- Wedding: May 2011
My matron of honor is an amazing person, but she is also a very selfish person. FI and I got engaged quick, and were getting married quick, and both of our familys are still expecting us to do everything very tradionally. Well when I explained that to MO she threw a fit…fine I’ll do the Bridal shower myself, no worries, I’ve thrown plenty and have gotten it down to an art. She decided that wasn’t allowed and she would do it all, and wouldn’t let me help with anything. Ideas, suggestions, offers to help with food, games, small details…shot down. I was told “I dont want to hear your mouth, I’m doing it it will get done.” Well yesterday, I checked with her to see if I needed to pick up prizes for the games while I was out….due to shes never done this she isn’t really one hundred percent on what she is doing, even though she is trying to come off as she is. She told me in these exact words “I decided I’m not going to do any because I dont have time now (she spends full nights awake playing WOW but didn’t have twenty minutes to make a game) And I dont want Jesse to have to reinstall word”….uhmn so what are our 30 guests going to do for three hours? It is the first time my family is meeting FI’s…and the shower is being held at my Mother in laws. So I went ahead and made my own games real quick last night (Just two…Co-ed Bridal shower…how well do you know the bride…how well do you know th groom) and will be running out here in just a few moments to get gift cards for the winners!! Well at 2am I started getting messages from her saying this was to much work, and she had no idea how she was going to get all the food done in time….she didn’t go shopping for anything until midnight last night….due to her designated time on her FB invitations…that I then fallowed on my formal invitations I made myself….2PM just wasn’t feesable and she started whinning about money (which I offered to cover and she wouldnlt let me) so my Bridal shower….with 30 family memebers, soon to be family memebers, and closets friends will be here…and I’m not sure if the host will even be there…I’m a total wreck. I feel bad because I’m so upset with her, but darn it she did this to herself, and yes I am refusing to help now because she shot me down so many times. Ahhh sorry Bee’s…I just needed to vent. I’m a ball of stress….two easters to cordinate tomorrow as well….Keeping my fingers today pulls together and isn’t a complete wreck!! Hope every one has a great weekend, and an amazing easter with those they love!!
