- Wedding: May 2015
An out-of-town bridesmaid felt sad that she was not that involved in the wedding festitivites. She decided to reach out to my only in-town bridesmaid and ask her if she would be willing to throw me a surprise party with my mother’s help. This in-town bridesmaid said that she would be very willing and called my mom to arrange it. I had no idea any of this was going on. Apparently she spoke to my mom and a plan was underway. This friend called me a week ago and said “Don’t tell your mom but we were planning to throw you a surprise party and I can’t do it anymore because I’m too busy.” I was like …okay? I don’t even care and I hate surprises but I really wish she 1. had not told me 2. had told my mother and the friend that reached out to her. It just made no sense. She went on about how she had all these elaborate plans to ask my out of town bridesmaids to fly in and I was just thinking to myself, “I wish you had not told me all of this.” My friend who reached out to her and gave her the idea is now angry because she felt like she tried to take credit for the surprise party. This girl did not tell me once that it was not her idea. Frankly, I don’t care who’s idea it was (but maybe because it wasn’t mine). I just feel bad for my mom who I now have to tell that the surprise she wanted to plan was ruined. This Bridesmaid or Best Man does not plan to tell my mother she is no longer involved.
Why couldn’t my friend just excuse herself from the party so my mom could plan something?!
