This is mostly just a vent but feel free to comment. Wedding was six days ago. Honestly, I was supportive of bride on her day, I was also very sad and emotional. More than I ever realized I would be. I managed to be fine all day except during the speeches. I just became very sad. I tried not to show it - but yeah (I am a total sap). And I felt awkward almost the whole time. Bride told another bridesmaid my sadness was stressing her out (I wasn't like bawling infront of anyone. I just seemed teary and aloof). I told her not to worry about it and to focus on herself and her day.
I waited to today to email her (six days later). Thought she might not read it right away. I admit I could have waited longer - but I just wanted to move on. Let it go. Have some fun. So I was a little selfish I suppose. I did have like 2 close friends and my SO read it. They said it was honest, I shouldered some of the blame and wasn't making accusations. I was just stating how she
made me feel this last year and that in maybe a year she should go back and reflect on her actions. I left it open to her. She just texted me "weddings are the ultimate test to a friendship. You failed". She also texted my SO that I'm crazy and selfish. And deleted him from FB. Her husband also texted me several insults and deleted me, my so, and 2 of our other friends who I admitted questioned her behaviour too. Wtf?
Not what I was expecting. I was just expecting nothing to be honest. I didn't think she would be thrilled - but I didn't expect this. I guess - you guys were right - showing up wouldn't fix it. At least I tried. I can say that much. I am pretty sad though. Sigh. Thoughts? Is it me or was the reaction a little over kill?
