer. This lady goes on to suggest no longer doing a couples shower, and even contacts my Future Father-In-Law and FI’s aunt! She starts to tell them that my Maid/Matron of Honor is having trouble with the shower & that she should just take over. What?! Then she also starts messaging my mom, and telling her that my Maid/Matron of Honor will not be able to handle it. My mom just stopped responding to her messages.
And the most annoying part, is that I don’t even remember the last time Fiance or I even saw or spoke to this woman! She has gotten everyone in the whole family upset & fighting. My Maid/Matron of Honor finally had to call everyone and set the record straight and everything is starting to calm down now. But really?! Ugh so annoying! I can’t believe how easy it is to get everyone so riled up about nothing!
