3 of my supposed BF's not coming

Recommended Posts

Ok...I apologize in advance for how long this is going to be, but I just got yet another e-mail from a "friend" that said she isn't coming to our wedding.  And I REALLY need to ventgirl_werewolf.gif

 

Here's the deal with these 3 girls.  I have known them for about 15 years and we were college roommates.

 

Here's the back story..

 

About 3 1/2 years ago, I moved to Houston with my Ex and 2 of the girls got pregnant with their first child.  I ended up moving back 3 months later and they were less than responsive to my return.  Didn't care that my ex and I broke up, that I moved back only to live with my sister and her family, didn't have a job, etc...it was stressful to say the least.  But they ended up getting mad at me because I didn't spend enough time with their newborns, despite them never inviting me to their bbq's, etc.. they had.

 

Fast forward to a year and 1/2 ago, my mom and FI's mom dies within 2 months of each other over x-mas and valentines day.  My mom's death was unexpected, so needless to say I took it pretty hard for many reasons that I won't get into now.  But when FI's mom got really ill, FI was visiting his parents in MN (my mom died the day he flew out to MN) and his mom literally went into the hospital the day after he came back home to be with me after my mom died. I was not OK at all.  My mom wasn't married, so my brother and I had to do all of her estate stuff alone.  My mom's family wouldn't help either.  We had to pay her bills, arrange to sell the house, clean the entire house out, etc...But on top of that stress I had to deal with my FI dealing with his mom dying!!!  You would think that we were so great together during that time, but truth is we almost broke up.  It's way too hard to be there for one another when you are both in so much pain!  I was over-reacting, temperamental, stressed, mean, etc...Well one of these girls e-mailed me and let me have it, this is her e-mail  "Do I think you are mean-YES, Do I think you are a bad girlfriend-YES, Do I think you are a bad friend-YES."  I bawled and told her she had no idea what I was going through and to cut me a break and she went on to say that I am all those things all over again.  When I went to MN for FI's mom's funeral, 2 of the girls went on to tell all our college friends at a party that I was an alcoholic and if I wasn't careful I was going to end up like my mother. Talk about the meanest girls EVER, right!!!???  Well, I ended up forgiving them...Not sure why.

 

Fast forward to now.  All 3 college roommates have informed me that they "can't" come to my wedding.  Mind you, I was in ALL 3 of theirs and spent no less than $1000 on each.  One of them actually had a DW that I was in.  1 said she can't go because her husband is in the FBI and the FBI won't let them travel to Mexico!??? the 2nd one said she cant go because of money and her son's health (I actually understand this one) the 3rd said she can't go because of money (this is the one that had a DW).  Ummm....she has been to Sonoma, Aspen and NYC just this year!  I don't know why I am even surprised at all, but it still stings!  But now they are like, we want to plan all your parties, blah blah blah!  UM, NO Thanks!!!  They actually just helped me decide that I am not going to have an AHR.  I just can't believe they aren't coming after everything I have done for them and their kids!!!!!  :(  But I am done. 

 

OK-Thank you all very much!!!  I feel better!

Ya, that's what I thought I wanted when I first got engaged, but now I think, it's just time to let them be.  I have been hurt too much by them and was hoping that they would make it up to me by coming to my wedding.  I tried to tell myself not to get upset if they didn't come, but that didn't work!  HAHA!!!  :)  Thank you!!!

Sorry to hear about all of that! My thoughts are this: The people who don't come to your DW are the ones losing out. My FI and I talk about this all the time. His cousin's got married in Italy a few years ago and we didn't go, but they always tell us too that you are surprised by the ones who actually come and the people who you really thought would go don't. Don't sweat it, you will have the time of your life with the people who care most about you and your FI. Our best man still hasn't booked his room so we are kind of in the same boat.

 

Good luck with everything!

I am fine now.  I have just done SO much for these girls over the years!  Again, including being in all their weddings and flying to Cancun for one of them.  I am just tired of being hurt by them.  But it is what it is, and I have come to terms with them not coming, but it may change our relationships forever after the wedding, but honestly, it's totally time for it to change anyways....Just didn't want to come to terms with our relationships possibly ending. 

 

That's why this thread is so great, I just needed to vent about how hurt I have been by them over and over and I just lost it that day is all.

 

But thanks for the advice!  :)

I agree with the rest of the ladies . Sometimes ppl only care about themselves and what you can do for them. My fiance is going through the same thing. He works about 12 hrs a day. Comes home is is up on his laptop doing more work. Majority of the time I can't even reach him, he's so busy. His beat friend,his best wo-man lol textes him yesterday saying. I'm not a needy friend but you don't make time for me. I'm honored to be your best wo-man but I don't know....like what the hell does that mean?! I was so upset! I want to call her but FI said not to get involved. We are 6 mths away . Ppl are so selfelish. I sympathize. Sent from my ADR6300 using Tapatalk

Yep!  My FI is so sick of hearing about it, so I decided that I have to go back to my motto of it is what it is.  I just wish I could have stayed feeling that way and not get so upset about who is NOT going to be there.

I am glad you can come here to vent.  It sounds like this shows you that you are definitely needing to move on from these women who can't even be there for you.

 

Good luck to you and enjoy your wedding

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
