- Wedding: May 2013
As I browse through the boards I have noticed a lot of “bridesmaid drama” posts.
Why is it that the girls we chose as our right hand girls sometimes turn on us the bride? jealousy? selfishness? maybe they think we are too wedding obessed and demanding?
I experienced this first hand recently….we went to buy the bridesmaid dresses all together and picked out a beautiful purple dress….I was under the impression everyone had purchased it but I found out the NEXT day that in fact one girl was not okay with the price did not say anything and asked one other Bridesmaid or Best Man to “sit out” with her…..so the Maid/Matron of Honor and I (for my sister in colombia) bought our dresses but these two decided they were gonna not buy it and think about it???
I was really mad and offended but I reached out and offered to help with the cost…..she said that will help. But never contacted me to buy it…and I come to find out from my Maid/Matron of Honor that they bought the dresses last week….so I dont get it.
I have been planning my wedding with the help of my Fiance and Maid/Matron of Honor and the truth is these two havent even ASKED whats going on, I feel hurt, disappointed, and angry at times.
BUT people are sometimes selfish….maybe they want to be married and are jealous? maybe they feel abonded because i have been “wedding obsessed” and really busy lately?
This is my wedding….I want to enjoy my engagement….I want to go to bridal shows and do diy favors and have say yes to the dress party!
…..and I really dont want someone’s action to affect my wedding bliss…..
So They wont!
Those girls will stilll put on that beautiful purple dress and stand up there with me and be part of my special day because i do love them and I asked them for a reason….But I am a little suprised by “BrIDESMAID DRAMA” and maybe the friendship will be great again after marriage or maybe marriage life will have changes in friendship.
In mother Teresa’s words:”People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered. Love them anyway.”
