Well girls what has been the biggest nightmare during the wedding planning. The other halfs family!!!!
I asked my husband to be, sister to be bridesmaid as i wanted to try and get to know his family a bit better and thought some time together shopping may help the whole family get in the wedding mood as they haven't been very interested.
My close friends all are either pregnant or have young babies so would be stressed out in the heat with that so didn't want them to worry about me so seemed like the perfect solution!!!
Well the wedding is now 6 months away and around a month ago i asked his sister to go bridesmaid dress shopping!! Answer: I haven't lost enough weight yet i'm not buying it yet. I bit my lip and thought i'll try again in a month.
Well starting to stress about it a bit now as want to buy the mens shirts to match and other accessories. So i asked her to come to the National wedding show with me in an attempt to talk to her about it and discuss buying one whilst at a big wedding show. She said she had booked the night off work and was coming.
The day before my other half phoned her to say i would pick her up at 9.30am. Its an hour away and started at 10am so thought this was a reasonable time. She replied i can't im on nights i can't get up that early.
I thought she had the night off but understood work is work!!!
Well it turns out she had got the night off work and had decided she had a better offer of a night out on the piss and couldn't get up early to go with me!!!!
To say i was angry was a understatement. She clearly has no interest in actually being a bridesmaid. She wants to pick the dress without me and the examples of the dresses she has shown me so far look more like a clubbing dress than a bridesmaid dress and in the wrong colour which i had already told her about, Turn up on the day and be the centre of attention! She hasn't even asked about a hen party.
Now you would think by that description she was 18 or 19 no she is a 25 year old nurse!!!
I now have to decide whether to keep her as a bridesmaid. I havemt asked anyone else i only wanted one bridesmaid and everyone else being keen and interested have already brought their outfits in the summer sale. Do i have a bridesmaid at all?? I'm concerned with my other half having a best man it will look strange. What a dilemma!!!
