So first, I have nothing to do with this wedding, I'm just Facebook friends with these people. I'm not in the wedding, I'm not going to the wedding (though after this I kind of want to see what happens at the wedding), I'm just a quiet observer.
Bride got engaged last January, on New Year's Eve, aw romantic. She asks Friend to be in her wedding, Friend said yes of course I'm so excited for you! So they set the wedding date for April 2014 (this year). Now Friend has been trying to get weight loss surgery (WLS) for sometime and her insurance have her a lot of hoops to hop through and finally hop she did. In June 2013 she has her surgery, Bride is very aware friend is having this surgery and helped her out while she was recovering.
Now it's been almost 7 months since surgery and the wedding is about 4 months away. They all got together to pick out bridesmaid dresses last weekend. Now Bride and Friend haven't seen each other much since Friend had surgery (just both of them being busy), and last weekend Bride realizes something. Friend is now 65lbs lighter and smaller then Bride. This upsets Bride.
Bride has taken to Facebook to whine about how friend should have waited to get WLS, or should have slowed down her weight loss, and how awful it is that she's going to look like a fat bride now!!!! Friend offers to back out of wedding, ok friend says "If it will make you stop whining I'll just drop out of wedding!", which gets Bride in another tizzy that no one cares about her!!! This is her special day and people are ruining it!!!! Some of their friends are actually supporting Bride that Friend should have reconsidered her WLS and scheduled for after the wedding. Friend's responses haven't exactly been e-hell approved.
I'm vowing right here and now to never refer to my wedding as "my special day", I've had a lot of really great special days, this will be just another really great special day to spend with friends and family and make a commitment to the love my life. And I don't care if anyone is bigger or smaller then me.
