Just when I thought all the wedding drama was over, ha! Its just beginning. The future DH's sister (who is a bridesmaid in the wedding because she is 'supposed to be') is the same age as me but just graduated from her undergrad about a month ago; well, I haven't asked her to do much at all for the wedding...well, now that I think about it, I haven't asked her to do anything. Any who, we had my bridal shower about 3 weeks ago and everyone was there...except her. She showed up an hour and a half late (without a reason) and then left early without asking the other bridesmaids if they needed any help cleaning up or anything. I was really upset and so were the other 4 bridesmaids that she didn't do anything and nor did she offer. I stuck up for her saying no one asked her to help so she didn't know she should have at least offered. Then tonight, I went to the DH's parent's house to put together the favors and I asked her to help since she was there. Well, she laughed and said "no, I have better things to do"; i.e. she was going to wing night at the bar near her house which started at 9 and I asked her at 7. I was so stunned, I just stood there with my mouth open and then walked away because I was about to say something mean.
I feel stuck between a rock and a hard place; I don't want her in the bridal party anymore but if I do that, the DH's parents would be really mad at me. I ask her to do something so simple, it took his mom and I less than 45 minutes to do it. Yet, she laughed it off and made it clear it wasn't important to her at all. I want so badly to ask her to at least not sit at the head table with us; I can not believe how rude she was and how she hasn't helped at all. Its one thing to not do anything or not offer; some people don't know any better. But to blatantly laugh at someone when they ask you to help is unheard of!
Please let me know if people think I am over reacting; I don't know if I am blowing this out of proportion but I feel like this is a bit warranted. I ask for 30 minutes of her time and she laughs at me. I am so hurt and frustrated and upset. The DH said just to brush it off because "that's just the way she is". I find that hard to believe; are people really that callous and rude?
Ugh, I am so tired of drama; is it June 18 yet?????
