- Wedding: August 2008
So yesterdays situation of my mom freaking out about paying for my sisters dress – that has snowballed into a much larger situation now. I’m sorry if it’s long, bear with me I really need some advice.
Before I explain it I should let you know that my mom isn’t paying for a DIME of this wedding. All she was required to do was pick up the dress for my 6 year old sister. After having checks given as x-mas gifts bounce more times then a super ball – I’ve learned a bit not to expect big amounts of money in one lump sum. She offered and still thinks that she has to pay for the cake, FH and I will be picking this up – more then likely having to canel the videographer in order to do it – but it will get done.
Onto what’s NOW happening.
So After the blow out with my mom, I called my step mom to remind her that she offered to pay for my other sisters dress. This sister is curently unemployeed do to a high risk pregnancy. She’s my Maid/Matron of Honor.
I get an e-mail from my step mom, not just saying this in a short sentance but listing off a huge pity party poor me story about it….which annoyed me so much I barely glanced at it. In short – she doens’t recall making this offer and is sure it was my mother who made the offer.
Now I’m stuck with a either not having EITHER of my sisters in the wedding or canceling something esle to afford to pay for 2 dress, 2 alterations and 2 pairs of shoes.
My 6 year old sister I could have been fine with her not being in the wedding, I mean yeah I’d of been pissed because it’s no ones fault but my selfsih immature mothers but now I have to give up my Maid/Matron of Honor as well!?
Anyone who knows me knows I’ve alredy gone through 2 MOH’s already, one I booted for being a (insert choice cuss word here) and the other backed out as she hopes to be overly pregnant at the time…..
Is my wedding cursed? What is going on here? Not have my sisters in my wedding? 2 years ago I was happy to find out my sister was alive because of the lifestyle she once led. I prayed every night she’d be able to stand next to me at my wedding….and now she can’t becasue two woman are selfsich and flighty and don’t remember conversations!
I’m beyond words right now girls. There’s no more money, no chance of saving anything extra…the dresses are bing bought on Saturday and I’m down to the wire. I can’t push the date back anymore because then there won’t be enough time to get them in and alter before the big day…..WTH am I supposed to do?
I couldn’t even replace my sister by Saturday – if I had to. There’s no one else who could take her spot!!!
