Ugh sisters….. I have two of them… got to love them…

This is probably because this is no longer centered around her that she dosn’t seem to care enough to actually participate. Family should always come first, but if she is going to act that way, I wouldn’t want her there since she will probably moan the entire time. Hopefully, she will come to her senses.

She said she was going to the other couple’s wedding rather than yours?  That’s kind of messed up! 

I feel your pain.  I have two sisters.  One of them is a nightmare with everything in life.  If I were you, I would just give up on the idea that she’s going to help out any.  You are probably setting yourself up for disappointment if you continue to count on her.

WTF why would a sister choose to go to someone else’s wedding over yours?! I’m sorry…

I have the same issue going on with my sister… She lives in Canada, I live in California. She doesn’t want to participate, and ever since I got engaged our relationship has not been the same. We used to talk every day, and when we both got iPhones we started facetiming every night. She was originally going to be my Maid/Matron of Honor, but after a few months of her barely even texting me, and then her getting pregnant and telling me that because she will have a 7 month old baby at the time of my wedding, she doesn’t think she will be able to help out as much, we decided that she is no longer going to be my Maid/Matron of Honor. She is 17, and she feels like the world needs to revolve around her, and when someone else gets the spotlight she goes kind of crazy. Typical 17 year old girl right? Haha.

I am sorry you are going through this! You are definitely not alone. Sisters or moms seem to be the root of all Bridezillas! haha.

Maybe she is jealous she is no longer the bride. Sorry she is acting this way.

@Olive12:  I don’t see a big deal that she is missing your after ceremony dinner for a friend’s wedding.  She will be at your reception the following day. It doesn’t sound like she is “opting out of ALL the wedding events;” she is just missing the post ceremony dinner.  Is she attending any showers or bachelorette parties?  Will she be at the rehearsal?

You should not expect your sister to have the same level of involvement in your wedding as you did in hers.  We all have different lives and different schedules; your helping your sister with her wedding was a gift, and it should have been given with no strings attached. Graciously accept the help she offers, and be appreciative of her time and energy.

@Olive12:  Some people LOVE attention and if it isn’t on them, they are sour pusses. You know you sister better than me but maybe she is this way?
