- Wedding: September 2012
I have 5 bridesmaids, my three sisters who are 15, 6 and 4, my cousin and ‘best friend’ since we were babies, and my matron of honour is my auntie.
My ‘best friend’ and I were always very close, then she went to uni and has changed alot, then she got her first boyfriend, and now we hardly see or hear from her. He lives in Ireland, We live in Cornwall, she has gone to Ireland to be with him, supposedly for a month or two, so far it has been 3.5 months, but she is happy and I am sooooo happy for her and glad she has a good man in her life. So much so that we we asked him to be an usher, to which she replied, ‘umm sure, why? who cancelled?’ which I was very offended by.
Anyways, the wedding is at the beginning of Sept and my nan is doing the alterations on the dresses, we have now got all the dresses and I have done my flowers etc, my fiance is concerned the dresses won’t go together, as the two youngest have the same dresses, the sister and cousin have the same and the matron of honour has a different one. So, to make sure everything matches and looks nice etc, we want to get everyone together and get all the dresses on to check.
So I text her asking her when she is next home, she told us in Jan it should be mid feb, anyways, she replied ‘should be before June’!
She does not seem in the slight bit interested in anything but her boyfriend lately, I put on facebook that I had cracked the seating plan and she text me saying it all sucks and why am I doing it, and am I not fed up with it all – so I replied I AM GETTING MARRIED, I AM EXCITED!!!
My matron of honour is amazing, I asked her to be my Maid/Matron of Honor a couple of months after getting engaged, and she was soo touched, she is a size 32 and has a load of tattoos so was hesitant, but as I said, I love her and she is a good friend as well. So after a LOT of tears she proudly accepted the role. My other bridesmaid (cousin) expected to be a bridesmaid.
Maid/Matron of Honor is constantly asking how the wedding is going, cried when I tried my dress on, is helping in any and every way she can. Offered to help me get my deposit back from my venue which has just gone into administration (a month or so ago), my other bm didn’t even care.
My 6 year old bm is more excited and interested than my bm, asking every day how many sleeps it is til the wedding.
Am I being petty getting annoyed by this or not?
