#WhatTheHellHappened: To Amanda, Whose Maid of Honor Was A Living Nightmare!

For this week’s #WhatTheHellHappened, we caught up with Amanda who wrote in to @AskMomAndSpawn, because her maid of honor was behaving more like a maid of HORROR in the lead up to her wedding. Like seriously, who complains about the bridesmaids dresses…TO THE BRIDE? Whine amongst yourselves, but keep that shit off the bride’s radar. @CrazyJewishMom, thought Amanda was being a little overly sensitive (read: GROW UP! Listen, be happy you’re getting married and not on track to be alone and get eaten by a herd of your own cats like MY spawn.” ).

So, #WhatTheHellHappened? Here’s a refresher on “Amanda’s” original story, and an update from her below!

“I’ve been planning my wedding since June, and we are getting into the last 100 days, and I only regret one thing about my wedding: my maid of honor! She has been probably the hardest person to deal with. First, she hated the bridesmaid dresses, then even when I agreed to go shopping but had one rule no chiffon she had to make a snide comment about it in front of my Step-mom. Who being great responded “didn’t you already have your wedding?” Well that being said, even with a new bridesmaid dress she’s been a jerk. Another bridesmaid texted everyone to remind them to get their dresses ASAP, and my MOH threw a fit and chewed me out that someone else texted everyone. Even though I asked her to in two months before this and she still hadn’t done it. Then she made a comment about how much the dresses cost ($160) So I offered to help her out since she said she didn’t have the money. Well, today I found out even though she doesn’t have the money for a bridesmaid dress she had the money to go on vacation over the weekend, and I’m furious. What on earth should I do?” – Amanda

So, #WhatTheHellHappened to her?

“To be honest, my wedding day work out perfectly and my MOH stepped up a little and took about 200 calls from my mother-in-law the day of the wedding. I was so excited to get married to my husband. Honestly, I couldn’t have cared less about anything else. I was just so excited to marry him that nothing else mattered! So, moral of the story is, if you pick the right person to marry everything is just extra! “ – Amanda

@CrazyJewishMom: Do you see? I’m always right. I’ll take a bow.

@KateFriedmanSiegel: I agreed with you on this one, mom!! But congratulations, Amanda! We’re so happy that your wedding went well, and we wish you a long, happy marriage and life!

@CrazyJewishMom: If the mother in law keeps giving you trouble, send her to me.
