Bridesmaids
And it begins...

I know a lot of you on here have had problems with the bridesmaids of some sort, and I honestly can say that I was niave and didn't think that would happen to me:) I thought I would be cool about everything and go with the flow. Not so much!

It started last week when I called my BM to tell her about the first fitting and that I wanted to know if she could make it. She said she had to work til noon on Saturday, so I told her that I would make an appointment with the seamstress after noontime. I told her that we can all meet at my parent's place and take a car together because it is about 30 min. away. She said "No" that she was taking her own car because she was taking her baby. Ok........ I am not sure why the baby's dad couldn't take her, cause I know he would be home and wouldn't mind but she is attached to the cutie so no biggie.

Then I called her last night to tell her the exact time. 1:30. We will leave at 1. Giving her lots of time to go after work. She only worked 2 hours cutting hair. Not a lot of stuff to hold her up. I called at 1:15 and she was still home feeding the baby. That was at least 40 minutes away.

I panicked only for ther reason that this lady is staying at home on a Saturday to fit us (it is just a home business), and I really didn't want to seem like a flake to her. I just said, "Ok, when can you be here?" She said by 2:00. I agreed because I figured it would take about that long anyhow and she could just be last to get fitted. It took all of 10 minutes.

I called her again just so I could tell the Seamstress when to expect her( this was at 2:00) and she was still 30 min away!!!!!

I was not a happy girl. Thankfully, my seamstress said we could go and she would wait. I felt pretty crappy for her, but was glad she was ok with it.

I didn't say much to the other girls, but they were saying enough about it. I jsut said "oh, I am annoyed, don't worry but I just feel more annoyed because I didn't want the seamstress to have to wait around). I was really P-oed but didn't want to let it bother me.

I really know this is not a big deal, I am just more worried this may be a sign of what is to come :S

Let her know that you were annoyed with what happened so it wont happen again or she can be aware that you are annoyed so if she does mess up again then you know its a sign of things to come.

I think there is something in the air tonight this is the 3rd or 4th post on bridesmaid vents tonight. I wont even start with mine, 21 days til we leave and no one has even asked me if I need help with anything in fact one of them even wants me to fill out her visa online applic form for her and her FH for the US. Not that Im in the least bit surprised here as they have done nothing at all from the get go as it was anyway.

Wow!  I defianitely would not be filling out the visa.  I seriously am disappointed.  I mean I didn't think it would be all about me, but the ladies I asked I really thought would be there for me.  And all but 1 I can say have really been helpful.  I have another friend that is not in the wedding, but she has helped, helped, helped on countless occasions. That is who I should have had.

Bridesmaids suck haha. So far I haven't needed or really even wanted any help with anything. MY MOH and my friend who is not a BM have offered to help, the others I just need to show up for fittings. So far it's been tricky getting them to do that! I know it's hard for most of them because they all live in different cities and it's hard getting off work etc, but there's only 8 1/2 weeks to go, and I don't even have their measurements yet! eep.

The silliest thing is, on the day, the things I need the most help with they wont be able to do, because they'll be getting primped and primed with me! So I've had to ask other friends to do things like set up the ceremony location etc, and they don't even get the "honour" tag of being a bridesmaid.

haha ok enough about me! I don't really know what you should do, I would probably ask your MOH to sort her out (that's what I'm getting mine to do with one of my BM's who hasn't answered any of my emails or txts).
