Thank you in advance for reading... :)
So, my fiance and i are getting married in a few months. When we got engaged i asked 7 girls to be in my bridal party. I only wanted 6, but my nearly 40 year old cousin would have flipped if i didn't ask her. So i did, hoping we should say no.
We have a rocky relationship. She is jealous of most women, but seems to have the most for me as i am nearly 12 years younger and appear to have the life she wants? She will never say it, but she hints at it. She also has a problem when the spot light is not on her. These feelings make our relationship nearly impossible.
Ok, moving on... My bridal shower was last week. All of my bridal party was amazing except....my cousin. She had a sour face on from go. She stayed away from all bridal party activities like helping decorate, helping with the silly games, and complained when asked to write down who got me which gifts. She wouldn't look at me, sat next to me but wouldnt talk or look at me there. Several people asked me after the shower what her issue was. I even got phone calls. Oy...
After talking to my fiance we decided we cant risk having her sour face up at the altar with us and have cameras capture that. Not to mention, we want nothing but love and happiness surrounding us.
I did what i had to do and let her know i'd be pay for her dress as is it best she not take part in any further bridal party obligations. She then did what she does best and called my sister to bitch about me, except this time my sister let her have it. My cousin thought my fiance and i owed it to her to ask her why she was so down at my shower to which my sister informed her that for once, that day was not about her.
She sent me an email letting me know i have a lot to learn about dealing with people but that she would oblige. I don't know why she said yes to being in the wedding to begin with. I asked her to be in it, i didnt force her.
That is all. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of me...now to see if she comes to the wedding...which i hope she doesnt. Thanks for reading!!
