One of my best childhood friends is getting married and has just asked five of us — all very close friends — to be her bridesmaids. We're all thrilled for her and we haven't properly celebrated her engagement yet as a group so I started planning a little event for the week we are all home for the holidays. Everything was going fine until I ran the idea by one of my fellow bridesmaids — the typically single and bitter one of the bunch — and she said "that's fine, but can we just do an early dinner and wrap it up quick? I have a flight the next morning and we are obviously going to be devoting lots of time to them in the next year." I'm of the "leave when you gotta leave" camp so I couldn't believe it! We haven't even started wedding planning and events and she's already trying to cut it short. She certainly owes the bride and groom one nice engagement toast and smile, right? How do I help her improve her bad attitude and tell her she sounds bitter without making things worse?
