Crazy Crazy Crazy Bridesmaid!!!

Here is a taste of the spamming that I am gettingâ€¦I have told her numerous times that in no way will we be making solid plans until we are in Jamaica.
â€œWere you still planning on getting drinking glasses for everyone?â€ â€“ YES
â€œâ€Were we still planning on having a group outing to Margaritaville? I want to do that. I also want to eat out at least 2 more times. I also want to go on a booze cruise. I will go ahead and book this now, can you just give me the names of the people going?â€ â€“ OMG we are staying at and ALL INCLUSIVE!!
â€œI have read that if you tip, you can get into the ala cartes without making resos. I am going to do this every day. You should too.â€ â€“ Great. Let me just tell my fam to bring a bunch of extra money for that free restaurant.
â€œDo we have Mammee Bay booked at all for the rehearsal dinner? If not I have to go there, because itâ€™s the best.â€â€¦..then a few days laterâ€¦â€Are we eating at Mammee Bay for your wedding dinner?â€â€¦.then a few days laterâ€¦. â€œWhere is the rehearsal dinner?â€ â€“ I donâ€™t know. When I know I will tell you. Scratch that, you will find out in Jamaica with all the other guests.
â€œAre you upgrading your room? I have read bad reviews of the standard rooms. I am going to email the travel agent and have her make them upgrade me. I will tip them if it comes to that.â€ â€“ Well, we booked a Jr. Suite. That is all we are willing to pay for. If they are nice enough to upgrade us for our wedding, then yey!
â€œI am going to e-mail this tour guy I found who has room for 12 on his bus. I want to go to the falls Thurs AM so I need to know who else can go. I also want to go into town and shop and go to some restaurants. I want to do this early in the stay vs. late in the stay because of the wedding and packing and stuff () â€ â€“ Well I have already told you Thurs is probably out. Not changing my stance on commitments!
Those have all been over the past week. There are literally like 30 texts from her, and I thought it was over after a reprieve of a day or two. Then todayâ€¦
â€œDo you have anything on for Friday? I really want to swim with the dolphins but itâ€™s a rip off. I want to think of all the possible activities for Friday. The last Falls climb is at 4 so we have to go earlier.â€ â€“ Well, again, we have people coming in on Friday. And our rehearsal at 5:30. I told her MAYBE we can go at 1.
Havenâ€™t heard anymore, and wow this is long :-)
Just thought I would give you all and idea of ONE CRAZY BRIDESMAID!! This girlâ€¦I just have no words. Such a sweet person, but please, just give me a break. Its not like I havenâ€™t been planning a wedding or anything!!

I think you can tell her "I recognize this is a vacation for you and I want you to do whatever you want. Go on a booze cruise, to the falls,etc. You need to recognize that this is also my wedding and a vacation for other people and I can't rope myself or others into obligations right now. We will know more when we get there."

I wonder if she knows how annoying that is. You should copy and paste all her q's into an email and send it to her and be like, "look, i love you and all, but do you realize how much pressure you are putting on me?"

just tell her to relax! it's vacation and everyone can decide what they want to do (instead of heaving her decide for them!)
good luck with her ;-)

She is really Type A. I am too but not nearly that bad. She was like that for the Las Vegas bach party too. Drove everyone crazy.
