Woman who is to get married in a few months goes berserk with maid of honor for not being patient enough to get engaged after her wedding day
And she asks if she is a terrible bridezilla type.
The period of wedding preparations can be nerve-wracking times for everyone involved.
Weddings normally should be a special day about two people falling in love and promising to spend the rest of their lives together – but then there are guests, a toast and possibly a jamboree to be planned.
Having a hitch-free wedding event requires a lot of planning and help from friends and family.
One woman, who is getting married in a few months, is furious with her best friend and maid of honor for secretly stealing her ‘show’ by getting engaged while she’s still in full-on planning mode.
In a tizzy, she couldn’t hide her sore, and she came ranting about the unfairness of it all.
“Am I being unreasonable with my maid of honor?… Obviously, I’m delighted that my best mate has found the One, but I’m a bit p*****d off that they had to do this now”
She had expressed, In what seems like ‘not being happy with her best friend for shifting the focus away from her’.
“We’re in the middle of all my planning, with only a few months left to go… tensions are high and plans are messing up. I need her help with all this, and I’m afraid that suddenly it’s all going to turn into talk about her own wedding
“I’ve waited nearly TEN years to have this wedding, I had to finish college, get well after being very sick, survive my parents both passing, save thousands to afford the bloody thing, and a whole heap of other things. I need this. I need the fuss. I deserve my day, right? I’ve waited so damn long for this.
“On the flip side, they’re together maybe a year, and don’t live together… there was no proposal so I imagine she probably instigated the whole thing.
The post has made over 200 comments from people with overwhelmingly strong opinions on the matter – and some are a bit harsh.
“But I think you know that. Your wedding is very important to you. Her engagement is very important to her. There are no top trumps. One doesn’t outdo the other.” One person replied.
“You sound like a nightmare, you are definitely a bridezilla” and someone else said, “please go sit in a corner and have a word with yourself”. Ouch.
“This whole idea that the maid of honor should take on so much of the wedding planning seems so bizarre to me. Surely it is for the bride and groom” someone else replied.
The bride sounds very selfish, it’s all me, me, me, it’s not just her wedding it’s the grooms as well. Is no one else allowed to have a life of their own for the duration of her wedding planning? Don’t know why it has to take so long and be so expensive and stressful anyway, we planned ours in a few months, paid for everything ourselves and there wasn’t a single argument about anything.
So if you are asked to be a maid of honor, you are supposed to put your life on hold till the wedding has taken place? Errr what now
Grow up and suck it up, if this type of thing worries you, I pity the poor sap you are marrying, wait until you are both unemployed and sickness hits the family then you will have something to grizzle about.
So, what are your views on this? Do you think she is being unreasonable?
