So I’m Upset…

Filed in Uncategorized 0 comments

Up until recently, I haven’t had any trouble out of my Bridal Party. My girls are ok with their deadlines. I also don’t ask much of them, so that maybe another reason. Seriously, All I’ve asked them to do is meet up at a couple of dress shopping appointments for them, pay for their dress and pay for their shoes. That’s it.

My Maid of Honor and I have been going back and forth since January about my bachelorette party and bridal shower. She wants to have strippers at both events. What? Are you freaking serious? I don;t strippers and neither! It’s just my preference. I’m not cool with that. I want a nice bridal shower and I want to club hop for my bachelorette party. I told her that about hmm…..20 times. She still doesn’t get it. I even relieved her from the bridal shower duties because my FMIL and 2 of my Bridesmaids want to throw one for me. She still says that she’s going to have strippers there. She took it too far one night. We went out with Jay and his Best Man and she told Jay how she was going to have these strippers at my party and how I might learn something from them. Seriously? How disrespectful can you be??? Now she’s mad at me. Whatever.

Only 3 of the guys have paid for their tuxes. We have 9 more to go (Including the fathers, ushers and ring bearer) Jay called one of them yesterday and JUST asked him to be in the wedding. What the hell? He picked his groomsmen the same time I picked my bridesmaids and you’re just asking them now??? I remember back in March when I was at one of his family functions and I asked his cousin if he was excited abut being in the wedding (It was more sarcastic because men don’t get into it that much) and he said “Whose wedding? I’m in your wedding?” Jay is a mess. I really hope he told the other guys about the tuxes. I have a deadline for the 2nd week of August. They better have them paid off by then. I have enough to worry about.

On top of all that, I found out some stuff about my former bridesmaid.

See, I originally had 8 bridesmaids. I asked all of my girls around April of ’07. I know that’s early, but I knew who I wanted to stand beside me on my wedding day. One of my friends (We’ll call her “Erin”) said she would love to be my bridesmaid. See, me and Erin have been REALLY good friends since 2004. We even call ourselves sisters. We have been through a lot as far as school and family so I knew she would be there for me. Well in October, I told all of my ladies in advance that we were going to have a bridesmaid get-together so we could have lunch and try on some dresses. All of my bridesmaids who was in town attended, but not her. She called like 10 minutes before we were supposed to meet and and told me that her son was sick with a virus and they had to stay away from everything and everybody because it was contagious. Ok, fine. No problem. I asked her if I could come by and give her a gift (I had “Will you be my Bridesmaid” gifts for my girls.). I was even going to just put it on her doorstep so she could just reach out of the door and get it since she didn’t want to touch me. She still said no. Alrighty then…

So, I set a deadline for February to have all dresses paid for. I gave them at least 3 months to come up with the money. Erin called me the week before the deadline and asked for an extension because her money was tight. Ok, that’s fine. I gave everyone an additional 3 weeks to get the money. Well, 3 weeks came and went. I called her and she didn’t answer my calls. Finally, Erin called me in April and said that she couldn’t buy her dress and that she couldn’t be in the wedding. I offered to pay for her dress and I tried to find out why. She was very short with me and just said that she couldn’t afford it. I had to accept that. I mean, I know money is tight for everyone now. So imagine my surprise to see her post pictures all over facebook of her trip to Atlanta. She went to Atlanta about a week ago. She had pics of her in her hotel room, and hanging out around town, popping bottles and what not. That trip was at least 500.00. So, I’m pissed at this point, but I still just want to talk to her about things that have been going on with me. So, I send her a message (I sent her a message because she changes her phone number so much, I’m not even sure I have the right one) telling her that I really need to talk to her because I’m going through it and she said she was going to call me. That was the 3rd. It’s now the 6th and I still haven’t heard from her. I’m very disappointed in her. I was there when she went through her difficult pregnancy. I went to see her almost everyday! I’ve been to all of her baby’s birthdays and when she was going through it with his father, I was always there. So now that I need her, she’s nowhere to be found. I thought about now inviting her to the wedding, but my mom and my other friend said that I should. The invites are going out on the 28th so I have about 3 weeks to decide on her. I want to talk to her about this, but I’m scared I’m going to go off on her.

I’ll write later. I’m getting ready to go out.
