Good point. Can you imagine how stressed you will be if this goes on much longer, especially in the weeks leading up to your wedding? I'd say that Courtney came up with a great way of talking with her. Seriously, if she can't step up then she needs to be honest with you. You need someone to support you and not to add stress!

That's nuts! You shouldn't be having to do all this extra work. I strongly agree with the last sentence to that quote!

*Side note* Why is her boss paying for her kids to go...?

She works from a Dermo..they make alot of $$ and don't have kids. They are always paying for her kids to do things. She's worked for them for like 15 years.

Lisa, I'm sorry she's acting this way!!! You are right, she should just stay at your hotel since she doesn't have enough money to stay for a whole week!!! I don't blame you though, I would pissed too!

OK, this is so not what you need right now! All of these things would be fine maybe like A YEAR AGO!! Jeez. You really need a friend there for you before & during the wedding. I'm not so sure this one is going to do that for you. Demote her ass!

Already, she's skating on thin ice with you, AND she asks you to do the research for her? Oh dear. She obviously doesn't know that she's crossing the line so as Courtney suggested, tactfully let her know that you're going to have someone that has less responsibilities step up to help out with the big stuff since she's going to be with her daughters probably a good bit and even add in something like you know yourself and you'll probably need someone to help you run through some mental checklists before and possibly during the ceremony. I mean, you're going to be a bride in full blown 'this day's gonna be perfect' mode and you need one of your girls to be available to have your back fully. As long as you word it right, no feelings will be hurt.

 

The passport thing.... ay vey. Please just urge her to get on that now and tell her some of the horror stories of it taking longer than anticipated and well, then you're short a MOH.

 

Good luck!

I seriously just lost it on her when she called. I don't think she thought I was serious though.

 

I'm going to calm down, and I'm going to call her tonight and give her the option of stepping down.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
