So i attended the wedding with SO and his daughter……AND since bitchy cousin’s daughter (5), who was her flower girl was so out of control, screaming, refusing to walk down to her mother, throwing her flowers at guests she lost time to poke at me! However, I did show up in a LBD and heels……lots of compliments from her in-laws and even though the bouquet was handed to me I smiled and played it off and thank goodness SO has a sense of humor, he played right along with me. Her bridesmaid also disappeared……with a married groomsman , they never returned so that part is still a mystery! SO gave me a great pep talk and so did all ya bees!!! Thx ladies!

Update from previous post, my cousin and her bridesmaids were giving me an extremly hard time about not being married, it was awful leading up to the wedding, but then the night of, everything kinda went to hell for her, in a way i felt a little bad here’s the original post.

Karma is only a bitch if you are 🙂
Good for you for being the bigger person and taking everything in stride. It does suck that another bride’s day was anything less than perfect though.

I still can’t believe those words came out of someones mouth. People are so rude. But it sounds like the wedding was successful, well on your end, anyway.

DaneLady I agree, I hate for any bride to have bad things happen but it’s def karma.

@MrsFarm0619: What pep talk did your SO give you?

You handled that situation with grace and elegance. Give yourself a hand for being a class act. I remember your OP and I give you credit for being such a class act.

@peachacid: I think black to a wedding is pretty standard, no? I think Ive wore black to every wedding Ive gone to 🙂 But atleast its not white (which my mom did once!!!)

Ugh, I just know SO’s sister will want her adorable daughter (she is extremely adorable) to be a flowergirl at our wedding. I don’t want any kids in the wedding party. they can be set off by anything. No thanks. i don’t want any kids there during the ceremony at all. She’ll be 4 1/2 when the wedding happens. i hope I can eliminate all kids from the ceremony without seriously pissing peple off…
Anyway, good way to handle that awkward situation. i don’t understand why people don’t mind their own business.

- Wedding: June 2013 - Country Club
I wore black to my bff/MOH’s wedding (but the wedding was in the middle of winter and I didn’t really have any other winter-appropriate dress clothing, and the wedding was ‘shot gun’ so it was very quickly planned). Anyways, I’m glad you were able to brush off everything that went on with class.
also, my little avatar is actually me at her wedding… I cropped her out lol! What a great friend I am.

Mrs.Browneyes me either! lol
SO just told me to be the bigger person and that people generally make comments like that when they are jealous or unhappy with themselves or their current situation. All of the cousins, this one included have had children before getting married (which i don’t really think is a huge issue except for the fact that she has three and all different dads) and she’s four years younger. Her choices have made life harder for her. I have no children, awesome job and been out on my own for quite some time, she’s still relying on state aid, but she doesn’t necessarily need it or wouldn’t need it if her husband would get a job and help with the children. SO wanted me to realize that marriage isn’t everything (tell that to a waiting bee!!!!! lol) and that i’ve actually made something of myself before committing my life to someone else or bringing up children that i’m not ready for. He basically told me not to be so darn hard on myself. Sometimes men are pretty smart
