One of my best friends, Maria got married this past spring. At the time I was 6 months pregnant and was having a pretty rough pregnancy (had to quit both of my jobs because I kept almost passing out and had gone a few times to the ER to get checked out because of the pain I was experiencing). Mostly she was a great bride and wasn’t very picky or anything. She had asked me before the New Year to be in her wedding after kicking one of her other bridesmaids out.
All was great until her bachelorette party. At that time she got extremely offended that I (at that time I was 5 months along) couldn’t go to her bachelorette party at a bar. I had just been in the hospital 2 nights before because of the pregnancy! I figured if that was the only rough spot then I would be ok. She was very laid back about everything else. She didn’t care what jewelry we wore to the wedding except no bracelets (that was our attendants gifts) and told us she didn’t care what shoes we wore as long as they were black and had some sort of a heel. She then told me I could wear flip flops to the ceremony since she knew of my pregnancy issues, which her mom immediately vetoed. Oh well, I have a few pairs of short-heeled black shoes I could wear.
The day of the rehearsal dinner I showed up wearing the pair of shoes I was planning on wearing to the wedding- about 3 inch high wedges that I never would have worn except they were extremely comfortable. She then tells me she doesn’t like them and doesn’t want me to wear them. Ok whatever. I have another pair of shoes in my car- black leather kitten heels- that were admittedly nicer looking. Nope. No go. She doesn’t like those either. She then tells me she wants me to wear my black leather 4 inch high heel pumps. I almost smacked her. I wore them to make her happy but almost passed out during the wedding because I wasn’t used to the height of the shoes. I’m getting married within a year and I know they’re planning to start trying to have a baby before then.. If it does happen I sure as hell won’t be asking her to wear 4 inch high heels to my wedding!! 0307-13
