- Wedding: May 2011
I am extremely stressed out. My best friend (who is my fiance’s sister, who I met after I met my fiance) seems to be pulling away from me the closer we get to our wedding day. I have 2 sisters, and he has 1 sister, 1 brother. I chose to have our sisters as our bridesmaids and our long time mutual friend be our maid of honor (she also set us up). I couldn’t choose between my sisters and his sister for the Maid/Matron of Honor spot! If I did, can you say DRAMA?! My BFF wasn’t impressed the fact that I didn’t choose her to be my Maid/Matron of Honor. My sisters however thought that our mutual friend was the perfect fit for Maid/Matron of Honor. So here’s the issue. We have been attending all these wedding appointments, getting everything booked and putting deposists down. I have not taken any of my girls to these appointments, just the parents and of course my fiance. This is the reasoning – if I invite one girl, I have to invite them ALL because one of them will get angry if I don’t invite them. Jealousy issues I figure. Plus, I don’t think its fair to the vendors if I have a clan of 10 people come with me to every appointment, nor do they allow big groups. Anyways, my BFF wants to attend one of these appointments but what she doesn’t understand is that its a) not her wedding b) these are not her decisions c) if I invite her, I have to invite ALL girls. (I should point out tho that everyone did come to choose the wedding gown.) She’s really withdrawing from me and its really bothering me. I feel like if I had to pick one of my girls to attend the appointments with me regarding venue, decorator etc, it should be the Maid/Matron of Honor. I don’t wanna even go there because I am a no-drama person. This is stressing me out none the less. Advice??
