I am reading this thread and it is what i needed to hear/see at this moment.
Believe it or not my MOH had a bridezilla moment on me last week. I had to pause and ask myself whose wedding it was.
here's the story
From the moment I mentioned i was getting married she took itt upon herself to look for wedding dresses on my behalf. You might say but that nice, and really i thought it was but the thing is we have different stlyes and all the dress she was recommending really reflected her style. ok so i didn't say anything bad just that that wasn't the one.
Then when we mentioned destination wedding, she ran with the idea started negotiating flights with the travel agents on our behalf. I was ok if you wanna do that that really nice of you. Turns out it took a weight from my shoulders and i was happy and I mentioned this to her on numerous occassions.
Then it came to my wedding colors. I told her i wanted to use Navy and fucshia. Her first response was pick another color because that color won't look good on her because she has dark skin even when on to say when my wedding is over and my pics come back ugly don't say she didn't tell me. Well I was like that's the color and that's it.
Now at this point I am only having a MOH so I didn't think picking a style was right so I told her the only stipulation on the dress was that it should be navy.
I thought that was the end of it, almost everyday she will be telling she found nice dresses but in different colors, then it was can I wear black. Of course I said hell no.
A few weeks later she asked me if I was gonna wear a veil, now the one thing i was sure i wasn't gonna wear is a veil so i said not I will be wearing a flower but not sure if I want a pink or white (i am leaning more pink than white and I told her that).
She then tells me decide quickly and her exact words were " tell me soon because i want to wear flowers in my hear and I would much rather wear a pink one". Still I just pretended I didn't hear because as the Bride I thought I had preference in choice.
Now this is when it moment really revealed itself, last week she sents me a pic of a dress she wants to wear to my wedding. a long dress with a small train with a mermaid silhouette made in taffeta. now the length of the dress is not an issue the problem is the train and the fact that my wedding dress I chose is a mermaid style and also why should she want to wear a dress that formal for a destination wedding beach style.
believe everyone I mentioned this story to who knows her seems not surprised by her actions as she loves being the centre of attention. but seen that it is my wedding and she's also my cousin I thought for a moment she will take a back seat.
so I told her after seeing this dress that I don't want her to wear it because of the reasons outlined above, to my surprise she told if she can't wear this dress find myself another MOH and that it seems like I don't appreciate her help and this is all about me. News flash isn't it my wedding?
This moment completely turned me off, I so don't need this right now.
And the weird thing is she got married 2 years and I wore the bridemaid dress she pick without hesitation. I had 1 request to shorten it a bit as it was length between the ankles and the knees. she said no and I left it as is, because it wasn't abt me. But it seems when it comes to me she can;t do the same.
believe me there are other instances where she wants to turn this into her wedding moment but it's too much for this thread.
Sorry Tiffanya21 for hyjacking your thread but I just wanted to vent.
