Bridezilla Moment!

I had my first bridezilla moment!  OMG... 2 months before the wedding and I thought I'd beat it, but no... it came out when I least expected it :T  So tomorrow, I'm having a bridesmaid luncheon... it'll be the FIRST time ALL of my bridesmaids will be together.  I was soooo excited and have been emailing them for a week about it.  Well I just got an email from my MOH saying that she can't make it.  I still haven't heard from anyone else, but just assumed they would come because they knew how much it meant to me.  I cried.  I emailed my MOH saying, "You better be joking...", and then I turned into a complete Bridezilla!  I emailed EVERYONE and said that this is the day BEFORE the lunch so I expect everyone to be there.  It's ridiculous that I'm getting an email the day before or no emails at all.  None of my bridesmaids have confirmed.  I feel like I'm going above and beyond to include them in the wedding.  I've been going out of my way to text them, email them, send them updates about the wedding... and NO ONE has replied back to me.  I know that a lot of them have things going on in their lives, so I don't ask them to tag along to anything or to take time out of their busy lives to help me with lil projects.  I'm a lone ranger... the solo bridal party... I'm a one woman team :(  It makes me so sad.  Then I took it even further and explained that if they don't care at all to be in the wedding then I have no problem taking them out of the wedding.  I know... it's mean... but honestly, I have NEVER been mean during the wedding planning.  I've been nothing but sweet and attentive... I feel like I'm their damn cheerleader.  It's seriously wearing on me...


So my MOH emailed me back apologizing and said she'll be there.  One of my bridesmaids apologized as well and said she'll be there, too.  Still waiting on a few more.  I'm usually one to keep quiet and just let it go... I guess it took the bridezilla in me to wake them up ;)  LOL.  I'm feeling better about it now, but I hope they'll try harder to be more involved.  I hate crying :T

I'm sorry it had to come to that.  I will admit though, unless you've been in weddings where another BM has lead by example, people have no clue.


They should have BM training 101. Seriously.

That's very true.  I actually emailed them the Bridesmaid 101 website so they had something to go to in case they didn't know what to do lol.  Obviously, they never read that email ;)

wow!!! That is super lame...unbelievable how people just say, oh sure I'll be a BM and don't do anything that is normally expected of them. I mean really? Not showing up to a BM luncheon??? No one needs an instruction manual on THAT! :(  I guess it helped putting your foot down. Sounded like they would have just taken advantage of passiveness.

@Jen - http://www.bridesmaid101.com/ lol... they really do have one ;)


Yeah I'm definitely glad I exploded because they realized that they needed to step it up as my bridal party.  I apologized of course for having to go that far as threatening to kick them out of the wedding (lol), but they had a good laugh :)  I think it's good to let it out sometimes and just have that moment of release... it definitely relieved some stress I was having and the girls eventually came to my rescue and showed me a good time :)
