Maybe a little advice, maybe I just need to vent, but here's my deal..
I am hosting a bachelorette party for my best friend this Saturday with another of our girlfriends, and let me tell you, its been frustrating.
The sister of her FI is 19, and she's got the TOTAL 19 year old mentality. She is one of the bridesmaids, and she has been a pain from start to finish, whether picking out bridesmaid dresses, to complaining who she's walking down with (direct quote about brides 30 something brother- "OMG not the old guy! he's gonna like totally rape me!:) ugh. So, in the planning of the party, she's been b*tching and moaning about being under age, and we have done our best to try to accomodate her. What we all had, and especially the bride, wanted to do was either a pedal pub around town, or do a wine tasting tour in a limo. Well, she can't attend things like that, and after asking her if she'd just be okay with going out to dinner, and then meeting up with us afterward, ya know, cuz its her FSIL's party, not hers, she snots around and pouts and says no, she wants to be in on it. Bride doesn't want to p/o the family, so we just go with it.
SO fine, we plan on going out around downtown here, being in a hotel room, then going out to dinner. Then going back and maybe have a wine tasting (bah, not as fun as a limo) and playing some games. We wouldn't have gotten this hotel room (we're all local) if not for her on the off chance we do decide we want to go out, at least she'll still be "there" when we get back. So its an extra expense for all involved.
It might sound a little lame, but to try and at least have a little bit of the bachelorette party experience Bride wants out and about. I offered to talk to this girl, and/or the mother, but Bride said she'd handle it, and this is the solution we came up with. I'm not about to start arguing with OTHER people's mother in laws... ha.
So, to make this long enough story a little short, Bride saw her yesterday, and she was STILL snarky about the off chance that we'd go out on the town for a while without her. Bride told her she doesn't really want her to drink at the hotel, either, and she gets even angrier, saying she has a right to, etc etc. We don't want to get in trouble for having a minorr consuming alcohol.
It has all just turned into a big bummer and its sad to say that I am just waiting for it to be over with. I know some sparks are going to fly on Saturday, and I just dont know how we should handle the snarky comments and eye rolls that we're all going to deal with throughout the evening. Any advice on how to deal with this child? Thanks
