I might sound like a huge jerk here, but I really need to get this off my chest. A few weeks ago I posted about how I was peeved at a friend of mine. Our weddings are pretty close together (mine in August, hers in October) and I’m a little hurt over how she’s been acting.
She has no problem expecting me (and her other BMs) to shell out tons of $$ for an elaborate bridal shower and bachelorette party but cries broke when I even begin to mention mine. She loves telling me about her custom wedding shoes and the designer dresses that she’s purchased for her (surprise!) bridal shower but then turns around and tells me that she can’t afford to one lousy dish for for the slumber party/bachelorette get together that I have planned. Argh!
So, this weekend my amazing Future Mother-In-Law threw me a surprise bridal shower and got together some of my nearest and dearest friends. I had such an amazing time and am so grateful to be surrounded by so much love.
I feel like a tool for letting this get to me but…this girl was in attendance and spent the whole time telling anyone who would listen what was on her registry and what she was expecting and how offended she was when some of her future in laws didn’t give them a gift for their engagement party and she didn’t even bring a card!!
The more I think about it, the more annoyed I get. She has the balls to tell me what she would like the most off her registry but she can’t bring a stupid friggin card to my bridal shower? I’m supposed to be helping plan a bridal shower for her, but really, the thought of spending any more money on this girl makes me physically ill.
Phew. Okay. Rant over.

@PinkPandaBear: Yikes… she sounds like a gem.
Sorry about that.
I don’t really have any advice. She sounds very self centered and materialistic.

ugh she sounds awful! I would get her the cheapest thing on her registry, or better yet, just a card. No message just sign it haha

Sounds to me like she’s jealous of you! You are getting more attention because your wedding is first and she’s trying to get the spotlight back on her. Let her talk, everyone else around her probably feels the same way you do.

@PinkPandaBear: Only you know if this is just a case of temporary wedding insanity, or if this girl really is this rude and clueless. If you think this is just temporary, give her the benefit of the doubt, keep on with the things you are doing, and , well, grin and bear it. But if this is a fundamental personality flaw, I would seriously reconsider being a part of her wedding – no one wants to reflect back and feel like they were used. It’s maddening to see someone act in such a self-centered manner, but I think in a lot of cases, weddings bring out the worst in people. Good luck!

Next time she tells you what she wants, tell her “I’ll have to see if afford that with my own wedding coming up so soon. But I’ll be sure to at least bring a card like you did… OH WAIT! You didnt even get me a damn card!!! B(@$*@H”

And why are you in each other’s weddings again? It sounds awful and not a position I’d want to be in.

How old is she? She sounds very immature. I would just give her a card and tell her that with your upcoming wedding you can’t afford to get her a gift off of her registy. It sucks to play games, but sometimes you just need to give people a taste of their own medicine. Good luck:)
