I am in need of some advice. One of my bridesmaids has turned into an
emotional wreck. She was very excited when I got engaged. She
was thrilled when I asked her to be in my bridal party. However, as time
has gone on she has become very dramatic. She finds a way to make every
wedding-related event about her and how sad she is that she's single.
She has started posting man-hating statuses on Facebook almost daily. My mom made a
sweet, encouraging comment on her most recent post and she nearly bit my
mom's head off.
When we went wedding dress shopping, she ended up
getting all emotional because she found a dress (wedding dress, mind
you! she doesn't have a boyfriend, and why was she shopping for herself during my appointment?) that she wanted to try on. My consultant had already mentioned
that they don't let people who are not engaged try on wedding dresses as
it is a waste of their time. She spent the whole ride back to her car
in silence and informed me the next day that she cried all night long.
I have tried my very best to be supportive of her and encouraging to her. I understand how hard it can be to watch your friends get married when you are single. I have been there many times! We have girls' nights pretty regularly where we don't even talk about wedding stuff. Not to be selfish, but her negativity is really taking some of the fun out of the planning process. I really need my bridal party to be supporting me and helping me; not turning every wedding-related event into a drama fest. What should I do??
