Okay, I want to start off by saying that I got myself into this situation, but in my defense, I didn’t realize that the situation would turn into the beast that it has become.
Here’s my problem:
I agreed back in February to be my friend’s maid of honor in her wedding. Back then, we were getting along very well, and I was happy that she picked me (she has many friends). Now, as time passed, I noticed that she was getting more and more self centered, which I expected to some degree, but let me continue.
Now, I can barely tolerate being around her. She has become a selfish, self-centered, narcissistic wench who orders people around and has mood swings from hell. I really really wish I could get out of being her maid of honor, but the wedding is less than a month away. Okay, more bad stuff about her: she has been jobless since March, she and her fiance bought a house a few months ago (which I think is insane) and he only makes about 30k per year. She is an obese alcoholic who smokes 2 packs a day and goes to bars by herself about 4 nights per week. She invites total strangers that she meets in these dive bars to her wedding (and bachelorette party, which I had to plan). She insisted that her bachelorette party be held on Halloween, the same night that one of my really good friends is having an awesome costume party (dammit!)
I’ve already spent several hundred dollars on my dress, shoes, bachelorette stuff, and I agreed (reluctantly) to make the grooms cake (which I really really regret). :smack:
Now, I realize that all the bad things I listed about her really don’t have much to do with the situation at hand, I just wanted to show what sort of person she has become.
So does anyone have any advice? Should I just shut up and go through with it, or pick a fight with her and (hopefully) get kicked out of the wedding? I think one of the groomsmen did that a couple of weeks ago (dammit, he stole my idea). Anyway, thanks for letting me rant. I realize that I will probably end up going through with being her maid of honor, but it felt good to share my frustration. One last thing, I actually have had recurrent nightmares about this whole ordeal.
