This Can't Be Real, Right...?

Etiquette probably isn't the place for this, but I lurk on this board the most so I thought I'd share--I came across this article:

Scroll down to the 'Bridezilla Buddy' Question. It's just....yeah.

    I would NOT be waiting to be fired as a MOH.. I would have just quit.   

    Who needs friends like that?

    What differentiates an average host and a great host is anticipating unexpressed needs and wants of their guests.  Just because the want/need is not expressed, doesn't mean it wouldn't be appreciated.

    I agree. I wouldn't keep someone like that in my life.
    What did you think would happen if you walked up to a group of internet strangers and told them to get shoehorned by their lady doc?~StageManager14
  • What's horrible is that the stress can't be good for her already delicate pregnancy. What a terrible friend!
  • While she's a horrible bride for treating her friend that way.... I'm more depressed about the story on the bottom of the page about the domestic violence case. 
  • I think it would have taken all my strength not to slap my so called friend who hoped I would miscarry.  I can't believe people act like this!

    Dude, that was a depressing read from top to bottom. From the kid purposely left out at christmas to the bridezilla nightmare to the domestic violence, yeesh. Poor families. 
  • We've had our own issues with pregnancy, and I can't imagine anyone so flippantly making a comment about miscarrying like that. I know some brides go into 'zilla mode and vent secretly about a pregnant BM or MoH but to actually say that to someone...wow. 

    "While she's a horrible bride for treating her friend that way.... I'm more depressed about the story on the bottom of the page about the domestic violence case."

    I just read that--that was awful and disturbing. I can't imagine the anguish that person must be living with.

  • That is just sickening. I would not attend the wedding at all if I were the pregnant MOH. I was actually in a wedding where the bride was pissed when another BM became pregnant. There were many other factors involved, but they haven't spoken since the wedding.

  • I read these yesterday and couldn't believe it.  I almost posted it too.  I never would have believed there were people like this unless I had been on these boards before our wedding....

  • Dear Prudence has to be made up. It's always so over the top crazy.
  • Why do some brides act as though a pregnant woman is some kind of gargoyle that's going to infect all of the photos with the plague? My MoH was 9 months pregnant in my wedding. She looked great. I'll be able to point to her bump in pictures and tell my God-son "there you are!"

    That whole Dear Prudie made me have to stop and take a moment to pray for humanity.
  • It's astonishing how selfish people can be. The whole article was depressing though. The poor mom with cancer...and the abusive boyfriend...

    I would have slapped the bride and left.

    I also went down and read that story. :( How terrible :(

  • Dear Prudie always makes me worry about humanity, and thankful that my problems are relatively minor at the same time. 

    I don't understand the attitude about preggo BMs I keep reading about either. One of mine told me she's pregnant, after a miscarriage earlier in the year, and wouldn't be able to fly to my destination wedding. The only reaction I had was to be excited for them, and tell her she was still a bridesmaid in spirit, even if she can't be at the actual wedding. 

    Am I sad she and her H can't be there? Absolutely, but only because they're among my favorite people, and are a bundle of fun. I honestly can't imagine being anything but happy for her. 

    And if my wedding were somewhere she wouldn't have to fly to, she'd still be in the wedding, no question. I like how one PP mentioned being able to point to her wedding pictures and tell her godson "look, there you are!"

  • Why wouldn't you want a glowing, beautiful bridesmaid?  The MOH should gracefully bow out on her own, whether or not to attend the wedding is up to her.
