I wish I hadn't had a long time now ex-friend t my wedding let alone as bridesmaid. We've since worked out she's had baby rabies for a long tome and is dying to get married, moving in with one unsuitable man after another, and we can only assume her behaviour was down to jealousy.
She came to a dress fitting, proceeded to tell my mother who'd purchased the dress that I hated it, causing a world of trouble. 3 weeks before the wedding, after an apology and an explanation that she'd not ment what she'd said as it came out, on we go.
Day of: Myself, MOH and her husbands got up at 7am, as we had 1/2 hour shower slots, and two 8 month old babies to ready along with ourselves. I put breakfast on (mmm bacon) MOH showered, her and other bm (who'd just arrived) took over breakfast while I showered etc, MOH's husband fed and dressed both their baby and mine (total star). Where was ex-friend.....she'd gone back to bed, waiting to be served., and preventing us using the living room. She finally surfaces, takes 45 min in bathroom so we nearly miss the taxi.
At the hairdresser she took 20 minutes to decide on a style, (should have been done in advance) putting us behind.
refused to carry her dress and shoes on to the house incase she chipped her nails.
Was absent during the entire getting ready process.
Refused to smile for pictures.
Had a crying tantrum in the reception.
Got outrageously drunk.
Told several people that the other BM's were picking on her.
Even took the groom's drink as she decided it had been bought for her.
Decided to tell several guests that I was really unhappy as I hated my dress.
Played scrabble with a guest on the toilet - loudly.
I could go on but you get the idea, obstructive attention seeking behaviour from start to finish. I sad my wedding caused me to loose a friend, but wish I'd seen through her sooner.
