My Maid of Honour feels like she has to compete with my at my own wedding

She was telling me that there was this soda at her college and that it made her sick but she lost 3 pounds from him so she says. She asked me if I considered this Bulimic and I said yes because your drinking it to make you sick, but then she says she likes it and it doesn't make everyone else sick. I told her yeah but not everybody's body is the same and you getting sick means it irritates your stomach so it isn't healthy if you kept drinking it. She got mad at told me that she NEEDS to be skinnier than me. How would you handle this?

  • I would be irritated. She's probably just jealous and looking for some way to one-up you since it will be your special day. I'd find someone less spiteful to be your maid of honor, however, even if you have to stick with her, know that it's your day and no one is going to care about how she looks. No one goes to a wedding ceremony and oohs and ahhs over how great the maid of honor looks, trust me.

  • Tell her you got skinny eating TUBS Ben & Jerry's ice cream!!! LOL Then, on your wedding day you'll look even better!! LOL

    Any "friend" who felt the need to compete with me on MY big day, wouldn't be a friend for long!

  • I would just find a new maid of honor, I would be too afraid she would try to actually ruin the wedding or reception somehow

  • Let her be skinnier than you. What's the difference. All eyes will be on you anyway not on your bridesmaids or maid of honor. You aren't in competition with anyone. You are your own beautiful self. Being noticed because she is over-thin is not a good kind of noticing anyway. YOU are the one who will shine on that day.

  • Who cares what she says, just remember all eyes are on the Bride. My made of honor ended up trying to destroy my wedding on the special day. She threw a tempter tantrum and made a big ass of herself in front of everyone. Don't worry about her, everything will turn out just fine.

  • It's YOUR day, not her's. Ditch her and find yourself a new maid of honor. I wouldn't have ever put up with that from my maid of honor, or from ANY of my bridesmaids!!
