Friend being slightly difficult...
I'm getting married in mid November. I have 5 bridesmaids, one of which is an old school friend. I've had the impression throughout my engagement (since Dec 13) that although she feigns happiness for me she's a bit envious. She never shows any interest in my wedding and makes a fuss about things. Namely:
- I sent round a picture of the bridesmaid dresses (I am paying for everything) and she said she didn't suit 'long dresses'. Never received positive feedback from them and she took ages to send me her size.
- At my engagement party she was as miserable as sin and moaned that she ''didn't know anyone'' all night despite everyone else muddling along really well. All she did was spend the time moaning to my mum about how she didn't know anyone. I was glad when she left early.
- Plus one. She finished with her boyfriend (who she treated appallingly) in March and of course, he was invited to the wedding as well. She's been whinging about the plus one issue ever since. I've told her to bring someone else if she wants but all she ever says is that she doesn't know who to bring. This is the only wedding conversation we tend to have. To be quite honest, we are very pushed for numbers and by allowing her to bring a plus one (she already knows lots of my friends anyway) we cannot invite someone else, it is that tight.
Not really sure what my question is to be honest but i wonder if anyone else has found themselves in this position? I am not someone who bores people rigid about my wedding but i wouldn't mind her taking a bit of interest in it.
