What a momzilla!

Monday, September 05, 2016

This weekend, I went to the bridal shop with my friend so she could pick out her wedding dress. It was fun and she found a dress pretty quickly! She fell in love with the third dress! She tried on just a handful.

I was unaware of any tensions between the families. Well, her mother in law to be made it crystal clear who was paying for the wedding. She even blurted out how much she was shelling out for the event. She repeatedly said she wants contracts for the wedding and will sue and go after anyone who fails to make the wedding classy and perfect. Not only that, but she also told my friend that she needed her to put her foot down and make her mother stop her bad behavior. I saw no evidence of this horrible behavior but I am trying to stay as neutral as possible.

Basically, what I saw was someone abusing the fact that they are able to pay for the wedding.

I don't think my friend should marry her fiancée because he takes after his mother with the controlling behavior. I asked her if she wanted to study in the library once and she said he doesn't like it if she stays late. Also, yesterday, he called at least 15 times in the span of 4 hours. Not to mention the 4 of 5 times he called his mom! We were not even an hour away and even if we were so what! I would never put up with it and I would never want to marry someone whose family showed zero respect for my mom.

Oh, and his mom wants us all to buy our bridesmaid dresses from the same boutique. Excuse me, I am pus size person. I can't go to a skinny mini boutique! Truthfully, I don't know if I will have the finances to participate.

Every time I meet someone nice, there is always something. She is so sweet too and I never get to see her much.

Her mother in law to be was nice to me but I didn't like her behavior.

Afterwards, I talked to my friend and told her that just because her family can't contribute doesn't mean people can just disrespect them and their opinions are still valid. She was stressing and I just want everyone to be treated respectfully.

    IT's a tough one... I have had the experience of not liking a friend's fiancee... seems like speaking up can spell the end of the friendship, as they will often choose the fiancee over the wise friend... but sometimes it's hard to keep quiet. I have lost a friend over speaking up.

    I am glad your friend has you and she will listen to what you say. Ultimately, though the decision to go forward or end things is hers. I know you will be there for her to support her. You are a great friend and she is lucky to have you!
