I know a lot of people probably have had this happen to them, but it happened to me today and I'm still a bit sad.
I had asked my younger sister to be my MOH, and some of my friends to be my bridesmaids. I knew that they weren't all besties, but I figured that they'd be able to be mature enough to get along and be there for me on my big day.
My sister and I have been having our little spats, and I'll be honest, I have had regrets asking her to be my MOH, but I wasn't going to say anything.
It still hurt to get a call from my dad asking to let my sister off the hook. She apparently really hasn't been getting along with one of the other bridesmaids, and was feeling like an outsider, and he thought it'd be less stressful on both her and I to just have her as a guest. I'm stationed on the other side of the US, and haven't been able to see everything that's been going on with my sister and my friends, but I'm not surprised by it. She's also never really expressed any interest when I've tried to talk wedding stuff (and I don't go over-gushy with details, I was just asking for her help in picking bridesmaids dresses, and asking her opinion on small things. You know, stuff a MOH would normally be happy to help with, especially if the bride is her sister.)
I'm hurt that she wasn't able to tell me herself. I know she'd only 15, but she still shouldn't have sent my dad to tell me that she didn't want to do it. I wish I didn't care so much about her complete lack of enthusiasm about me getting married.
I don't know... Maybe I'm just being whiny... Thank you for reading, anyway.
